Welcome to the Counseling Department!

Welcome to the Counseling Department's Website.  Let me introduce myself.  I have been a school counselor for over 20 years and have a heart for children and their families. My mission is to develop responsible, self-confidant, self-directed leaders who are motivated and goal-oriented as I support and encourage students, parents, and teachers. I oversee the counseling program at Elevate and supervise the Counseling Interns who are graduate students in the counseling profession.
At Elevate, I teach a social skills curriculum twice a month in each classroom, run friendship groups for those students who can benefit from extra support, and meet individually with students as needed. This is my sixth year here at Elevate and I am excited that I have the opportunity to be on both campuses several times a week. 
When I am not at school, I work at Living Water Counseling in Carlsbad where I am the Director of Counseling and have my own private practice. I love hanging out at the beach, working out in the gym, and spending quality time with my family. 

If you have any questions about Elevate's counseling program, please feel free to contact me at kkirk@elevateschool.com or, during this Distance Learning season, on my Elevate google voice phone @ (858) 356-2425.
