Welcome to the Counseling Department!

Welcome to the Counseling Department's Website!
I am Kathy Kirk and have been a school counselor for over 20 years and have a heart for children and their families. My mission is to support students, staff and parents and inspire them to be leaders who believe in themselves, care about others, work hard and dream big! 
I supervise an amazing team of Counseling Interns who are pursuing their Master's in School Counseling. Elevate is looking forward to being able to soon welcome a Military Family Life Counselor to our Counseling Team.
I am at all three of our campuses twice a week. Twice a month, I love teaching our SEL (Social Emotional Learning) lessons in every classroom. This is called H.E.R.O. time and stands for:

     H - Here E - Everyone    R - Respects    O - Others & Ourselves! 

When I am not at school, I work at Living Water Counseling as a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 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: [email protected]
