Kaleigh’s mission is to help parents understand their young children’s frustrating and challenging behaviors and teach them new tools and skills to connect with their children and foster the social and emotional skills needed to succeed in life. She is trained in Child Parent Psychotherapy, a counseling method focused on attachment and healing parent-child relationships after exposure to trauma or violence in children ages birth-6.
Prior to becoming a therapist, she worked as a pre-K and elementary school teacher and a nanny and found that she loved working with young children. Upon becoming a parent herself, she gained a new appreciation for the overwhelming challenges that parenthood can bring. She felt called to help other parents navigate these challenges, drawing on her expertise in child development, education, and mental health.
Kaleigh is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and received her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Edgewood College in Madison, WI in 2012. She has practiced in a variety of settings, including community mental health agencies, crisis response, and school-based settings. She has also taught a course in child and adolescent counseling at Lewis & Clark College in the Professional Mental Health Counseling Program.
In addition to counseling, Kaleigh is a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator and helps parents enhance their skills and knowledge by teaching parenting classes and workshops, as well as speaking engagements. In her free time, she enjoys spending time outdoors hiking, camping, biking, or just playing at the park with her son.
