Founder & CEO, KH Counseling & Inspiration
Kathleen Hassenfratz, LPC (licensed professional counselor) has embraced working with youth for 30 years in various roles: middle school teacher, middle school counselor, chemical abuse prevention counselor, ropes course manager, health and social programs coordinator, teen whisperer (and mom of 2!) She is an experienced counselor and psychotherapist who utilizes cognitive behavioral and experiential strategies to guide teens/young adults beyond life's barriers into a healthy and productive life! She has a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Texas at Austin and Master of Education in Counseling and Guidance from Southwest Texas State (now Texas State Univ). She also is licensed as a Professional Counselor in the State of Texas (LPC) and specializes in supporting young people struggling with anxiety, depression and self regulation. She has a wonderful husband and 2 kids….(and 2 dogs!), loves experiential education (biking, hiking, paddle boarding) and reading/writing.
I first became inspired while working with inner-city middle school students in Austin, Texas. Almost immediately, I realized that connecting with the students in a way that was 'beyond the classroom curriculum' made sense to me; learning about them authentically and connecting with them was the motivator for success (for them, too!)
After being awarded my Master of Counseling and then becoming a licensed counselor/psychotherapist, I had personally moved beyond many barriers to attain my goal: helping other young people succeed in doing what inspires them.
After 28 years in public education, the most valuable 'gift' I have received is the connection with other humans that are passionate about supporting young people's journeys. With each customized workshop, initiative, service project, psycho-educational group or individual counseling session created for your teen, the passion for support and positive life change will amaze and inspire you.
Become inspired through these counseling supports and move toward success, healthy choices and authentic life experiences.
