Kay Suttle-Field, LPC Associate
Counselor: Children, Teens, Adults, Parents
Kay has a passion for working with children, adolescents, and parents. Life can present challenges through health, family, or school problems that can affect the way children feel, behave, and learn. Using play therapy, talk therapy, sand tray, creative activities, and mindfulness interventions, Kay helps children and adolescents become self-aware, discover new solutions, improve communication, and increase personal strengths. She also collaborates with parents to discover communication strategies that can positively impact the child and the parent-child relationship. Kay has extensive training and experience working with children and adolescents who have communication and learning needs. Her approach to counseling is interdisciplinary drawing from play therapy, relational theory, person-centered therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
