Kathryn Hughey, MA, LPC
Kathryn sees clients in both our Johnstown & Fort Collins office locations!
As a Christian, I understand how defeating it is to be told that my problems would be solved if I would just read my Bible more or pray more. I believe our faith journey is not meant to be walked alone, and often that means seeing a counselor who can walk alongside you for a portion of your journey and help guide you to inner healing and teach you practical coping skills to live life both more freely and more fully.
I received my B.S. in Psychology from the University of Phoenix and my M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University in Alamosa, CO. During my Master’s program, I received experience working with couples, families, and individual clients ages 8-80 through my practicum at Timberline Church in Ft. Collins, and my internship at 70West Counseling in Wheat Ridge, CO. After graduating with my M.A. I worked intensively with teenagers who had experienced significant trauma and exhibited high-risk behaviors at Remington House in Ft. Collins.
Now, I work with a variety of mental health struggles, with specialty’s in trauma and anxiety. It takes great courage to seek counseling and my goal is to meet each individual where they are with compassion and understanding. I use EMDR and a combination of DBT and CBT techniques specifically tailored to each client to provide relevant, practical, and compassionate counseling services.
I also work with individuals who are just going through a rough patch and need some help learning to cope. We all go through hard times in life, and having someone who is supportive to come alongside us can make the difference between a successful outcome and staying stuck.
Issues I work with:
- Distance Counseling for Missionaries and Their Children
- Grief After Suicide
- Spiritual Struggles
- Parenting Support
Invite Kathryn to Speak:
I have been privileged to be invited to speak on different issues in the Northern Colorado area. I love engaging with groups and teaching practical skills and techniques for better engaging in relationships, to better understand their teens and communicate with them and to address the scary issues that cause parents and youth workers to feel ill-equipped to handle them.
Those topics include:
- Teen issues
- Parent-Teen Relationships
- This includes equipping and training individuals, youth staff, other church staff, students, and school faculty to confidently handle the issue of suicide when it comes up.
Here in Colorado, our teen suicide rate is two times the national average! My heart and desire is to see this become drastically reduced. I believe this is done through as much education and equipping of any person who works with adolescents or has kids themselves.

Since then I have been in private practice focusing on working with teenagers and their parents, but also seeing couples and adults.
