Kasey is currently receiving training in Psychodrama and EMDR.
Kasey’s journey started rather serendipitously, when she was the first nanny to answer a mass text that was sent to over 40 people. She was informed that the family’s matriarch, currently six months pregnant, had just been diagnosed with cancer and they needed an extra set of hands around the house to help with their three-year-old. From the second they met, Kasey and the three-year-old were best friends. Three months later, when the baby was born, she moved in with the family as a night nurse to tend to both children. Their mother continued receiving treatment for a year and a half before passing away.
Having lost her own mother just two years earlier, Kasey felt immense pain for the children and longed to help the preschooler understand what was happening. In the time leading to the funeral, she asked what the little one imagines when thinking about mommy. With wide-eyed excitement, the description included: a big blue sky, trees, ladybugs, hearts, butterflies, flowers and a house. During naptime, Kasey went to the craft store and bought a large piece of sky blue foam board, stickers, and cut sticker foam into grass so it would be easy to make the imaginings come to life. The child was thrilled and when he was finished, eyes filled with pride. Dad asked if it should be displayed at the memorial and the answer was an emphatic “YES!”
The art was prominently displayed at the entrance of the memorial and the child proudly stood by it and explained to anyone that would listen, what each part of the picture represented about the special relationship with Mommy. At one point, Kasey noticed an expression of sadness on the child’s face for the first time. Before she could walk over to offer comfort, the child instinctively grabbed a new person’s hand and took them over to show off the picture. In that moment, Kasey recognized her unique ability to help young children identify, understand, and cope with their emotions. One year later, she enrolled in the Counseling program at Southern Methodist University.
Kasey’s life experiences have contributed to increased recognition of her own inner strength and resilience. This knowledge has led to extensive personal growth, enhanced creativity, and intensified her perspective of what it means to make meaning out of her own life. Exploring her own path has empowered Kasey to help clients of all ages navigate their own path along their journey.
