Kathy Roe

Family School Liaison Counsellor

Hello, my name is Kathy Roe and this is my eighth year as a Family School Liaison Counsellor for the Palliser School Division. 

I have a Masters Degree in Counselling and have worked at several schools, and in private practice. I have been married for 45 years and my husband and I have six, adult children.

I am very grateful for the experience I have had, for the last seven years of working with the warm, kind students, families, and staff here at MSCS.

In my work as a school counselor, I have worked, one on one with students, supporting them with concerns ranging from self-awareness, emotional regulation, self-care, social skills, sadness, anxiety, worries regarding anything from friends to family to school, and anything else that may be on their minds.

In my counseling office, I try to provide a calm, quiet environment where students can share their concerns, hopes, dreams, and hurts. We do artwork, play games, talk, and work on understanding what is going on. We also work on strategies for change.

I am here every Thursday and every other Tuesday. If a student, family, or teacher feels a student might benefit from seeing me they can email me directly, contact the teacher, call or ask the front desk to contact me. Students may drop in to see me for a time or two and if we determine that we want to work on specific goals, I meet with the parents virtually, on the phone, or in-person for an intake meeting.

Meeting with the students, goals are developed and we schedule regular meetings to work on strategies to achieve the desired change, new perspective, or goals.

The faith perspective offered here at MSCS provides a secure awareness of the love and protection of God as we work through life's ups and downs.
