Having to send a child to Wilderness and then on to Therapeutic Boarding School was one of the lowest points of our lives and yet we realize now that we were truly blessed to have met Krissy. With her vast experience, eclectic knowledge, and abiding wisdom, Krissy has guided us through darkness and deep despair into the light and an ultimately successful outcome for our family. It has been an 18- month journey so far. During this time, she helped us “stay the course” when every fiber of our being wanted to “rescue our child.”
Krissy’s lighthearted, humorous, gentle, and especially non-judgmental nature never failed to lift our spirits. I always appreciated her many stories and her use of metaphors to simply illustrate concepts which she felt we needed to deeply understand and begin to implement. I have worked in the medical field for almost 30 years now and have met many people along the way, but Krissy Pozatek stands out as one of the most gifted and talented people I have ever met. I wholeheartedly recommend her to “everyone” because I think that anyone would be lucky to have her as their therapist! We are forever grateful to her for her brilliant insights, her amazing skill at teaching us more appropriate responses, and most importantly, for helping us to heal our family. Susan P.

I so enjoyed the time we spent each week talking on the phone. We find you perceptive, insightful, and a credit to your profession. We will be forever grateful to you….. ( Parent of adolescent)
After we successfully navigated A’s 18th birthday at his program, his growth trajectory was pretty steady. His therapist now refers to him as the “poster student.” The coaching we I received from you really helped us transform our parenting. It has also been really cool to see a positive parent-child relationship begin to develop and take hold. You really helped us hold firm and stay the course when we weren’t sure the program was working. It WAS working, big time. We are so thankful for the support you gave us at that critical time.
I think we are in a good place for A’s transition home. During his home visit he connected with a recovery coach he likes, went to a recovery group, and I have found an excellent therapist I think will be a good match. He is looking forward to finding a job and continuing to look at colleges. He is excited to attend the Teen Institute Summer Leadership Program in August. Lots of positives! I really can’t thank you enough for your help! (Parent of adolescent)
I found Krissy to be prepared, engaging and she shared knowledge in a warm and easy-going way. The workshop was surprisingly worthwhile. (workshop participant)
The workshop’s greatest strength was the presenter. Krissy is an incredible listener so she knew how to direct all the teaching. (workshop participant)
