My name is Kristin McKay and I am the social worker at the Laura Lee. I earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Boston University and I am licensed as an LICSW and school adjustment counselor in the state of MA. I have worked in a variety of settings including outpatient and inpatient settings before joining the Laura Lee team in 2019.
I provide students with direct social skills instruction in a group format as well as a weekly therapeutic check in where students have an opportunity to discuss stressors, difficult emotions and/or social conflicts. My goal is to support students in developing healthy social/emotional wellbeing.
I grew up and live in Lowell. I am proud to work within my community. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my two kids (7 and 4 years old), my husband and 2 dogs.
