Anne Arundel Public Schools, CNN, Discovery Channel

Dr. Seifert has a vision of hope that is sorely needed in our schools and in professional counseling circles. She brings fresh insight to problems that many think are unsolvable. And her commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of kids is relentless. I was both shocked and inspired. She is an incredible lady.

On Al Smith's Radio show on Well and Wise Online

Dr. Seifert and I have worked together on a couple projects over a number of months. She has wonderful insight in many areas of psychology. Indeed, CNN thought so highly of her that she was interviewed on Anderson Coopre\'s program regarding the Tuscon Shootings. Along the same lines, I had the pleasure of discussing the effects of mental and physical abuse on childrren and how that manifests itself on those people through adulthood. I would highly recommend Dr. Seifert professionally. And as I have come to know her through our work together, I kow that she is a caring person as well. Al Smith

My agency has benefited from Dr Kathy's presentations on
several prior occasions and on
February 24, 2011, she presented a workshop on identifying potentially dangerous people and working with them so as to minimize or control the risk to oneself. We are happy to be able to work with Dr Kathy because
she is original, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic and those qualities
are conveyed in her presentation style. She has a well-honed ability
to speak to a mixed crowd of experienced professionals and newer
paraprofessionals without talking down to anyone or speaking over
peoples' heads. We request evaluations from our workshop participants
and Dr Kathy has always rated very high both in content and style. I
am certain you will be pleased with her work.
