Fred Kirn

Hi, my name is Fred Kirn and I am the dinosaur on the Board of Directors, not because I’m old, but because I am the last original member and held the distinction of being the Board’s first President. I am the father of two young ladies, Amy and Gabrielle, and the spouse of Mary for the last 29 years. Gabrielle, a child with BiPolar and severe anxiety disorders, challenged my education and experience in the mental health field for most of her adolescence and young adulthood. Even with advanced degrees in counseling and 24 years of experience in the field, it was impossible to be your child’s therapist and father at the same time, so enter the Federation, with its parent support, training in IDEA and education.

I am retired as the Region VII Field Program Manager for Children and Family Services (CFS), where I oversaw public child welfare and child mental health. Previously I was the Chief of Children’s Mental Health, supervising foster care and adoptions, and was a practicing child therapist. I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling from the University of Idaho and a B.S. in Psychology from Washington State University.

I am patriotic, being born in Washington D.C. on George Washington’s birthday, in the Garfield Memorial Hospital. I enjoy golf, or as some say, am a fanatic about the sport. I do maintain a 10 handicap, which isn’t bad for a guy who didn’t take it up until his mid-40s. I love the outdoors and do a lot of hiking and backpacking in Idaho, Arizona and Utah. I am an Apple Mac lover and believe everyone should be one too. I have an artistic side, painting and drawing, and photographing the great outdoors, from Yellowstone to Arizona’s Superstition Mountains to the beaches of southern California.
