Rebecca (Becky) Parkey is a Marriage and Family Therapist.  Becky has been married to her husband for 15 years, and has a sweet daughter.  They decided to move to Nevada from Alaska to be close to family and for their daughter to have more opportunities.

Becky received her Master’s Degree from a University in Kansas, where she later went on to teach Adjunct courses in Diversity, Group Dynamics, Internship 101, and was a student intern supervisor.  During the first 5 years of her career she served in the role of family therapist and liaison with children who had been reported for abuse and neglect in both her internship and post graduate work.  She worked with the court system and her main goal was to keep children in the home with their parents when safe to do so.

During her next phase in her career, she moved on to work for the Kansas City Department of Veterans Affairs.  Here is where she found one of her passions.  She loved working with veterans and their family members.  She did individual, couple, and family therapy.  She was able to learn and become certified in six evidence based therapies ranging from multiple trauma treatments, to treatments for the whole family, to domestic violence treatment for perpetrators.  Each one of these evidence based therapies have shaped how she worked with adults, children, couples, and families.

After approximately 5 years of working in this position as well as concurrently teaching as an adjunct professor and supervising students, Becky decided that it was time to take her career and her life journey to the next level, so she and her Husband and daughter moved to Alaska.  She became a Supervisor over a clinic in Juneau, Alaska.  Approximately 2 short months after moving there, she was promoted to Clinical Program Manager, with it adding 3 additional clinics across Southeast Alaska to supervise. In this role Becky has conducted trainings, been the trainer for the behavioral health department, as well as created an on-boarding program for new-hire employees.  Becky oversaw all of the Behavioral health grants, which consisted of local, state, and federal grants, and worked with all of the partners to ensure compliance, and budgetary needs.  Becky oversaw hiring for the Behavioral Health department, and was the Human Resources liaison for all of behavioral health.  It was imperative for Becky to ensure that she showed leadership and understanding throughout the consortium and community.  This is part of the work that she wants to spread in the next phase of her career.
