Michelle Naden Director KIC is largely the product of a driven visionary, Michelle Naden. As a family therapist who recognizes potential in everyone she meets, Michelle cofounded KIC after befriending the artists who make up this organization. Inspired by their work, she saw that together they could transform lives.

Michelle was raised in a family of artists, several of whom were dedicated musicians. She herself learned piano from the age of five. She later witnessed how music took her father to new life opportunities when he pursued his passion for choir and directed a chorale ensemble. To combine her interests in music and people she pursued a minor degree in music, a masters in family therapy and a doctorate in sociology. She has 30 years of experience in education and private practice working with children, adolescents, adults and families.
In her career she has often recognized both need and talent, had the vision, and has taken the initiative to see projects to fruition. She was central in beginning an international graduate program through Loma Linda University and coordinated this program as an extension of her faculty position. She directed clinical training in two accredited Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) graduate programs. In this capacity she designed and implemented a curriculum for training therapists that focused on the development of the self of the therapist as a core competency area. Michelle also started a family therapy clinic in conjunction with a graduate training program in MFT at Seattle Pacific University. In addition to being a training site for MFT interns, this clinic specialized in offering therapy support to adults with special needs.
Most recently Michelle founded Collaborative Family Therapy, a private practice made up of six therapists on Bainbridge Island with a special focus on family therapy and the treatment of children. This innovative practice offers a team approach between the pediatricians and MFTs that creates the engagement of multiple health care professionals around the whole person care of children and their families.
When it comes to Kids in Concert, Michelle again sees a unique and holistic approach to human development, this time through the combination of music and improv. "What excites me so much about KIC is not only will beautiful music be made, but children's lives will be enriched, perhaps even transformed because of their involvement. I am eager to make the gifts of KIC's incredibly talented faculty available to all children, particularly those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to learn music in this way, financially or for any other reason."
Michelle brings her dynamic energy also to her own home, where she lives with her husband and their two daughters who are both deeply immersed in musical education.
