Waleska Houlditch is currently a graduate student in Clinical Mental Health, at Liberty University. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in psychology from Southern New Hampshire University.
Waleska believes that it is important to give hope to those who feel hopeless through their journey in life. Her son’s mental health issues paved the way for her desire to help others who are struggling with similar life circumstances. As a counselor in training, she wants to provide an atlas where individuals can feel safe to reflect on their internal thoughts and feelings, and she always desires for her work to have a meaningful impact in transforming her client's wellbeing.
She also believes that it is important to use an array of therapeutic orientations to assist the client through their counseling progression, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, person-centered therapy, or any other therapeutic formation that will assist in their healing journey. She believes that the relationship between the counselor and client is crucial to the client’s success.
Waleska has lived in Colorado Springs for the past 24 years and has been with her soulmate, Michael, for over 20 years. She enjoys watching and going to hockey games with her husband, and loves gardening, hiking, meditating, camping, and most of all...sitting on the front porch with her husband and their two furry babies watching the sun go down.

Kyle Hazen is a Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) graduate student at Indiana Wesleyan University. He earned his Master of Divinity at Asbury Theological Seminary and Bachelor Degree in Music Business from Anderson University. Before coming to Rock Your Family Counseling, Kyle was a Pastor to Students for ten years serving in Oregon and Ohio. He has been in an Information Technology role for the past three years.
Kyle seeks to create a welcoming, collaborative counseling environment built on mutual trust and respect. The hope is to develop a space where a person, couple, or family can feel comfortable expressing their emotions, thoughts and needs while gaining insight and finding tangible steps to bring
about change. Kyle believes the healing and transformation process is a fundamental part of counseling and desires to help guide his clients through this challenging process.
Kyle brings to the table an MFT background, which means that when interacting with individuals, couples, or families, he seeks to understand them in the relational context of their family and community. His approach is a blend of emotional regulation, cognitive behavioral therapy, and attachment theory. He will also pull in other interventions from Solution-Focused Therapy, Play Therapy, Experiential Therapy, and Internal Family Systems, to name a few, based on the client's needs.
Kyle is originally from Indiana and just moved to Colorado Springs and cannot wait to explore all it has to
offer. He enjoys hiking, camping, playing music, attending concerts, and getting wrapped up in an intriguing story or learning more about counseling and theology. He also enjoys disc golf, baseball, basketball, and tennis, and most recently started to play pickleball.
