About Dr. Ken Newell

Dr. Ken Newell received his M.S. in Marriage and Therapy at The University of Kentucky.  It was during this time that he pioneered treatment for individuals in distress from trauma, anxiety, and addiction utilizing the entire family in the treatment process.  This work lead to his being the recipient of the Kentucky Colonel Award, the highest honor a citizen can receive for service in the community.   After earning his Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy Dr. Ken continued his focus on abuse, anxiety and addictions.  His doctoral dissertation was published in both The American Journal of Family Therapy and The Journal of Marital and Family Therapy.  In 1999, Dr. Ken started his career by helping pioneer treatment models specific to helping at-risk youth get their life back on track following their struggles in life by focusing on getting into College.  This was a model he and others followed successfully for 15 years.  In 2015, Dr. Ken realized that helping At-Risk youth get into College was a great start but to truly empower them the support needed to continue while they were in College so Dr. Ken joined forces with Nelson Partners, a leader in the student housing industry for many years.  Together they develop and implemented a new treatment model that addresses the many challenges associated with the challenging world of college life by bringing the support and mentoring to students in their Student Housing complexes.
