She is excited to bring her PR expertise and organizational development skills to the non-profit arena. 

Kathy Mackechney, LCSW

"Through my own experiences in therapy, I kept finding myself having to educate my therapists about the issues adoptees commonly face. I saw a need for people who inherently understand adoptees, which led me to become a therapist who specializes in working with other adoptees. It also led me to this group, first as a seeker of support from others who’d gone before me, and then as a helper to those who followed. I believe strongly in the power for adoptees and other members of the adoption constellation to bear witness to, and be witnessed by, others whose stories so closely resemble their own, which is just one of the valuable benefits that members of this community receive."

Kathy is an adoptee and therapist who founded Adoptee Therapy, LLC, to specialize in working with adoptees and their families. Her mission is to increase adoptive and prospective adoptive parents’ understanding of, and compassion for, adopted children’s behaviors in order to provide the nurturing, yet structured, parenting these children need. 

Beth Paddock, MA, LPC

Beth facilitates the ASRC small group support meeting. She is a past co-coordinator for Adoptees in Search, a former Colorado Confidential Intermediary, and has counseled adoptive families, adoptees, and birth parents. She performs home studies and recertifications for Boulder County Social Services. Beth is an adoptee who connected with her maternal birth family in the 1990s.      

David Quint

David discovered his passion for filmmaking as a young boy growing up in Western Colorado. One summer, he and his best friend were given access to video camera. The two spent endless hours outside creating short films with GI Joe action figures, lighter fluid and matches. David has since gone on to work professionally as a director, cinematographer and aerial cameraman filming feature films, documentaries, commercials, projects for Netflix, MTV, NBC, ABC, CBS and numerous other networks.  

 

After more than 20 years of working with state-of-the-art motion picture cameras, he never dreamed he would unintentionally record a life-changing journey on his iPhone 3 when with he and his father Urban returned to an orphanage in Switzerland where Urban grew up. Neither of them had realized how profoundly Urban’s relinquishment 68 years earlier had impacted their family until the truth was finally revealed.  Today David is passionate about spreading the message about the impacts of relinquishment and adoption to the broader public at large through authentically told stories that have the power to transform.
