KEVIN KREIGER is an ardent believer in a counseling process that cultivates the whole human being, and helps foster clear, empowered, self-aware individuals. He supports clients in actively seeking and creating their own futures by thinking for themselves, as opposed to simply accepting whatever lives our old, habitual environments have prescribed for us.
After 10 years teaching writing and language at institutions from U.C. San Diego to Phillips Andover Academy to the Université de Dijon in France, Kevin has spent nearly 20 years as an independent college/graduate school admissions counselor. He also integrates personal/life coaching, and career aspects from internships to job seeking, resumes, and cover letters.
He is privileged to do extensive volunteer counseling and educational work with scholastically-challenged urban communities. In April 2012 he was invited to lead a series of seminars on written self-expression in China and Taiwan.
Kevin also served for 10 years as a Chinese Herbalist and Nutritional Consultant with the renowned Tea Garden Herbal Emporium in Los Angeles, where he specialized in education about personal environmental toxins and organic skin/body care.
His first collection of poems, KAIROS, was released by Tebot Bach Press in 2016. His plays have been read or produced in venues including the French National Theatre/Dijon, U.C. San Diego/La Jolla Playhouse, the Theatre at Boston Court, and the Fountain Theatre. (For more on his literary work, please see www.inspiritwriting.com.)
He holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Playwriting from U.C. San Diego; a Masters in Shakespearean Studies from Oxford University; and a B.A. magna cum laude in English and French from Amherst College, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa.
