Kaj Anderson '71MS, CSW, LPC
I’m a transplant to Beloit, coming here to Beloit College from Ft. Benning, GA during the college’s field term years. My father was a career Army Officer, and his assignments took us across the country and to Panama as I was growing up. My ancestral home is St. Croix, USVI. I’ve worked a number of human services jobs, with the bulk of my career at Rock County Human Services working with a variety of settings, most of which have been in the community. These include being a liaison from the county to all of the secondary schools and beyond, including Beloit College. I have also worked in traditional clinic settings, mental health and AODA inpatient hospitals, and the Juvenile Detention Center. My last setting was the Community Support Program helping people with chronic and severe mental illnesses live in the community and out of more restrictive settings. I retired from Rock County this year, which gives me more time to pursue my passion for music. I’ve also been lead guitarist for several bands throughout my adult life. In counseling, I tend to use a non-directive, eclectic, cognitive approach that allows for flexibility in the therapeutic process. I am looking forward to being back on campus.!
