About the Instructor
Kelley Harris Meshirer, MA, LASAC, CCTP
Kelley Meshirer has served Public Safety since 2012 through various non-profit avenues, formerly her most recent role as Southern Community Liaison to the 100 Club of Arizona. She has experience, leadership and training in areas including critical incidents, suicide prevention/intervention, peer support, and mental health. She has been a first responder spouse to a 26-year veteran of federal law enforcement since 2004. She has navigated several critical incidents and line of duty injuries throughout her husband’s career. The most life-changing in 2018 when he was involved in a line-of-duty shooting incident and survived. She attributes her wellness to hard work and the support they received from her husband’s agency, friends, family, community and primarily her faith. She also greatly recognizes the benefit her family received from the counseling of a trauma specialist.
Kelley is an honors graduate from Liberty University with her Master's in Addiction Counseling, and is currently a doctoral student at Liberty focused on the study of trauma. Kelley's passion for working with first responder individuals, couples, and families has brought her to her current role at Thrive with Chaos as their lead therapist, a private practice specializing in public safety, healthcare and military personnel and their family. Kelley is EMDR trained and addresses addiction, substance misuse, maladaptive coping, communication, habitual patterns, comorbidity, crisis intervention, grief, and trauma as an Addiction Specialist and a Certified Trauma Professional.
