Kolette Butler is a native Arizonan and a licensed attorney and psychologist in the state of Arizona. She earned her JD at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at ASU (and is friends with many Wildcats too!). After law school she clerked on the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division One with the Honorable Michael J. Brown. She then took a position with a national firm working on cases for Fortune 500 companies. During her legal career, a family circumstance prompted Dr. Butler to pursue a doctorate in psychology. She earned her PsyD from Midwestern University and opened a private practice focusing on forensic psychology, trauma and complex mental health issues.
Dr. Butler’s practice has evolved into coaching teens and adults to identify and leverage their strengths in creating a life they are excited about living. She has specialized training and experience in facilitating communication in high conflict relationships, at home and work. Dr. Butler is passionate about human behavior and helping people transition from enduring life to enjoying living. She is a frequent presenter for groups such as the State Bar of Arizona and the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts and enjoys opportunities to share her discoveries with colleagues. In addition to frequently presenting, Dr. Butler also recently co-authored a book chapter related to forensic psychology. Outside of work, Dr. Butler thrives on nature, time with her people, poetry and time with her dog.
