a. Commissioner Dore claims she is a counselor licensed to practice in the State of Colorado. This claim is made on her website, www.coloradomommycoach.com
i. She claims to counsel in grief, trauma, family therapy and abortion decisions. These are medical practices in Colorado that require licensure.
b. Inquiry with DORA indicates that there is no license for Kelly Dore, under her married or given name.
c. She claims to have a bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Colorado State University in 2000. To obtain licensure, she would require a Masters Degree or Doctorate in a different field of study.
d. The website and its claims have been archived on the Google Cloud
ii. Testimonials of clients, showing she is actively practicing, are archived here:https://drive.google.com/file/

e. As of January 25, 2015 this website was unchanged.
f. Tim Dore, her husband, owns Montezillo LLC which owns Second Chances Counseling LLC through which Kelly Dore practices medicine. He undertakes active management of her practice and is both aware and equally culpable for her misdemeanoring and felonious activity.
g. The repetitive nature of her crime makes it a felony pursuant to 12-36-129 CRS.
i. 12-43-501 CRS requires a license for family counselors. Dore claims to practice family counseling, and that she is licensed to do so. But she has no license, nor the qualifications to obtain one.
ii. 12-43-601 CRS requires a license for professional counselors. Dore claims to be a professional counselor, and that she is licensed. But she has no license, nor the qualifications to obtain one.
1. 12-43-602.5 CRS defines the "practice of licensed professional counseling" as “the application of mental health, psychological, or human development principles through cognitive, affective, behavioral, or systematic intervention strategies that address wellness, personal growth, or career development, as well as pathology. A licensed professional counselor may render the application of these principles to individuals, couples, families, or groups.”
h. The crimes are felonious and misdemeanorous in nature. That both Tim Dore and Kelly Dore are public officers raises additional allegations of Second Degree Official Misconduct (18-8-405 CRS): they are both prohibited by oath of office to violate the laws of Colorado. This is a Class 1 Petty Offense.
