Dr. Kim McKay-McNabb
is a First Nation woman from George Gordon First Nation. She completed her MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology. She has a diverse private practice, where she works with individuals, families and groups. Dr. McKay-McNabb specializes in culturally responsive therapies and trauma informed practice. She dedicates part of her practice to the families of the Missing and Murdered Women and Girls, mothers who have experienced children being apprehended and the rejuvenation of these families as well as working with the most vulnerable populations who struggle with substance use disorders. She is currently working on a Strategy for Suicide Prevention with the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, developing a Model of Care for a Family Wellness Centre with Muskowekwan First Nation and recently joined a team working on an Urban Indigenous Health Centre – each of these projects being the first of this kind in Canada.

Dr. McKay-McNabb has worked in several different capacities in her career including being an Assistant Professor in the Science Department at the First Nations University of Canada for eleven years, when she decided to leave and pursue her own practice. She has been the lead and co-lead in over fifty research projects over the past fifteen years with Indigenous health community-based projects. Much of the work that Dr. McKay-McNabb does is guided by Elders and Knowledge Keepers. She has numerous publications and is currently working on a book.  

Dr. McKay-McNabb has been recognized over the years for her commitment and dedication to the First Nation communities in Saskatchewan.  In 2004, she was presented with the “Circle of Honor Award” for Women’s Leadership presented by the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FSIN). In 2015 she was recognized once again for her commitment to education by being awarded the “1st Annual Strength of our Women Award” for Education presented by the Saskatchewan First Nations Women’s Commission through the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations. Throughout her post secondary education she has been the recipient of several National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation Post Secondary Health Bursaries. She was awarded the Doctoral Award from Canadian Institutes of Health Research in 2006-2009.

She is a First Nations woman originally from Sakimay First Nation and when she married her husband of 27 years she became a member of George Gordon First Nation. Her family is very important to her and she would not be where she is today without them. They are her inspiration. She currently resides in Regina with her husband, Patrick and her two youngest children, Shay, Isaiah and she is a Kokum to three granddaughters Kearra, Irelynd, Knightly and a grandson Knox.
