Katie's Availability: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 10am-3pm
Finding the right fit when looking for a therapist can be a challenge. It can be such a relief to find a therapist who is a good fit for you. I love accompanying clients on the journey of self-discovery that the therapy process can instigate. Right now, you may feel stuck or simply be struggling to get through another day feeling anxious or depressed. You may be navigating painful relationships- or upheaval in a formerly good relationship. Perhaps things are going well, and you'd like to process some past experiences or learn new skills. Bringing a professional counselor on board can help you move towards healing and growth.
My approach is integrative, meaning I draw from a variety of approaches in collaboration with each individual client. You are one-of-a-kind, and I believe your therapy experience should be as unique as you are. My therapy toolkit includes somatic, trauma-focused therapy utilizing EMDR, narrative, family systems, and feminist approaches that I can draw from to support your goals for therapy. The overarching themes of my work are creativity and connection. I believe therapy works best when you feel genuinely heard and supported by your therapist, and free to be authentic.
I work well with clients who have found it difficult to connect with past therapists or are new to therapy and aren't sure where to get started. My past clients have mentioned feeling supported and encouraged in our work together, as well as appreciating that I give feedback and help highlight themes I see in their process rather than just asking questions. I enjoy working with adults of all genders, sexualities, religions, and racial/cultural backgrounds and believe it is important that you know all aspects of identity are welcome in our work together. Couples and families welcome.
I have experience working with a variety of areas including depression, anxiety, self-harm, grief, neurodiversity (ADHD, Autism, AuDHD), chemical dependency, abuse, religious trauma, body image, couples, and family systems. Humans are complex, and it is important to me that my clients feel they can bring up multiple different issues and be supported.
