About Me

Hi! Thanks for looking into Counseling with Kate! My name is Kate Jennings, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have experience working in the inpatient unit, partial hospitalization program, and intake department for a children’s hospital, at a residential psychiatric home, in the juvenile law world, and in multiple schools. I currently work with patients who have primary medical conditions in order to help with their mental health needs. I serve a gastroenterology clinic to help patients cope with chronic abdominal pain, stomachaches, and life with chronic illnesses such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. I attended the University of Texas at Austin where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a minor in education. I then went on to graduate school at Texas Christian University where I earned my Masters of Education in Counseling. I have a passion for parenting, chronic illnesses, and suicide awareness.

If the problem you're seeking help with today was gone, what would look better or different in your life? We will work together combining multiple therapy tools to help make changes in your life to be the best version of yourself.

I feel that every teen can use someone to talk to. We can all be as close as possible with our parents, but there are still a few things that we keep buried underneath. I work to develop a relationship where teens can open and share with someone who is non-biased and can keep confidentiality. We work together to identify how to make small changes to add up to big successes. Thank you for considering Counseling with Kate!

Kate has been so wonderful. I’ve needed her more than anything during such a crazy time and I am just thankful for the concepts and discussions she shared. I’ve never done therapy before and I am glad it’s easy to share with Kate. Just thank you.
