I became a therapist 7 years ago with the passion and drive to connect with people and work side by side creating motivation for positive change in their lives. I have worked with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, various economic and vocational issues, communication problems, LGBT-Q topics, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive; I also like to throw some humor in there! I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I value collaborating with an individual as they are the experts on their lives. I seek to build trust as I am open to all experiences one chooses to share. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, didactic behavioral therapy, strengths based, and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Creating healthy thought patterns, behaviors, and relationships is key to building a strong sense of self and progressing towards a successful and happy life.

LCSW-C #14453 (Expires: 2020-10-01)
She listens and is very helpful.
I want to share that I've valued your patience, perspective and humor (at times) through our sessions together. Thank you for everything. I mean that. There were some things I was really carrying and it feels good to be free.
She’s awesome. Easy to speak with, gives good advice.
I am enjoying my experience so far.
Katie helped my girlfriend to thrive together in a way that I could not have imagined was possible.
Katie has truly helped me understand what needs I have and why they matter. I don't think I would have bothered trying to understand my needs if it weren't for her and I will always be grateful for that lesson. Along with so many others. When possible I will be signing back up and requesting her again 100%
Katie is a personable counselor who helps me find better insight into the issues I'm having.
Thank You :)
I wasn't with teen counseling for long, only one month, and i actively only used teen counseling for about one week. Katie was very kind, attentive, & helpful. Thank you Katie.
Katie has been absolutely supportive and reassuring during a very difficult time for me. I’m so glad I had someone with such a professional manner to share my concerns with and receive the gentle nurturing advice I respond best to.
It really helps that she checks in with me even when I get too busy to contact her.
Katie is great and very methodical in her responses to the things I tell her. She has my best interest in mind and has an understanding of what I am going through. I appreciate her being attentive and responsive through this process.
Katie is a great counselor that I feel very comfortable with.
So far, I like her and feel like she understands what I want to work through.
