I treat adults with concerns about business/school performance and creativity, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, childhood sexual or physical abuse, adult trauma , alcohol/drug problems, HIV/AIDS, PTSD , codependency, adult children of alcoholics, and self-esteem.
You can improve performance, achieve goals, and feel well, even though you may have doubts. Sometimes you may be unaware of what actually causes you to feel as anxious, depressed, indecisive, guilty, overwhelmed, or angry as you may feel. With stress arising in relationships or work, you may sometimes wonder, "Why is this happening to me again?" I collaborate with my clients to plan strategies to resolve stress so they can feel more in control and confident. I also assist with performance enhancement to foster improvement in public speaking anxiety, social anxiety, test anxiety, work inhibition/procrastination, stage jitters, blocked creativity, etc.

Sojourn means "to stay for a time in a place or to live temporarily". This is my view of our life on earth. It is a temporary stay, and our time here can be difficult, confusing and painful at times. Sometimes, we need help navigating. I believe that we each have a unique story and set of experiences that make us who we are. What we believe about ourselves and the world around us impacts how we feel and respond to life. I'd like to help you navigate life so that you may have the most abundant life possible.

I utilize trauma -focused therapies such as Brainspotting and EMDR for trauma and attachment wounds.
Hi! Please call me Kat. While change can be done alone, it is often fragmented and limited to our self-awareness. I believe that the transformative power that comes from a safe, supportive, and empathic relationship can act as a fertilizer and accelerate personal and transformational growth. It is through connectedness and relationships that we can see our blind spots, discover our incongruences, and get in contact with our more authentic selves. Pursuing change in a vacuum can often leave us in a feedback loop. We may need help to redirect our focus and energy towards a more productive path.

I specialize in areas such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma & substance abuse.
I believe that authenticity is the gateway to the soul. When one needs help, it is often times difficult to become completely vulnerable enough to disclose to others and accept what life may throw at us. When we learn to expose ourselves wholeheartedly with someone we trust, I believe this is where true connection is established.

I am trained in and have experience working with clients struggling with addiction, anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma .
One of the first things I tell clients who struggle with mental health disorders or overwhelming stress is that in today's society, with all the turmoil and uncertainty we face, it is a natural and normal reaction to be struggling mentally. While there is still a large stigma towards mental health and therapy I believe a great way to combat this is by understanding that it is not weakness to seek help, it in fact takes great strength to reach out to someone and admit that we cannot do this on our own.

I have been able to assist clients with issues relating to depression, anxiety, stress, substance use, and trauma to get to the core of these challenges.
I believe each person has the power to make a positive change in his or her life. In this ever-changing world we are surrounded by life’s challenges. As humans, we all experience difficult emotions like anger, sadness, fear, loneliness, and shame. I find that we often reach for external resources to help alleviate these internal experiences. However, I believe each person has the capacity to learn and grow the power within themselves to cope with these feelings and challenges. Through therapy, we can discover this power.
