Parenting does not come with a book of instructions. I want to reassure you that help is available. I specialize in tween/teen/parenting counseling. I spent over 17 years as a public school high school teacher and that experience, along with my experiences working with substance abuse, bullying, teen and parent issues, allow me to become an instrument of assistance for you. My goal is to help you and your family establish and maintain healthy family relationships and interactions with one another. Together we will work on identifying the underlying issues and relational patterns that sabotage your family's' chance at happiness.

My ideal client would be someone who is struggling with some sort of trauma caused by things they have been through or are currently going through in their life. They want to begin the process of healing from the trauma so that they can thrive and succeed in life. They want someone who can guide them through this process, providing support and encouragement along the way. Through the support and encouragement they receive, they will be able to work through and overcome the pain that has held them back for so long.

Sometimes we find ourselves feeling stuck and overwhelmed. Unfulfilling jobs and relationships, bad break-ups, trouble with loved ones, the stresses of family life weigh us down. Our Self gets lost in the messiness of being human. It’s exhausting. What if I told you, it doesn’t have to be this way? There is a lighter path. You can choose to come home to yourself. To Slow Down. Pause. Breathe. Explore. You can choose to know yourself and learn what you truly want.

It's not very often that males are encouraged to seek help when dealing with the challenges of life. As a result, we resort to age-old adages that tell us to ignore the pain, 'man up', and soldier through it. But the fact of the matter is that we feel, we suffer, and we hurt and it has nothing to do with being a man and everything to do with being a human being. Men want healthy relationships, we want to be happy, we want to feel in control of our lives and be fulfilled. Taking the step towards mental health is an integral part of this process.

Life is complex. There are issues from childhood experiences, major life transitions, mental and physical health, failures, and hopes and dreams that you may face. With these issues, it can be difficult to understand how to get where you're going, or even where you want to go. These issues can impact your life on every level. These levels can be personal, professional, social, emotional, physical, societal, spiritual, cultural or even undefined. Together, let's work to find balance, purpose, intention, clarity, healing, your voice... and even a "game plan" to help you cope with and live your best life.

Hi! I’m Kate. If you’re here, you’re already brave. It takes tremendous bravery and courage to seek professional help, to sit with and process some feelings of hurt. I believe it to be an incredible privilege to work as a counselor. To be trusted with some of the most vulnerable places in an individual’s life is an honor and I will uphold your story with integrity. I believe in the concept of wellness, in healing the whole person rather than a diagnosis or a problem. I consider counseling to be beneficial for all people, regardless of what may bring someone into my space. I would love to work together towards a journey of healing!

Often recognizing that you are in a place where you need support can be one of the most difficult challenges you face. Specifically, reaching out to someone can be quite overwhelming and intimidating. Perhaps you are at a place in your life where you feel stuck? Are there behaviors occurring that creating problems in your home life, school, or job? Maybe you are feeling isolated or hopeless because of the uncertainty going on in the world at this time. Even though it can feel as if there is too much to handle, my hope is that working together we can renew your sense of purpose for your life and create peace.

I tend to practice from a relational perspective, believing that true healing comes from genuine relationship and accountability with one another. I particularly enjoy working with adolescents who have difficulty relating to their families/peers and are typically viewed as the outcasts or troublemakers. I also lead male sex addiction groups and intensives.

It’s time to reinvent yourself. What is life but a series of loves and losses? Who actually gets to escape the up and down carousel? A familiar chorus of woe: “But I’m a good person, this wasn’t supposed to happen. I’m a hard worker, I deserve better! I didn’t see this coming, how could I be so stupid. This was my person, how could they?!? I’m just too sensitive, I should be over this by now.” Tell me most of our days aren’t run by the gods of “have to”, “made me”, “should have”, “could have”, and “I’m SO sorry”.

Finding that sense of security and strength in the midst of changes, challenges, and relationships is difficult, and some feel that taking time to stop and reflect is impossible; yet often it is one of the most important steps in moving forward or getting unstuck. Stopping and working with a trained therapist can help facilitate change in meaningful and impactful ways. It can also help avoid a complete life derailment.
