Kate McNulty, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Portland
Curiosity and imagination can be our greatest sources of strength when we encounter difficulty in life. I have a down-to-earth approach and provide active, engaged therapy with plenty of feedback. Everyone can benefit from developing their emotional intelligence, and I help you generate possibilities when you have lost perspective. The best help I provide is often through raising thoughtful questions. My training encompasses work with individuals as well as intensive experience with couples. I especially enjoy helping people with relationship improvement and making relationship decisions. I use a systematic approach to these concerns and you can expect results.
I see my job as helping you develop an inner observer. Expressing confusing feelings more precisely or noticing body sensations can be useful. Part of our task is understanding how your thoughts, emotions and behaviors fit together. We may even use diagrams, pictures, whatever it takes to help you move forward.
I am open-minded and accustomed to working with people from varied cultural backgrounds & lifestyles. Certified in Negotiation & Mediation, Certified in Scientifically-Based Couples Therapy through the Gottman Institute in Seattle, also AASECT certified as a Sex Therapist. I enjoy helping with infidelity, couples communication and sexual concerns.
