About

You are brave for being here. You have done your best as a parent, and yet your child is still struggling. It hurts to see them beating themselves down, and selling themselves short when you know who they are at their best. You've heard them say "I'm not good enough," "no one understands me," or "things would be better if I weren't here." Maybe they've turned to self harm to manage their emotions. You want to protect them, help them heal, and show them the beauty you see when you look at them.
Who were you before the world told you who you could be? How much do children and adolescents sacrifice themselves, their sweet quirks and unique gifts, to conform to the expectations of their peers and society as a whole? Simply put, I want your child to own themselves, in their most authentic form. I employ DBT, TF-CBT, and Psychodynamic frameworks.
In all of my work, I have been struck time after time by the power of connection. I believe there is strength in vulnerability, and telling one’s story is an act of great courage. The honor of supporting your child in exploration and empowerment is deeply meaningful to me. I look forward to helping your child own their story and write their own ending.

Kate Monaghan's Groups

DBT Skills

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based therapeutic modality that has been proven effective in managing intense emotions, reducing self-harming behaviors, and improving communication and relationships. This group will focus on building the skills in each of the four modules of DBT: core mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance. This group is a weekly DBT-informed group for teens who have difficulty managing intense or extreme emotions, struggle with anxiety or depression, struggle to identify or share feelings, engage in self-harm, make impulsive decisions or struggle with conflict at home or at school.
