My name is Katherine Tessler, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have worked in outpatient settings for the last 7 years, with children, adolescents, and adults. I now focus on helping adults struggling with symptoms of depression and/or anxiety, often due to recent life changes or stressors, and who just want to feel better on a day-to-day basis. Many of my clients have gone through recent transitions, such as graduating college and entering "real world", changing careers, getting married, having their first baby... I am here to support you in adjusting to your new normal.
Because I believe every person is unique, I aim to "meet the client where they are." This means that I do not come from only one theoretical approach, but rather work with each individual to come up with a plan to best support their needs and goals. That being said, I often incorporate CBT techniques in my practice.
Every person and situation is unique, and I believe you are the expert of your life. I am grateful to have the opportunity to go on this journey with you to create a healthier version of yourself - one that can manage life's stressors in a positive and sustainable way.

I believe we carry core beliefs about ourselves, our lives, and others that play a role in how we perceive and internalize what happens around us. I will help you identify these core beliefs and we will work to rewrite any that are not continuing to serve you in a helpful way. You bring a great deal of strengths to the table, and I will be here to help you recognize and foster them.

While we will definitely collaborate to find a treatment approach that best fits your needs, i often gravitate towards Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as I believe our attitude and mindset can have such a strong impact on how we feel and act. We will decide together on your short- and long-term goals for therapy, and adjust the course of treatment as needed in our time together.
