About

Life can be overcome by stress easily, and for some of us that stress becomes unbearable. Thoughts and feelings become overwhelming, leaving life feeling out of control and chaotic. In my work, I bring a wealth of curiosity and compassion to exploring a person's inner world of thoughts and feelings. Through this exploration, clients find deep internal healing and develop meaningful satisfaction in their work, relationships, and most of all within themselves. I am trained in Internal Family Systems therapy, which has given me a means to help people reach their goals and create the life they long for.
IFS allows me to work well with a wide variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, life transitions, relationship issues, and body image struggles. I offer an integrative approach which includes practical skills so that client's have the tools needed to navigate life. Please reference my website to learn more!
I bring my whole self, my whole heart, to my work with clients. I am transparent and authentic, gently direct, and do not blame or shame. I truly listen to a person, attune to their strengths and their needs, and then use my tools and wisdom to provide them with individualized support.

"Most therapy takes place in the private world of the therapist/client dyad, and so we, as therapists, rarely get the opportunity to witness one another at our craft. But I have had the unique pleasure of working closely with Katie over the past several years ..."
