I work individually with adult women of all ages. My goal is to support the whole person by encouraging use of her strengths to discover new possibilities in life, and to identify and question thoughts and behaviors that aren't helping her move in a positive direction. Acknowledging the past yet focusing on the present, we collaborate to build resilience and flexibility for facing life's challenges: maintaining healthy relationships, dealing with life changes, illness and loss, work stresses, as well as conditions like anxiety and depression.

With over seven years of experience in the educational setting and cultivating lifelong partnerships through empowering women , my areas of expertise include therapy for individuals transitioning into new careers, adulthood, relationships, or simply looking to find themselves.
**Immediate openings for new clients**. When was the last time you checked in with you? I’m not talking about your children, partner, your friends, your colleagues, but I’m talking about you. How often do you evaluate your current place in life, then set realistic goals to accomplish life’s milestones? Are you constantly thinking that there has to be more, but you just need help trying to figure it all out? I am here to assist you. My job is to help move you away from the things that no longer work, perhaps they never did, and towards a more ideal way of being.

I have a particular interest in working with women and couples around issues of infertility and pregnancy loss.
I AM NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. People's reasons for seeking therapy are as varied as the individuals themselves. For some, therapy is part of a broader approach to life in which insight and inner work are seen as core elements to living well and expansively. For others, the step to seek therapy is taken out of pain and suffering and after much deliberation. At times our internal experiences are so painful, they prevent us from fully engaging in our lives and relationships. Therapy can help you learn to hold with care and confidence all your thoughts, feelings and memories while moving through life in a meaningful way.

Hi, I'm Katie! I help women and girls thrive in their relationships while living boldly and authentically. So often we can feel stuck, especially in relationships - friendships, romantic relationships, or with family members. Maybe you are exhausted from giving so much of yourself to avoid conflict, or you are so focused on what other people think about you that you neglect yourself. Deep down, you don't believe your feelings and needs matter as much as other peoples'. Maybe you are a mother who sees her daughter struggling with anxiety and low self-worth. You want to see her thriving, but you don't know how to get her there.

Are you stuck and needing to process childhood trauma? Do you feel like no one understands the challenges and heartache of infertility (miscarriage, pregnancy loss, IVF or adoption)? Is your child sad, anxious, or angry, and you know they need help? I shifted careers into mental health counseling in 2016 after 20 years of community work to end violence against women and children. The last 8 of those years, I rode the infertility rollercoaster myself. I am a therapist now because I believe you - and your family - deserve a chance to feel guided and supported on your journey.

I specialize in women 's mind-body wellness, particularly related to peri- and postpartum mental health, working through sexual and interpersonal trauma, and increasing self-respect and self-acceptance.
Struggling with anxiety, relationship difficulties, and major life transitions can be incredibly overwhelming. Often times it can feel like we are controlled by painful thoughts and feelings or repeating harmful patterns that alienate us from our authentic selves. I have expertise in treating difficulties including anxiety and over-analyzing, feelings of insecurity or anger toward yourself, and difficulty identifying what you want in life. My clients are typically motivated women , graduate students, or working professionals. I draw from evidence-based therapies that will help you get space from painful thoughts and feelings.
