Life-giving relationships begin with changing the kind of relationship you have with yourself.
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.

My specialties include anxiety, depression, panic attack disorder, relationship issues , codepency, trauma, and grief/loss through a strength-based lens using CBT, DBT, and SFT creatively tailored to fit your needs.
You made it! You may not feel like you’re making it right now-and that’s totally okay. However, take a moment to reflect that you’ve made it to THIS moment in search for hope, understanding, growth, and relief. You’ve already made it through frustration (scrolling through hundreds of strangers faces to find a therapist), hopelessness, sadness, anxiety, trauma, and much more. I want to walk beside you through the difficult feelings you’ve been experiencing to help you create a life that you don’t just make it through, but actually ENJOY!

I offer individual and couples counseling and have experience working with individuals struggling with life transitions, anxiety, relationship issues , self-esteem, depression, sexual issues, LGBTQIA+ concerns, obsessions/compulsions, and trauma.
Welcome! Oftentimes when life gets too hard or too overwhelming, it's difficult to know what to do or who to turn to for help. In fact, letting others know you need help is often the most difficult. But you're here. You've taken the first step to healing and I'm so glad you did. I practice from a person-centered perspective, meaning I walk alongside you in your journey at your pace. I also incorporate skills from other modalities as needed. You are the expert of your life and it's my job to honor that, to help provide clarity, and to offer tools to navigate life's most difficult challenges.

My approach draws on one's strengths to overcome obstacles to a more authentic and fulfilling life. I believe it is important to take time to fully understand an individual's unique life and concerns. The most common concerns clients come to discuss involve relationship difficulties and/or feelings of distress, worry, or sadness. Many of my clients are feeling intense stress due to changing life circumstances. Through therapy new perspectives and ways of coping and/or solving problems can be found.

**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** You give so much of yourself to others. Still, you're falling short of expectations. That unconventional perspective of yours has fueled your creativity, but you worry that people don’t really “get” you. It doesn’t help that you have anxiety in social situations. Even your closest relationship feels increasingly tense and disconnected. My name's Leah and I help individuals and couples like you find your way to calm, balance, and connection.

I work with individuals & families for a variety of concerns including: • anxiety • depression • relationship & interpersonal concerns • transition/adjustment issues • emotion regulation • grief/ loss • parenting issues • childhood behavioral issues at home & educational settings • learning differences • executive functioning issues • pregnancy & postpartum .
Most of us at one time or another find ourselves in places where we may experience heavy emotional pain. We all want to be seen and heard, but sometimes problematic patterns can develop as a result of trying to get our deepest needs met. I've been a therapist for over 15 years and offer a relational treatment approach informed by cognitive behavioral theory, mind/body awareness, and trauma informed care and compassion. I envision therapy as that quiet space where together we find healing and develop new perspectives that enable you to connect with your truest self and live the life you desire. Licensed in NC, NY, & OR.

Doing psychotherapy is a lot like playing jazz: The challenge for me as therapist is to stay in tune with the patient's own creative, self-healing process and to provide a safe container ("rhythm section"). The patient's life narratives are the "melodies" to be composed, developed, & improvised. My ideal patient is motivated to show up and do the work involved in creating/healing and to allow the therapeutic relationship to support the work. My private practice (The Androgyny Center) serves adult patients of all genders. I also do consultations with families and professionals regarding developmental issues re gender and sexual orientation.

With over 20 years of professional experience treating depression, anxiety, relationship issues and struggles with food, weight, body image, and disordered eating, I believe all mental health symptoms are there for reasons. Our work is to uncover those reasons and discover more effective means of caring for self. Exploring family dynamics, life experiences, personal beliefs, and both conscious and unconscious aspects of Self are all part of the therapeutic process. In therapy we work with the conscious and unconscious material which surfaces in the psychotherapy room as well as bringing attention to thought and behavior patterns, developing insights, and strategizing solutions.

We may be a good fit if something below stands out to you: • Relationship and attachment trauma • LGBTQIA+ identity and exploration • Challenging family ecosystems • Feeling neglected, rejected, or abused by parents • Boundary setting • Communicating needs • Learning how to be your own friend • Isolation.
My goal is to hold a space for you to share your pain, and help you gain access to what you really feel – maybe for the first time. If you are curious about your emotions, or wonder what they are even good for, or feel like you have actively avoided them for years, our sessions will be about slowing down and giving them a large pasture to graze in. Emotions may seem overwhelming but I am here to support you in the process of contacting them; therapy can be messy, and that’s okay. You don’t have to know the answer.

Therapy is mostly a corrective helping relationship , but technical training is equally important.
I help clients walk the pathway back to emotional well-being and secure relationships, all while feeling supported and affirmed. Through the 15+ years of experience as a therapist, I provide state of the art therapy for couples, individuals and families, tailored to the situations and needs of clients. Depression, loneliness, divorce, frustration and despair isn't inevitable. Security with yourself and stable relationships with others are possible with help.

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative, creative, evidence-based, results-oriented, flexible, and holistic. People often arrive at psychotherapy when they want to deal with problems, alleviate emotional suffering, make a change, move in a new direction, or find well-being. I try to balance acceptance and change, acknowledging that the first step towards change is accepting reality. I think the therapeutic relationship needs to be a real and genuine connection. I value being kind, genuine, thoughtful, direct, honest, and playful as a person and a therapist.

My special focus is close relationships. I help couples rediscover positive feelings, communicate better, work through conflict cooperatively, and repair the relationship after tension or hurt. I can help heal the wounds of infidelity or other emotional injuries. If you disagree on something, I stay neutral while helping you learn how to communicate in a productive manner, and how to make decisions together. I take sides only when someone is doing something incompatible with a healthy, satisfying partnership, and then I take the side of the relationship . I do so by speaking directly to behaviors like addiction, hostility, dishonesty, etc.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Durham relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Durham.
