I have a deep passion for helping people discover their power in the face of life’s adversities. Stress presents itself in a number of ways which impact the mind, body, and spirit. As a psychotherapist, I am dedicated to an integrative whole-person approach to wellness and healing. I am particularly interested in healing the emotional/spiritual wounds of internalized racism, sexism, homophobia and other forms of oppression. I work to empower others to overcome feeling stuck and controlled by distressing emotions, unhealthy behaviors, and painful past experiences.

How are you dealing with the many losses in life? The loss of a loved person, your health, a companion animal, relationships, a job, sense of self. Most of us are taught to not pay attention to loss and feelings of sadness. Yet, ignoring or pushing away waves of loss can compound the difficult feelings, making them bigger. This often means that the losses begin to control us. My practice centers on how to work with your losses directly and indirectly and find in them a source of richness and direction. I also offer practical strategies for navigating periods of loss.

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.

The road can become rocky and sometimes stop with no apparent direction in which to travel. When the road is too bumpy and travel is difficult, a therapist can help by serving as guide and aid and walk with you until the road is safe again to travel on your own.

I want to support you in feeling deeply connected - to yourself, to your loved ones, and to the source of your vitality - your true nature. I hope to leave each client with a deep sense of trust in themselves, and love for their unique being. Deep healing requires working on multiple levels, and I will tailor my approach to what your mind, body, and heart most need. But I am unique in that I understand the intelligence of our physiology and the ways in which it is always trying to heal. Through facilitating these physiological shifts, the mental and emotional patterns you've felt trapped by can shift in a more sustainable way.

**UNFORTUNATELY, MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL AND I AM UNABLE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME** My approach to therapy is to build a safe environment for clients where we work to develop coping strategies, interpersonal skills, and insight to move toward emotional and behavioral health. I treat a variety of common issues (e.g., depression, anxiety, school problems, ADHD, and adjustment difficulties) as well as more complex ones, such as those resulting from trauma. I find that therapy is most effective when clients have the support of significant individuals (e.g., parents) and I welcome their inclusion in the treatment process.
