Whether it’s anxiety that has crippled us, a loss that has left us with overwhelming depression, or a traumatic event– we all need additional support at times. Therapy allows a non-judgemental and objective approach from life’s challenges. I operate from a client centered approach and believe you are capable to knowing your needs. I specialize in working with individuals, but as a Marriage and Family therapist, I believe change comes from relationships and personal connections.

According to the World Health Organization, suicide is second leading cause of death among those with ages ranging from 15 to 29. Many professionals tell us that having direct conversations about mental health is essential for those who are struggling with depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and other forms of mental illness. However, in my experience, these are often difficult subjects to discuss. There is often fear about "saying the wrong thing" or "not doing enough."

We all have areas of our lives where we feel stuck. We can’t seem to figure out what’s going on inside us or in our situations. Even if we see a problem, we might not know how to navigate it. Counseling is an experience that helps you safely explore these places to make sense of your experience and find more clarity for the experiences to come. Together, we sift through the combination of thoughts, emotions, experiences, and patterns that make up who we are to find deeper understanding, clarity, and peace.

Relationships build the context of our lives. We learn who we are from those around us. This exchange has the power to influence our thoughts and beliefs about ourselves. While relationships have the beautiful ability to build us up, encourage us, and support us, they also have the reverse effect. Have you ever been in a relationship that tore you down, made you question your worth, damaged your self-esteem, or left you wondering why you weren't enough? Have these unhealthy or toxic relationships hindered your ability to seek out and sustain a healthy one? This story doesn't have to be yours forever and you're not alone.

When you have anxiety, it can feel like your world is closing in on you. Your mind may never stop racing or you feel so worried and panicked that you just want to escape for a while. You have trouble sleeping and eating and you can't enjoy life. You may have reached out for help, but it seems like no one can really understand what it's like to constantly feel on edge and afraid... like your world is going to end.

Hi! I’m Kate. If you’re here, you’re already brave. It takes tremendous bravery and courage to seek professional help, to sit with and process some feelings of hurt. I believe it to be an incredible privilege to work as a counselor. To be trusted with some of the most vulnerable places in an individual’s life is an honor and I will uphold your story with integrity. I believe in the concept of wellness, in healing the whole person rather than a diagnosis or a problem. I consider counseling to be beneficial for all people, regardless of what may bring someone into my space. I would love to work together towards a journey of healing!

Let's start out by acknowledging the last year has made it more difficult to ignore the impermanence and unpredictability of life. Many of us have experienced conflict, unexpected changes, and loss. We may also feel more disconnected than before. You are not alone! This year has also reminded us of our amazing resilience! We have an amazing ability to continue to engage in life with open, compassionate hearts, finding connection, peace, joy and rest. Can you imagine going through your days feeling thankful for everything you have, feeling loved and supported in your relationships and excited about your work?

Each client comes to therapy with a unique life story. Maybe you are facing new situations and feel unsure about where to go. You may be feeling anxiety or grief that you haven't experienced before. Perhaps you're starting to recognize some patterns in your relationships that you hadn't previously noticed. No matter what brings you to the point of seeking therapy, I will build space for you to tell your story to find healing through the journey.

I help people who have lost their way get reconnected--to spouse or family, to God, or to their own dreams and goals. I work with individuals, couples, and families struggling through issues such as addiction that create distance among those they love; with individuals pursuing spiritual healing from emotional wounds; and with people grappling with cultural identity, transition, and stress, such as missionaries and children of missionaries. I have an eclectic approach for counseling individuals that integrates interpersonal, narrative, and strengths-based elements with my Christian worldview, and am buildling experience using Gottman Method Therapy for working with couples.

"There is nothing wrong with you. There is something wrong with what happened to you." The ways we are treated by others can convince us that there is something inherently wrong with who we are. Trauma and negative life experiences teach us what to believe about ourselves and the world around us, but sometimes they inform us inaccurately. Whether you've experienced abuse, difficult relationships, loss, or grief, I would love the opportunity to join you as you rediscover who you are and walk into healing and wholeness.

Life and change is really hard. Change, even positive change, can bring adjustments, anxiety, and grief that can set us adrift and stifle forward movement. You feel stuck in the anxiety and wish for change, but change can feel elusive. Maybe you feel depressed or are grieving, but not sure why you feel that way. Healing, growth, and awareness can happen in the context of healthy relationships-relationship with self, others, and God. As a clinician, I want to work with you to cultivate a healthy relationship in order to facilitate movement on your unique path toward wholeness and health.
