When someone is experiencing life stressors and hard times it can become difficult to have hope for happier days. It can be a hard journey to take in being able to learn how to cope with these stressors and find hope that one needs in order to live a healthier, happy life. It is my goal as your counselor to provide a safe, supportive, and nonjudgmental environment for someone to take this journey. I look forward to empowering people to grow as individuals and reach their goals that will help them to live a more meaningful life.

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!

Helping others has always been a part of my heart. I enjoy working with all ages but particularly enjoy working with the adolescent population. Adolescents is such a pivotal and impressionable stage of life where they are learning and exploring their own beliefs and ideas. No matter what I believe in being transparent, kind, honest, and genuine within the therapeutic relationship. I strive to make sure my clients have answers about the therapeutic process and feel comfortable.

You are worthy and you are enough. Those seven words can feel like an unreachable mindset, I know. Trauma, abuse, neglect, grief, and the weight of caring for others more than yourself can make that phrase feel hollow. Anxiety, depression, flashbacks, nightmares, and isolation are truly exhausting. If you are reading this, I want you to know you are not alone and you’ve already taken the only step you have to on your own: you’ve done the hard work of reaching out.

I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "You have to love yourself before you can love someone else?" - Well that's probably true and a great idea, but how do we actually do that?!? I work with clients to build skills around being more compassionate to themselves. As an act of self-love, we learn to set boundaries to protect ourselves, while doing so with kindness for others. Part of this process often involves healing wounds and trauma of our past, learning to listen to our bodies, and use our bodies as a resource for soothing and grounding awareness.

No one makes the decision to look for a counselor because they feel like their life is moving in the direction they want it to. Whether we get off track because of trauma, or effective but unhelpful thought or behavior patterns, or untrue messages were told as children, the counseling relationship offers us the chance to try and find the road again. As a counselor, it is a privilege and a responsibility to get to help people try and find their way forward (even if the way does not look like what either of us expects).

What type of Chattanooga mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Chattanooga?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
