Blind since age 8, I have honed my listening skills, allowing me to focus in session on deeper issues while quickly synthesizing significant information.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a 30-year history of working with individuals, couples, and groups. I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Washington in 1991, and became licensed in Washington State in 1993. I served as Staff Psychologist at the VA Hospital in Seattle for 25 years, working with male and female veterans with histories of combat PTSD and military sexual trauma. Now, in my private practice, I emphasize Cognitive Behavioral and Evidence-Based treatments for PTSD, depression, anxiety, trauma, sleep disturbance, eating disorders, and interpersonal relationship skills.

Building a safe and inclusive therapy space means finding my blind spots, unlearning and challenging my oppressor parts, and committing to embodiment of social justice in all aspects of life.
The “nothing is ever good enough” feeling won’t go away by doing more. It's something I notice all the time working with millennials. We tend to approach our challenges by doing more rather than slowing down and noticing what’s going on inside of ourselves. Whether you're single or partnered, starting a family or wondering about life without kids, frustrated about where you are now, or just hung up on what the heck comes next, I want you to know – I hear you. You can think of therapy with me as a safe environment where you can start showing up more fully for yourself.

All around us the world has been shifting. Maybe at one point it all made sense: your feelings, sensations, and reactions (even the dark and heightened ones) felt known and even comforting. But now you are looking for a new way to be and a different understanding – a path forward and a way to endure your struggle. If you are someone who believes that each of us know our own wounds, that we possess a strong inner wisdom, and that we have the ability to access the latent potential to grow and change – or, you want to believe – you will find a good fit with me and my therapeutic offerings.

Trauma leaves us feeling broken, ashamed, and disconnected from our true selves. You may be fed up with feeling triggered in everyday situations, isolated from friends who can’t understand, or guilt over what happened to you. It may even feel like this will last forever. Either way, you’re ready for some relief and actual change. You’re ready to enjoy deep relationships without your past getting in the way. You’re ready to rediscover your true self. Most of all, you’re ready to love yourself again & to face your future with a sense of hope.

Reconnecting to ourselves, others, and our community is imperative to growth, healing, and movement through life. Taking the time to find and explore creativity, our expression process, and the arts when we are living with mental illness, changes, and just living in general is a transformative process. This process alleviates debilitating symptoms so that we can discover what truly and uniquely works for us in therapy. I have experience working with people of all ages, the majority being youth ages 10-22 experiencing acute mental health crises, and I am open to working with folks of all ages and with any mental health support needs.

Informed by liberating-direct-action with workers, survivors of mental health incarceration, and skilled professionals, I value lived-experience just as much as highfalutin philosophy. I believe in the universal human drive to transform + heal through caring community connections, self-awareness, access to dreams by way of meeting basic needs, and the responsibility to recover personal and collective strengths. Healing of the self is healing of communities, and ultimately our interrelated societies. In place of paternalism, I offer avenues for developing your self-trust.

If you are seeking to work through anxiety, depression, an identity issue, a life transition, a traumatic experience, or a loss, I may be the therapist to help you. As a Certified Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapist, I can also help couples deeply reconnect on the level of needs and feelings--as opposed to having that same unproductive argument over and over again. With individuals, I often work in the here-and-now. Additionally, I pay attention to your history in order to understand (together with you) how your past experiences might be affecting your capacity to live well in the present and imagine a future.

Everyone is welcome in my office; I am honored to work with and witness folks from all walks of life. I specialize in working with queer and trans folks, especially those with neurodiversity, and people exploring and practicing non-monogamy. I'm passionate about identity development; discovering and vocalizing boundaries; and understanding how values change as we unpack internalized oppression and look at your life experiences. Therapy helps us gather an understanding of how the world views us, and reorient to stand up for our full selves.

My practice is focused on helping individuals understand and heal from the profound wounds caused by emotional or physical violence/neglect in close personal relationships. This includes adults who've experienced childhood abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment, as well as sexual assault, violence, and betrayal trauma. By conceptualizing complex forms of trauma from a feminist perspective, I investigate issues of gender, power, and culture, and identify them as the center of oppression, distress, and dysfunction in a person's life. Relational trauma often creates isolation, and I believe it is only in relationship that we heal.

I enjoy working with LGBTQ+ and BIPOC people and allies for ADHD, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, confidence, self-exploration, toxic relationships, and talking about careers and dating. I am an ADHDer and domestic violence survivor. I also love running therapy groups! Groups give people the opportunity to meet new people and build connections. Studies show group counseling is equally as effective as individual counseling! Follow me on TikTok, IG, & YouTube at katemageau.therapist

I work well with clients who are struggling to thrive in everyday life, who need a path forward and feel stuck. If you've been experiencing depression, anxiety, increased anger, irritability, frustrations with relationships, a depleted sense of self, or a whole host of problems, then we might be a great fit. Some folks I work with don't want to live anymore or experience strong urges to harm themselves. When working with folks who experience any of these symptoms, my goal is to help you identify and work toward living a life you find joyful and meaningful.
