As a Licensed Professional Counselor, Kathleen (Kat) believes that total health comes from healing the mind, body, and spirit. Kathleen’s mission is to help her clients live a more authentic, healthy, and fulfilling life. She achieves this by assisting clients in improving their mental health and developing valuable coping skills that are unique to them. Kathleen helps adults and teens (over 16+) who are going through psychological distress and major life adjustments. Her passion is to help young women discover their authentic and empowered selves and create a life that allows them to thrive instead of just surviving. Kathleen practices integrative, holistic, and evidence-based methods in which she pulls from insight oriented techniques as well as from her formal trainings in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Hypnotherapy.
After ten years, Kathleen has provided effective psychotherapy to clients from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of mental health severities and difficulties. Kathleen strives to create a safe, non-judgmental, trusting environment and positive therapeutic relationship. She does this so that you are willing to let her walk beside you on your journey towards self-actualization and practice the changes you develop together.
