About me

I work from the belief that the human body and mind work together and constantly strive to find an inner peace and balance through self-healing. My role as a counselor is to help you create self-awareness, to facilitate the healing process, and to support you on your journey to finding your inner peace and life satisfaction. I enjoy working with adults, couples, and adolescents, addressing a wide range of challenges.
My approach to counseling is holistic, trauma-focused, strength-based, and is heavily informed by new and constantly emerging discoveries in the field of neuroscience. I utilize not only traditional modalities of therapy in my work with clients but also such mind-body techniques as mindfulness and EMDR.
I believe that the relationship and trust I build with my clients is by far more important than any technique. If there is no trust, acceptance, authenticity, and mutual respect in the relationship, there can be no therapeutic change! Therefore, in my practice I strive to create a nonjudgmental, open, and supportive environment for my clients.

I hold two Master Degrees: MA in Foreign Language Education/Philology and MA in Counseling. And I am currently enrolled in Counseling Education and Supervision PhD program to enhance my knowledge of this fascinating and always evolving field and to keep developing my skills as a therapist.

​My previous experience working as a therapist at Lifeworks and Austin Lakes Hospital gave me an opportunity to work with a broad range of psychiatric disorders and levels of acuity. My responsibilities included conducting intakes and assessments, collaborating with multi-disciplinary team to create accurate and personalized treatment plans, reaching out to the community in order to help clients find necessary transitional resources, facilitating individual and group therapy, utilizing various intervention techniques. I am currently working in a private practice setting where I provide a wide range of services applying my extensive experience and continuous training.

My first session with Kate was unbelievably eye opening. And progress throughout our remaining sessions was consistent. Very professional and comprehensive therapist!

Kate is a great listener and truly cares about what I am going through and what I have to say. She educates me on what I am experiencing and makes me feel very comfortable in my expression. I almost feel like I am talking with a friend. I would recommend her to anyone who is going through the struggles I’ve had to face. She’s been extremely helpful. Thank you, Kate.
