Hi! My name is Kate. My preferred pronouns are she/her/hers.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) in the state of Missouri, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Counselor Supervisor (LCPC ) in Kansas and I have been working in the counseling field since 2011. I have worked with clients in a variety of settings including: residential, outpatient, incarceration, government, through telehealth (online) and in private practice. Trauma, life transitions, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, domestic violence, and issues related to sex, sexuality, gender and alternative lifestyles and adjustment disorders are all issues I have experience counseling.
I want to meet you where you are and work together to get you to where you want to be. Therapy is a safe space in which we can communicate with one another. Through building a relationship, drawing upon modalities in which I am trained and more frequent support than a typical therapist, we can push you in the direction in which you are hoping to go. I am compassionate and a direct communicator in my counseling practice. I expect commitment to therapy and agreed upon goals from the clients I work with.
For my professional growth, I stay up to date on literature in the field and ethical codes. When applicable, I like to include statistics and research in the work I do with my clients.
I am a member of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Sex Therapists.

Kate was matched up with me within a few hours and just from reading her profile I knew she was the perfect therapist for me. We had two sessions and it felt so natural to talk to her and I always felt so much clearer afterwards.
Thank you for adjusting to my needs and being patient with me.
I am so happy with the guidance that Kate has offered me. I'm at a turning point in life and she's helpful with setting guideposts and goals while offering me new ways of seeing things. She responds quickly, and I feel like she really cares about me. I'm thankful I found her.
I was unsure what therapy would be like and was a bit nervous. Kate was kind and welcoming from the start, and communication has been great! Her input is very valuable to me, and I am getting a lot out of our sessions.
So far so good! I'm on my second week and I've already noticed a good bit of improvement. My concerns and needs are being met and I feel like I'm not stuck anymore. I've got a plan, and I can see myself being a much more wholesome and content person in the future where I didn't before.
