First and foremost, I would like to acknowledge and affirm all who are reading my profile. Whether or not I am privileged to work with you, I appreciate all the steps taken to reach this point. My hope for you is that finding a great therapeutic match online will be easier than finding a dating match online, and less awkward. Please take a few minutes and check out my information below to get to know a little more about me and my experience. If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer them!
My name is Katherine "Katie" Bautista and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor as well as a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist and Certified Clinical Supervisor. I received my Master's in Science from East Carolina University in 2015 in Substance Abuse and Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have been working in the human services field for 16 years initially working with adults and children who are alternatively abled and living with ID/DD. I developed a passion for working with adults with co-occurring substance use disorders and mental health needs and that has been the focus of my career since 2011. I have worked in various treatment settings from community based programs up to residential treatment programs and partial hospitalization. My passion for reaching as many people as possible has lead me to expand my practice to teletherapy.
I believe in the power of being heard as well as the power to change. My goal as a therapist is to provide clients with an authentic encounter and a collaborative relationship. I am not the measure of a client’s success and I do not believe a client’s success is because of me. I can only offer tools and be a gentle guide, kind of an emotional Ace Hardware.
I am committed to lifelong growth as a person as well as a counselor. I believe it is my responsibility and best practice to cater to the needs of the person sitting in front of me and adjust my approach to fit the client’s needs. Sessions can be anything need from empathetic listening and processing, to goal directed action sessions.

Sorry first answer I answered wrong. I strongly agree
She has helped me beyond words could explain. She really listens to me and helps me in whichever she can. She allows me to choose how each session goes and what topic is most important for me for that week.
Katherine is an exceptional therapist. She is wise beyond her years and is very calming to speak with. Would recommend her whole heartedly.
Katie has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She listens intently and gives her honest and professional advice, while also having a sense of humor I appreciate. She's patient and validating but will also tell the, sometimes, harsh truth I need to hear. Her communication is stellar and I look forward to our sessions every week.
I've only had a couple sessions but so far she has been incredible, super attentive, respectful, and validating. I look forward to more sessions but have been consistently impressed so far!
Katherine is brilliant, she got me out of a breakup black hole with her humour and attentiveness, providing insightful and tailored guidance. Had a really good time every session and overall feel so much better - even better than my ‘old’ self. So grateful!
Katie is a wonderful therapist and helps me sort out and work through my problems. She is very knowledgeable and caring and I am always happy when it's time for another appointment with her because I know it's another step towards mental peace for me. I definitely recommend Katie for a therapist!
Very knowledgeable, understanding and helpful to resolve my situations.
She's a great listener and gives great advice she also helps me understand alot about situations
Katie is absolutely wonderful. She is a great listener, very patient and I felt so comfortable with her straight away. She has great analysis too and has helped me develop tool to tackle things in just a few weeks, that have been troubling me for years. I’d definitely recommend Katie to anyone!
Katherine is the absolute greatest!! She is reassuring, kind, passionate, and a fantastic listener. She offers unique approaches to processing emotions and I feel a million times better after each and every session !
Katherine is amazing
Katherine is amazing!!! She listens so well to my worries, concerns, stress. And she is great at redirecting how I feel and why so that I can see the good side of things. She has helped me to feel like my old self again (there was some stress and anxiety after having my first baby)
She has been so amazing at helping to get through and understand this new stage of life I am entering
She is very good! Thank you!
She is very kind and non judgmental, is lighthearted and makes me feel very comfortable.
