About Me

Hello, My name is Katherine

First, I want to commend you for seeking help. For many people, this is the hardest step in therapy. When we are in pain, the natural inclination is to act quickly or retreat. It takes strength to look inside and seek more permanent, satisfying solutions. We are going to use that strength and many others you may not even know you have to move toward the place you want to be. We will also probably add new tools to your skill base.

I have 20+ years experience as a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) helping teens and adults from many different walks of life address a broad spectrum of mental health concerns. These include depression, anxiety, trauma/abuse, high risk behaviors, obsessions/compulsions, stress/anger management, relationship problems, and others. I am also a licensed registered nurse (RN) which gives me increased understanding of the many ways in which emotional and physical wellbeing intersect and small adjustments of one can dramatically affect the other.

My style is naturally warm but I can adapt if you are more comfortable with a matter-of-fact approach. My methods are eclectic, blending interventions from a variety of research based modalities to best meet each individual situation. I truly look forward to meeting you and having this opportunity to work together to improve your life.

Katherine is a thoughtful and warm person, and has taken a practical, kind, and supportive approach to her counseling work with me. I feel that my concerns have been listened to and understood, and I appreciate Katherine's flexibility and understanding in setting and shifting goals as appropriate.

Written by Z.A. on Aug 21, 2017 after counseling with Katherine for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Katherine is very understanding and patient. She knows what to ask in order to unravel underlying motivations such as fear and anxieties, so that I understand myself better. The many years of experience she has counseling has also helped in providing me with anecdotal evidence similar to what I am going through, which helps me in knowing that I am not alone in going through my trauma. Thankful to have support in the form of counseling with Katherine.

Katherine is a very kind and fair. She really tries to understand the clients and their situation, and give objective help and advice.

Written by C.H. on May 29, 2017 after counseling with Katherine for 1 month on issues concerning trauma and abuse

Katherine seems like a very calm, caring person who has gently helped me "feel" that someone is there that I can always reach out to in a moment of panic! No one can ever really understand someone else, but all we need a listening friend to help with The Journey. Good luck to all of you out there!

Katherine is very helpful and easy to talk to. Being my first interaction with a therapist, it is surprisingly easy to open up and get the help that I need. I only have good things to say about the time I've spent talking to her.

It has been nice to talk to Katherine. She has a warm, caring style. Our sessions were a bit limited by lack of video or phone, but the sessions are enjoyable. Thank you.

Written by R.O. on May 16, 2017 after counseling with Katherine for 3 weeks on issues concerning intimacy-related

Katherine has been a kind and understanding soul throughout my time with her though we have only just gotten started. The level of comfort I feel with her makes the difficult conversations much easier to have. If you want to feel like you are talking with a friend, then I would highly recommend Katherine for your counselling needs.

Written by A.N. on Apr 30, 2017 after counseling with Katherine for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship, and anger

Katherine has been such a great help in helping me understand things and why I feel the things I do. Her exercise to get me to go back to my childhood as amazing and I have seen so much and feel I now understand why I feel have my issues. I've seen things I had forgotten and felt them as if they just happened.

I feel good after each time I do the daily exercise and feel good also after we chat on line. I feel I've achieved something and am going in the right direction.

I don't feel mentally or physically drained as I had before when I went to get help. Now I feel good and happy before it hurt so much that all it didn't was make me relive the abuse and hurt and not want to do any session again.
