Hello! First of all, congratulations for taking the courageous step of considering counseling. For many of us, there are barriers that make us hesitant to seek treatment. You've had the courage to make it this far, and together, we can empower you to achieve your therapy goals and feel better in your life.
I've been a counselor for 14 years, and have worked in a variety of settings, including mental health care, schools, nursing homes, a military installation, and non-profit organizations. I am currently licensed in both Indiana and Kentucky. I have experience with every age group from infants to a 104 year-old, and have helped people address a variety of struggles, from severe and chronic mental illness to anxiety, depression, PTSD and trauma issues, to simply trying to adjust to new life circumstances or cope with the deployment of a loved one. With children, I have helped families work through issues of depression, anxiety, ADHD, Autism, IDD, ODD, PTSD, changes in behavior, and much more.
My style of therapy is warm and interpersonal. I want to come alongside you on your journey to help empower you and help you find the tools you need to cope with the struggles you are facing. I am strengths-based and positive, and plan treatment and goals around what you want to achieve through therapy. I am respectful and non-judgemental, period. I look forward to getting to know the beautiful person God created in you, and empowering you to achieve your mental health goals!

Kate is wonderful. I always “chickened out” on doing therapy before, but Kate has made me feel comfortable from day one. She is very caring and helps me work through things in a different light than I’d ever considered or knew about before. I’d highly recommend her.

I have loved working with Kate! She listens very well, is very personable, and has incorporated faith into sessions beautifully! I’m so thankful that she has quickly (in 2 sessions) helped me to identify my negative thought patterns and given me resources, ideas, and support at combatting them. Would 10/10 recommend her!

I have only been working with Kate for a short time, but I am already so thankful for her! She is encouraging, warm, and has given me great tools to help work through my anxiety. She is easy to talk to and share things with, and I love how she Biblically integrates our sessions!
