Katherine Williams, LCSW
***I am currently accepting short-term, summer clients, meaning that I would be able to meet with you for 10 sessions or less during the summer. I work as a school counselor in addition to providing therapy via Better Help, and I am taking on extra clients for the summer break only.
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 12 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 so kind and so helpful. She is able to relate and give me great tips to reach my goals. She is always empathetic, yet is adamant about moving me forward and keeping my eye on my goal. Can't say enough good things about her.
