About Me

I am a mental health therapist licensed in Michigan with over 4 years of experience working with substance use and co-occurring disorders. I have assisted clients with depression and anxiety, relapse prevention, codependency and other mental health diagnoses.

I believe that each client is the expert of their own life, and it is my job to assist them in achieving their goals through empowerment and self-determination. Utilizing motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused perspectives and trauma informed practices I partner with each client to create a person-centered plan to make their desired ambitions a reality.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

She is very nice and easy to talk to. Always listen and really appears to care about the situations. I am pleasantly surprised at the ease at which I was able to interact with her. Great person, better therapist.

Kathrine is calm, cool & collected & always very professional. She’s amazing at taking things I’ve said at beginnings of meetings & addressing them again toward the end of meetings to give me great advice & exercises.

She’s such a soothing presence, even her voice gives me this weird sense of security. On top of that she’s just very genuine and great. She gives me a lot of tools to use and challenges me a lot and it has all been very eye opening and helpful.

Written by G.A. on Feb 03, 2022 after therapy with Katherine for 2 weeks on issues concerning self esteem

Katherine has been so helpful. She's made me feel more confident in my decision-making ability, and I've already told 3 friends to sign up for BetterHelp and ask for her!

Katherine makes sure there is progress on what we identified as areas I need to work on while never being too pushy. I feel like she is very competent and she is a very good listener. She supplies good material to enable working on your goals outside of the sessions. Would fully recommend working with her.

Katherine is amazing

Written by C.A. on Oct 12, 2021 after therapy with Katherine for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, bipolar disorder, and compassion fatigue

Katherine is very empathic and queues in to your feelings. It was very helpful to me when she told me I settled for less. It was straight forward. Call out the behavior and help understand why it is occurring and work toward healing and moving on.

She’s a wonderful listener and supporter and counselor. She is comforting and understanding, and really wants to work with me on things. I feel held.

She listens to hear and understand what I’m saying not just to respond. i’ve been extremely comfortable sharing and opening up trusting that when she speaks it will be words of wisdom is not just something that sounds good. Definitely appreciate our time together.
