About me

My name is Katie Potts, LMSW. I have a Masters degree in Social Work from Wayne State University, in Detroit. I got my MSW in 2004. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational interviewing in my therapy practice. I have experience working with individuals and couples struggling with negative self-talk, low self-esteem, mood instability, substance use, challenging irrational beliefs and paranoia, anxiety, history of trauma, eating disorders, addiction and codependency in family systems and individuals that identify as Adult Children of Alcoholics. I also have experience working with people struggling with issues related to grief and loss. I have worked extensively with individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and have co-facilitated a DBT group. I use DBT skills in my therapy practice and encourage you to learn these wonderful life skills if you are open and want to. I look forward to being able to help you through whatever challenge you are facing!

Katherine was an extremely understanding and accommodating therapist. She did everything she could to continue sessions with me even when our schedules no longer lined up, and was a lovely person to speak with. She is compassionate and a very good listener, understanding that sometimes people need to vent or just word vomit as part of their therapy.
