I am an individual and family licensed clinical social worker in North Carolina with over 20 years of experience working with families in conflict and individuals that are affected by trauma. I have worked with individuals with a variety areas of concern such as trauma, relationship issues, compassion fatigue, parenting difficulties, depression, anxiety and substance abuse by an individual or the family of those battling addiction,. I specialize in assisting individuals and families in addressing abuse and neglect as a child or adult.
My counseling style is non-judgmental, actively listen, empathic, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, compassion, and empathy. I do not hold any one to stereotypes. My approach to counseling is a combination of cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and psycho-educational, interpersonal therapy, mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral, and exposure therapy. I base all treatment modalities on the individual and not a specific model.
I admire all who embark on the journey of self reflection and empowerment through counseling. I find that seeking counseling is often the hardest step because each person has his or her own ideas of what therapy will be. I am here to help you. I know that connection is the key to making the therapy work toward moving to a better way of living. Through counseling with myself, we will make the steps together to empower and enrich your life.
I look forward to working with you!

After the first phone session I had with Katie, I immediately felt comfortable. She was thoughtful, insightful and had very effective suggestions to help me. Since I started using those tools, my mental health has improved dramatically.
