I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of MA with experience in working with a wide range of populations, from children to incarcerated adult men to young parents learning to work with their new role to at-risk teenagers. I completed my masters' degree in Mental Health Counseling in 2013 and since then have helped people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, major life changes, parenting problems, ADHD, relationship difficulties, and specialize in working with those who have been affected by trauma. My clinical approach primarily employs tenets of CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy, but is tailored to meet the needs of each individual client.
As a clinician, I am skilled at meeting clients where they are at and tailoring the therapeutic goals to the needs of each individual client. I believe that the most effective therapy is guided by the primary needs of the client and utilizes the client's natural strengths and interests in order to make progress. My therapeutic approach is holistic: I believe in the importance of considering the mind-body connection and frequently explore that with clients who are willing. My approach is friendly, warm, respectful, and nonjudgmental; my sense of humor helps clients to feel at ease. I strive to make each client feel as though they are in a safe place throughout the course of our conversation.
Seeking help takes courage; asking for help is not an easy thing for everyone. I am here to provide support, insight, and to empower you meet your goals and achieve your greatest potential. There is no challenge too small and no goal too big!
I look forward to working with you!

She’s great! So sweet and nice.
Kathleen is wonderful! She listens, asks engaging questions, and works with me to work through my thoughts. She's never judgemental and helps me create concrete plans every week.
Empathetic and understanding. A great listener and advisor.
I have had a few different therapists before working with Kathleen, and I feel the most connected and assured that I’m getting the best help for me right now. She listens attentively and responds in a way that’s understanding but helpful and solution-based. I have received more help in the past three weeks that I have in a year with my last therapist. Kathleen is very sweet and caring and I think her work experience will help many people.
Although our interaction was brief, Kathleen really was a counselor I could finally rely on. She was sensitive, caring but very direct, and realistic. If I ever use this app again I will request to work with her.
Kathleen provides multiple strategies to help her clients.
