About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Connecticut with over 20 years of experience working with families, young adults and with those who have been involved with the foster care system as a child or foster parent. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, mood disorders, attachment issues, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, motivational interviewing, and EMDR counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

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

I look forward to working with you!

Kathy is amazing! She really listens to you and helps create a better understanding of the situation. She is very kind and non judgemental. I found it very easy to open up to her. I highly recommend her.
