I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have a wide variety of experience counseling first as a Teacher and then as a Counselor. I was a teacher for 20 years,and understand students and parents, and the difficulties/adjustments they face. I have taught in the USA, Africa, South Korea, Dominican Republic, and online; so I have lots of cross-cultural experience, and love learning about new cultures and cultural diverse issues. As a counselor the past 10 years, I have counseled clients from the USA, including different people groups such as LGBT, African American, Native American, African, Chinese and Middle Eastern clients, using translators when needed. I am a very accepting person, and especially interested in helping different people groups with adjustment/life changes issues.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is my number one counseling approach. It is an excellent and well-known therapy for Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). However, it is also excellent for anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and any bad memories. Also, it is a great relaxation method that I will teach you to do at home. I have had many clients successfully overcome anxiety, traumatic flashbacks and dreams, pulling out hair, smoking and depression by using EMDR. Also, depending on the needs of the client, I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) in helping clients to reach their treatment goals. Counseling is the process of coming along side a person and helping them to identify what changes they would like to make in their life and developing strategies together to achieve their goals. I look forward to getting to know you, and helping you to reach your treatment goals.

Kathleen is kind and practical. She provides sound Scriptural recommendations for addressing needs. I come away better than I showed up every time.
she was helpful
I like Kathleen Keon very much! It’s especially important to me that she shares in Christian faith with me. That’s a very different perspective from much of the rest of the world, and key to every issue that arises.
Kathleen was wonderful, soft spoken and engaged. I felt heard when we spoke and she responded to messages in a timely fashion. Her use of EMDR was new to me but so simple to learn. I really appreciate her compassion and understanding as well. I never felt judged either, which is probably the most a patient can ask for.
