About me

Hello my name is Kate,
My therapeutic style is warm, focused, interactive and compassionate. My style includes the ability to be structural and direct. Having worked in this field for 20 years I have gained my therapy experience from a range of concerns and populations.I completed my master's degree in Counseling Psychology at Santa Clara University in California. Now I am a licensed mental health counselor in Florida.
I will treat you as a unique individual and customize the therapy to meet your situation. I have enjoyed working in many different states from the East to West coast. This cultural experience makes my practice, one that is sensitive to many from a variety of cultural backgrounds and experiences.
As your therapist my approach is multidimensional drawing from Cognitive Behavioral, Positive Psychology, and Solution Focused.It would be my privilege to work with you in a safe and nonjudgmental space as you process, through the challenges life is presenting you right now.
Let's explore your goals together and I will assist you in finding the joy you deserve in life. You are welcome to message me anytime through Better Help.

Kathleen has been wonderful to talk to. She asks thought provoking questions and gives great suggestions on overcoming obstacles. She makes you feel at ease and like she’s a friend that you’ve had for many years. Your session seems to fly by when you speak with her.

She listens to what I am saying and can easily translate my random thoughts and ramblings in to a simple statement of what I’m looking for. And helps with tools that are helpful

Kathleen is supportive, understanding and brings a lot of experience to her conversations. I feel comfortable being completely honest with her, and our conversations flow very naturally. She’s great at listening, and asks the right questions.

I’ve been working with Kathleen for about 4 weeks now and thanks to her I’ve made progress on the issues I’m trying to work through. She’s been very kind, open, patient, nonjudgmental and knows how to hold space in a way that makes you feel safe and cared for. Also, her insights have empowered me to take the necessary steps to tackle my challenges head on. I highly recommend her as a therapist.

Kathleen has been a great guide and support. She helped me to feel at ease as I took my "first time in therapy" steps. I look forward to every session. Even when I am unsure of what I might say or if I have the energy to meet, I am always glad that I take the time to speak with Kathleen. Thank you.

Written on Jun 01, 2022 after therapy with Kathleen for 1 year and 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Incredibly relatable, helps me feel like I can solve many of my stressors by leaning into my intuition and being confident in my self and abilities.

Written on Apr 14, 2022 after therapy with Kathleen for 2 months on issues concerning self esteem, career difficulties, and coaching

Kathleen is fantastic! She has provided me with exactly what I needed. There was 2-3 sessions where we really dug into what the crux of my issues were, and from there have consistently worked to improve my self esteem, confidence, and minimize my fears and concerns. While I still struggle a bit, I have improved significantly over the few months that I have been seeing Kathleen! I highly recommend her, especially for others suffering from imposter syndrome, struggling with professional confidence, or personal confidence.

I can’t thank Kathleen enough for being so understanding and compassionate with me. Kathleen gave me a space where I could express myself and be heard, she also gave great advice and tips to help improve myself.

Kathleen and I have been working together for a few months. I had been skeptical of therapy but decided to give it a try because I felt I really needed the guidance and help from a professional. Kathleen has been extremely supportive through the difficult time I have been going through. I feel very comfortable discussing my issues with her and she always has insight that helps propel me forward on my journey in life. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with relationships, both romantic and familial. I am thankful I was paired with Kathleen.
