Hello, thanks for reaching out. My name is Kate. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have worked with clients in therapy for 16 years. The clients I have seen have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and Bipolar Disorder. I provide a warm, caring environment where people can look at past hurts/trauma, current life situations and changes/losses, relationship issues, self-esteem issues and their own questioning/wondering about life’s meaning and their own goals. I tend to use a client centered strengths based approach, helping the client obtain the healing in the areas of their life where they feel stuck. During this process, I use grief work, helping clients with coping skills, communication skills, setting needed boundaries, self-esteem work, and lowering stressors. My goal with you is to help you heal and meet your own goals and find your own sense of meaning. I look forward to working with you.

Kathryn has helped me to grow immensely and has provided me with a vast mental toolbox to use in various situations. I have grown tremendously in the year and a half that I've been working with her and am truly a better person because of it.

Kathryn is very responsive and practical. She is nurturing and offers real, solid advice. Her suggestions can be applied immediately and are very effective. When talking with her, I feel like I’m talking to a friend over a cup of tea. I highly recommend her.

From the moment I had my first session. Dr. Bondura made me feel extremely comfortable. She is very easy to talk to. She helps me to look at my issues in a different way, and how to break things down for me to handle things easier. I have learned to relax and realize I am a very strong woman. I thank you Dr. Bondura you are a healer and a friend.

Kathryn has helped me with issues that I originally needed help with and then helped me with things I didn't even think to even mention!

She is an absolutely incredible therapist. I struggled to find someone that I felt comfortable speaking to, and after multiple tries at therapy, I am so thankful to have found Kathryn. She is so helpful, and really provided me with excellent tools for managing anxiety, and working towards a happy and manageable daily life.
