About Me

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read about me. My name is Kathryn and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been working in the behavioral health field for over ten years; and doing direct counseling for the past four years. I received my Master of Science Degree in Professional Counseling from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix Arizona. After graduation I worked as an in-home counselor with families struggling with interpersonal relationships, communication difficulties, substance abuse, and trauma. I have experience working with individuals dealing with addictions and recovery, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder.

I am a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, who uses a person-centered approach with an emphasis on being mindful and solution focused. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based therapy that is used to treat several psychological disorders such as phobias, addiction, depression and anxiety. My goal as your therapist will be to help you feel safe, to build rapport, and trust in me as your therapist and in the therapeutic process. I will work collaboratively with you to help you achieve your personal life goals and help to improve your responses to difficult life situations. I utilize empathy, motivational interviewing, and active listening techniques to support in having a truly wonderful counseling experience.

I am truly looking forward to working and growing together with you.

Kathryn makes me feel really comfortable talking with her. You can tell she's invested in what I'm telling her, and has an honest approach to each scenario.

I'm so glad that I was matched with Kathryn. She is so personable and understanding with great insight. She makes you feel comfortable discussing issues and lets you know that you are not alone. Her client focused approach guides me towards making my own decisions and coming up with my own solutions . She is really helping me through this rough patch in my life.

Kathryn is great, i wish i could have one phone call per week since we don't use the chat very often. i do think she's super helpful, it's just that when i go to schedule a time, it's usually every other week she has openings.

Kathryn is very helpful and understanding. Gives it to you straight but in a gentle way while also providing a real world perspective on how to do things different.

Written by J.O. on Jul 20, 2020 after counseling with Kathryn for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Kathryn first helped me determine what I needed from our meetings. Then was able to work me through why I didn’t have those things already. She provided a comfortable environment for me to explore what needed to change. Then, she helped me start implementing tools to strengthen those weaknesses. I felt so stuck by what I thought was poor character. Now I feel excited for the future and so much better prepared to face challenges.
