My name is Kathryn Ferguson, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Virginia. I work for a community agency that helps people experiencing significant trauma. What is interesting about trauma, is that everyone will face it sometime in their life and it always has an impact. Traumas can include a break-up of a marriage, stress related to job responsibilities, a loss of a love one, a life transition, or a struggle with finding purpose in life, just to name a few. Each trauma is unique to the individual; and their reaction to that trauma is very personal. Often I may be the first person that my client has trusted enough to share their story, and that sharing can be very meaningful. Our goal in therapy will be to connect with each other because trust and authenticity is essential in any therapeutic relationship. This is your journey for change, and my focus will be on joining you wherever you are on your path to healing, without judgement or criticism. I will be right beside you to assist and guide you through your time of need.
At the core, my approach is client-centered. I also find it helpful to incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and mindfulness technique. What we tell ourselves is important, and finding ways to replace negative thoughts with healthier thoughts can change how you feel about yourself and about the world.
I look forward to working with you, and cant wait to get started on your journey with you.

Kathryn is so kind, patient, and a great listener. She has really helped me through a whole year of hardship. Love her!!!
Amazing and understanding. I feel likeci have come along way. In the short time I have had her as my counselor
She is wonderful. Keeps me focused.
Ms. Ferguson was very attentive to my needs as a client. For once, I felt validated in my thoughts and feelings. I went into therapy to see if I was on the right track for my personal healing and for the most part I am. I now feel inspired to work towards my personal and professional goals in a more effective and efficient manner. Thank you Ms. Ferguson.
After my first session, I felt really hear and seen! I'm looking forward to continuing work with Kathryn
Since our first chat Kathryn has provided supportive feedback. She is respectful and provides real life situations. Kathryn is very caring and attentive. When chatting Kathryn, responds to concerns and gives advice or variables concerning the situations. I look forward to our meetings and also using the chat feature. Kathryn has been wonderful in helping my personal growth and struggles.
I really enjoy my sessions with Kathryn! I feel heard, my feelings are validated and you can tell that she really wants the best for those she works with. I really feel like my overall livelihood has improved since I have started sessions with her.
