I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, licensed in the states of Kansas and Wisconsin. I have been a practicing licensed therapist for 12 years. I have worked with a wide range of populations from children and adolescents to adults and geriatrics. I have worked with clients who have struggled with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, stress management, career challenges, and significant life changes. I am also a certified personal trainer and I have worked with clients struggling with weight loss and body image issues. I have experience working in several different settings including group homes, an inpatient psychiatric hospital, and an intensive outpatient hospital setting. What this means, is that I have worked with people at various points in their mental health journey.
My counseling style is warm, compassionate, and supportive, but I will also challenge you to grow. I will meet you where are you at, actively listen to you, and help you set and achieve the goals that are important to you. I utilize several approaches in my practice, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, mindfulness, journaling, and positive psychology.
It can be hard to reach out and seek help and I commend you for taking the first steps to make positive changes in your life. If you are ready to commit, I am ready to support and empower you to be successful.
I look forward to working with you!

Kathryn is helping me to continue improving my mental and physical health every day. At first, I was hesitant, I didn't think I was getting enough out of Betterhelp because I wasn't using it often enough. But it turns out that knowing I have always access to my counselor, and knowing she will check on me over the long run has made it incredibly worth it. I feel much more secure than I ever did before.
She's also a really great listener, and her style has matched well with mine. I am so thankful this holiday season to have her on my side.

I am loving working with Kathryn. She gives me wonderful insights and is a great listener. She responds to me and checks in regularly. I love that I can text her anytime instead of waiting till the next appointment when I am likely to forget or leave out important details.
