About me

I am a licensed therapist in Minnesota with an LPCC. I've practiced in ND and MN for over 10 years. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, neglect, families with child welfare involvement, trauma and PTSD, personality disorders, psychosis, bipolar disorder, abuse/neglect, attachment related issues, adoption and foster care, LGBTQ+ challenges, as well as many other areas of concern. I specialize in trauma including utilizing EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for those with trauma experienced in childhood and adulthood.

My therapy style is down to earth and genuine. I enjoy having a sense of humor about life and often incorporate this into my therapy sessions. I believe in holding space for the deep pain people face in their lives and helping them reprocess that pain. My approach incorporates many modalities and I will utilize all of the therapy models that best suites each individual based on their input and specific needs.

I am excited to support you in your healing journey and see where it leads you!

I look forward to working with you!

Katie is amazing. She helps me work through things that I have been struggling with and removes all my anxieties and brings me back down to reality.

Katie is absolutely amazing in every way! We connected immediately, and in a way that I felt like I was talking with an old friend. It felt very real and personable, exactly what I was looking for and needed. I will continue coming back to Katie for as long as I can, and I’ve already recommended them to multiple people that I know would benefit for this education as wisdom. The love of support that I feel with my growth, healing, and decisions is extremely validating from Katie. She’s the best!

I would recommend Katie to anyone needing Betterhelp. She was very thoughtful and supportive. I felt listened to and never judged, and my sessions with her really helped me to meet the goals I felt I needed to meet in therapy.

I feel as though I struck gold. Finding a new therapist that clicks has always been daunting, but I matched with Katie and it was instant knowing. In just one month she helped me climb out of suicide ideation and get back on track. She sent materials and resources for me to look into outside of sessions and that was incredibly helpful to be able to continue my own learning and healing journey. She provided a safe, gentle space to allow all the things that needed room to breathe so I could release them and return to my whole, loving self. Thank you Katie!!!!

After just the first session, I knew I was in good hands. Katie is able to blend professionalism with relatability and down-to-earth communication in a way that makes you feel supported by a licensed expert while also making you feel like you're talking or venting to a trusted friend. 10/10 would recommend.
