I am a licensed counselor from the state of Arizona. I have experience working in many different settings including city social services, in education, an outpatient clinic and within a homeless shelter. I have spent much of my career working with individuals that have ADHD, anxiety, depression, substance abuse and other disorders. I specialize in working with individuals with a past history of trauma or abuse of any kind. I also have experience working with families that have children that display maladaptive behaviors and am specialized to work with families or clients with autism.
My counseling style is centered around helping you complete the goals you set for yourself in a supportive and warm environment that is never judgmental. I am trained to use different therapy options including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) trauma therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing and Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). I use Cognitive Behavioral therapy, person centered therapy, and brief solution focused counseling theories as well.
Therapy is hard work and I will be there with you to push through the difficult times and celebrate with you as you make progress towards your goal. I look forward to working with you and supporting you in finding a better future.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Relationship, Grief, Intimacy-related, Sleeping, Anger, Self esteem, Depression

Katie is the best counselor I've ever encountered. She is an excellent, empathetic listener and gives very practical insights and advice. I have appreciated our talks immensely and truly feel like it has been a big help in my life.
She is very flexible with someone who has an unpredictable schedule. Her method of counseling is very effective for me. She has help me a great deal with the loss of my loved ones. I have gone to other councilors in the past with the same issues, but my results were negligible. My experience with Kate has been the complete opposite.
Katie has been working with me over the past few weeks to reset many years of defective, unhelpful, crippling thinking. She listens to me, makes me feel heard, and does a great job of giving feedback in a way that is encouraging and effective. She's awesome! A real God-send in a time of need for me!
Katie is awesome. She's punctual, flexible, kind and incredibly good at listening. With her help, I've been able to work through several issues. Now I've got the tools I need to succeed on my own. I highly recommend Katie!
Katie is awesome. I feel much more solid since she decided to help me. Thank you Katie
Katie is wonderful at getting back to me in a timely manner, and addresses my needs appropriately. I have recommended her to a friend of mine who is seeking counseling and I personally look forward to continuing sessions with her.
I love her! She’s so helpful and listens to everything. Best ever! :)
Great counselor! Very respectful and caring. She responds in a timely manor and is very professional.
