Katie McClearn

(LPC)

About Me

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.

Great listener and checks up on me once in a while as well. I like this service as it helps to help clear even the most minute things from my head, and all remotely. Thank you, Katie!

Katie is awesome! She’s nonjudgmental and very personable. Talking with her doesn’t feel like an overly dramatic therapy session, it feels comfortable. My sessions were very validating and helped me a lot.

Katie McClearn, although I only used her service for a short period of time, that time was well worth it, and her expertise helped me greatly in learning to deal with life stressors. She gave me an alternative perspective on my situation, and that in itself was so helpful. There is a great chance that I will be returning to BetterHelp, but only if I can go back to seeing Katie again. Thanks Katie!

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!
