About me

I have experience working with adults, adolescents and children who have been affected by trauma, anxiety or depression. I am passionate about meeting each client where they are at on their personal journey, and creating a safe space for each client to take steps toward the life they long to live.

Additional interests include helping children who have been impacted by trauma, as well as children who are struggling with peers or changes within their family system. I am also trained in grief and loss, and I am honored to walk alongside each client through their most trying times.

Many many years of therapy locally, and not one has ever asked questions like Kathy or has made me feel as comfortable enough to be 100% honest and open.

Absolutely amazing! Caring and loving person. Gives you tools to help with life but doesn't force them on you and helps you to move at your own pace!

I’ve been very turnt off by therapy in the past. Talking with Kathy has been a breeze. Just after Day One I had so much more excitement for healing and being engaged in therapy. I can’t wait to see what else she helps with and how she challenges me.

I've been working with Kathy for 2 weeks now and for the way I've wanted to seek help, she is getting me on the path that I've needed. I feel the benefits already and have given some referrals to others in seeking therapy just based off of the experience thus far.

I doubts about Kathy due to our different religious backgrounds. However she's been really great about digging around and getting the full picture without the meaningless small talk. Highly recommend
