I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor practicing in the state of Minnesota. It is a privilege to assist people in understanding themselves and what is causing their distress. I facilitate, in partnership with you, an awareness of emotions, behaviors and relationships in order for positive and transformative change to happen in your life. Counseling with me provides you with the tools to be your best you! It allows you to appreciate and enjoy life in full. It assists you in becoming the person you want to be by learning to navigate life's challenges and to find balance in your environment. My specialties are post-treatment recovery, anxiety, depression, grief and loss and major life transitions such as pre-marriage readiness, empty nest challenges, post-divorce issues, retirement adjustment and end of life issues due to a terminal diagnosis in you or a loved one.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support you. I look forward to working with you!

Katie gives expert advice and encouragement for all kinds of trials in life. When I write to Katie, I know that she will respond with acceptance and tangible help.
Katie is an excellent listener. She gives me options and a “to do” list to keep me from back sliding. Her advise is sound, and is interested in why I might push back, without a lecture. I really feel her understanding and empathy.
Katie gave me the tools I need to begin to address my personal issue, and after only a few sessions she helped me see it is all stemming from one huge issue that I have been ignoring. Not to say that everything will be perfect after I address the big one, but I look forward to tackling my other problems with her as I work through it.
Highly empathetic without coddling me was exactly what I needed to do something about it.
Katie has been extremely helpful to me over the past month. I felt we connected swiftly and easily. She is very respectful, kind and offers good insights and homework. I feel heard and acknowledged and grateful. Making the connection with Betterhelp and Katie has felt like a very good next step for me to feel better and be better.
In just a couple of sessions, Katie has already provided me with compassionate feedback and given me some new tools to deal with the deep grief I am currently experiencing.
In addition, I'm finding that getting counseling via phone rather than in person seems so much more efficient and effective for me. I would highly recommend trying this to anyone who's on the fence.
Katie is excellent. She clearly has the compassion, expertise, and wisdom to listen and help you move toward your goals in therapy. She has been timely with responses, very thorough, courteous, and encouraging. She is a cut above other counselors I've tried to work with in the past, and I'd recommend working with her to other people who are willing to make changes but need some support to make it happen.
