Katie is a great therapist. She has helped me to gain a better understanding of my situation. She guides you to help you figure out what you think is the best method of handling an issue. She never tells you what path to take or judges your methods. I'm so thankful to have her as my therapist.

This is the first time that I’ve found a therapist with better help that I feel works for me. I greatly appreciate her personality and listening skills. She makes the hard easier.

I’ve only had one video session with Katie so far, but from that and our messaging I feel truly comfortable and enjoy her feedback. I’m confident in our partnership to work through my concerns.

She's the best, enough said! In the short amount I've been with her, I have become stronger and more confident than ever before. I now know how to deal with my problems with a much better out look. I couldn't ask for a better therapist!
