About me


I am Katie Sankare, LCSW. I am licensed in the state of Maine and I have 10 years of professional work experience, mostly working with children, adolescents, and families. I have experience helping clients with parenting issues and concerns, navigating family dynamics, coping with life changes, managing anxiety & stress, building social skills, and concentration, memory and focus (ADHD). I also have extensive experience working with people on the Autism spectrum.

My therapy style is warm, friendly, and interactive. I believe that every person is unique and every person is the expert of their own life. I will tailor our sessions to meet your specific needs and goals. My therapeutic approach combines humanistic, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioral therapy.

I believe in treating everyone with respect, warmth, and compassion. It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help, and I strongly believe that you already possess many strengths and skills that will assist you in overcoming challenges in your life. I look forward to working together with you in a safe, supportive environment to empower you to create change, reach your goals, focus on your well-being, and have a more fulfilling and happy life.

I look forward to connecting with you soon!

Katie is as kind as she is intelligent and empathetic. I will miss her.
