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.

Written on Oct 05, 2022 after therapy with Katie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Katie is the first therapist I’ve spoken with that I felt was genuinely there for me. She’s extremely personable, attentive, supportive, kind, and helpful, and speaking with her has made the process of therapy and digging through hard pasts and moments significantly less daunting.
