Therapy is a brave step! I am here to listen, support, help, and encourage you as we explore your needs and wants. Our goal will be to overcome roadblocks in your life and help you achieve your personal goals. I want this to be a valuable and beneficial experience for you. My approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. As a Social Worker our work will be very solution focused, although we may look at all aspects of your life in order to determine the roots of what is going on in your world.
Originally from Nebraska, I have called the KC metro area home for 14 years. I love anything involving being outdoors, or family time! I have worked with people from all walks of life and believe compassion holds no bounds. There is no topic I will not broach and no truth too big.
I do this work because I enjoy helping others find their own version of happy. I will offer you a reliable, nonjudgmental space filled with compassion and understanding.
I look forward to getting to know you!

Katie is the best. She helps me sort through everything and recognizes the days when my head is too consumed to make good progress. So glad I matched with her!

Katie has been my therapist for about 6 months. I can’t express enough how much she has helped me to shift my mindset or try different approaches to situations in my life. She has even helped me in my communications with my husband and has given me avenues to explore.
