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 encouraged me to stand up for myself and not to accept poor and abusive behavior from others, a life-long struggle I've had. It was imperative for me to realize that I was worthy of more or I would have kept accepting less. It had impacted my son, who I love more than anything in this world, so I'm glad I was given the tools I needed to work through my hurt and be a good role model for my son on how to have boundaries and stand up for yourself when it's necessary to your own well being. My son is now at a child's therapist to start tackling some of the same struggles that I had - hopefully we can tackle them before he gets much older, so that it's second nature for him as an adult.
I have frequently recommended Katie to family and friends who were struggling to find a therapist they could connect well with. She's very accepting, understanding, and I feel I could bring her anything without her judging me or deciding I wasn't worth helping - which is also something I struggle with.
At first I was really skeptical just about therapy in general in the whole re-getting to know a therapist and telling them everything, but Katie made it very easy she’s very kind and understanding constantly reassuring me that I’m not crazy. Just makes it a very comfortable and not forced environment.
Katie was the perfect match for me and my situation. I’m new to counseling and wasn’t sure what to expect, but I could not be happier with my experience. Katie has helped me process my grief, strengthen my marriage and become more of the parent I strive to be. On top of all this, it’s been so enjoyable I’d almost call it fun! Which seems strange to say since I sought her out for grief support, but I always look forward to her response. Katie is genuine, compassionate and highly skilled. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Katie is one of the only counselors I’ve met who is truly patient and very open minded! She will give you space to explain your issues and work with you wherever you’re at!
She is amazing! I love getting to talk to her. She helps me with whatever I'm going through!
Katie is an absolute life-saver. I could not give her a higher recommendation.
Katie is kind, knowledgeable, and understanding. I've had a lot of therapists throughout the years and I'm happy to have landed on her!
Katie is very knowledgeable and helpful. I like talking to her and feel she is very supportive.
I can’t express how thankful I am to have been matched with Katie. She makes me feel understood, gives me space to express my emotions in a judgement free zone, and encourages me to challenge my harmful thoughts/behaviors. I feel I have made so much progress in the time we’ve worked together.
In these beyond challenging times, it is such a relief to know she is there to help guide me through it with expertise and boundless compassion.
Therapy with Katie has truly been life changing. So much positivity and personal growth has come into my life based on the changes she has helped me make.
I love Katie, she is always so positive and really offers a new perspective for me when I'm not seeing it myself.
I have already recommended Katie to friends, my experience working with her has been so wonderful.
Katie is an insanely kind, warm and intuitive counsellor. Her compassion and support have made a huge difference to me mentally and emotionally and her practical tips and techniques have been game changing for me on a day to day basis. Everyone needs a Katie in their life!
Katie is great. She is responsive, and asks really great questions that have helped me explore things more deeply or from a different angle I hadn’t considered. She is also a mom and I appreciate that she “gets” the phase of life I am in and some of the struggles that come with parenting young children. Katie is genuinely helping me, she’s great.
Really enjoyed my time with her. I was skeptical about not having face to face interactions but it’s been one of the best counseling experiences I have had. I am so glad for this.
Katie is an amazing counsellor who lets you work at your own pace while gently guiding you to problem areas. Armed with a lot of great information, our sessions have already proven to be valuable in my day to day life and we’ve only just begun!!!
I've only had 2 sessions with Katie but find her very attentive, kind, supportive and insightful. I'm excited to work with her on this path of self-improvement. Grateful for BetterHelp and the tech-based service offered too, it's far more convenient for the modern lifestyle.
Katie has been amazing and I feel like she really listens to what I have to say! Would strongly recommend her!
