Hello! I’m looking forward to helping you work through any life stressors by equipping you with the necessary tools to live your best life. I have a masters degree in art therapy and I am currently a registered art therapist and a licensed mental health counselor in Florida. I have 11 years of experience working with clients affected by trauma and abuse, ADHD, anxiety, autism, self-esteem issues, abandonment, and interpersonal relationships. My motto is that even a broken crayon can still work- in other words even if we are broken from life situations we still have the potential for greatness and success. I love being able to apply my art as therapy skills to provide my clients for an additional outlet on top of traditional talk therapy to express themselves in less vulnerable ways. Finally, I believe therapy should include some grit and grace- there are going to be days when you’ll have to grit your teeth as you work through hard issues but if you give yourself grace during that time and allow yourself to be forgiving towards yourself and others, you will flourish.

After only 1 session with Katie I felt listened to for the first time in a while. I felt very comfortable chatting with her and addressing my concerns without feeling judged or rushed. I really appreciate her kind approach
