Hello! Welcome to my page.
My name is Katie Weidenkeller and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado and have been working in the mental health field for 6 years. I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is the foundation for good work to begin. My approach with clients is warm and supportive along with providing validation for their emotions and experiences. I believe that the client knows themselves the best and I meet my clients where they're at. I do not believe in identifying the client as their diagnosis.
My approach is very client centered utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and Solution-Focused modalities. However, I will work with you in collaboration and identifying goals tailoring your treatment as needed to best support your needs.
I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. I enjoy working with individuals, families, and in group settings. My background is experienced with eating disorder, emotional difficulties, substance use, homelessness, and overall general life stressors or challenges.
I realize that it is not easy to reach out and ask for support. I want to meet you with grace and compassion in order to help you take the first steps in making a change in your life.
I look forward to meeting you and walking along side you in your journey!
