Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Hi! I’m Kate.
I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and expert therapist who specializes in a wide range of presenting concerns and challenges.
With over 30 years’ experience in human service work and being a committed life learner, I am always honing my skills in my personal and professional life and bring that approach to my work in therapy. It is my desire to team with you to identify treatment approaches customized to your specific needs and work on these together to help you make changes that can move you forward to lead your best life!
I help clients explore what’s working & not working in their lives and coach them on developing & implementing lasting positive changes. I encourage life learning and value and enhance clients’ self-expertise. Let me help you identify approaches customized to your specific needs to work on together to make changes that can lead to your best life.
I look forward to helping you break free of patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting that are resulting in negative consequences in your life. Let me help you identify and change these to move forward to get the different, healthier, more satisfying life and relationship experiences you seek.
I’ve been there.
You might often struggle to manage difficult people in your life and the negative consequences they bring wondering how you keep allowing them in when it is your choice. Perhaps you feel like you can’t control your overeating or binge eating behavior or you’re maintaining recovery from other addiction issues.
You might want better management of anxiety or social discomfort, depression, PTSD, and other emotional, mental health, and interpersonal struggles. You grew up in a dysfunctional family and want to overcome the negative impact this continues to have on your life. You may be managing a persistent mental health condition including those with psychotic symptoms and realize that medication alone is not giving you the consistent symptom management you desire.
You may feel stuck with the negative patterns and consequences that accompany these common human experiences, but you’re not.
You’re ready to break free of the avoidable suffering from the much underdiagnosed and undertreated issue of low self-esteem which complicates management of other issues. You want to change the thinking, emotional, and behavioral patterns maintaining or worsening these issues and find relief.
In my practice approach, I honor my clients as the experts of themselves and team with them to explore what’s working and not working in their daily lives. I coach them on developing and implementing a plan of action to make lasting positive change.
