Kate (she/her/hers) believes that mental health is as important as physical health and that by making it a priority, in counseling and in everyday life, increased wellness is achieved. Kate provides warm, non-judgmental, and compassionate support and encouragement for adults facing:
- Couples counseling (whether you feel stuck in your relationship or want to learn how to build deep connection)
- Challenges with mental health and mindset (everything from feeling overwhelmed to depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress)
- Life transitions (becoming a parent; the death of a loved one; the ending of a relationship)
- Counseling for caregivers (parents caring for a child; adults caring for an aging adult)
Life doesn’t always go the way we plan or expect and sometimes we feel stuck, discouraged, or find ourselves dealing with significant emotional pain. For every client, Kate’s goal is to create a safe space for healing and growth by establishing a solid relationship with each client built on trust and acceptance.
