Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read about me. My name is Kathryn and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been working in the behavioral health field for over ten years; and doing direct counseling for the past four years. I received my Master of Science Degree in Professional Counseling from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix Arizona.

I have experience working with individuals dealing with addictions and recovery, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder.
I am a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, who uses a person-centered approach with an emphasis on being mindful and solution focused. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based therapy that is used to treat several psychological disorders such as phobias, addiction, depression and anxiety. My goal as your therapist will be to help you feel safe, to build rapport, and trust in me as your therapist and in the therapeutic process. I will work collaboratively with you to help you achieve your personal life goals and help to improve your responses to difficult life situations. I utilize empathy, motivational interviewing, and active listening techniques to support in having a truly wonderful counseling experience.
I am truly looking forward to working and growing together with you.

After one session, I feel trust developing with Kathryn. It was easy to speak with her and she held space for me to share my thoughts and process my emotions. I am so thankful for the time I have taken for my health.

Kathryn is very approachable, friendly and professional at the same time. I feel very comfortable talking to her like I’m talking to a friend, at the same time a professional who is helping me get a perspective that will help me be a better version of myself
