Marriage and Family Therapist
Hi, I am Kathy. I work with a variety of clients who want to enrich their lives, reduce personal or relational distress and suffering, and increase their vitality in life. I treat anxiety, depression, life transitions, relational/developmental trauma, PTSD, and surgical trauma, including preparing for surgery. I work with adults (ages 18+) in individual and couples’ sessions. I am an LGBTQ+ and poly-friendly therapist.
I look beyond the individual to include the interplay of larger systems in my clients’ lives. I am trained as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, meaning I incorporate knowledge around stress responses and how they are stored in the body to move toward growth and healing. I integrate mindfulness, insight-building, and compassion-based approaches. My training as a Developmental and Relational Trauma Therapist gives me insight into how childhood trauma impacts adult relationships.
I see therapy as a collaborative process between practitioner and client and work with my client as we map a therapeutic path together.
