Hi, I’m Katie!
I use an eclectic approach to therapy – all that means is that I take techniques from lots of different types of therapy to help you understand yourself and encourage change. I often use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help reduce anxiety, cope with the residual impact of trauma, increase ability to manage depression symptoms, and improve self-esteem. I create a non-judgmental and calm space for you to explore and work through feelings, thoughts, image, and beliefs that may be keeping you stuck. In addition I provide feedback about how to increase self-awareness to make positive, healthy changes.
If you struggle from the effects of anxiety, depression, and/or the impact of past trauma, I will help give you the tools so that you can get back on track and start living your best life.
I help you identify some common, unhealthy thought patterns and work with you to create healthier thoughts and behaviors that lead to an increase in happiness and satisfaction. Because if we focus on creating and believing more positive thoughts, our emotional health improves as well.
I am a licensed professional counselor in Pennsylvania and graduated from Millersville University with my Master’s in Clinical Psychology in 2010. I’ve been working in the field for 11 years. My clinical experience includes individual counseling, substance abuse counseling, mobile therapy, and behavioral consulting.
When not in the office, I’m outside as much as possible and enjoy almost anything active – hiking, biking, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming. I try my hand at gardening with mixed results (somewhere between a green and black thumb). And I have a Weimaraner with loads of energy to keep me busy!
