About Katie

As a young girl, my family experienced many hardships including my father passing away suddenly. I remember going to counseling and feeling so uncomfortable to open up and I feared being judged. I became a counselor to help others experiencing hardships and my goal is to offer a warm, comfortable environment free of judgment and bias. In my counseling practice, I am passionate about truly connecting with each client and family that I serve. 

 

I enjoy working with children, teens, and young adults to overcome obstacles that are interfering in their daily lives and help them obtain a greater level of fulfillment.
