Katie's Story

 

Since I was young I had a passion for stories, the cliffs and the arcs and the hero's journey to a more authentic and fulfilled self. Becoming a therapist allows me to be a part of those transitional chapters where the hero faces the monsters and finds their path to becoming the warrior they are. 

As a therapist I lean into the narrative lens, the overarching story, the broken attachments, and themes of interests or passions as we craft future goals. I am strength based and often pull from mindfulness practices such as meditation. I also enjoy utilizing writing prompts to encourage self-reflection, and to look at thoughts and negative self-talk to help shift to a more self-compassionate perspective. 

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Millikin University with a Bachleor's of Science in Psychology with a minor in Philosophy in 2009 and received my Master's of Education at Seattle University in Community Counseling.

I hold a specialization as a mental health therapist for the LGBTQ and non-binary population. I affirm and celebrate all sexualities and relationships and have experience working with poly and kinky individuals and couples. 

FUN FACTS

Hearts

My priority has always been to work with my community- because growing up in the Midwest, that community and understanding can be hard to find. I've been a therapist and specialist in the LGBTQ since 2013.

In 2017 I presented with the legendary Allena Gabosch, former Director of the Center for Sex Positive Culture, on "How to become a more Kink-Aware Therapist". *Because I don't think you should have to educate your therapist

And...I'm totally a cat person. Which I say because after a year of working from home and locking the office door, I've admitted defeat. So...my 17 year old feisty cat may make a cameo and meow some life advice.
