I really can't stand reading therapist bios. To me they feel like the warning announcement on medication commercials, so I'll try and keep this simple.
I'm Kat. I love clients who are willing to work on themselves. Therapy can be messy, real messy, and I'm here to help you wade through and come out on the other side.
Some facts about me: I've worked with a variety of populations from hospice to inpatient psych. I think cilantro is an insult to herbs. I despise the phrase, "pull yourself up by the bootstraps." I read a lot, and my favorite colors are black and green. I'm an advocate for mental health education and inclusivity, and actively help to fight against the stigma our country has toward mental illness. I'm (unapologetically) a hot mess and I'm happily medicated for my own mental health.
I'm a parent to a couple humans and a few fur babies, married, and confidently winging life. I wish there was a road map to existing after trauma but since there isn't, I strive to make my office a safe space for you to unpack your history and work to write out the future you want. If I haven't lost you yet, I think you deserve to have a person; I'll be your person.
