Has anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem been making it difficult lately to enjoy your life? Have you been feeling overwhelmed, unhappy, or unfulfilled? If so, I am here to help you identify what is happening in your life and work on positive changes that will put you on the path to start feeling better and being able to live life the way you want to live it.
Hi. I’m Kate.
I have worked with many diverse individuals, including adolescents, young adults, adults, and elderly people, all of whom have come with a variety of socio-cultural identities, including African-American, Hispanic, Latino/Latina, and LGBTQ+. My clients have come seeking relief from anxiety, depression, PTSD, relational difficulties, and low self-esteem. Some have struggled with mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and borderline personality disorder. The commonality among all of these unique individuals is that they, like you, have made the decision to seek help in order to feel better and be able to live their lives to the fullest. It takes great courage to take that first step of seeking help, and I respect you for making
that choice. If you decide to work with me, I will provide an unconditionally non-judgmental place for you to share your stories, fears, hopes, and dreams. I will treat you with dignity and empathy. I will do everything I can to help you alleviate the symptoms that you are experiencing and to help you determine and implement changes
that will enable you to live life feeling more at peace, hopeful, and freer.
My Approach & Values
Counseling is a process by which we work together to identify and address any issues you bring to our sessions. I believe that with the right support, all people can learn how to solve problems they are experiencing and live healthy and productive lives. I recognize that each client is a unique individual who will require a unique approach, and
therefore I draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches to help clients. I believe that a strong counselor-client relationship built on mutual trust and respect is the key to effective mental health care. I also focus on building upon clients’ strengths as a means of promoting wellness and health throughout their lives. If you are interested in exploring what is happening in your life and what it is possible to achieve, I look forward
to working with you and helping you overcome barriers to positive growth. Even if you don’t know what the difficulty may be -if you are just feeling down, “bad,” or worried and fearful- I believe that we can sort it out together and take steps to help alleviate your negative feelings and thoughts, and to replace them with ones that bring you the ability
to live the life you want. I specialize in helping individuals dealing with anxiety, depression, relational difficulties, LGBTQ+ issues, and low self-esteem.
