Hi, I'm Katie...
I'm a licensed professional counselor -- associate based in Austin, Texas providing individual and group therapy to adults.
My work as a therapist has been deeply driven by my own life experience and searching for healing and wholeness. It took me many years to find my way into this work, but I've never felt more alive and passionate about the role I seek to embody and the clients I serve.
I don't claim to have all of the answers - life and our humanness is much too messy and complex for that. But I believe that feeling truly seen, heard, and understood can be a profound and healing experience, particularly when we've been denied, ignored, or forgotten. What I offer is a genuine presence, unconditional support, and to try and really know and see you just as you are with empathy and compassion. I believe that you are enough already. I'm passionate about joining alongside my clients to help them feel more empowered, sure of themselves, and aligned with who they want to be in the world.
Wherever your journey has taken you thus far, I'm here to listen and provide unconditional acceptance. The relationship that we develop together in our work has the power to become a source of meaningful change. This is why the therapist-client 'fit' is so crucial. We are wounded in relationship, and we also find healing in real, authentic relationship.
So whatever's keeping you stuck, you don't have to face it alone.
Let's share this journey together.
What we'll do...
Every emotion has something to teach us - together we’ll explore your emotions to understand them better and how they might inform how you want to live.
We'll find ways to safely make contact with areas of your life that are causing distress - helping to free you up from whatever's been keeping you stuck.
We'll go at your pace.
We’ll work to empower your sense of agency, freedom, and creativity by helping you discover the power of your own authenticity.
We'll learn about the narratives and beliefs that have shaped your life, and we'll seek to discover more genuine ways of being in the world.
We’ll use the relationship that we develop together in our work as a means of exploring the relational patterns with others in your life.
We’ll work to genuinely shift patterns of distress and angst toward patterns of ease and compassion by helping you get in touch with your own inner experience.
