Kat works with individuals, couples, and families to co-create spaces of safety and healing in order to support long term success. Together, Kat and her clients uncover and unpack patterns of behavior and thought that may no longer be serving a purpose. With a trusting therapeutic dynamic, Kat encourages new, empowered patterns that support client goals and authentic development of self. Kat utilizes a holistic approach drawing upon strengths based, feminist, and internal family system theories to find the best fit for every client. Kat leverages her background in art and meditation to keep therapy stimulating and accessible.
