A prior intern at Chrysalis, Katie has officially joined the team as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate and is excited to continue working with adolescents and adults seeking help with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, codependency, self-esteem, and body image. She will also see couples utilizing modalities from the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy. By December 2023, Katie will be trained in Internal Family Systems Therapy (Level 1) and often approaches therapy from the lens that we all have “parts” of us that, despite their best intentions, keep us from experiencing the connection with ourselves and others that we truly crave.
Katie received her bachelor’s degree in Theatre from UNCW and her master’s in counseling from Concordia University Irvine. Before her career as a therapist, she received her license in Massage and Bodywork Therapy and lived in New York, trying out careers in the creative, software, and financial industries. These experiences have enriched Katie’s knowledge of “the world of work,” so she is also happy to offer help to clients who feel stuck in or unsure of their jobs or careers. In session, Katie offers a calming presence and believes the therapeutic relationship can be a model of healthy connection, safety, and vulnerability while clients learn to heal and grow.
