Meet Kate

What is your favorite place?

La Jolla Cove, San Diego, CA. I’ve only been a handful of times, but something about that place feels so grounding.

If you weren’t a mental health professional, what would you be doing?

I would absolutely be a chef or a recipe/food content creator. I am obsessed with cooking and baking, as well as mixing different flavors and cooking techniques.

What do you do for self-care/self-love?

I enjoy tinkering in the kitchen with different ingredients to create a delicious meal, getting crafty with art supplies, and spending a lot of time on walks with my goldendoodle, Sully.

What is your favorite quote?

“Do I believe in ghosts? I do. But more importantly, I think they need to believe in themselves.” – Ted Lasso

What is your favorite way to move your body?

I love to be in water, so swimming is probably my favorite. I have recently been practicing yoga, which has quickly become a new love.

Who is your ideal client?

My ideal client would be a teen or young adult who is bravely open to getting in touch with their feelings. I love working with people who are creative, eager to learn, and open to expressing themselves.

Why do you like being a therapist?

Lightbulb moments. I feel like a rockstar when I see others making new connections or formulating new ideas about their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. “I hadn’t thought of it like that”, is like music to my ears!

What is something you wish people knew about therapy?

Therapy takes a lot of intentional, hard work— what you put into the work is what you will get out of it. It takes a lot of courage to show up for yourself, work through tough moments in life, and be vulnerable with another person. The work is usually well worth the reward.

Why/how can people benefit from therapy?

Therapy can help people get in touch with their desires, as well as learn how to be better, more grounded human beings. It offers you the opportunity to explore the world around you in a safe, warm environment where everything you think and feel can be on the table. I have also found in my own personal journey with therapy that it can be so validating to have another person sitting with you, really hearing you, and offering alternative perspectives that might cultivate change or action.

What is something you’d like clients to know about you (or how you work)?

I am very open to feedback. I appreciate it when a client is able to articulate how they are feeling about the work of therapy at any given point. I will offer many opportunities for you to check in with how therapy feels for you and if there is anything we can do differently in our time together. I value collaboration with the client above anything, and want you to feel as safe and engaged as possible

What does success in therapy look like to you?

Success in therapy is in termination. My goal is to help you leave therapy feeling empowered, centered, and with the right tools and skills to navigate your world.

What are your thoughts about the “stigma” of therapy?

I find that many clients struggle with wanting to say or do the right thing in therapy, or feel as if their therapist is judging them for what they share. This can make it difficult to engage in therapy and will take some time to work through. Stick with it, you might discover parts of you that need to be explored!

Background

Kate began her clinical work as an adjustment counseling intern in a high school, and as trainee clinician in the counseling center of a small liberal arts college in Boston. Before transitioning into the field of social work, Kate also worked with middle and high school students in a religious education setting for seven years. She is incredibly passionate about young people and hopes to spend her career as a therapist helping teens and young adults navigate the messiness of their rapidly changing worlds. Some of her clinical interests include work around body image, identity formation, spirituality, anxiety, and LGBTQIAS+ centered care. Her therapeutic style is eclectic, and her approach is warm, collaborative, and relationally focused.
