Meet Kate

Hello

 

I imagine you are ready for some relief and a change. You suspect a partner could be helpful even though it feels more natural to do things by yourself. I understand that mindset. Therapy with me offers you a non-judgmental place to explore your past, present, and goals for the future.

 

My Commitment 

 

To support you in learning to acknowledge your strengths. My style is warm, direct and collaborative. I’ll ask questions that may spark a new idea for you and offer observations where appropriate. You can bring lists of topics or show up and say, “I don’t know what I want to talk about.” Either works.

 

While I don’t always sit silently and nod my head, know that silence and time for reflection are important to the process. You can count on me to hold space for you with respect when things become hard or painful.

 

A Little About Me

 

I thrive on working with people in the pursuit of deeper understanding, insight, and achievement of life goals. Exploring clients’ unique story is a huge privilege. I take the work I do very seriously. I know that it takes a lot of guts to enter into a therapy relationship.

 

I became a psychotherapist at mid-life. Prior to the career change, I worked at various organizations within positions of leadership so I understand the pressures of a 24/7 work world!

 

As a therapist, I have an affinity for working with people experiencing anxiety or undue stress brought on by life transitions (career, relationships, grief). Personally and professionally, I’m part of the LGBTQ and adoptee communities.

 

Logistics & Getting in Touch

 

The office is at the District at Chamblee near Mercer University. I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and I work with individuals and couples aged 18 and up.

 

You can call  or email me to set up set up a 30-minute consultation at no charge or to schedule a first full appointment. For more information go to the Contact page.
