Meet Kate

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LMSW

Time for a new way of living? You know it’s time for a change and you suspect a partner could be helpful even though it feels more natural to do things by yourself. I would consider it a privilege to work with you. I offer a quiet, non-judgmental space for you to explore your history, current situation, and goals for the future.


Prior to being a psychotherapist, I spent over 20 years at both for-profit and non-profit organizations within positions of leadership. I intimately understand the pressures of the 24/7 work world and the stress it places on self and relationships. I was passionate about training and development, helping young leaders find their voice, and being a mentor.


As time passed, I felt that I could better support people outside of the work environment on a deeper level. Changing careers at mid-life was challenging and 100% worth it. Because of my experience, I have an affinity for working with people who are negatively impacted by their work environment and are seeking to reignite or change their career.


My commitment is to support you in learning to acknowledge your strengths and understand your values so that you can regain focus and energy. It is one of my values to stay up to date with current research on brain science and to attend regular trainings on therapeutic modalities so that I can help you with anxiety, depression, and past trauma. I like to incorporate outside resources such as books, videos, support groups, or apps. to add to your growth.


The office is at the Pathway Center for Psychotherapy in Berkeley Lake, GA. I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) practicing under the supervision of Darrin Bronfman, LCSW. I work with individuals and couples aged 18 and up.


My practice is a LGBTQ safe space and I welcome all that have experienced, explicitly or implicitly, being othered by mainstream society.  It can be a traumatic experience leaving psychological scars and incredible strength.


You can call  or email me to set up set up a phone consultation, 30-minute consultation in person, or to schedule an appointment. Both consultation options are free of charge.

Ready to explore therapy? Schedule a free 30-minute consultation.

“I find deep meaning in supporting people as they explore ways to live with a higher level of comfort and fulfillment. Everyone can change. Support and partnership is often helpful.”
