Kate is a compassionate, non-judgemental therapist who brings a strong clinical background to her work with adults, teens, children, and families. Using a warm, client-centered approach, Kate helps clients address issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction and trauma.
Kate's clinical experience includes over five years as a therapist for Lutheran Child & Family Services, where she helped children & adolescents in Chicago’s foster care system deal with traumatic experiences stemming from abuse and neglect. Kate has also helped individual adults and couples navigate life challenges, and worked with families to improve communications and create more nurturing relationships.
Kate’s therapeutic approach is tailored to each client’s needs, but she often employs cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, anger management and play therapy in her sessions. She is also a certified EAGALA equine therapist, and as such, can facilitate this unique therapy that incorporates the intuitive power of horses to address mental health and personal development needs.
