Message from Kate

I am passionate about the need for more queer & trans-affirmative mental healthcare, and practicing from a multicultural lens. I conduct my work with clients with radical acceptance and an anti-racist framework. I prioritize building a therapy space where my clients feel heard and valued. Receiving honest feedback from my clients is invaluable to my work. Taking the first step to prioritize your mental health and wellness is a huge accomplishment! I look forward to the opportunity to help you build more self-compassion and coping skills. Therapy can be a life-changing experience, and I am so glad you are here.

How participatory are you during sessions?

I come from a person-centered approach to therapy, meaning I will modify the role I have with each client to best support them. If you are someone who likes to talk through your presenting problems and want someone to give you that space, I am happy to be an active listener and engage in questions and reflections after you are finished. If you are looking for a more active approach to sessions, I am happy to engage in more back-and-forth dialogue and exercises. I want to balance supporting my clients with constructively challenging them, as I believe that combination helps them get the most out of therapy. We can figure out what that balance looks like for you together!

How should I prepare for my first session with you?

All that I ask is that you come to our first session with an open mind and try your best to be open with me. The first session or two will include intake questions so I can get to know you better, including discussing what you are hoping to get out of your time in therapy. Building a patient-therapist relationship takes time and trust, and the more honest you are with me about your goals and any trepidations you are having, the more I will be able to support you.

What led you to become a mental healthcare practitioner?

Seeing the life-changing experience proper mental healthcare had for my own life and for many of the people I love. Also understanding the need for more accessible mental healthcare with multicultural competencies, and wanting to contribute to the growth of that.

How do you approach diversity in the room or working with clients who may come from a different background than you?

My training highly emphasized counseling from a multicultural and social justice orientation, meaning I have studied and had fieldwork with clients of diverse identities and lived experiences. I aim to create a therapeutic relationship where tough conversations are encouraged and explored. I counsel from an anti-racist, queer, and trans-affirmative lens, and am constantly working to expand my multicultural competence.

From your perspective, what is therapy?

Therapy should be a space where clients can feel heard and validated, acknowledging that many presenting problems have systemic roots. I believe that clients have everything they need inside them and aim to help them look within to find their strengths and empower themselves.
