Katie is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in NC. Katie graduated from East Carolina University's Counselor Education program, receiving an MS with specializations in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with Bachelor's degrees in Human Development and Family Studies and Communication Studies. She completed her graduate practicum in a middle school, and she worked with an ECU grant to partner with a rural elementary school and provide trauma-informed disaster mental health services to students, families, and school personnel during her internships. Katie has also had experiences mentoring college students and leading middle school small groups with her church, and she is passionate about forming healthy, supportive relationships with every individual she encounters.

 

Katie works with children (beginning at age 5), adolescents, and adults. Her interest areas include: school-mental health partnerships, self-esteem and social skills in adolescents, grief and loss, improving relationships, and adverse childhood experiences.

 

Katie believes that the heart of transformational counseling is a therapeutic relationship centered on trust and safety. She seeks to connect with her clients in ways that make them feel seen, heard, and known. With Katie, the therapeutic process is collaborative as she comes alongside clients to help them gain greater self-understanding, self-compassion, and self-acceptance.

 

Katie enjoys crafting at-home lattes, experimenting with new recipes, reading, making music, and going on walks.
