Meet Katie, MSW, RSW
I have been in the field of Social Work since 2013. Client-centered practice is the foundation from which I work. I will not claim to be an expert in your life. I am here to create a journey of appreciation, understanding, and connection. Most of my work has been on the front lines, working with people who are vulnerable for a variety of reasons including isolation, depression, stress, and coping. Compassion, empathy, trust, and equality are core values I developed throughout my work and I believe they create the building blocks of a successful therapeutic relationship.
In my personal time I keep busy with my family. Being outdoors and physically active is essential for my mental health and I incorporate it into my daily life.

The theoretical approaches I like to include are:
Person in their environment (PIE)
I draw from a variety of techniques and through collaboration we can create sessions unique to your needs, wants and goals.
