Kathryn believes in meeting her clients where they are and creating a trusting and empathetic therapeutic bond that helps facilitate change and growth. She uses an eclectic approach to therapy based on each client’s needs, including Family/Marital Systems Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered/Humanistic Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. Kathryn’s guidance will help clients to take a step back, breathe, and gain a thirty thousand foot view of their concerns. This will then provide them with the insight, problem-solving tools, and goals to move away from self-destructive thinking and habits and increase balance and wellness.
