Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Berkeley, CA

About My Clients

Many of Katie's clients are empaths, deep thinkers, and have many talents, however may lack self-esteem, are facing a transition in their lives, experienced a trauma or need some guidance on tricky issues. Katie supports each individual or family system to navigate the struggles - be it depression, anxiety, parenting concerns, identity exploration, relationship pain - while highlighting strengths and building new skills.

My Background and Approach

Katie believes the best healing is done in relationships. With a warm, authentic approach, Katie builds trust with clients to allow for vulnerability, risk taking, and ultimately personal growth. In family therapy sessions, Katie encourages family members to share stories and to listen deeply, bringing validation and stronger connections. In working with youth or adults, Katie likes to use a blend of insight-oriented and skills-based approaches, drawing from her experience with cognitive behavior therapy, trauma work, and attachment theory. Having worked in public services for many years, Katie welcomes clients from different cultures and backgrounds and can provide services in English or Spanish. With a trauma-informed approach, Katie also has extensive training in treating eating disorders or other high risk situations. As a seasoned telehealth provider, Katie offers remote sessions to anyone located in California.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Katie adheres to the notion that two things can be true: we can show ourselves more self-love and acceptance AND work towards change at the same time. Katie works collaboratively with clients to find themes, set goals and develop new practices. With supportive, gentle guidance, Katie will present creative strategies and new ways of viewing an issue that bring more healing. Katie's favorite part of this work is meeting new people. Katie continually finds herself inspired and humbled by people opening up and sharing with me. Her approach is very personable as she acknowledges the shared humanity in wanting more ease in our lives. In addition to being a therapist, she is a mother of two children. She spends her free time traveling, being active, being in nature, and treasuring relationships. Katie would be honored to partner with you on your journey and looks forward to connecting soon.
