Hi! I'm Katy. I'm a LGBTQIA affirming mental health counselor working with individuals, couples, teens, and families in the Denver area.
Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate in Lakewood, CO

I aim to create an affirming environment where clients can openly discuss their feelings, concerns, and personal experiences without fear of judgment or discrimination. My goal is to support individuals in developing a positive self-image, coping skills, and resilience while navigating various challenges, such as societal stigma, family dynamics, and self-acceptance.
I am to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for individuals and couples to discuss their concerns openly. I work collaboratively with clients to identify the physical, psychological, and relational factors contributing to sexual issues. Through communication exercises, education, and personalized strategies, I help clients develop healthier attitudes towards sex, overcome performance anxiety, and improve sexual communication.
In counseling, I address the emotional well-being of individuals following childbirth. I recognize the potential for postpartum depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders that can arise during this time. Postpartum counseling offers a safe space to discuss the challenges of adjusting to new roles, changing dynamics, sleep deprivation, and the overwhelming emotions that can accompany early parenthood.
