Kate Walker (she/her)

Accepting Clients

My name is Kate and I am a board certified art therapist and a licensed professional counselor. I'm so excited to meet you!

Art Therapist in Fairfax, VA


About My Clients

Are uncomfortable emotions or limiting beliefs clouding your ability to connect to your internal compass and live a life aligned with what you value? Have you been left reeling from the impacts of the pandemic, world events, or recent federal or state legislative changes? Is the stress of both these macro and micro factors manifesting in anxiety, depression, a disordered relationship with food, feeling lost, confused or overwhelmed? If so, I'm here to help you make sense of it all.

My Background and Approach

It is my intention to be a fellow traveler on your path towards understanding who you are and what you need. How we go about that is dependent on what you connect with most. Whether that is utilizing the creative process to explore, express and contain the spectrum of emotions we experience as human beings, translating the tenets of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to your life and what you’re wanting for yourself, or combining a variety of approaches to foster a connection to and understanding of self, you are in the driver’s seat. I am a board certified Art Therapist and a Licensed Professional Counselor with experience in treating a variety of anxiety, depression and trauma diagnoses as well as eating disorders. I currently have availability for adults 18 years and up for individual therapy. Let's work together in pursuit of progress rather than perfection and increase your comfort with all the facets of who you are.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe change is possible when we couple compassionate curiosity with consistent and appropriate support. We are social creatures by nature and thrive when we feel connected and understood by others. But it can be hard to seek out those connections when we're struggling to understand and be at peace with ourselves. Therapy can provide a safe space to bring light and understanding to the core hurts that fuel our desires to avoid. These protective layers and defense mechanisms often help us survive, but authentic connection to self and others is what helps us to thrive.
