Professional statement

Kat is a Licensed Master Social Worker who specializes in childhood and adolescent mental health. Since earning her master’s degree from Columbia University, she has worked as a therapist in primary care medical practices and Early Intervention services. She has experience treating depression, anxiety, OCD, ADHD, trauma, and co-occurring disorders with Autism Spectrum Disorder, among other symptoms.

Kat’s practice is informed by two core beliefs:

1) You are the expert of your own life, and

2) When you are not doing well, it is because there is some sort of barrier in the way. When we work together to figure out what the barrier is, we can then find ways around it (or through it!).

She tailors each session to clients’ needs, both in the moment and long term, using evidence-based practices, such as Motivational Interviewing, Behavioral Activation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), play therapy, and art therapy. Kat has a knack for bonding with her clients and pulling them out of their shells. She accomplishes this by focusing the first few sessions on truly getting to know the individual in the room and incorporating key interests into the therapy process. Her style includes the use of humor in sessions. Though therapy is serious work and often involves discussing painful thoughts and/or experiences, Kat’s clients have fun in sessions and look forward to their regularly scheduled appointments.


Message to clients

Between work, school, parenting, general life obligations, and now, a global pandemic, life can be stressful and overwhelming. Friends and family are all going through their own stressors, and it can be easy to feel unseen, unheard, and invalidated. You deserve a safe space to feel supported where you can speak freely, be validated, process your thoughts and trauma, and grow toward the person you want to be. Therapy is just that place, and I’m so glad you have taken the first step of your healing journey by reading this page.

I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and families dealing with anxiety, autism, depression, trauma, school difficulties, social difficulties, and strained familial relationships. I have extensive experience with BIPOC, LGBTQ, and disabled clients. I offer regularly scheduled sessions, focusing on healing, growth, and skills to help daily life.

You are the expert of your own life. Each session, you will provide me with individual puzzle pieces. It is my job to help you put the pieces together to understand the larger picture; this includes your past, your present, and creating a path to attaining the future of your dreams. Let's set up a free consult to see if I'm the therapist for you.
