Professional statement

Psychotherapy is Kathy's second career. Kathy is a licensed clinical social worker, however she began her professional journey working on macro social issues pertaining to international affairs.

For undergraduate studies, Kathy pursued a BS in international affairs from the George Washington University. Then she served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Amman, Jordan. Her time overseas focused on economic justice for women and children. After volunteering, she continued to focus on diplomacy working at the U.S. Department of State. She expanded her interests, earning a master’s degree in conflict analysis and resolution the George Mason University. During her studies she realized that one-to-one relationships brought true peace, and realized she needed to earn a Masters in Social Work to become licensed to work directly with people, in contrast to organizations.

Kathy earned a Masters of Social Work at the Catholic University of America concentrating on Attachment, Internal Family Systems, and Transpersonal modalities. She focused on the veteran population and hospice. She has experience with young children age 3 and older; youth, adolescents; young adults in their college years; adults; and older adults. She has worked in the hospital, psychiatric hospital, and school settings; in hospice; mental health clinics; and in the community.

Kathy's practice focuses on the Internal Family System modality (IFS). IFS is a strengths based approach that honors the multiplicity of the mind (generally referred to as parts) and a center core of wholeness or Self. Helping clients to see their parts and connecting to an inner Self full of compassion, connection, creativity, calm, and clarity is her passion.


Message to clients

I deeply understand you, because I am you. I want to travel with you on this journey.

I know what you are going through. I have lived with low self esteem, overwhelm, depression, and anxiety. I have experienced (and still do!) the tension between my many thoughts and multitudes of feelings. I get it, things are hard. Some days parts of me are all over the map. No shame here.

I have hope. I have been able to forge a way through with a connection to my authentic self. I see and experience the inner tension between my parts in an enlightening way. I ride the waves connected to my authentic self. I have had fabulous wipeouts (think marriage/divorce; career dreams/slashed); and connected to a deep authentic self that has been my compass through all the wonderful complexities of life.

This is available to everyone. I have worked with many who have connected to their authentic self making positive changes in their life.
