Katie is a Licensed Creative Art Therapist, Board-Certified Music Therapist and trauma-informed psychotherapist specializing in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization) music psychotherapy and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for symptoms of anxiety, PTSD, and depression. Katie works with a somatic approach for the development of mind-body awareness to focus on where we hold stress and anxiety and to release through breath and sound. Through this awareness, we can begin to release tension and realign to our natural sense of wellbeing.
Katie works with clients who have experienced trauma either from a single incident or repeated trauma. She uses EMDR, music, and breath-work in a holistic, collaborative manner to help clients reduce symptoms and be able to move through and past trauma.
Katie encourages a sense of play and creativity into her practice, including creative movement, free writing, music improvisation, song writing, and deep listening meditation. The subconscious, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the self come through curiosity and "Lila" a Sanskrit word meaning "divine play" where we can safely connect with our vulnerability and begin to heal and thrive.
