My goal is to create a warm and nonjudgemental atmosphere where my clients feel safe and comfortable expressing themselves. I meet clients where they are at with understanding, compassion, and respect in order to support the exploration of desired changes to empower the growth and healing process. I believe each therapeutic relationship is unique and focus on individual strengths to reach clients' full potential. - Katie
