As a licensed therapist, I specialize in working with women and their partners during pregnancy, postpartum, or the period of trying to conceive. Bringing children into the world is an initiatory, challenging, and beautiful experience, and having therapeutic support during this time can be particularly helpful.
I also specialize in working with adolescents and their families and have run a nonprofit for more than ten years (www.movimagine.org) that offers therapeutic trips and transformative experiences for young adults. I offer sessions for teens outdoors and in the community, connecting youth with internships and positive community activities.
I bring experience, curiosity, and creativity to our sessions and I am continually pursuing training in research-based treatment modalities that yield positive results. I use a wide range of effective approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt techniques, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Systems Family Therapy, hypnotherapy, somatic therapy, and life coaching.
Kate is a former therapist turned life coach and doula with nearly a decade of experience working with children, adults, and families in the non-profit sector. Kate’s work focuses on offering coaching and healing to women during the postpartum period. She understands the unique gifts and challenges new moms face and aims to provide effective, simple tools to help them feel more confident and connected to their inner wisdom and transition into their new role with greater ease. Blending her training as a therapist and doula, she uses a client-centered, nonjudgmental approach with a down-to-earth style. Kate’s hope is that every person she assists feels supported during their transition to parenthood as an individual or couple; birth and beyond.
