Katie works with individuals, couples, and families to help improve mood, anxiety, relationships, and overall wellbeing. In her individual work, she uses cognitive behavioral (CBT) and relational therapies to help teach clients skills that will improve their ability to respond to various life circumstances and to overcome depression, anxiety, stress, and relationship problems.
Katie also works with relationship issues such as couple conflict, parent child conflict, parenting, adjusting to life transitions, infidelity, and child behavioral problems to help strengthen relationships. In her couples and family therapy, Katie’s approach focuses on addressing the behaviors of everyone in a family system to make a helpful difference on the family as a whole. Her treatment approach involves Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to improve attachment bonds within a family as well as tools developed by Dr. John Gottman to improve relationship health.
Katie earned her Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Regis University in Denver, CO. She attained a certification as a Dialectical Behavior Therapy Facilitator and completed additional training in Trauma-Informed counseling practices, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy Externship (EFT), Pragmatic-Experiential Method for Improving Relationships (The PEX Method), and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
Outside of work, Katie enjoys reading non-fiction books, going to concerts, and occasionally going for a run. Katie is under the supervision of Dr. Sean Stokes, LPC-S, LMFT-S, as she completes her licensure requirements.
