Kate’s style is warm, compassionate, engaged, and collaborative. She believes that therapy can be a transformative experience. She feels that the authentic connection, reflection, and support that therapy provides can work as an empowering and meaningful space for individuals to process past pain and work towards more focused and sustained balance in their life.
Kate works with individuals and couples and specialized in areas such as; depression, anxiety, trauma, career stress, parenting, communication, relational trust and intimacy. Kate’s therapeutic approach is integrative but rooted in a relational model, meaning her work is grounded in the belief that the therapeutic relationship works as a model of stability, safety, and reflection. She pulls from theories of attachment and feminism, and helps her clients explore and process present and past experiences that may be holding them back.
She has a background in art and music, and has worked in high paced professional work environments as well as in the entertainment industry. Her varied past experiences gives her a deepened understanding of many of life’s demands and challenges.
Kate obtained an MA in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Antioch University, and trained at Counseling West counseling center. Her approach is mindful and culturally sensitive and she is LGBTQ+ affirmative.

You don’t have to go through hard things alone. It gives me great pleasure to forge direct, nurturing relationships with my clients as we work to diminish life’s distress and increase personal satisfaction.
I practice from a psychodynamic, attachment based lens to build awareness into how you evolved, who you are today, and who you envision yourself to be within a connected, safe therapeutic relationship. We work toward creating what you decide is meaningful. I use a range of interdisciplinary techniques to tailor treatment to my clients. I am LQBTQIA+ affirmative.
We can address anxiety, depression, trauma, guilt, grief, shame, creative blocks, coping skills, communication skills, intimacy issues, automatic thoughts, identity changes, problematic behavior patterns, post-partum issues, new parenting stressors, narcissistic abuse, self-acceptance, situational challenges, relational problems, stage of life issues,
sex and gender positivity, strength awareness, constructed narratives, increasing mindfulness, expanding awareness and insight to create lasting change. I believe therapy can include lightheartedness and humor.
I attended the University of Notre Dame and finished my BFA at UCLA. I have a Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University. Before entering private practice, I trained in community mental health at Counseling West.
Beginning is often the most difficult step in any worthy endeavor. I invite you to reach out to explore the benefits therapy holds for you.
