Licensed Mental Health Counselor
As an empath, I often played the "shoulder to cry on" or "advice giver" role for my loved ones, so becoming a therapist was a natural career path. My passion for mental health comes from the connections I make with people. I believe the therapeutic relationship I develop with clients plays a significant role in exploring and processing hardships. Without trust, how deep can therapy really go?
I work from a systemic and attachment lens, which is a fancy way of saying I look at how culture and relationships impact your mental health. I believe that we thrive when we find meaningful connections and when we align with our values. When these things are off balance, issues like anxiety, depression, chronic pain, grief, and shame may reek havoc on life. These can be healed if you give yourself permission to explore them, and I'm here to help guide you through that process.
My office is a safe space for all genders, sexual orientations, and ethnicities. I continuously check my privileges and work to be an ally and co-rebel for oppressed communities. With compassion, safety, and laughter, I hope to aid you in your healing journey.
Credentials: I have a Bachelor's in Psychology and Master's in Clinical Counseling, along with prior experience at an inpatient facility for mental health and substance use crisis. I've been a private practice provider since 2019.

“Katie is wonderful! Her communication style, personality, and empathic energy makes it easy to feel safe and to build a therapeutic relationship.
She has a way of navigating people to recognize their own power and potential, finding the tools and skills necessary for self growth and development along the way. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking therapy or talk sessions!”
“Years ago I went to a therapist and had a bad experience so I was hesitant to do it again. Katie was understanding of this and let me set the pace on what we talked about and how deep I wanted to go. I now enjoy our weekly sessions and look forward to them.”
“Katie is so easy to talk to. I was really nervous when I had my first session due to the sensitivity of topics I wanted to discuss. Katie saw my anxiety and helped me work through it. From that first session on, I have felt relaxed and comfortable talking with her about anything. I highly recommend Rainy Day Therapy to anyone who is looking for self discovery, empowerment, self worth, help with stress/anxiety…etc.”
