Each person is unique and may benefit from different approaches and Katelyn will work to find what fits best for you.
Katelyn practices from a client-centered, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive framework that is rooted in attachment, systems, and intersectionality theory. Her approach as a therapist is built on a foundation of safety and respect, while helping individuals recognize they are not alone when needing support. As someone with personal experience healing from trauma, Katelyn has an appreciation for how traumatic events can interfere with our capacity to hold trusting relationships with others.
Everything that you need to overcome life’s challenges is already within yourself – your strengths will be the foundation of our work together.
