Hi! Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. If you are exploring Better Help, I think it's most likely because you or a loved one is facing a significant challenge right now, or perhaps it's a chronic challenge, and you've thought about therapy many times but weren't sure where to turn. First, seeking therapy is not an easy decision and I want to commend you for taking this step. Second, finding the right connection with a therapist is, in my opinion, equally important to finding one with excellent training and experience.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 11 years of experience. The bulk of those years I spent working with families struggling with complex family trauma and mental health issues. In most recent years, I have been working with children and families in foster care; foster care is a system with a lot of moving parts and often these families, not just the children, are experiencing many challenging circumstances that they need help navigating through. I also have several years of pastoral counseling experience and have counseled with couples (both married and unmarried) facing a wide variety of challenges including fertility issues, parenting/ raising family concerns, relational boundaries, and communication challenges.
My style of therapy is warm, interactive, and personal. I believe that everyone's struggle is different and therefore, the approach needs to be unique to the individual.
Treating people with sensitivity, dignity, and compassion at all times is important to me. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels or in placing limitations on someone because of a current struggle. I tend to gravitate towards Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Family Systems Theory. I am also a Christian who believes in God; I believe that God is a good, and loving Father who has both the desire and ability to heal and restore hearts that are wounded. I believe that faith and spirituality play an important role in our emotional health and overall well-being. However, I will cater my approach to your needs and what helps you to feel the most comfortable. You are the most important person in this process to me.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Katelyn Peers. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
Katelyn has been wonderful and is a great listener. She gives sound, practical advise and tools to review. Helped me introspect many areas that I would have otherwise overlooked.
I find myself thinking about the things she has said to me during our sessions. It has kept me positive and gives me insight!
