Hello and Welcome!
My name is Katherine, but I go by Kate. I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker - Clinical (LCSW-C) in the state of Maryland with over 9 years of experience in various direct care settings. I received my Master's of Social Work (MSW) from the University of Maryland in 2010. I have worked with children to elderly adults, providing individual, couples, and family counseling. I currently work with the military and their dependents, providing brief, solution-focused counseling. I have extensive experience working with individuals in the management of depression, stress, grief/loss, self-esteem, relationship issues, life transitions, and conflicts.
My counseling approach is warm, relaxed, and individualized to best meet your needs. I prefer an interactive style to build on your existing strengths. I like to use a variety of evidence-based approaches, focusing on education to ensure you have the tools and skills needed to help yourself. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and psychodynamic counseling. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I am committed to approaching your presenting issue with dignity, respect, empathy, and without judgement.
I believe that in difficult times in our lives, when experiencing significant emotional pain, sometimes the only way forward is through our faith. I am here to support you in healing through Christ's love in a holistic, spiritually inclusive approach. Seeking growth takes a lot of courage and you have already taken such an important first step. I will assist you in resolving your issues to find a happier life. I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals!
