Hello. My name is Katherine Martin and I am a Licensed Clincal Social Worker licensed to practice therapeutic counseling. I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Psychology in 1997 from Purdue University. In 2000, I graduated from Indiana University with a Master's Degree in Social Work and received my license in 2004. I have worked in the social work and counseling industry in various different capacities but mostly specializing in children and family. I have a diverse background in working with many issue the plaque us and our families and can help to find strengths in every situation. My work experience and ambition is a true reflection of my deep and genuine interest in people and what makes each of us achieve a happy balance.
I also have a deep appreciation and much compassion for our canine friends and through my vast years in the animal rescue world, I have come to realize and truly believe the incredible gift that animals bring to humans. Because of that, I currently own a private practice named Canine Assisted Therapeutic Counseling and Healing or simply CATCH. It is amazing how we can bond with another species so rapidly and receive such love and comfort from our fur friends. I will have a therapy dog with me during most sessions and welcome other fur companions to join.
I am a strengths based therapist and am proficient at CBT, DBT and TF-CBT. We go through many different phases in life as we grow and experience our own personal journey. Our journey is unique to us and sometimes we struggle to move forward with our decisions, our choices, and our balance with happiness and fulfillment. Whether you are seeking help for yourself, your child, or your family, we can come up with viable solutions together to help you enjoy the quality of your life and your family.
