Professional statement

Dr. Kate Stewart is a Clinical Psychologist who offers in-person sessions in Washington, DC, and remote sessions to clients based in Rhode Island. She specializes in working with adults across the lifespan who are experiencing challenges related to depression, anxiety, relationships, and trauma. She particularly enjoys working with members of the LGBTQIA and POC communities. In addition, she has extensive experience working with individuals who are considering gender-affirming actions and procedures.

Dr. Stewart takes an eclectic treatment approach that integrates a number of different treatment modalities, including Psychodynamic Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and mindfulness practices. She considers herself to be a humanistic and relational psychologist who believes it is very important to spend time understanding the cultural context of a client’s life before moving into a treatment plan. She educates her clients on their symptoms and what may be contributing to them before moving into evidence-based techniques her clients can use to manage them. She frequently checks in with her clients to see how they are feeling and ensure they are moving towards their goals.

Dr. Stewart’s warmth and compassion are apparent the moment clients meet her. She did her postdoctoral fellowships at the Providence VA Medical Center and Brown University’s Counseling and Psychological Services. She received her PhD from American University.


Message to clients

I learn a lot from my clients. One of the most important lessons that I've learned is that our relationships -- to other people, to ourselves, our work, our emotions, and countless other aspects of daily life -- are powerful. By looking at your relationships together, we can bring understanding to your challenges and empower you to take actions that establish and grow your well-being.
