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 emotion regulation, depression, anxiety, relationships, and identity concerns. She focuses on working with members of the LGBTQ (including ENM and polyamory) and POC communities. In addition, she has extensive experience supporting individuals who want to explore gender and gender-affirming changes in their lives.
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 is a humanistic and relational psychologist who prioritizes understanding the cultural context of a client’s life before moving into a treatment plan. She collaborates with her clients to understand 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.
