Dr. Kate Stewart is a Clinical Psychologist who offers in-person sessions in Madison, WI and remote sessions to clients based in Wisconsin and Rhode Island. She specializes in working with college students—including undergrads, grads, medical, and law students—though she sees adults across the lifespan. Dr. Stewart also specializes in 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, including gratitude exercises. 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.
