Client testimonials

"Katherine is consistent and caring. She communicates really well and makes me feel super comfortable while challenging me. I have not done a lot of therapy and it is still new to talk about myself a lot. I have found I look forward to our weekly sessions knowing she will help me to dig deep. I think she really cares about both my well being and my growth!"
