Professional statement

Katie Andrews is a Licenced Mental Health Counselor in Providence, RI who specializes in individual psychotherapy and couples counseling.

Clients come to individual counseling for a variety of reasons, but most wish to reduce stress in a specific area. This stress may feel primarily internal (as anxiety, depression, perfectionism, procrastination, creative blocks, anger, ongoing stress), external (relationships, work, life transitions), or a combination. Individual clients can expect therapy with Katie to provide a comfortable space that helps them share what they are going through without having to hold back in fear of judgment. They can expect the opportunity to learn new skills and develop new ways of relating to themselves and others, and ultimately finding clarity where confusion used to reign. Katie's individual therapy is founded on the compassionate tenets of Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy.

Couples who seek counseling may be experiencing persistent conflict, stuckness, struggling with trust and intimacy, harboring concerns about divorce, or long to resolve a sense of disconnection. Katie's couples counseling practice is rooted in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which helps couples resolve the cycle of disconnection that occurs in their relationship and deepen their trusted bond with the person who matters most.

In addition to her psychotherapy work, Katie is an oil painter, wife, and mom. She particularly enjoys working with clients who are navigating resistance as it relates to the creative process.


Message to clients

My personal life experience and professional practice have taught me that we are all in this process of navigating life's uncertainty, blessings, and blind-siding events together. Connection is one of the most inherently healing things we can experience.

If you decide to reach out to me, you can expect a warm and relaxed therapeutic space - one that respects you, suspends judgment, guides you to trust yourself, and fosters perspective and understanding towards your beautiful self and relationships.

I believe that counseling becomes healing when we approach what you are going through with open-hearted curiosity as opposed to judgment. Even the most impossible scenarios can make sense when we approach them in this way.

Please feel welcome to reach out to me with any questions. It's my pleasure to help you understand what you can experience in therapy with me! I look forward to meeting you and hold real hope that therapy will help you identify what holds you (or your relationship!) back and relate to the many parts of you with an open heart.
