Professional statement

Katie Ashworth is a Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern in Fort Myers, Florida. She specializes in trauma and the negative symptoms trauma creates in individuals, such as anxiety, depression, and stress. She utilizes EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to reprocess traumatic memories in order to reduce the negative symptoms or feelings associated with the traumatic memory. She also uses cognitive behavioral therapy and person centered therapy to give her clients an all around approach that is specific to their needs.

In person and virtual sessions are available through a HIPAA compliant teletherapy service. Her office is located in Fort Myers, Florida near the Estero area but provides virtual sessions to individuals throughout Florida.


Message to clients

Experiencing trauma on any level can be incredibly difficult to process and overcome without help. There are different types of trauma, ranging from acute to complex, which leaves individuals with anxiety, depression, and stress from the trauma they have endured, whether it be physical, emotional, or sexual. One of the most important factors in therapy is having someone who you feel safe with. I strive to be that person for my clients and provide a nonjudgmental and comfortable space to ensure that. My hope is that my client's feel at ease with me and allow themselves to trust the process in therapy to get where they want to be.
