Katie graduated from Portland State University with a Masters in Social Work and currently provides therapy to healers and entrepreneurs, using a holistic approach focused on Narrative therapy, mindfulness and Family Systems Theory. Katie has specialized training in sensory enrichment and mindfulness as well as holistic healing for women. She is also a clinical supervisor to therapists working toward licensure.

Katie provides therapy to help individuals heal from co-dependency, perfectionism and the FAWN response, allowing clients to experience daily life from a conscious and compassionate lens. Katie uses mindfulness and compassionate inquiry to explore how present and past stories are experienced in the nervous system and how these stories influence our experiences.

Katie uses expressive art and art solutions for processing grief and loss. She uses sensory enrichment, mindfulness, expressive and visual arts to become more aware of ones own conscious thoughts and feelings. This helps clients process information without being cued to trauma informed responses that may have been learned to adapt to trauma.
