My Approach to Helping
Hello and welcome! As we all can relate, sometimes the most difficult part of change is the START! My name is Katy, and I am an LGBTQAI+ affirming counselor who enjoys mixing music therapy with evidence-based therapeutic approaches to create a non-judgmental safe space to support you in reaching your goals.
I specialize in working with pre-teensteens (age 12-18), adults, families and relationships (ALL relationship styles are safe and welcome! - Traditional, Monogamy, Ethical Non-Monogamy, Polyamory, LGBTQAI+, etc.). I also have experience in working with those battling substance use disordersrelapse prevention, teensadultsfamilies who have had interactions with the legal system or "at risk," Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Life Transitions, Self-Concept, etc. I graduated with my Master's Degree in CounselingPsychology from Troy University (FL Panhandle campuses) in 2007 and became fully licensed in Florida in 2009. I have worked in a Forensic Psychiatric Hospital, Department of Juvenile Justice Residential Treatment Centers, PrisonsJails, Public Schools, and Community Outpatient Clinics.
