Hello! I'm Katie.
I specialize in Complex PTSD, Dissociation, Emotional Immature Family Members, Mood Dysregulation, and Addictions.
I have experience in various levels of care and working with chemical and process addictions.
I started working with trauma in 2017 at the Ross Institute as a student intern, where she first gained experience working with complex PTSD. I am currently in training to obtain certification in Somatic Experiencing, a trauma therapy that focuses on regulating the nervous system and the body.
How I provide support
I work best with clients who prefer a direct approach and have been trying to heal from trauma for a prolonged period of time without a lot of results. I found that spirituality is an important part of the trauma-healing process. To me, spirituality looks like connecting with nature and the earth and expands beyond the traditional organized religious perspective. It means drawing upon the wisdom of eastern philosophy to give the skills learned in therapy a deeper meaning. Trauma often comes with compulsive behaviors, and I do not take the abstinence-only perspective, but emphasize harm reduction as an alternative to completely cutting something out of their life. I integrate elements from Somatic Experiencing and Mindfulness Therapy.
Join me for therapy sessions, either online or in-person at our office in Denton, Texas, to experience a different approach to addressing your mental health needs.
