Kate Pickens, MS
As a United States Navy veteran, I have a special interest in working with military veterans but also enjoy working with adults and adolescents with a variety of mental health concerns. As a therapist, I believe the therapeutic relationship is built on trust, honesty, safety, and empathy. I would like to work together to deepen your awareness and understanding of your needs, desires, and patterns of relating, so you may experience a more authentic and fulfilling life. It is my belief that emphasizing your positive traits and behaviors will promote growth, healing, and fulfillment within yourself. I use a holistic approach to help you better understand what your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors mean, and how they relate to your present-day struggles and challenges. I use a combination of mind and body-based approaches such as talk therapy, CBT, CPT, self-compassion, and mindfulness. I look forward to working with you and cannot wait to get started.
Kate received her Master's degree in Counseling from the University of Phoenix and is currently supervised by Dr. Erin Bowman.
