Hello! My name is Kait and I am a Licensed Graduate Social Worker (LGSW) with a Masters of Social Work (MSW) from the University of St. Thomas. I work with adolescents (15+), adults, couples, and families who are experiencing the effects of trauma, stress, or transition in an effort to facilitate safety, healing, and wellbeing.
I believe how we experience the world is complex and includes our relational and developmental histories, genetics and biological make-up, experiences with others, and the systems in which we live. Collectively, these factors continuously impact how we feel, think and behave.
My approach to therapy is relational, collaborative and non-judgmental.
My hope as a therapist is to provide a space in which you feel safe and empowered to explore your unique experience while collaborating with you to identify opportunities for meaningful change and relationships. I believe each of us has the capacity for wellbeing, which is sometimes best ignited through support, connection, and exploration.
In this process, I pull from a variety of evidence-based therapy approaches that center around your hopes and goals. In addition to traditional talk therapy, I also have training in mindfulness, somatic (mind-body), and Internal Family Systems, or “parts work” therapy approaches, which can offer additional opportunities for healing and creativity.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my partner and dog, connecting with nature, hiking (lots of hiking!), growing my list of favorite coffee shops (suggestions always welcome!), and playing board games.
