SPECIALIZES IN EATING DISORDERS, ANXIETY & LGBTQ+
My name is Katie, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate. At Texas Harmony Counseling, I work with adolescents and adults, from all walks of life and challenges. I primarily utilize evidence-based practices, while holding awareness for cultural and existential influences, and early childhood experiences that can impact our mental health in the present. I primarily use my clinical experience to assist individuals who are experiencing life adjustments, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and LGBTQ+ specific challenges.
I graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2015, with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Ever since my first psychology course, I had an instant desire to pursue a career within the counseling field. I attended the University of St. Thomas - Houston and earned my Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. During my graduate studies, I gained experience working with a wide variety of clients and mental health concerns. First, I had the opportunity to gain experience at a specialized agency, focusing on working with individuals in the LGBTQ+ community, HIV+, and an IOP group for chemical dependency. Second, I gained experience working in an inpatient psychiatric hospital. While there, I worked with individuals of all ages, with varying mental health concerns.
Post-graduation, I worked for a Harris county agency and had the opportunity to work with individuals who experience depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorders. Recently, I have gained experience working at a partial hospitalization program, with adolescents and adults who experience eating disorders, along with adolescents with mood and anxiety disorders.
No matter how many challenges life throws your way, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. As your counselor, I will remain by your side through the challenging times, and celebrate the victories. Let’s find the light together!
