Katie is an accepting, collaborative, and caring professional who embodies individuality and uniqueness in psychotherapy toward each individual client.
Katie is originally from Alabama, but has called Oxford, MS her home since 2012. Katie earned both her undergraduate degree and master’s degree (M.Ed. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling) at The University of Mississippi. Katie is currently a P-LPC (Provisional Licensed Professional Counselor) in the state of Mississippi.
Katie’s purpose of counseling is to furnish you with the opportunity of exploration of a variety of concerning factors in your life, and then begin to make a variety of changes in order to ultimately improve the life that you lead. In short, counseling with Katie will focus on YOU and on facets of YOUR experience that are concerning to YOU. Katie would like to emphasize that any area that you believe to be a concern to you is always appropriate for exploration during our sessions. Examples of these concerns could include family, social relationships, personal relationships, self-esteem/self-worth, school, career, financial, sexual, spiritual, and any other.
A note from Katie:
My job as a counselor is to help you find the best version of yourself. You know yourself better than anyone- and it is my job to help you find just that. I don’t have all the answers, but it is my goal to act as your guide during your process of self-exploration and self-discovery. I want to help my clients in any way that I can, and I hold this responsibility high and close to my heart. But, along with my responsibility as a counselor, I want my clients to know that know that they, too, hold a personal responsibility as well, which can be described best by 3 of my favorite quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt:
“Nothing has ever been achieved by the person who says, ‘It can’t be done.’”
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
“With the new day comes new strength.”
