6 years of experience

Hey lovely humans, I'm Kat (they/them). I'm a Twin Cities based Queer and gender expansive provider. I am a white-bohemian, able bodied provider. I am a sex, kink, bdsm and body positive provider. I own that my lens as a white, able bodied individual impacts how I take up space in the world and the therapy setting. I obtained my Master's of Science in Clinical Social Work from the joint program of University of St. Thomas and St. Catherine University in 2018.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

We will have four tasks to complete: 1. Get to know each other and what brought us to therapy 2. Review consent, safety and expectations for visits (time, cost) 3. Complete initial paperwork/documentation for diagnostic assessment (DA) 4. Establish a plan (may include continuing visits or other recommendations)

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My insight and ability to normalize the human experience are qualities that allow folks be themselves. My curiosity and openness motivates me to establish the best use of my skills when working with folks.

My treatment methods

Gender-affirming therapy

Over the past six years of therapeutic practice, I have been working with transgender, intersex and gender expansive persons ages 4-76 years old. I have worked with over 800 individual persons and their friends, family members, case workers, and partners.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT can help us in lessening our anxieties but learning tools to inturrupt our reoccuring thoughts. We can refer to CBT when we are identifying our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. When can then utilize this knowledge to modify our behavior and change our patterns in order to move towards a less pressure filled life.

Trauma Informed Care

For myself, working within the Trauma Informed Care framework also pulls in Critical Race theory, Feminist theory and Intersectionality theory. Drawing on multiple types of frameworks in order to fit each persons respective needs and ensure safety as a priority is essential to my practice with persons of all ages.

Grief Therapy

Grief is not typically seen as a normalized or accepted concept but rather a taboo. While humans typically relate grief to death or loss, it may also be related to a shift or change in how you experience your daily rhythm: how you present, self identify or your daily habits, patterns, work or relationship dynamics. Grief does not always have to be sad or scary. Grief can be exciting like a new work adventure or a new relationship. Grief is creating space for where we were, where we are and all aspects in between.
