Change is hard. Whether that change is forced upon us by life, or something we yearn for and pursue, it is often accompanied by frustration, challenge, and grief. Katie believes that her job, as your counselor, is to provide you the safety, encouragement and resources, that will support you in enacting change in the ways you determine will best help you reach your goals and live in alignment with your values. 

Katie found her way to the counseling profession after a successful career in corporate sales and marketing. After benefitting immensely from her own experiences as a client, she felt a tug to pursue a career where she could support others on their journey towards growth and wellbeing as she had been supported. 

Katie received both her bachelor’s degree and master’s in business administration from the University of Florida and is currently completing her master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Rollins College. 

In addition to counseling, Katie loves teaching yoga, group fitness, and facilitating a series of workshops co-developed with a colleague aimed at providing women an opportunity to build community while exploring cultural messages and finding their power through yoga, meditation, self-inquiry and discussion. 

In her leisure time, she enjoys practicing yoga, painting, kayaking on central Florida’s many beautiful rivers and lakes, and hosting dinner and game nights with friends and family.
