Kate is a Connecticut Licensed Registered Art Therapist, and also a Licensed Professional Counselor who graduated from Albertus Magnus College in 2012 with her Masters in Art Therapy. She has previous experience working in settings with the veteran population, inpatient units, and intensive outpatient settings. Kate also has extensive experience with the geriatric population including in settings like skilled nursing facilities, assisted living, and in-home care that addresses issues including Alzheimer’s and dementia-related disorders. She has also worked extensively with developmentally disabled adults and children. Kate is an excellent support for caregivers experiencing stress related to caring for individuals in their family system.
Kate utilizes a humanistic and client-centered approach, incorporating art in therapy sessions as a way to alleviate the pressure of having to talk about current issues with an individual. Using art as a therapy tool, as an intervention, and as a medium, individuals are able to become more relaxed, and can express themselves in a much different manner, as opposed to traditional talk therapy.
Kate has experience working with individuals who are struggling with addiction, anxiety, stress, trauma, PTSD, depression, loneliness, relationships, OCD, self-care, acquired brain injury, and developmental disabilities.
