Kate has been working in the mental health field for the past seven years, serving a wide range of populations from seniors experiencing homelessness to foster care and at-risk youth going through the family reunification process. She facilitated the IOP Substance Use Program at the LA LGBT Center and has worked in PHP/IOP settings for co-occurring disorders. After working in community mental health for a number of years, she established the private practice that she has maintained for the past 3 years. Her deepest passion lies in working with adult daughters of mentally ill mothers as well as LGBTQ+ folks navigating faith transitions.

As a Clinical Supervisor at Multi-Concept Recovery, Kate’s main goal is for associate therapists to feel supported and confident in their work with clients. Kate draws primarily from attachment and psychodynamic theory as well as trauma-focused care, and these orientations greatly inform her supervision style. Kate encourages associates therapists to take risks and try new things, knowing that the supervisory relationship is a secure base to return to.
