- Schedule with Kathleen
Hi, I’m Kathleen. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, personal growth therapist, dating coach, premarital counselor, and life coach who is passionate about helping others build strong self-esteem, realize their best selves, and live more intentional, meaningful lives.
I provide a nonjudgmental, productive space where you will feel safe, comfortable, and understood. I use only the most effective, best-researched strategies to ensure that our work together will allow you to create lasting, positive change in yourself and in your relationships.
Individual Therapy and Life Coaching
I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and a solution-focused orientation when working with therapy clients; I also draw on techniques from these models when working with coaching clients.This means I provide a warm and supportive working relationship, while also competently guiding you in processing and managing difficult feelings and overcoming self-limiting beliefs, as well as helping you discover new solutions to old problems.
We’ll work together to explore the thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and old patterns that are holding you back. Then I’ll help you build a more fulfilling future by cultivating the new, empowering thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that will help you move forward and create the life you want. If we work together in a therapeutic context, we can use this approach to address mild mental health symptoms you might be experiencing.
If we work together in a coaching capacity, I will draw on similar techniques to help you achieve your personal growth goals. We will target specific thoughts and behaviors that no longer serve you and identify strategies to propel you toward creating long lasting and meaningful change. Together, we will identify if coaching or counseling is right for you. I am able to provide counseling services to clients located in the state of Colorado and coaching to clients located anywhere in the U.S. and internationally.
Learn more about the differences between therapy and coaching, and which approach is right for you.
Couples Counseling and Relationship Coaching
Helping individuals in attaining the loving relationships they yearn for and deserve is particularly meaningful to me. Whether serving you as a therapist, group therapist, life coach, or dating coach, the quality of your relationships is a priority. I draw from the evidence-based approaches of CBT, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Attachment Theory.
We will work together to help you find more confidence and security and learn the nuts-and-bolts communication tools, assertiveness strategies, and boundary setting skills that will help you navigate relationship challenges effectively, resolve conflicts productively, and find more fulfilling connection and intimacy.
Body Positivity Coaching
I’m also passionate about helping clients feel better about themselves — and their bodies — through self-esteem and body-positivity coaching. With evidence-based approaches and the principles of intuitive eating and intuitive self-care, I help clients feel more empowered and at peace in their bodies and in their relationships with food.
I have a master’s of education in counselor education from the University of New Orleans and experience helping adolescents, young adults, adults, couples, and families with issues including depression, anxiety, stress, codependency, body image, boundaries, anger management, low self-esteem, trauma, life transition, boredom, family conflict, communication, assertiveness, shame and guilt, self-care, and creating healthy relationships. With my experience, I can help you on many different levels, and I look forward to the opportunity to do so.
