More about me

Licensing: LPC, NCC
Years in Practice: 8

Hello! I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia and Texas with nearly a decade of experience providing individual counseling, largely to the young adult population. My clients work with me to address an array of concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, gender and sexual identity, grief, adjustment difficulties, and other challenges common to emerging adulthood.

People seek counseling during times of difficulty; developing a warm, empowering therapeutic relationship allows people to discover that the courage they need to thrive has been within them all along. By fostering a positive connection, I help my clients gain a deeper understanding of themselves so they can feel stronger because of their experiences.

While I tailor my approach to meet an individual client’s needs, I typically work from a feminist, person-centered perspective utilizing interpersonal process work. Being authentic with my clients allows me to psychoeducate and meet them on an equal level. In my experience, providing resources and creating a genuine relationship allows clients to feel empowered and ready to create and sustain positive and fulfilling relationships with both self and others.

When you work with me, you can expect prompt responses, as well as various additional resources (books, TED talks, podcasts) that can help you better understand your concerns. Wisdom is all around us, if we're listening.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Katie has been great! Been helping me through some traumatic events and how to process and navigate them.

Katie has gotten me through the hardest year of my life. She knows the right things to say and absolutely knows how to help me through really tough times. I can't recommend her enough.

In a very short period of time, Katie has helped to be someone I can talk to about life and the things that trouble me. I never feel judged and know that I can disclose anything to her and get genuine advice or guidance. For my first therapy experience, Katie has been great and I look forward to talking to her and growing into a better person. She is a great communicator and makes this whole experience worth it.

I have really enjoyed messaging with Katie Mahan. In just a couple of weeks I am definitely in a better head space and look forward to receiving her messages. Its very therapeutic to write out your problems, it allows you more time to think about what is going on and its easier to be completely honest. I would definitely recommend her.

Katie is great at understanding what is most important to you and giving you the support and resources you need to figure out how to reach your goals. She is very responsive and checks in on you even if you haven’t had time to respond to her last message. She is extremely personable and having conversations with her feels like you’re speaking with one of your most trusted confidants. She also goes above and beyond with helping you. She has been wonderful to work with!

Katie is amazing! I have learned more from her in a few months than going to traditional therapy for 10 years. I recommend the messaging way of communication. You get answers. Not just someone nodding their head at you. Plus you can go back and reread conversations. You can ask a question any time it pops into your mind. No appointments. No travel time. No office wait. Amazing way to get real help and Katie is outstanding!

Katie listens to me and takes time to respond to my questions with well thought out answers and resources. I really appreciate her guidance! I think her style of conversing is also one that works really well for me and gets me to think more about some important questions, without being judgmental or diminishing of my worries. Would definitely recommend!

K.A.·Jul 29, 2019


Katie is excellent! She is responsive, thoughtful, professional, creative, diligent, and caring. She brings great clinical expertise, along with practical resources and interventions, that combined with her passion and authentic care, offer a manageable pathway for both deep work and practical methods for change and growth. I have always been highly critical of therapists and coaches and I would highly recommend Katie.
