More about me

Licensing: LCSW, CTMH
Years in Practice: 5
State: CA

Navigating life can be hard at times, and our problems can seem overwhelming when we are facing them alone. We can be mired down in negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors or caught in repetitive unhealthy coping loop. These can make it difficult to manage our daily lives and relationships. Anxiety, depression, past trauma, addiction and inadequate sleep can further impede our ability to find balance and a sense of peace. My goal is to provide you with a place to be heard and validated with empathy. A place to work through your problems and find solutions or perhaps meet a goal that has seemed out of reach for some time. I have worked as a licensed therapist (LCSW) for the past 5 years in a community setting with adolescents and adults. My approach to counseling takes into account that each client is unique and views their problems and solutions as such. Each client also has unique talents and gifts that should be recognized and highlighted in therapy. I incorporate PCT, CBT, DBT, and Solution Focused Therapy in my practice. I find these therapies are most beneficial with telehealth and 12 week brief therapy. I appreciate motivated clients that are dedicated to making life changes and willing to do the work. Ultimately, a client's progress is predicted by how dedicated they are to doing the work.

Prior to becoming a therapist, I spent 17 years in the social service field working with at-risk populations including: the elderly, homeless, veterans, and individuals with disabilities. My time as a social worker provided me with a broad understanding of the challenges faced by our most vulnerable individuals, and I have a great amount of knowledge on case management services available to those in need.

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 $60 to $90 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.

Kathleen has a very calming and comforting presence, and helped me to reframe my mind around my anxiety completely. She facilitated a massive amount of my personal growth and I appreciate her immensely. I would recommend her whole heartedly.

Kathleen has helped me immensely in our time working together. She offers fantastic counseling, I look forward to our sessions every week. She’s flexible, so accommodating of my busy schedule… not sure how I would’ve gotten through the pandemic without her help.

I’ve only been working with Kathleen a few short months but I have already seen such an improvement in myself. I was always hesitant to speak to a therapist but I’m so grateful I finally found Kathleen. Now I look forward to our weekly appointments and always feel lighter after speaking to her.

Kathleen is a very thoughtful and perceptive counselor. Her approach to treating anxiety and self-esteem has been very pragmatic and even though we have only had a couple of sessions, I feel like I already have a better grasp on my mental health. I really enjoy our sessions and I cannot recommend her enough :)

My experience with Kathleen has been great. She is compassionate and already given me several wise pieces of advice about myself that are unique and helpful. I would highly recommend her to somebody looking for a talk therapist to discuss any number of issues.

Kathleen is extremely caring and empathetic, and this is the first time I've found a counselor who seems to really understand what I'm struggling with. Her manner is gentle and thoughtful, a great boon to someone like me who can be shy when first working with someone.

C.O.·Mar 01, 2021


Kathleen created a safe environment for me to express myself and talk to her since day one. She’s patient and understands my goals and she really makes me feel heard.

L.E.·Feb 05, 2021


Kathleen is great. She’s down to earth and has helped me through a lot of my most recent anxious moments during this stressful pandemic. I know she cares about my best interest and gives sound advice.

Working with Kathleen has been very helpful for me. She's an understanding person whom you can trust not to judge. She really helps me hold myself accountable to my goals while being sympathetic and appreciative of the effort I put in to achieve them.

B.U.·Nov 02, 2020


Kathleen is extremely compassionate, a great listener and gives really great perspective. I appreciate every call with her and truly feel she has been such a positive presence in my life and has helped me to get back in touch with who I am, what is important to me, and how to live my best life.

L.A.·Oct 12, 2020


It has only been a few weeks, and my sessions with Kathy are already helping so much! She is a fantastic listener and really takes the time to help you reach your mental health goals. I was apprehensive about doing online counseling, but I have really enjoyed our video chats, and I feel like I get the same value out of the sessions as I would in person without having to drive anywhere. If you have been on the fence about whether online counseling will really help, just do it!
