Are you ready for change? Are you experiencing anxiety, relationship strain, or irritability? Or, maybe just feeling stuck? I have a heart for encouraging others to develop a deeper level of personal, social, spiritual and professional growth in their lives. You can find inner peace and experience greater satisfaction in your life and in your relationships.

Hello! My name is Katherine Garity and I’ve been a therapist for almost 15 years in a variety of settings including private practice, large healthcare systems, and schools. I’m glad you found the courage to invest in yourself! It can feel like a big step but one worth taking.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with all ages but now work primarily with adults who struggle with stress, anxiety, anger, interpersonal problems, codependency, parenting challenges, blended families, and career transitions. In addition to my clinical experience, I have extensive experience in Human Resources, so I also enjoy working with those who are in the midst of career struggles, experiencing workplace difficulties, and senior leaders interested in becoming more effective in their role.

In this crazy, fast-paced world it seems that a solution focused approach combined with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) tends to work well. However, there may be times when we need to slow down and peal back the layers to get to the heart of the matter. In the end, my style is empathic, empowering, and directive.

I believe we all have a natural drive to flourish. I understand how overwhelming therapy can be. You may feel that you'll never get "unstuck", but I'll be there every step of the way, holding hope for you, until you find your own strength and inspiration. It would be my privilege to support you as you create changes and experience healing in your life.

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.

I absolutely loved working with Katherine Garity. She really made me feel heard and was so patient and compassionate. She is a wonderful listener with extremely helpful insights backed by her experience and obvious skill as a therapist. Katherine made me feel supported while patiently waiting for me to come to my own conclusions about some very tough decisions in my life. She was encouraging and also realistic. I would recommend Katherine to absolutely anybody and am so grateful to have been able to work with her.

Really enjoying my sessions with Katherine. I was very hesitant in seeking out therapy because "I'm not the therapy type" and I figured i would have a hard time opening up. First session I had with Katherine I felt very comfortable and was able to open right up and the session went by way quicker than I expected. Sessions are productive and discussions lead to plans and action.
