After growing up in the Midwest, Kathleen has called Alaska home most of her adult life. She has also lived in Arizona, Colorado, South Carolina, and overseas. Kathleen has had a myriad of work experience: teaching high school English, French, and psychology; briefing aircrews in the USAF; and working as a mental health therapist in a short-term residential facility, the emergency room, and in private practice.
Kathleen enjoys working with adolescents and adults, couples, and families. She has recently completed Level I and Level II of the Gottman Method Couples Therapy, an Advanced Grief Counseling Certification course and Emotional Eating, Chronic Dieting, Bingeing and Body Image. Previously, she has attended intensives on Mindfulness Cognitive Behavior Therapy as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Kathleen enjoyed raising her family in Anchorage and relishes when her adult sons are in town. She is most content when outside, hiking, kayaking, or gardening.
