Kate Evans is a Licenced Clinical Professional Counselor providing Women's Empowerment and Sex Therapy and EMDR through her work in private practice.
I'm so glad you've found me. It can be hard to reach out for help and support, especially when you're used to being the one who gives that to others. Taking the risk to be vulnerable and face change is scary, but I promise it is worth it - you are worth it.
I believe that every woman deserves to have a safe, confidential and accepting place to focus on and care for herself. Women often focus their energy on taking care of everyone else, which can leave them feeling lost and alone. In therapy I can help you to find balance in your life while learning skills to cope with daily stressors.
I specialize in women's support, providing individual, group and couples therapy for teens and adults. I know that every woman is capable of making choices to find personal fulfillment. I also specialize in Sex Therapy, helping individuals and couples rediscover intimacy and overcome obstacles in this delicate area of life.
My work since recieving my Masters in Professional Counseling has been focused on women of all walks of life. From work in not-for-profit organizations like the YWCA and in a residential facility for girls with behavioral issues to my work in private practice, I have discovered that we all share a core that needs to be validated and supported.
One of my favorite moments as a therapist is when I discover that a client has taken the work that we have done together and shared it with a friend - thereby allowing me to influence a community outside of my office. This expands then into a love of sharing my knowledge to educate other therapists through workshops and public speaking to improve the quality of services available to the therapeutic community.
My approach is one that involves a number of interventions, depending on the individual situation. Some of these approaches may include psycho-education, stress management, communication skills, emotion regulation and relaxation techniques.
Together we can find ways to help you to cast aside those overwhelming and debilitating feelings that can make life feel so difficult. You are a unique and special individual who deserves to take some time to grow. Let me help you to reach that confident and empowered place within yourself.
The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
In each endeavor of my life I found that I was repeatedly drawn to work that put me in a position to work with people and provide support and mentoring to those in need. When I found the counseling profession, I found my joy and keep rediscovering it with each client's success.
"Kate has helped me in so many ways. I don't know what I would have done without her. I love that she is always so supportive of me and is never disappointed — even when I am myself. I really feel that all of the sessions I had with her have helped me conquer my cutting habits, make me feel important and have really helped me to feel that I have a life worth living."
"I can't tell you how fortunate I've been to have found a therapist like Kate. She has done so much to help me look at myself differently — more positive. I feel we've laid down the foundation and I know what I have to do."
"I am no longer taking anxiety meds or mood stabilizers and my doctor finally got me down to one medicine a day! I get Kate's voice in my head when I use a "should" statement or beat myself up. Everything she taught me is really coming in handy. I'm not sure how I would have survived, much less gotten here without someone like Kate to help."
"I finally saw an infertility doctor willing to help me and last year we had our twins! They are the light of our lives. I am so appreciative of all the work Kate did with me, I truly believe working through all my 'issues' helped us get to where we are today."
