About Katie's Practice:
After graduating with my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology I began working at Every Child’s
Hope as a Youth Care Specialist. This experience solidified my passion to help others and
motivated me to gain more knowledge and skills by advancing my education. Prior to returning to graduate school, I worked at SAFE Alternatives at Centerpointe Hospital. My time at SAFE was an invaluable experience during which I was allowed to assist clients struggling with self-injury. Seeing clients transform during their time in treatment will always remain with me and continues to inspire me today. After a year with SAFE, the program was closed and so I began working at McCallum Place for Eating Disorders.
Currently, I am a Masters of Social Work student at Saint Louis University where I am focusing on Clinical Social Work and trauma in young adults and adults. I decided to do my internship at St. Louis DBT because I have seen the usefulness of CBT and I believe DBT can take therapy a step further. DBT gives me a platform to understand clients, meet them where they are, give them the skills to do something different, and overall uncover a life worth living.
