About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor, wife and mother. I believe my training along with my own personal life experience helps me to relate and understand the needs of my clients. As a registered play therapist, who has been trained to use play therapy, and sand tray therapy, I am comfortable working with clients of all ages. When in therapy I will not use a lot of unnecessary jargon, but we will have a real conversation. Together we will set goals, and the client will be given homework to use in between sessions. Often, when my clients leave they will say, “I never thought of it that way.”

I work with: individual counseling, parent counseling, children, adolescent and teenage counseling, play therapy, sand therapy, grief therapy, and EMDR. and skype counseling. The issues I work with are; anxiety or fears, depression, family conflicts, parenting issues, relationship issues, oppositional defiant disorder, grief processing and pre marital counseling.

Testimonials

“Not only does Kate listen, she offers feedback and advice. Kate has shed great light on situations that have brought me down. I have met with other counselors in the past. The others listened, however they offered little or no feedback or comments. As a person with self-esteem issues, this only left me feeling more anxious. I never feel this way with Kate. I know Kate is honest with me. She doesn’t tell me what I want to hear, she tells me what I “need” to hear.”

“My son, Tyler age 9, has been seeing Kate Park for a few months now. She is wonderful with him, and he LOVES going. He had been seeing another therapist, and hated going, so we had to quit; he refused to talk or cooperate. After seeing Kate the first time, he asked, “When am I going back? I want to go every day that I don’t have soccer!” Kate has given him, and us as parents, tools for improvement. He has ADHD, with impulsiveness, anxiety, and sensory issues.”
