• Welcome to Rowan Therapy

    Sometimes, it's about where to start.

    How will you talk to this stranger – and why on earth would you?! The thought of sharing just part of your story may feel exhausting.

    I get that – totally. I honor who you are and where you have been even as you try to understand where the heck you are going.  I respect your pace as you balance your willingness to trust me with your uncertainty of how.

    And if you are with a partner(s) or have children or parents to care for, I understand the challenges you face in being multiple identities (or, if you prefer: wearing different hats).

    Having my own lived experiences, I am comfortable with clients who identify "differently" than the majority. I value diversities.

    I work with couples at all stages as well as with individuals (mainly young adults to seniors).

    Am I the right counselor for you? Read more below and/or just contact me and we can chat.

About Kat

I am a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and Masters level therapist working toward a license as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT). I hold degrees from both Wellesley College and Messiah University. For those who are mental health geeks, I prefer a systems approach while following a common factors ideology; translation: I borrow from different theories to find what works best for you. In other words, we work together and I adjust to you.

My goal is to provide a safe place to talk and not be a stranger. I often do 15-minute phone chats before our first session so that you can "pre-meet" me and get that initial edge out of the way. I want to help you to (re)discover your own voice, to understand your reactions, to recover a more daring, loving self – someone who is more and not less. I won't be a stranger for long because I've traveled on similar paths.

​I can journey with you on your recovery however you define it – and I can help you find your voice along the way.
I look forward to hearing from you,

Who do I see?


  • Teenagers & Young Adults (ages 14+)
  • Adults
  • Seniors

  • Any and all genders -- please feel free to give me your preferred name and pronouns

  • Sliding fees to accommodate ALL incomes - contact me for details. I'll work with you.


I specialize in helping couples remember (or learn) how to communicate – the true secret to intimacy, romance, better parenting, and sharing laughter again. Whether you are partnered for months, years, or decades, I can help you talk, listen, understand, respect, and hope. While I will not be your answer book, I can be your guidebook.


But what if you just want to meet with me alone? No partner, S.O.(s), mom, dad, kids, and/or friends. Maybe you just want to sit with your dog/cat/bird/iguana (because we can do that with telehealth appointments!) and we can talk about whatever it is on your mind and you can address whatever and whomever you need to in order to get your path cleared again.

I also work with families, helping them to reconnect when their children and teens are pushing every button in the Parenting Handbook.

I help parents reestablish boundaries with kids who are (get this!) actually craving boundaries. We all work together so that, in time, you can work together without me.
