Katherine Heines, LMSW

Courtney Stevenson, LCSW-C

All human beings seek happiness and yet sometimes happiness can be difficult to achieve.  Katie Heines views therapy as a collaborative inquiry whose aim is to help clients harness their strengths to meet the challenges which life inevitably presents.  By providing a safe and non-judgmental atmosphere, she encourages clients to explore and experience a broader range of thoughts, feelings, and imaginings and to seek ways to find meaning and richness in their lives. Using an attachment-based approach, Katie also works with clients to have more fulfilling and genuine relationships. Underlying all of her work is the belief that clients have the capacity to heal themselves, given the right guidance.  

Katie works from a variety of theoretical approaches, including psychodynamic, relational, trauma-focused, existential, and mind-body.  She has worked with clients who experience trauma, grief and loss, adjustment problems, relational difficulties, interpersonal violence, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and dissociative disorders.  In her therapeutic work, Katie also draws on her previous experience as dean of students and college professor in an inter-disciplinary curriculum.  She brings warmth, empathy and humor to her interactions with clients.
