Katie Padgett

Trauma Informed Psychotherapist

As a therapist, Katie deeply values the healing power of a safe therapeutic relationship. She brings compassion and authenticity into her work with clients, and feels honored to walk alongside folks on their healing journey.

Katie utilizes holistic strategies including mindfulness and principles of yoga to promote insight and strengthen the mind-body connection. She keeps an eclectic therapeutic toolbox, including strategies derived from cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and feminist/multicultural therapy. Katie is passionate about identity development and existentialism, inviting clients to explore the impacts of both micro and macro systems on their sense of self and world-view.

Katie supports adults throughout the lifespan who are navigating stress, anxiety, grief and loss, vicarious and generational trauma, and career concerns. She additionally supports folks in recovery, folks supporting loved ones in recovery, religious minorities, LGBTQIA+ folks, allies and advocates, and folks struggling with chronic illness. Katie strives to help all of her clients gain clarity around their core values, empowering them to live values-consistent lives and shed limiting beliefs that no longer serve them. She views each client as the expert of their experience, and herself as a guide encouraging self-discovery and acceptance.

Katie received her Master’s degree in Clinical Professional Counseling from Loyola University Maryland in 2020 and earned her 200 hour yoga teacher training certification in 2022. She is currently working towards her 500 hour yoga teacher training certification and looks forward to integrating these practices into her therapeutic work.
