Katie Sanford, LPCC
I'm Katie, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I love being a counselor because I get to be part of the healing process in so many people's lives. I consider it an honor that clients trust me to walk with them through some of the most difficult times in their lives. I have hope for the emotional healing of each and every one of my clients.
I have 11+ years of experience in the field of Professional Clinical Counseling. Much of my experience has been with individuals who have gone through traumatic events, are struggling with anxiety or depression, or have relationship concerns. I have worked extensively with adults, teenagers, and children over 5.
I mainly use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) while providing therapy services. Basically, what that means is, we focus a lot on what you are thinking about yourself, others, and the world around you and relate those thoughts to how you are feeling and what you are doing. Sometimes this involves talking about your past and how it influences your current thinking and sometimes it doesn’t. For true and lasting change, it is helpful to determine what heart issues are going on behind your current concerns, that are causing you to believe things that aren't true. I like using CBT because there is a lot of research showing it works.
