Kate Madden

Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

Confused, anxious, stuck...sound kinda like how you're feeling? Maybe it's hard for you to connect with the people you care about most? Or even with yourself sometimes? I get it. And I get how important it feels to make sense of it—and to work with someone who trusts that you make sense.

My Approach

I work with people who are facing all sorts of challenges: self-esteem, depression, anxiety, gender or sexual identity exploration, relationship struggles, or "stuck-ness." I practice a relational, attachment-based therapy supported by interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, emotion theory, and other techniques appropriate to the needs of my clients. I draw on both my life experiences and on my training in my work. I also recognize that the experiences, strengths, and expertise you bring into our relationship are powerful tools for our work together. Which is a fancy way of saying that I will walk alongside you in your pain, laugh with you in your delight, and gently challenge you in ways that support your self-insight and healing. I use a lot of humor. I mix a lot of metaphors. I will sometimes drop some science. And I have a deep trust in your innate capacity and wisdom.

My Background

I received a Master of Arts in Professional Mental Health Counseling from the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling. Additionally, I have completed Level I trainings in both Eye Motion Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). My experience with interpersonal neurobiology includes a year-long advanced training program in interpersonal neurobiology with Bonnie Badenoch, PhD, LMFT.
