Katie believes that everyone deserves to be treated as an individual, and therefore caters her integrated approach to suit the needs of each person. Counseling is far from being something shameful or for the "weak," but rather an opportunity for a person to gain insight and perspective on the obstacles they are experiencing in their lives. This can be achieved by identifying one's goals and recognizing their strengths. Katie advocates for achieving maximum health through wellness in the mind and body together. Counseling should be client-directed so that the individual gains empowerment and a sense of control over their treatment.
