About Kate McConnell
Kate McConnell is an associate therapist at Holding Hope Marriage and Family Therapy and has a limited permit in the state of New York. She provides services to individuals, couples and families to help accomplish client goals, ease relational distress and restore a sense of health and well-being.
Kate’s therapeutic approach is holistic and systemic, meaning she sees you not only as an individual, but also as someone who exists in relationship with others and with the environment around you. She focuses on understanding and addressing problems within their most intimate context. Couple and family problems are embedded in relationship patterns, which can become unproductive and perpetuate problems rather than solve them. Kate’s goal is to help you resolve the issues that are problematic in your life while fostering more functional and supportive relationships. Kate’s warm, down-to-earth and non-judgmental demeanor enables her to provide a safe space for you to explore why you’re stuck and what can be done differently.
Kate comes to the Marriage and Family Therapy field from a near decade-long career in corporate America. She holds a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fairfield University, where she provided therapy to individuals, couples and families at the Kathryn P. Koslow Center for Marriage and Family Therapy. Kate has worked with clients from all walks of life, including those struggling with family separation, relationship distress, and other challenging life transitions. She has facilitated specialty groups on a wide range of topics, including parenting, addiction, and trauma. She also takes great pride in helping couples through major life transitions such as getting married, having children, etc. and has a strong passion for helping postpartum mothers.
