Kate has been an incredible support system for me over the last year. Having been in therapy prior to choosing Holding Hope, I see a marked difference in Kate’s approach. Typically, I’ll come to my sessions in a jumble of preoccupying thoughts and anxiety; and somehow within that hour, she helps me parse out the noise and focus on what is actually going on. I feel seen, heard, and most importantly, supported. It never comes from a place of judgement, rather, a place of compassion where I don’t feel so alone.
After a number of external life events introduced a lot of stress into our young relationship, my fiancée and I came to Holding Hope for support. Our therapist, Kate, helped us understand — and disrupt — our negative cycles, challenging us to identify our patterns and prompting us to ask for ourselves how we might change them. Her gift was in making both partners feel understood as individuals, building a foundation of trust from which we were able to do real work on ourselves and our relationship.
