KATIE GILBERTSON

MASTER-LEVEL INTERN THERAPIST

I am a graduate clinician working towards my Master’s Degree in Counseling at Antioch University Seattle. My passion for mental wellness stems from a desire to help individuals struggling with daily life stressors, relationships, trauma, and grief and loss. Main concerns I work with include anxiety, depression, grief process, relationship distress, self-esteem, sexual abuse, and trauma. I offer compassion to individuals who seek support as I know it can be difficult to explore these areas. I also focus on the individual client and how culture and systems shape their identity. My office is an inclusive space for individuals dealing with cultural constraints around issues involving race/ethnicity, gender identity, age, disabilities, and religion.

I work from an attachment theory and solution-focused lens. I believe we yearn for connection with others and when this becomes difficult, other parts of life may feel strained. Through relation with others we gain connection to ourselves which leads to growth and self-awareness. I work collaboratively with my clients to meet their needs and accomplish their goals. Through compassion, safety, and laughter I hope to build a trusting and fruitful therapeutic alliance with my clients.
