Mary Kate Sowell, MS, LMFT 

Mary Kate helps individuals, couples, and families as she addresses trauma, anxiety, depression, attachment wounds, problematic behaviors in children, parenting, divorce, blended family issues, sexuality, infidelity, and chronic conflict.

Mary Kate’s Family Systems-based training has shaped her to approach problems in the context of relationships. Consequently, even in her work with individuals, she views things from a systemic perspective, seeing connections between current symptoms and patterns of relating within families and larger systems. In her work with individuals, Mary Kate utilizes Internal Family Systems, a form of therapy that helps clients consider how parts of themselves can work together to adapt to and overcome trauma. When working with teens, Mary Kate involves parents and sometimes entire families in the treatment process.
 While Mary Kate works with individuals and families, she is most passionate about working with couples. She has completed Level 1 and Level 2 training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and is  a certified Facilitator of the Prepare-Enrich program. She helps couples overcome chronic conflict, infidelity, loss of trust, and sexual hurdles that once seemed insurmountable.
 Mary Kate holds an M.S. in Child Development and Family Studies with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) from Purdue University. She is enlivened by her clients’ bravery in choosing to pour into themselves and their relationships by pursuing therapy and considers it an honor and a privilege to be trusted with their most precious stories. It is her greatest joy to walk with them from shame and enslavement to freedom and empowerment.
