Supervised by: Kerry Williamson, MA, LPC-S, LMFT-S, CST

Candice Reece, LPC-Intern
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 and patterns of relating within families. 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, in addition to using Trauma-Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, 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 children (age 5 and up) and 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 and has completed Level 1 and Level 2 training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy to equip her to help 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.

Mary Kate 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.
