Kate Bowen Morse, LMSW
Entering a career in therapy has many different paths. However, I was drawn to the field of social work because of the focus on the whole person – the unique facets and intersections of their lives and the inherent worth and dignity we have as people. I believe people of all ages, regardless of going through long battles with mental health or brief periods of adjustment, can benefit from therapy. Above all, I see it as the process of finding strength, peace, and clarity from within.
I have special interests in working with teens, young adults, women’s issues (pregnancy, postpartum, infertility, loss, etc.), and those facing medical problems. However, I am open to a wide array of issues clients may be dealing with. I practice from a strengths-based perspective and incorporate aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), as well as Reality Therapy. I come from a background in fine arts, having been a published songwriter before pursuing therapy. I still write poetry and songs in my free time, meaning I recognize there are many ways to express emotions. For clients who are interested in aspects of writing and artistic expression as means of therapeutic healing, this can be incorporated. I look forward to walking alongside you (or your child or loved one) on this part of the journey.
