“One small crack does not mean that you are broken, it means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart.”
— Linda Poindexter
Katherine Meek, MA
Since 2013 I have been working with individuals and couples who are experiencing a wide variety of challenges. It has become a passion of mine to strengthen and empower individuals who seek to deepen relationships, build self-esteem, and improve communication. I have supported clients in learning to manage addiction, depression, anxiety, challenges in sex/sexuality, anger,
I have also supported couples in processing affairs, neurodiverse relationships, parenting challenges, and more. I believe that everyone needs and deserves a safe space to be seen and heard; counseling works to create such an environment.
My approach focuses on exploring a client's experience, helping them identify problematic behavior, then work towards a solution. I utilize tools such as in-session exercises, take-home activities, and individual and couples/family sessions to create a holistic plan to improve their overall wellbeing.
I believe in meeting you where you are. My job is to partner with you and guide you to the right solution that will elevate your life. I truly find it an honor to work with the amazing clients that I serve and I look forward to meeting with you too.

Neurodiversity describes the idea that people experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways. These differences can often create challenges with relationships and emotional expression. At times this leaves one's partner feeling isolated and alone.
