MSW, Licensed Clinical Social Worker & EMDR Trained Therapist
Meet Our Therapist!
Focusing primarily on relationships, sexuality, and trauma, Kate Double seeks to meet ALL clients where they are. Kate is a fully licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and she has a range of experience in couple’s counseling, sex therapy, trauma work, and mental health treatment. She has a strong focus on issues related to relationship patterns and transitions; improvement in marital satisfaction; affair recovery; trauma; mismatched libido; and sexual pain and dysfunction. Clients with diverse gender expressions and sexual identities are welcomed and embraced.
Starting with the belief that relationships of all types are central to our well-being, Kate partners with her clients to create a warm and safe environment in which to explore patterns that effect current individual and relationship well-being. She believes that the role of therapy is not only to heal past hurts, but also to improve current and future functioning. Kate sees psychotherapy as a joint and dynamic process between therapist and patients.
Kate’s work is informed by attachment theory and pulls from a variety of evidence-based models including Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and the Gottman Method. Mindfulness, solution-focused, and Eriksonian approaches are also incorporated as part of the art of psychotherapy. She has completed training for EMDR and is currently working toward EMDR certification.
Kate is currently working on advanced sex therapy training through the Institute for Sexuality and Enlightenment’s Holistic Sex Therapy Certificate Program in Northampton, MA. Anticipated completion date of June 2021.
Additionally, Kate provides weekly clinical supervision to licensed clinical social work associates (LCSWA).
Kate has a BA from Bard College in New York and an MSW from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
