About Me

Hello, my name is Kathryn Nevin, LCSW, CCTP. I'm so glad you're reaching out for help and that you've taken the steps to get here! I can help you with several issues, such as anxiety, depression, anger, grief and loss, self-harm, and personality disorders. My specialty is trauma therapy. In consultation with you, I match you with the therapy approach that most suits you or that will produce the best results.


FAQs

I once worked with a client for about six months who struggled enormously with troubling trauma symptoms, such as dissociation,flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, and startle reaction. Through doing EMDR together she was able to face her fears and get a great deal of relief and put the trauma "behind her".

Though every person’s situation is unique, I generally approach the counseling process from a Psychodynamic framework to help my clients understand their underlying, subconscious motivations for their actions, both positive and negative.

My first session is a time for me to ask you lots of questions and for you to ask me questions too. I do an "intake" to capture a wide range of information. We also talk about what specific things you would like to work on in therapy, what you're looking to change, and we talk about ways I can assist you with this. I also like to know what you're looking for in a therapist.

My own journey with healing from trauma plays a large role in what drew me to become a therapist. I know the freedom that comes from it and I want to make that same freedom possible for others. What drives me is the knowledge that things can get better for anyone; that with work and encouragement, people can radically improve their lives.

Highlights

    What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

    My style tends to be gentle in nature and you can expect to get some comfort and relief from your symptoms. You will also learn a bit about the neuroscience behind anxiety and trauma and you will learn many techniques to add to your list of coping skills.

    What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

    I typically provide you with some of the neuroscience behind trauma treatment to begin with. I use a body-based approach, targeting those areas of the brain most affected by trauma, especially to prepare you for EMDR, if you choose to do it. Other approaches I use are Psychodynamic, DBT, CBT, Prolonged Exposure, and Parts work (or the Structural Dissociation Model). I also do Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness-based therapy. Again, I'm interested in finding the right approach for you in particular.

    Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

    Some of my strengths are the ability to listen in a nonjudgmental way and to provide you with compassionate care. I'm particularly adept at trauma work and will respect your pace as you go along your path of healing.
