Katherine in Three Words: Patient, Perceptive, Passionate
“You might be poor, your shoes might be broken, but your mind is a palace”- Frank McCourt
Katherine is a Board Certified Physician Assistant in the state of Connecticut. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Springfield College where she completed her clinical training In psychiatry in the inpatient hospital setting. After graduating, Katherine focused her career in community based mental health and addiction treatment. Her knowledge of psychopharmacology stems from over 9 years’ experience treating a wide scope of mental health conditions including mood, anxiety, and substance use disorders throughout the clinic, hospital, and addiction treatment environments.
Katherine is, herself, an ever-learning student of mindfulness and believes strongly in the power of being “still.” She believes that the use of medication, in combination with cognitive therapies like mindfulness, or other types of psychotherapy, can be life changing.
Katherine works with clients who are experiencing both acute and chronic psychiatric conditions. She knows that making decisions about medication can be difficult and her goal is to create an open and safe space for clients to express their hopes, concerns, and fears as they relate to medication treatment.
Katherine lives in East Granby with her husband, daughter, and dog, Pepper. She is navigating life as a new mom and when she is not googling “how to get baby to sleep through the night” she enjoys yoga, decorating her home, Dave Matthews Band concerts, and spending time with family and friends.
