Licensed Professional Counselor

Katie Bender

Katie began her journey as a Counselor and Art Therapist after receiving a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and Art Therapy Psychology from Notre Dame de Namur University in 2015.  She worked at homeless shelters in San Francisco, supporting single adults struggling with anxiety, depression and suicidal ideation, PTSD, substance abuse, schizophrenia, personality disorders, and more.  After moving to Idaho, she worked with troubled teens in a wilderness and adventure therapy program, focusing on behavioral issues including those relating to ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, emotional dysregulation, identity exploration, family conflict, anxiety, depression, and more.

We all communicate and express ourselves in different ways; some thrive with words, others nonverbally, and some a mix of both. As an evidence-based DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy)-certified counselor and Art Therapist, Katie's goal is to foster a trusting, compassionate, and unconditionally accepting connection by meeting you where you thrive.
