Hear from Dr. Katie Godfrey

I have a gift for connecting with people who feel like no one can connect with them and helping them heal from past traumas and painful events into a new, vibrant chapter of life. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am passionate about working with people in relationships who struggle with communication, connection, or conflict resolution.

I greatly appreciate working with LGBTQ+ clients. I am acutely aware of the various issues we face in terms of identity, safety, and living life in a heteronormative culture and the effect on the queer community. My clients value having an accepting space to explore their identity and relationships and feel authentic. I work with teens and adults of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and self-expression. Working with trauma is something I have done my whole career. To provide high-quality trauma-informed work, I have specialized expertise in several areas, including Attachment-Focused EMDR and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy.

In my 20+ years of experience, my clients often tell me they value how genuine I am, how I hold them accountable, and how they can share things with me they have not shared with anyone else. My style combines warmth, acceptance, understanding, and accountability as I support your growth.
