in Washington State
Video sessions are hosted through the secure client portal via an appointment link that is exclusive to each session. Phone sessions are also available. Manage your schedule and our communication, including session reminders, through the portal, and update your preferences as needed.
Teletherapy offers flexibility which can be helpful to those who have variable schedules, work out of town, or experience a variety of other reasons that make virtual sessions a great fit. Something to keep in mind is that most states require clients to be physically located within the state/s where the therapist holds licensure. I can currently provide services to those located in the state of Washington.
Kathryn Willis, LMHC, LMFT, Clinical Supervisor
Our experiences can sometimes be difficult to navigate alone. Having the opportunity to process thoughts, feelings and situations in one-to-one video sessions can be helpful for overcoming personal struggles. Want to focus on family or relationship therapy primarily, but need individual time to reflect? No problem! Individual sessions can be scheduled in conjunction with other services that are helping you achieve your goals in therapy.
Family and partnerships can be important support networks in life, but can also host some of the most difficult interactions to navigate. Relational sessions are useful for working toward collective goals, and building skills together which will help your relationships thrive. I welcome the many structures possible for fostering togetherness, and whether you are looking to enhance the quality of your relationship, decide on best next steps, or redefine the nature of a partnership, relational sessions are a safe place to grow.
As you pursue your career in the world of mental health, I am excited to support you as an approved supervisor in the state of Washington. Currently, I can provide full clinical supervision for mental health counseling associates, and a portion of the required hours for marriage & family therapy and social work. I look forward to partnering with you to grow your skills and build your confidence in providing helpful services to our community.
Teletherapy creates some limitations to our partnership.
If you are experiencing worries that put you at a higher risk, or if you would benefit from greater access to your therapist, services which allow you and your therapist to meet face-to-face may be a better fit for you. If you are having trouble locating a therapist with face-to-face services, please feel free to reach out for assistance in connecting with local therapists.
Areas for Partnership
I take the standard of competency seriously, and have worked hard to build the skills needed to best support:
Individual & Relational Trauma
Motivation & Executive Functioning
Navigating New Family Dynamics
My primarily modalities are Emotionally Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. I am also skilled in Narrative Therapy and Expressive Therapy among others. I work from a strengths-based, and client-centered approach, with a firm grounding in systems and family systems theories. This means working holistically to help you thrive within the network of your life.

Superbills are detailed receipts of these payments, and are provided to you monthly. Please reach out to your insurance company ahead of time to confirm that they reimburse for out of network services, and to learn their procedures for doing so. If reimbursement is approved, it goes straight from the insurance company to you.
Sliding Scale Options
It's important to me that finances not be a barrier to care. If you are experiencing financial hardships that qualify you for membership through Open Path Collective, please consider enrolling with them to partner with a therapist able to provide care on a sliding scale. My Open Path slots are currently filled. I will keep my website and my Open Path profile updated when I have new openings!
