Hi, I'm Kate
Kate Sproul, MA, LMHC
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), I seek to provide a warm, honest, and supportive environment for you to share your story and find the wholeness and healing that comes from that process. As a relational counselor, I am guided by the belief that our earliest experiences in relationship with others shape the lens through which we filter future experiences. I seek to promote the understanding of this process, and how it continues to influence beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors.
I practice with a holistic style of therapy, recognizing that physical, emotional, and relational health are interconnected. This means that when one part of you begins to suffer, the other parts are affected as well. In order to better understand your current experience and what brings you to therapy, we must look at your whole self: thoughts, behavior, and relationships.
Prior to starting my practice, I had the privilege of serving individuals, families, and groups in therapeutic and support settings. I have experience with a variety of populations who have been impacted by depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, grief, trauma, relationship challenges, reproductive concerns, and life transitions.
I was raised in Puyallup, Washington and now reside in Mill Creek with my family. My favorite part of any day is watching my kids explore the world around them... and it's a bonus if I get to drink my coffee while it is still hot.
