Hello, I'm Kathy Wilson...
I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist working with individuals, couples, and families. I assist clients with communication, coping skills, problem-solving, as well as ways to build trust and strengthen healthy relationships. I focus on intimate relationships to nurture change and development. During personalized therapy sessions, I work to treat and resolve marital problems, conflict between parents and children, and the impact of substance abuse or mental illness. My goal as a therapist is to form a strong alliance and relationship to assist clients through their current difficulties.
