Kathryn Klock-Powell, Ph.D., LMFT, RPT-S
I’ve always wanted to make a difference in the world. When I can help a family recognize the patterns of interaction that are preventing them from living the lives they want or help a child who has been abused to heal, I feel like I am making a difference.
I supervise Counselors, MFTs, and Play Therapists, and I love it. I enjoy the collegial nature of supervision, of providing alternative viewpoints, and of helping new professionals gain the confidence to challenge themselves and their clients in new ways.
I want the professionals I work with to experience that “in-the-flow” sensation of connecting to a human being in a moment of pain and to really be present for another person (think Patch Adams). Sometimes we have to get out of our own heads to do that.
