Katie Kilmartin

Grand Rapids & Virtual

I am dedicated to helping individuals reach their full potential by recognizing and utilizing their unique strengths. My top priority is to listen to my clients' needs and concerns, ensuring that they feel validated and empowered throughout our work together.

I believe that mental and physical health are intertwined, and I use techniques that address both aspects to help my clients achieve their goals. As a trauma-informed therapist, I tailor my approach to meet each client's needs while addressing current issues in their life. My diverse training in various trauma approaches allows me to offer flexible treatment options that are tailored to each individual.

My focus is on empowering my clients to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals, while also recognizing how their past experiences have shaped their present. By specializing in couple and family therapy, I have gained a unique understanding of complex relationship dynamics and how improved communication can lead to more authentic and fulfilling relationships.

I have extensive experience in training professionals on how to effectively work with trauma survivors, and I have helped individuals of all ages and genders heal from sexual assault and domestic violence. While my specialty is in trauma-informed care, I have also worked extensively with general mental health in a variety of settings. My ultimate goal is to help each client overcome their challenges and create the life they want.
