Individual Therapy

“You deserve your dreams. Who else could they possibly belong to more than you.”
– Cleo Wade

Why Individual Therapy

The same areas of our brain become activated when we experience emotional pain as when we experience physical pain. However, how you find healing from them is much different.  I want you to know the emotional ache in your heart is real- and if effects how you engage with yourself and the world. However, often when we feel emotions that we don’t like- we try to push them away- we numb, we ignore, we distract.

During the individual therapy process you will learn how your feelings are actually tools to guide you on a path of what you need. You weren’t made to carry the mountain you are holding right now- you were made to climb it- connect with Kathryn today, let go of your emotional burdens and start the journey to the top of your mountain.

Do you really think God made you- uniquely wonderfully you- and wanted you to deny your true self because it might be off putting to others? I can’t believe that is true.

Eating Disorders & Body Image

Kathryn specializes in treating all types of eating disorders including anorexia-nervosa, bulimia-nervosa, orthorexia, binge eating disorder, and compulsive exercise. Kathryn has worked in both residential and outpatient settings and plays an active role in the Nashville fitness community which gives her clients a unique experience in working through their disorders.

Trauma

At Three Cords Therapy we define trauma as, “anything less than nurturing.” Trauma of any kind can create narratives in our head that tell us we cannot live the fulfilling lives we once imagined and thus we gravitate toward solutions that leave us more isolated and broken. Kathryn uses an attachment focused trauma lens to help clients find power in rewriting their story on their own terms.

Addictions

Kathryn has extensive experience working with individuals and friends/family members of those struggling with  substance and process addictions. She helps individuals create a safe environment to explore what comes up when they stop self medicating and pushing away connection to self, God, and others.
