Kate joined the Care to Change team because she believes in the power of combining evidence-based practice with a foundation in faith, and because she has witnessed the life-changing help our team provides.

Her decision to become a therapist is rooted in her lifelong desire to help children develop and strengthen their coping skills so they’re able to improve their relationships and mental health today, and so they’ll become healthy adults down the road. She has a particular love for working with young people because she views them as remarkable. Seeing their creativity, insight, resilience, humor, curiosity, awe, and capacity for growth is a never-ending source of amazement for her.

Kate earned her Master of Social Work from Indiana University and received LSW credentials in both Indiana and Ohio. She and Jeremy are members of Refuge Church in Indianapolis and share their home with a foster son, two dogs, and one delightfully fluffy cat. While all that keeps her busy, in those rare moments of free time you’ll find her reading, writing creatively, hiking, gardening, baking, and singing.
