Kate McNulty, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Portland
Curiosity and imagination can be our greatest sources of strength when we encounter difficulty in life. I have a down-to-earth approach and provide active, engaged therapy with plenty of feedback. Everyone can benefit from developing their emotional intelligence, and I help you generate possibilities when you have lost perspective. The best help I provide is often through raising thoughtful questions. My training encompasses work with individuals as well as intensive experience with couples. I especially enjoy helping people with relationship improvement and making relationship decisions. I use a systematic approach to these concerns and you can expect results.
I see my job as helping you develop an inner observer: we may work on creating greater awareness of body sensations and emotional states; on expressing confusing feelings more precisely; understanding how thoughts, emotions and behaviors fit together; even diagrams, pictures and whatever it takes to help you move forward.
I am open-minded and accustomed to working with people from varied cultural backgrounds & lifestyles. Certified in Negotiation & Mediation, Certified in Scientifically-Based Couples Therapy through the Gottman Institute in Seattle, also AASECT certified as a Sex Therapist. I enjoy helping with infidelity, couples communication and sexual concerns.
