Katherine Lewis, MS, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
Ms. Lewis received her undergraduate degree in psychology at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA in 2010. She studied a wide range of subjects including lifespan development, abnormal psychology, cognitive processing, and crisis counseling. There, she developed a passion for helping others, especially those struggling to adjust to every day life upon release from jail or prison.
With this new found interest, Ms. Lewis earned her Master’s degree from Walden University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Forensic Therapy. She used this throughout her residency by providing evidence-based therapeutic techniques to the Seriously Mentally Ill population.
Exposure to such intensive cases helped develop strong clinical skills when treating substance abuse, major depression, bipolar I & II, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, anxiety, trauma, and impulse control disorders.
Ms. Lewis has primarily worked in community-based outpatient programs, but has had some exposure with private practice, as well. She has experience working in multiple different roles in the mental health and substance abuse treatment field for over 10 years. Some common therapeutic approaches include ACT, CBT, DBT, MET, person-centered therapy, reality therapy, and existential therapy. She makes every effort to adjust her methodology to the clients’ presenting needs in the moment, in order to provide the best quality of care.
