Kate Pedersen, LCSW
Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist and Supervisor-in-Training
Kate is a bilingual (Spanish) Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is passionate about helping children, families, and couples navigate challenging transitions. In her graduate studies, Kate specialized in grief and family systems—spending an additional year in divinity school focusing on the dynamics of faith, family, and loss. She began her career as a Support Group Coordinator and Therapist at Brooke’s Place for Grieving Young People. Through experiences studying in a variety of countries in Central America, Kate has also learned much from the Hispanic community about the influence of culture and spirituality on family systems.
