Katie Dawson is a Licensed Professional Counselor in DC, MD and VA. Katie enjoys working with clients facing challenges with relationships, anxiety, depression, ADHD, and general feelings of discomfort associated with adjusting to the ever-expanding expectations of today’s world. With an array of television, movie, and occasionally video game references to choose from, Katie provides a conversational and friendly processing space for clients to feel relaxed and supported as they share their stories.
In her practice, Katie is known for her eclectic, creative, and informed approach to therapy. She draws from a range of techniques, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Imago Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
