About Katy


Kathryn (Katy) Gelinas, LPC

I have worked in the mental health field since 2010. Much of my experience has been helping people who struggle with dual diagnosis (co-occurring mental health and substance use issues). I also enjoy empowering young adults to realize and accomplish their personal goals and work through any past issues preventing forward movement.
