About Katy


Kathryn (Katy) Gelinas, MA, LPC, LMHC, NCC

I have worked in the mental health field since 2010 in a variety of settings, including residential services for dual diagnosis; community-based homeless outreach; intensive outpatient program services; and outpatient counseling.

I consider it the highest honor to walk together with trauma survivors in their recovery journeys. I see my role as more of a consultant and guide than a healer; I have the privilege of bearing witness and providing support as exceptionally brave humans do their own healing work.
