About Katy


Kathryn (Katy) Gelinas, she/her, LPC, LMHC

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. 

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