Kathryn Smith | Roswell

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Katie's guiding principle is that we are designed for relationship. When we are disconnected within our body, mind, or spirit, cut off from meaningful relationships with significant others, separated from purpose in our larger community, or spiritually isolated, we miss the wholeness of life that we were intended to enjoy. Therapy can provide a supportive space where people are free to explore areas of disconnection, experience healing and reconnection, and move forward with confidence that while their past has shaped them, it no longer defines them.

Katie works with children, adolescents, and adult women. She is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) who obtained her Master of Social Work from University of Georgia in 2001 and her clinical license in 2003.

Katie uses frameworks of interpersonal neurobiology and attachment theory and evidence-based/informed therapies with her clients. She uses these frameworks to treat anxiety, depression, and emotional and behavioral challenges rooted in various forms of trauma; help people involved in adoption to navigate issues related to attachment, grief and loss, trauma, and identity; counsel women who are navigating life transitions and developing renewed purpose; and provide parents with neurobiologically informed strategies.
