Katie Gallegos, LMHP, MSW

Licensed Mental Health Practitioner
Meet Katie:

My goal as a therapist is to help individuals that are seeking some relief and/or support as they are navigating life’s difficulties in various life stages, transitions and situations. I believe in the power of hopeful and supportive relationship between the therapist and client. I have worked in various capacities and many different populations. I love the sameness of all humans but the profound beauty of diversity. I am not afraid to face hard things with my clients and hold the hope for the client that they are having a difficulty accessing.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Practitioner and Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Master’s degree in Social Work from Denver University with a trauma certification. I have both individual and group therapy experience with complex trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, impulsive behaviors and difficult emotion management. I specialize in working with teens and adults that have experienced one or more traumas with a focus on child physical and sexual abuse or neglect. I am trained in several evidenced based practices; Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI), Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools (CBITS), Dialectal Behavioral therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).
