Katie Idell, MA, NCC
Masters Level Clinician
I recognize the strength and courage it takes to seek support, and I believe this is a sign of your resilience. My aim is to create a collaborative relationship with you that is supportive, compassionate, validating, and connected. One of my highest values as a therapist is to meet you where you are, and to work with you toward increasing emotional safety and support so that you can explore and build awareness. From that increased awareness, more choice and empowerment can be available. I value a gentle, trauma-informed, and culturally sensitive approach, and we will move at your pace.
Influenced by my ongoing training in Gestalt therapy at the Gestalt Training Institute of Philadelphia, as well as my background as a yoga teacher and mindfulness practitioner, I incorporate a somatic and holistic focus into my therapeutic work. When faced with challenges, we can sometimes overlook how our bodies’ underlying nervous system responses can be a barrier to authentic change. Our nervous systems are brilliant in the ways they protect us, and these responses may have helped us survive difficult circumstances earlier in life. However, these adaptations may no longer be working as well as they once did. We will work together to build stabilization, increased safety, and shifts at the nervous system level. In addition to working with the body, I also value “parts work,” where we work to integrate and bring compassion to different aspects of self that may be experiencing conflicting emotions, thoughts, and/or sensations. My overall goal is to assist you in integrating mind, body, emotions, and spirit so you can move toward expressing your most authentic self.
I work with a range of issues, with a specialty in working with highly sensitive people, codependency, childhood emotional neglect, trauma, anxiety, depression, shame, and challenging family relationships.
Specialties/issues/populations: Highly sensitive people, Codependency, Childhood emotional neglect, Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Shame, Difficult family relationships, Relationship issues, Life transitions, Grief, LGBTQIA+, Sleep or insomnia, Spirituality, Stress
Modalities: Gestalt therapy, Attachment-based, Trauma-informed, Compassion-focused, Culturally sensitive, Depth oriented, Emotionally focused, Experiential therapy, Integrative, Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness-based, Somatic/body-based therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Polyvagal theory, Intersectional feminist therapy, Humanistic, Relational, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Coaching, Trauma-sensitive yoga, Compassion-Focused Therapy, Self-Compassion, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
