Katie is in her late twenties and is a San Francisco Bay Area native who currently commutes from Sacramento as a per diem mental health clinician at a non-profit in Santa Clara County, California. She holds a master’s degree in social work from Sacramento State University and is currently in the process of pursuing her license in clinical social work.
Katie is an outspoken advocate for mental health and recovery. Her areas of interest and passion are: people living with mental health conditions, mothers in recovery from substance use disorders, people in recovery, people who experience homelessness, and college-level TAY.
She is a firm believer in the power of hope and of community, and truly believes that the opposite of addiction is not sobriety, but connection.
When she isn’t working, Katie enjoys writing, reading, serving in church, attending 12-step meetings in her area, photography, cooking, and spending time with her loved ones, including her beloved Leo, a 3 year old corgi who has a love and appreciation for food almost as much as he does his humans.
