Therapy is an investment of your time and your trust. I created this space to help you learn more about what your experience will be like working with me.
I'm Dr. Katelyn Campbell (she/her), you are welcome to call me Katelyn. I wear numerous hats in my life as a psychologist, professional consultant, professor, supervisor, and a Mom. But most importantly, I absolutely love my primary role as a therapist.
I am a highly dynamic, interactive therapist: I will never silently nod for an hour. If you want my take on something, I'll give it to you. I don't shy away from tough topics and want you to get the most out of our time together.
I make sure you leave each session with a new insight, perspective, or an actionable step to take.
My work is grounded in my personal values in social justice, feminism, body liberation, and equality.
Statement of Beliefs
I am a body-affirming provider and believe no one can determine your health from the outside. This is the foundation of my philosophy in helping my clients reclaim their relationship with food and their bodies. I warmly welcome and support clients in the LGBTQIA+ community and provide affirming care to clients of diverse gender identities. I stand in solidarity with anyone facing oppression or discrimination and want you to know that I will make every effort to ensure I create a safe space to process these concerns.
Therapy creates a roadmap connecting you from where you are to where you want to be.
For most of my clients, they don't come to therapy to just understand themselves better, because they're already (sometimes painfully) self-aware. Instead, they're just stuck.
My work integrates the deep understanding you already have of yourself. Together, we build the path to your destination.
It's hard work, I promise it's worth it.
Briefly about me, I'm a Mom to an energetic toddler, a quirky shih-tzu, and a very judgmental cat. I have lived in seven states (I moved a lot throughout my adolescence!) so I've had to cope with change as a constant. Becoming a psychologist was a long-time goal of mine and is one of my greatest joys. My training took me across numerous settings, a broad range of ages, backgrounds, and client experiences up and down the East Coast.
My clients describe me as quick-witted and radically real. I will join you in laughing at life's absurdities. I will enthusiastically curse the patriarchy with you. Therapy with me is an active and collaborative process. I get right to work and emphasize both depth and action in my approach. I encourage my clients to be fully authentic and welcome their personality, intersecting identities, humor, and opinions into the space. Let's talk about all of it, because I believe it is all relevant.
In my downtime, I love reading non-fiction and doing fiber arts (spinning, knitting, weaving---all of it!) There is rarely an artistic hobby I haven't pursued (and then lost interest in before moving onto my next focus).
