Katy Byrne, MFT has been described as a "lightning
rod," being able to assess and treat clients according to
their own needs and strengths, listening deeply to their
wishes and enlisting the client in the plan for improvement or
personal growth. Katy believes that therapy is a team effort, but
her tools and interventions
can offer effective changes for clients.
Counseling is a process that includes
emphasizing your strengths and natural gifts. There are rare
places to work through your issues like this, with this kind
of safety. She also understands deeply the relationship
between eating and relationship needs.
Katy also specializes in eating disorders, having recovered
from one herself
and has done an in-depth study
of coupling, Gottman, Hendricks, Snaarch, Scarf, and many
others. She's interviewed

end, into the light of more fun and closeness.
Katy can give you
