Kate Farwell, Psy.D. (COMING SOON)

Are you doing “all the right things” to tend to your mental health, but nothing seems to be working like it should?  Perhaps you’re doing all the self-care and working on yourself, yet you’re still struggling and not feeling as effective in your life as you would like, want, or need. There is hope, and I want to partner with you to uncover those parts of your brain to cast a new light and direction on your journey and care.  

I specialize in working with clients to unpack and untangle the complexities of their minds and brains. I am a licensed psychologist who offers psychological assessments and therapy for tweens, teens, and adults (ages 11-65). Assessments and evaluations are my areas of specialty and especially meaningful to me because they provide data and evidence to support clinical hunches, diagnostic directions, and understanding of your strengths and struggles. Often, a person’s strengths may be “averaging out” or masking their struggles.  I’m passionate about helping teens, adults, and their families understand themselves better through the assessment and therapy processes, and launching forward in their lives equipped with more focused resources and supports for what’s next.

 

My Experience:

I have had the good fortune of providing mental health care to individuals in a variety of settings, including residential treatment, juvenile detention, community mental health, and private practice.  My career has focused on assessment and treatment of clients with high acuity and complexity of symptoms, people who have struggled to find relief from the “tried and true” treatments.  

 

I have also served as adjunct faculty teaching undergraduate and graduate level psychology courses. I have extensive experience supervising doctoral students in clinical practicum, pre-doctoral internship, and post-doctoral residency settings.  Training and teaching are an important part of my clinical practice!

  

My Education:  

I earned my Psy.D. (Doctor of Psychology) degree from Baylor University and hold Masters’ degrees in Clinical Psychology and Educational Psychology. I am a licensed psychologist in Texas, in the process of licensure in Georgia, and am a member of the PsyPact compact.  

On going education and training have been integral parts of my professional practice.  I have obtained training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT), complex trauma, and executive functioning interventions. I consider myself a lifelong learner in neuroscience, executive functioning, mind-body mental and physical health, interdisciplinary medicine and treatments, and innovative mental health interventions.  

 

What to Expect From Me:

I have a warm, authentic, straightforward style, and I’m curious, relationally oriented, and empathic. You matter, and it is important that our work together leaves you feeling heard, understood, and witnessed.  

I am currently offering comprehensive and focused psychological assessments/evaluations, individual therapy, and consultations for individuals ages 11-65, in addition to graduate supervision.  I also enjoy conducting trainings, presentations, and workshops with fellow clinicians, students, and interdisciplinary providers.  

I specialize in working with individuals who have tried conventional treatments, medication, supplements, and pop psychology coping skills, and continue to struggle with the less-than-ideal benefits.  At the heart of it all, I’m a scientist, andI would love to partner with you to understand your brain, mind and body, logic and emotions, and collaborate toward meeting your mind and providing direction and support for your psychological journey!
