Katie Piura, LCSW-C, LGSW

Therapist

Welcome to my bio! I am Katie Piura and I identify as a Honduran

American/ Latina clinician. I grew up in Honduras and in U.S. My

culture is something I am very proud of and a strength as a clinician

as I can connect with clients of diverse backgrounds and help them

feel understood. I have extensive experience working with diverse

clients.

I look forward to bearing witness to your healing journey. It is an

honor for clients to share their experiences with me. It is important

for me to have a nurturing and empathic relationship with my clients

that shows unconditional positive regard. Meeting my clients where

they are and meeting them at their pace in the therapeutic process

is important in order to foster client empowerment in the

therapeutic process.

I believe that childhood events impact our present and how we

connect to the world around us. I believe that therapy is a great tool

to begin your healing process and it’s never too late to start. I provide

a welcoming and warm therapeutic environment in our sessions and

I believe that a good connection and relationship with your therapist

is vital for the therapeutic work to be effective.

I have 9 years of experience as a clinician. I have extensive experience

working with children and adolescents and their parents. I have

experience providing support and psychoeducation to parents when

their child or children are receiving individual therapy and or have a

mental health diagnosis. I am trained in different child-friendly

interventions, including play therapy, sand tray therapy, expressive

therapies and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

(TF-CBT).

I also have experience working with adults who are dealing with life

transitions or experiencing relationship stressors and or other

external life stressors.

I am trained in treating symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD and

PTSD. I use therapy modalities like Acceptance and Commitment

Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical

Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and I am also a Certified Trauma

Professional (CTP).

In addition to individual and family therapy, I have experience

providing group therapy and leading workshops on mental health in

the community.

Often times clients, come to therapy to learn tools on how to

manage symptoms that are showing up in their life and therefore I

provide a psychoeducational approach to therapy and teach clients

the tools they need.

I look forward to working alongside you towards your healing

journey.
