KATIE HAYNES,Ma,lmhca

Hi, i'm katie

A true cheerleader and advocate at heart, I’m committed to always having your highest potential in mind. I’m here to help you heal your relationship with self and others, become captivated by purpose and find your JOY. My truest passion is helping my clients find their voice and unapologetically step into their power. Counseling was not my first career (or even my second), but it is my calling, grown out of my own quest for more fulfillment, authenticity and a deeper understanding of myself and others.

I received my Bachelors of Arts in Humanities from Washington State University, Pullman. I graduated with a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Walla Walla University in College Place, Washington. The education I received from WWU offered an emphasis in counseling diverse populations and a holistic focus, which influenced my view in seeing the person as a whole, mind, body and spirit. I am a Licensed Counselor #MC61145888

In the mental health profession, I have worked as a therapist at Pathways to Change and with Lourdes Health Crisis Services as a Counselor focused on brief solution-focused therapy for adults and adolescents.
I most recently launched a Behavioral Threat Assessment program at the Educational Service District 123, serving 23 regional school districts. As the program coordinator I established a team of community partners (mental health, law enforcement, wrap-around services, crisis responders and more) to help assist and support our K-12 schools when responding to a threat of violence. I am currently serving on the Level 2 Student Threat Assessment Team (STAT) as a trauma-informed mental health provider.

The letters after my name were hard-won, but not the most important piece of our potential journey together. I honor and respect that each person I see has individual strengths and potential as well as the concerns they bring to therapy. I offer a collaborative partnership and a safe space to move comfortably at your own pace, addressing issues as they arise. I strive to assist you in finding and staying connected to your inner wisdom in order to make lasting changes. I believe we all hold the potential to find peace and contentment from within.

Out of office you can find me, most likely in a big hat, in hot pursuit of the latest trendy restaurant in town, out playing with my dog Murphy or in the car singing along to my Spotify playlists way too loud. I’m also learning to golf so if you get behind me on the course, “shanks” for your patience.
