Picture of self, Kate Mageau

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am a domestic violence and intimate partner violence survivor. After I experienced abuse, I attended a support group at a domestic violence advocacy agency and learned about the cycle of abuse. I also saw a mental health counselor who taught me more about abuse and how to heal from it. Five years later, in 2019, I returned to the same agency and volunteered my time to co-facilitate the same support group for over 2 years, where I continued to learn even more about the abuse.

In December 2022, I will finish my Master’s of Science in Counseling Education, specializing in Mental Health Counseling, where I have learned further more about abuse and domestic violence. And if you think that isn’t enough, I am also in an internship at an agency that specializes in helping domestic violence survivors heal from abuse, where I — you guessed it —learn even more about abuse. As a counselor and coach, I continue helping domestic violence and intimate partner violence survivors as a mental health counselor. I also specialize in helping people with depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as helping people cope from trauma. I work with adolescents and adults, through individual counseling and support groups. 

I also enjoy my life and spend time not thinking about abuse! I enjoy kayaking, reading, writing, painting, traveling, cooking, gardening, and spending time with those I love – my family, my friends, my wonderful and supportive boyfriend who is nothing like my ex, and my cat, Penelope. I am currently based in Miami, and in January 2023 I will be based in Seattle, WA. As of now, all services will be provided via telehealth.
