Radical Acceptance, Radical Authenticity
My name is Kate Stewart, and I’m a psychotherapist and dating coach practicing in Seattle, Washington. I work with adults, children, couples and families.
Hello there! Thank you for visiting my website. I’m excited to tell you more about my practice, because the work that I do is the most rewarding part of my life. I enjoy working with people who are making a transition in their lives, sometimes this transition is the ending or beginning of a relationship, moving to a new city, or finding a better job. I like to see transitions as opportunities for people to fulfill personal greatness; although they can be very difficult, but they are also opportunities for growth.
One of my specializations is helping people date. What does this mean? I help people do the work necessary to start a great relationship, from helping people flirt, to preparing themselves for the relationship, to tools for finding “the one”. On the other side, I also guide people through the feelings of grief, loss, and sometimes anger that accompany a break up. I also work with people who have alternative sexual or gender identities. I am a poly friendly and kink friendly therapist, and also welcome sex workers in my practice.
I see a lot of creative people in my practice: musicians, artists and designers. I think this is because I am an artist myself; I understand the creative process and I also understand how being a creative or artistic person can make you feel very different from “the norm.” But the great thing is, what makes us different makes us beautiful; I aim to bring the message of acceptance and support to everyone who walks in my door. My other focuses are Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and trauma recovery, grief and loss, end of life therapy, and helping people reconnect with their creative selves.
I offer free fifty minute consultations to potential clients, if you aren’t sure if you want to pursue therapy or dating coaching and want to give it a try, or don’t know what to look for, or need help figuring out where to look. I’m thankful for the opportunity to help, so send me an email or call if you would like to set up your appointment.
My favorite part of my job is being with people when they make some of the most important changes in their lives. Helping bring humor, acceptance, and love into my clients lives is incredibly rewarding!
