Kate Anders LCSW
Kate, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), is both a nurturing and genuine therapist. Her style of therapy is firmly rooted in establishing a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment in which individuals and couples can process their vulnerabilities. Kate’s passion is to empower clients to experience transformation and growth, meaningful and lasting change, and a life of self-understanding and self-acceptance.
She received her undergraduate degree from Pennsylvania State University and her graduate degree from Widener University. Kate gained extensive and invaluable experience through her fieldwork at James E. Van Zandt VA Outpatient Clinic in State College, providing therapy to veterans and their families. During her time at the VA, Kate was trained and certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), a cognitive-behavioral treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). She has also completed 49 hours of training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
In addition to treating trauma, Kate enjoys working with individuals and couples to improve their relationships. Kate believes that we derive meaning in our lives through our connections to others, and she enjoys helping foster respectful, healthy, and fulfilling relationships.
