Katie Defer


Licensed Associate Counselor / Neurofeedback Technician 

Welcome and congratulations on taking the first steps toward your goals. I believe that every individual has the ability to change and grow. My role in this process is to provide a helpful, supportive, and facilitative alliance with you. This means that I am ready to meet you where you are, and help you venture to where you want to be! I hope to combine my knowledge of psychology with your personal strengths through the techniques of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), and Mindfulness.

My uniqueness is my curiosity and passion to discover each individual’s motivation and potential. I am a licensed associate counselor and work under supervision of Lexi Meinhold, MC, LPC. Along with these modalities of treatment, I also offer neurofeedback which can help improve brain functioning and alleviate symptoms of various neurological and mental health disorders. Feel free to contact me with any further questions, I hope to hear from you soon!
