Katherine Jansen-Byrkit, M.P.H., L.P.C.
For many, counseling offers the possibility of making lasting, positive changes in life and in relationships. For others, it offers the realization that by dissolving old patterns of thinking and believing, life is perfect exactly the way it is. Ultimately, it is about helping others live and love as their most conscious self.
For those interested, I provide a powerful mindfulness ritual at the beginning of each session, which can help clients be more present for the session and more connected to themselves throughout the process. My overall approach is direct, interactive and collaborative with a goal of creating greater sense of personal and relational well-being.
Education and Professional Background
After enjoying years of working in the field of Public Health, I experienced an inner stirring....like the wind at the change of a season. What ensued was a process of reflection, curiosity and ultimately trust. It became clear that Public Health was not my final stop and that what was right and true was to follow in the footsteps of my father and become a therapist.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I love bringing the ideals of Public Health together with my work as a counselor, offering to those I serve a holistic approach that includes celebrating diversity in all its forms.
Free 30 Minute Consultation / Engaging Services
I offer a free 30 minute consultation to help you decide if you would like to be doing this important, life changing work together.

My fee is $125.00 per 55 minute counseling session and $160.00 for a 90 minute session. A reduced fee is available for counseling on a limited basis.
Information that you submit to us will be held in the strictest of confidence. Please indicate the best time to contact you, as well as some information about how I can best address your needs.
