Kat Morriss is a Therapist based in North Carolina USA. My areas of speciality include therapeutic practices. This profile is currently unclaimed; please validate the details are current when communicating with the mental health professional.
I subscribe to a relational and attachment-based therapeutic style rooted in modern psychodynamic psychotherapy. My diverse educational and professional background enables me to draw from a variety of evidence-based practices in order to best meet the needs of each individual client and family unit. I provide my clients with warmth, empathy, and unconditional positive regard in order to ensure that they feel listened to and understood. I believe that in most cases the therapeutic relationship itself is the “medicine,” or the primary vehicle for change in therapy. I work in partnership with clients to create a safe, productive space in which they can use guided self-reflection to build insight and organize their thoughts and feelings. When working with couples and families, I primarily act as a facilitator or “holder of the space.” I support family members in contextualizing dysfunctional patterns of behavior, identifying negative interactional cycles, and developing strategies for disrupting these cycles. I do my best to inject humor, hope, and opportunities for growth into each and every therapy session.
