“Therapy is a profound practice and a privilege I do not take lightly. Each time a new client or couple comes to visit me, I am deeply moved by their bravery and vulnerability.”
– Kate Nesterwitz
I have been studying relationships since I was 18 years old as I began my undergraduate degree in Family Science. I also finished with minors in Couple and Family Therapy and Psychology.
This put me ahead of the game when I earned my Master’s in Couple and Family Therapy at Thomas Jefferson University in downtown Philadelphia. No better place to get a relationship degree than the City of Brotherly Love!
There I was trained by the Council for Relationships, pioneers in the field of relationship therapy and the first agency to ever offer Couples Therapy in the United States in 1932!
I specialized in Sex Therapy to ensure I had the skills to address any and all things that can come up in therapy!
From there, I practiced in-home family therapy in Philadelphia and earned a 3-year long certification in Structural Family Therapy.
I moved to Colorado in 2014 and am licensed to practice as an LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist). Since coming here, I have had extensive specialized training in EMDR and Gottman Method Couples Therapy, pursuing certification in both.
On a personal note, I live in the Highlands enjoying the perks of the city while escaping to the mountains to camp or hike on weekends.
To practice what I preach, I have a rich yoga practice over at Better Buzz Yoga, work out at F45 Highlands, and regularly go on mindfulness walks with my goldens, Pax and Kane. I like to journal most mornings with a cup of coffee.
Like most transplant Coloradans, I spend my time camping, hiking, brewery hopping, and finding any other excuse to sun worship outside.
