About Katharine Pumphrey Knapp

I enjoy working with families, and individuals seeking help regulating their emotions due to complex trauma or developmental trauma.  I also assist families and adults with managing anxiety and mood regulation. I include parents in the process of supporting children and teens, offering strategies and educational support. I am creative, developing curiousity through the added use of Psychodrama, Sand Tray and Play therapy, Art therapy, Guided Imagery and Music, and Emotional Focused Couples therapy.  I believe that "seeing" a client's needs through the lens of "nervous system regulation" empowers us with creative possibilities and orients us to positive expectations for outcomes.  Labeling mental illness and addressing it with only "talk therapy" misses the added benefit of intergrating the Body sensations, Emotional feelings, Internal imagery, Beliefs driving our thoughts and how these work together. I enjoy helping clients understand the process of repair and integration.  

I have over 30 years of working with families and adults in various capacities as a Waldorf Teacher, Special Ed teacher, Artist, Dancer, Counselor, Author, Community Leader, and Spiritual Director.  It is my pleasure to add Somatic Experiencing not only as one modality, but as a lens through which all my work filters.  The body has a remarkable capacity to heal.  As we build a greater capacity to connect to ourselves in meanful ways, we will experience that return to wholeness.
