Katherine Mahan, LPC
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor who's also a real human being.
I specialize in work with young adults (18-40) addressing an array of concerns, including adjustment difficulties, interpersonal and/or romantic relationship issues, grief, gender and sexuality concerns, depression, anxiety, and other challenges common to emerging adulthood.
I am a licensed professional counselor with nearly a decade of post-graduate clinical experience. I’m also a human being who’s living in this beautiful, challenging world, just like you. My strengths as a clinician include forging strong relationships with my clients and providing them with various resources to help them better understand themselves and the world.
My favorite clients are asking tough questions about themselves and their world, seeking to find meaning, joy, and growth. Maybe you're seeking some support through a transitional phase, getting ready to finish college, learning to “adult,” or preparing for marriage or parenthood. If you are looking for a warm and collaborative space to process your emotions and maybe get some podcast recommendations along the way, we might be a good fit.
Oh, and if the phrase “Highly Sensitive Person” means something to you (or feels like it should), I’ve got you.
I tailor my therapeutic approach to your individual needs, grounding the use of techniques in feminist and relational-cultural theories. My goal is to create a space in which you feel safe, accepted, and empowered to sustain positive and fulfilling relationships with yourself and others.
After receiving my undergraduate degrees in psychology and gender studies at the University of Virginia, I obtained my master’s degrees in psychological counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University. I completed my internship at Drew University’s Counseling and Psychological Services in Madison, New Jersey.
I spent three years working in the Student Counseling Service at Texas A&M University before relocating to my home state of Virginia. Currently, I am practicing at the University of Richmond’s Counseling and Psychological Services.
