Kathleen Paine


Licensed Clinical Social Worker (with a BA in psychology and a MA in Social Work)


Kathleen’s Specializations:

Chronic illness
Grief and Loss
Relationship concerns
Life changes
Communication issues
Stress management
Therapeutic Approach
Kathleen has been practicing in the field of mental health for more than 12 years. Her counseling work is informed by a strengths perspective, and the core values of social work practice, which include service, social justice, dignity and worth of a person, importance of human relationships, integrity and competence.

She is an integrative therapist who formulates treatment through the lens of EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy) and is a level two trained clinician. EMDR is an evidenced based psychotherapy that helps an individual to reprocess significant negative life events that can get “stuck” in the form of intrusive thoughts, memories, flashbacks, nightmares and/or physical symptoms such are panic attacks and difficulty sleeping. EMDR can help get people “unstuck” and thus to decrease or eliminate symptoms.
Other approaches She finds great success with include, but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Dialectical Behavior therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Solution Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. She is comfortable working with adults, adolescents and children.

Kathleen joined the Elite Team after being a patient here. She wanted to venture out on her own and thought the atmosphere was perfect for her clients growth and her own professional growth!
