Kathryn Wilkins, MA, PLPC

Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor

It takes courage to walk through the door of a counseling office, and my hope is that clients can experience a safe space without being judged, rejected, or criticized. I value the client as a person created by God with dignity and worth. However, the things that go wrong in our lives can make us feel that our worth, beauty, and purpose are tarnished or nonexistent.  

My style of counseling includes establishing a collaborative relationship with the client that is warm, respectful, and mutually open to feedback. I use evidence-based treatments within a Christian framework while focusing on a holistic approach to invite clients toward growth and health. 

I work with a variety of clients, but my areas of focus include anxiety, depression, post-partum issues, self-esteem issues, family/intimate relationships, trauma, and spirituality.  

I earned my BA in English from Covenant College and my MA in Counseling from Reformed Theological Seminary. I recently relocated to Kansas City, MO from Austin, TX, but have also lived in Indonesia, Taiwan, Toronto, Washington DC, Florida, and Georgia, among other places. I have over eight years of ministry and counseling experience. 

I am available for sessions at the Plaza location. If you have questions or would like to set up an appointment, feel free to contact me.
