Kaitlyn Koniuszy, LCSW
Kaitlyn helps teens, young adults emerging into adulthood and adults who are going through life’s many transitions with developing a sense of wellness in their lives. She also provides therapy surrounding issues of adoption and with LGBTQ+ self-exploration, issues related to sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and transition. Kaitlyn believes counseling should be meaningful, progressive, and focused. Events in our lives can often leave us feeling frustrated and tired, cause us to feel lost, or leave us searching for answers. We all struggle at different times in our lives and may face barriers to naturally create the change we are looking for. Counseling can help us to grow, ease our suffering, and create change.
Kaitlyn is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with diverse experience. Her primary interests are working with adolescents and adults, with adopted individuals and families and with the LGBTQ+ community.
In addition to therapy, She has experience providing training to professionals to help build competency and compassion when working with individuals who have experienced trauma, as well as LGBTQ+ individuals and families.
