Kate Elenbaas (She/her/hers)
My name is Kate and I am excited to be part of the Unity Counseling team. I have enjoyed working as a therapist in the Grand Rapids Community for over 15 years. The therapeutic relationship is one that is built on trust and respect. As a woman of long-standing recovery, I have learned over time that the most important relationship we can ever have is the one with ourselves. From this vantage point, we can begin to nourish and grow all others.
One of the most meaningful things a therapist can bring to the sacred space of vulnerability in a session is presence. To be completely in the moment with the client is essential. I value personal growth and work to help each client find their starting point and use a variety of treatment modalities to assist them with where they would like to be.
I specialize in addiction and recovery from alcohol, drugs and food, women’s empowerment, eating disorders, mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and trauma informed care. As a member of the LGBTQ community, I have worked extensively with a variety of issues our LGBTQ family face on a daily basis, including couples counseling. I work primarily with individuals ages 17 and up.
I am passionate about my work and career. If you are ready to take the first step with me and start your journey, please call for an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you.
