About Kathryn

Kat McNall is an alumni of the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, with a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology. Her therapeutic focus is on LGBTQIA+ issues, identity development, intersectionality, young adulthood, career, work and burnout, non-traditional relationship structures (including polyamory and blended family structures), and working with artists, as well as anxiety, depression, and complex trauma. Her primary approaches include Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Humanistic/Existential therapy, and Narrative therapy.

Kat brings insight, compassion, and a grounded presence into the room, and believes that empathy and curiosity opens the most doors in a person’s mind. With a trauma-responsive interventions and culturally humble approach, individuals are met where they are at in their life and encouraged to collaborate in the process of establishing goals for treatment.


With a background in theater, Kat embraces creative self expression as a tool for meeting life’s challenges especially in the cases of mindfulness and the processing of traumatic events. By reflecting on internal discoveries, clients are able to see the wide effects of their actions and reactions, and acknowledge the historical origins of challenging circumstances. She believes that self discovery is some of the hardest and most rewarding work a person can do, and is dedicated to maintaining a safe and open space to process emotions, track patterns and behaviors, and develop goals in a collaborative atmosphere.
