About Kathleen Monforton, LCSW

Kathleen Monforton, LCSW, creates a safe and judgement free space to receive the support you need to live the life you desire. She provides therapy to adolescents and adults struggling with substance use, life adjustments, stress management, and is especially skilled at treating:

Intervention for Suicidal Ideation: Kathleen knows how low your mental health can get when facing serious issues. You are not alone. Kathleen can help you recover during dark times.

Major Mood Disorders: Major depression, bipolar disorder, and even substance-induced mood disorders can cause chaos in your life. You may feel as though you have lost control, but Kathleen is here to give it back to you by providing a safe place to explore your emotions.

Anxiety: Anxiety is a common mental health concern, but every person is different in their road to treatment. Worry and panic are not the only symptoms you may be experiencing, and Kathleen can help you sort through your struggles and find relief.

Kathleen uses an eclectic approach to therapy and treats each person as an individual. She uses Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Harm Reduction techniques to put clients on the right path.
