My relationship with Kate has been life changing and I can honestly say that for the first time in almost 30 years I feel good! I began seeing Kate last year to address entrenched OCD symptoms and from the first visit I knew I had met someone I could finally connect with. Kate’s knowledge in her field allowed us to use a variety of “tools” to uncover and address the deep emotions and fears that were holding me back. I was able to make this difficult journey only because Kate was there to guide and support me with her gentle demeanor and unwavering encouragement. I now look forward to the future and I wouldn’t be able to say that without Kate’s profound impact on my life.
I am a recovered Postpartum Anxiety mom thanks to Kate’s tremendous guidance.
Four months after giving birth to my second child and no prior history, I began to develop severe postpartum anxiety symptoms. I was unraveling ever so quickly at the seams without knowing which way to turn. I had quite a hard time figuring out what was in fact wrong and who treated what seemed like a vast array of symptoms from inability to sleep to paralyzing and unexplainable panic. I randomly came across Kate’s information at my OB’s office and desperately reached out for help. Kate helped walk me through an illness that can shockingly fall upon any mother. Her tremendous experience in treating such an overwhelming issue made me feel like I would not only get through it, but come out an even stronger and better woman on the other side.
…and I have! It’s now been over a year and a half since I got sick. I am blessed to feel emotionally healed and more aware of my strengths thanks to hard work and Kate’s help.
I can’t imagine where I would be right now without Kate. I struggled more than I ever thought I would with the transition to motherhood coupled with ppd and anxiety. Kate was truly a Godsend. It was so easy to talk to her, and she “got it” without pushing any of her own ideas or agendas. Because of her vast amount of experience, she made me feel at ease and she had so many different tools to help me work through my struggles. Thankfully I was already working with Kate when my husband lost his job and we moved. Those were stressful times that I was able to handle with peace and confidence thanks to Kate. I know that if we decide to/and are blessed with more children in the future, Kate will be there to help again.
I have been seeing Kate Ferguson for the past year, and my work with her has made an extremely positive impact on my life. I immediately connected with her warm, conversational approach to therapy. Kate creates a very safe environment in which I feel I can talk openly about issues that I have struggled with throughout my life. I get the sense that she genuinely cares about me and my well-being. She is able to be straight-forward with me, but is always compassionate and encouraging. As a result of my work with Kate, I am now pursuing personal and career goals that I could not imagine tackling a year ago. I cannot recommended Kate highly enough. I have seen other counselors at various times of my life, but Kate Ferguson is by far the best.
