Katherine Wikrent is a Practicum/Internship student in the Masters program in Marriage, Relationship, and Family Counseling at Loyola University New Orleans. She earned her Master's degree in Public Policy from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. For the last decade, she has assisted governments in designing better public policies and services, including mental health services. She has lived in several different countries, including Mexico, Spain, and Czech Republic. She speaks fluent English and Spanish.
Katherine believes clients can use counseling to form better relationships, create solutions to problems, increase their sense of purpose and self-esteem, and build mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. She helps clients reach their goals by creating a safe space of unconditional acceptance and support. She works to ensure each client feels heard, understood, and respected by responding with empathy and kindness.
To best support individuals, partners, and families coming from a wide range of backgrounds, she takes a multicultural systems approach. Multicultural counseling enables her to tailor sessions to each client's unique cultural factors like race and ethnicity, gender and sexual identity including LGBTQIA+ identities, and socioeconomic background. Systems-based counseling encourages clients to explore their role as a member of their family, friend groups, and community. For example, a systems view can help families improve their relationships and address specific problems. It can also aid partners in relationship and marriage counseling in working through concerns like arguments, financial issues, and intimacy/sexual problems.
Katherine's goal is to provide clients with high-quality, customized care which helps them work through issues and achieve a sense of peace and well-being. She is honored to support you on your path toward improved mental health.
