Kat Milberger
Self Pay Rate: $99

Kat Milberger, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

Kat Milberger is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a fellow human being! Kat (any pronouns are welcome--they/them, she/her, he/him are all fine!) is committed to embracing life and helping others to work through life’s challenges to rediscover empowerment, joy, and connectedness. Kat understands that we cannot always choose the cards we are dealt; sometimes we deal with fear, loss, rejection, isolation, stress, anxiety, and pain due to personal or societal events that we have no control over. In counseling sessions, Kat can help you unpack, examine, and better understand the weight that you are carrying so that you can let go of things that you don’t need and build the tools to carry the rest with greater ease.

Kat completed their bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Studio Art at the College of William & Mary and their Master of Social Work (MSW) at Virginia Commonwealth University. In Kat’s spare time, they enjoy live music, art and poetry, exploring nature, lifting weights, skating, and working on their camper van.

Kat works through a mindfulness, culturally-affirming, and trauma-informed lens and has a cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and sensorimotor background. They are currently in training for eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) certification. Kat uses dialogue, mind-body work, and creative therapies to help you non-judgmentally explore, be curious about, process, and make changes to your patterns of thinking, feeling, and doing.
