Kate Goemaat-Suarez, MSW, LCSW, LCSW-C

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I joined the Center for Grief and Trauma Therapy because walking alongside those who experience grief and loss has long been a passion of mine.  I specialize in working with parents who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth, newborn loss, and fatal diagnoses during the prenatal period.  I am a Certified Stillbirth Doula and this experience has been invaluable in my practice.  I also love working with older adults and the unique challenges they face in both grieving and mental health diagnoses in our youth-focused culture.  I emphasize empathy and connection in individual, couples, and group counseling.  

As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I provide a supportive environment where clients know they can be themselves.  I have experience providing gender-affirming counseling including coping with the social and family loss that can be associated with gender transition.   

I believe healing begins with the client/therapist relationship and my goal is to provide a warm, safe, and affirming environment where clients can gain the confidence and skills to reach their mental health and life goals.
