Katie Fields, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Gainesville, FL

About

Hello, my name is Katie and I am a Licensed Mental Health and Marriage and Family Therapist. I specialize in emotional and relational health, particularly helping people feel more secure and at ease with themselves and others. I help improve self-esteem/self-compassion, reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, and heal from emotional and relational trauma.
One of my favorite offerings is helping couples overcome infidelity, a common and misunderstood issue in relationships. I also love helping couples improve their communication, resolve conflict, overcome trust issues, and gain deeper intimacy.
Another of my major contributions is helping adults heal from childhood trauma. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which is an effective and efficient, evidence-based treatment for trauma. I consider it "surgery" for emotional and relational "injuries" that continue to affect the present. ​
Finally, I really enjoy helping people of all ages understand themselves. I grew up curious, wondering, "Why do people do the things they do?" I use an experiential therapy that explores our dynamic inner world in such a way that gives names and roles to the various parts of our personality. Becoming familiar with these parts and their roles reveals a story of your unique development and corresponding magnificence. I find that there is a valid reason for our emotions and behaviors. Often, our lived experience burdens us with developing protective mechanisms that can then inhibit our present and future lives and relationships. This therapy, called Internal Family Systems (IFS), provides a structure to explore one's inner world, understand the roles and relationships among our parts, and offers opportunity to appreciate parts for the roles they took on for our sense of safety and security. We can then free parts of their burdening roles so that they can serve in more fulfilling ways. This is certainly one of my favorite ways of facilitating emotional and relational wellbeing. It is also a wonderful way to improve our relationships with other people as the work we do internally often reflects externally.
Ultimately, I help people attend to their insecurities - such as not feeling good enough, shame, fears, regrets, resentments, insecure attachments, etc. ​Insecurities that I, myself, have felt and had to work through using these approaches.
