Today’s Guest: Katie Curran, MA, LMHCA, is a licensed mental health counseling associate located in Spokane, WA. She specializes in working with young adults, artists, grief, witchy folks, and identity/purpose struggles. She utilizes art, ritual, normalization, and alternative approaches to meet individuals where they’re at, recognizing that counseling is definitely not “one size fits all.”
