Kaitlyn Peabody, MFT
Kate Peabody, MFT is a marriage and family therapist who specializes in working with adult survivors of child abuse and neglect, trauma, anxiety, life transitions, couples issues, and anger. She believes that while looking to our past cannot change what has already happened, it certainly can guide us in creating a better future. She believes that through creating a therapeutic environment that fosters secure attachment, her clients will be able to grow into their authentic selves in their daily lives. Kate is warm, humorous, and creative in her approach and helps her clients build upon their own personal narrative of their lives to help them have a deeper understanding of their past, present, and future.
Kate got her Bachelor of Science in Biobehavioral Health from Penn State University and her Master in Family Therapy from Thomas Jefferson University. While at Jefferson, she interned at Council for Relationships in the University City Office, working with issues such as anxiety, depression, infidelity, trauma, substance abuse, and grief. She also worked with homeless pregnant women and new mothers in Darby, working with postpartum issues and mother-child bonding. She is trained in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy, but also utilizes Emotion-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Narrative Therapy.
Kate believes that improving personal relationships and understanding recurring themes is imperative for a better understanding, acceptance, and love for themselves. It is her utmost priority to create a safe environment within which clients are empowered to work through painful life experiences and gain the insight and skills they need to heal and thrive.
