Kathryn Hagen, M.A.

Kathryn earned her M.A. in Clinical Practices from the University of Hartford and a B.A. in Psychology from Siena College. She has interests in both childhood assessment and therapy. Her main goal as a therapist is to create a non-judgmental, empathetic and nurturing environment for her clients to thoughtfully explore any presenting problems. Additionally, she utilizes primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques while also drawing from both Attachment Theory and Interpersonal Psychotherapy. During her training, she worked with diverse clients in a variety of settings ranging from specialized outpatient clinics to inpatient treatment centers. Additionally, she has experience working with individuals affected by trauma, serious mental illness, substance use, neurological disorders (such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), behavioral disorders (such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder), and self-injury. The majority of her experience was spent working with children and adolescents, but she is passionate about helping clients across the lifespan.
