Kate Gose Naylor, LMFT-Associate
Friday, August 12, 2016
11:30 AM – 1:00 PM
Kate is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate working as a contract therapist and in private practice since 2012. Kate is a graduate of the Masters in Counseling program at St. Edward’s University, building on her undergrad degree in Bilingual Education from Texas A&M. Before earning her masters, Kate was a teacher in both public and private school settings, which led her to understand the value of a heatthy family system. As a family therapist, Kate’s focus has been on the relationships and systems within which all people function – the source of our deepest traumas and greatest healing. Nature and animal relationships have always been a foundational aspect of Kate’s work, and 3 years ago she began to explore the field of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. For the past 2 years, she has been working intensively under Tim and Bettina Jobe, pioneers in the field of Trauma-Informed Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, and is now certified and a trainer in the model. Kate practiced EAP as a contract therapist and equine professional at Spirit Reins, and now is in private practice and holds individual and couple/family sessions in several locations around Austin, and hopes to add groups and retreats soon. Kate’s work draws from systems theory, interpersonal neurobiology, trauma, attachment, Gottman Couples Therapy, yoga and mindfulness. She specializes in work with families, couples, and individuals focusing on developing skills for healthy relationships with self and others.
