A Bit About Me

Katie McSloy (she/her) is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate in the state of North Carolina. She earned a Master's Degree in Social Work from Winthrop University. Her ideal client is ages 10 and up, with presenting issues such as gender identity and sexuality challenges, relational challenges, childhood and adulthood trauma, grief, anxiety, and depression. Katie has over 7 years of experience working with individuals identifying as LGBTQIA+, and over 2 years of experience working with these individuals in a clinical setting. She also has experience working with students in the public school system. She particularly enjoys working with adolescents and young adults who may be struggling socially and/or academically. 

 

Katie believes in meeting her clients where they are as part of creating a meaningful therapeutic experience. She views clients as the experts in their lives and aims to create a collaborative relationship in which the client is both supported and in charge of their therapy journey. Katie aims to see clients holistically, recognizing that each individual has their own experiences and circumstances that have made them who they are. Katie believes therapy should be a safe, judgment-free zone where clients can be fully themselves, and being there to support each of her clients as unique individuals. Therapy cannot be seen as a “one size fits all” practice, and Katie utilizes strategies from a variety of treatment modalities to meet each client’s needs. 

 

Katie practices from an empowerment framework with the guiding principle that everyone has strengths and can improve their lives given the right resources and opportunities. She is dedicated to being an advocate for her clients and helping clients advocate for themselves to gain needed resources and opportunities to improve their lives.

 

Katie identifies as a queer woman from rural South Carolina, who has become an active advocate for LGBTQIA+ and reproductive rights in her current city of Charlotte, North Carolina. She believes in showing up in therapy authentically, and uses her own experiences to display empathy, advocacy, and humor with her clients.

 

Fun facts: When she isn’t at work, you can find Katie listening to true crime podcasts, reading all genres of books, going to trivia, painting, and hanging out with her five fur children.
