Ka tie is currently our Outpatient Director and has served Rimrock Trails Treatment Services (RTTS) for two years. She received her bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of Redlands in 2003, and completed a Masters in Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy from the University of LaVerne in 2007.

Katie brings 12 years of experience to RTTS as a clinician and supervisor in the behavioral health field. She managed her own Private Practice in Encinitas, CA, was the Clinical Director for Haven Hills Recovery in Rancho Stanta Fe, CA and held the position of Clinical Mental Health Specialist at the Irvine Unified School District.

Katie shares, "As a clinician I believe in a trauma based approach and am trained to facilitate EMDR and other evidence based trauma modalities. For many years I worked almost exclusively with individuals and families healing from the combination of trauma, eating disorders, and addiction in Southern California. In addition to working with clients, I developed a deep passion for supervision and development of other clinicians looking to do meaningful work in our field and have spent the last few years providing clinical supervision in a variety of treatment settings. Since moving to Bend two years ago, I have worked with the team here at Rimrock to further develop our outpatient treatment services and am thrilled to be expanding those services to better serve our growing communities".

When not at work one can find Katie and her family snowboarding, golfing, camping, hiking, and watching Raiders Football.
