      Owner: Kathryn List, SWIACL, CDPTC, MSW, PhD Student.

      Kathryn obtained an undergraduate degree in Social Work with a minor in Social Welfare from Northwest Nazarene University in 2003. After receiving her undergraduate degree, she worked in the field of social work with adults and children with substance use disorders, foster care/adoption, adolescent gang members, co-occuring disorders, and adults and children with developmental disabilities including autism spectrum disorder; both in Idaho and California. Kathryn’s experience includes the public school system, private agencies, and advocacy to name a few. In 2010, Kathryn obtained a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from Northwest Nazarene University. During this time, she had the opportunity to work for St. Luke’s Hospital in the Emergency Department. This opportunity gave her a wide range of experience that includes biopsychosocial assessment, psychiatric medical social work assessment/Intake, psychiatric hospital, crisis intervention, substance use disorders, suicide/homicide assessments, child/adult abuse, intimate partner violence, hospice, home care, and psychiatric transfers. Kathryn is currently working in private practice. In this position, she provides Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), collaborates with The Reach Institute to offer therapy for children/adolescents with disruptive behavior disorders, and is a facilitator of Love and Logic classes for parents and educators. Kathryn also sees patients with various psychiatric disorders, PTSD/complex-PTSD, anxiety, depression, grief/bereavement, substance use disorders, addictions, childhood trauma, and many others. Therapeutic Approach
      Personalized Attention for All Your Needs

      As a social worker for the last 22 years, I have met many people from all walks of life. My genuine authentic approach with my patients has always been person-centered. With empathy and compassion, I utilize evidence-based trauma-informed psychotherapies and behavioral management techniques, to develop self-understanding, coping skills, self-regulation, healing, and empowerment. In a calm and safe environment, I encourage my patients to acquire new coping skills and reframe thoughts/feelings towards complicated life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and therapist alike. All of this can bring life-altering results.
