Hi, I am Katie Krail, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oregon and North Carolina.
You may meet me at Health Allies as your Intake Therapist. This means I meet with you one time before you see your therapist for the first time. Its my job to welcome you to this practice, to help get the paperwork straight including gathering additional information about what you are experiencing, and to help you feel welcomed and safe here. Insurance has a lot of requirements. My job is to know what those requirements are to help eliminate the financial worries of paying for therapy. I ensure that we meet your insurance requirements so that your sessions are covered by completing an initial information gathering session. I also know all of the therapists on staff and can help match you with the best fit if you don't already have one. By taking on these tasks, I help your therapist focus on doing what they do best. I look forward to meeting you!
I earned my undergraduate degree in sociology and my masters degree in social work from Louisiana State University. The past 10 years I have been lucky enough to work in a variety of different areas within the social work field. My experience varies from working in a hospital setting, to in-home counseling, to more recently in the early intervention program working with children and their families.
I enjoy working with a variety of different ages and life experiences from children struggling with transitions in life, to parents feeling overwhelmed, to anyone feeling like they want to create positive change in their life. My goal as a clinician is to help you figure out what you want from your life and help you find the tools to get there. I utilize different evidence-based interventions depending on the client and what their concerns or goals are. Some of my more commonly used interventions are Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, Person-centered and Strength based approaches.
When I am not working I am enjoying being a mom, wife, and friend. I love getting to the beach when I can or sitting outside reading a good book with my pups.
Areas I enjoy working with include:
● Personal Growth
● Parental Coaching
