ABOUT KATHRYN CAMPBELL,
As a young girl with a strong sense of justice and a fierce passion for platforming marginalized voices, it is no surprise that I found myself in a career dedicated to helping others on their journey to wellness. At Rutgers University, I competed as a Big Ten track and field athlete while pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, later completing my Master’s in Social Work. Before entering my social work career, I spent several fun-filled years working with young children.
During graduate school, I worked in acute inpatient psychiatric settings with adult and adolescent populations. After becoming a licensed social worker, I served as a Clinician for Somerset County’s grant-funded intensive outpatient treatment program. Here, I was able to help facilitate wrap-around services for program participants, including individual and group counseling, medication psychoeducation, case management, and advocacy efforts.
In my free time, you will likely find me hiking, hanging out with friends, or cozying up with a book at a local coffee shop.
APPROACH TO THERAPY
I believe a broad understanding of cultural humility and the application of an intersectional lens is the foundation for strong therapeutic relationships. Belonging to a marginalized community impacts how you experience the world, and these factors should be attentively recognized and reflected in treatment.
Having worked in community mental health, I am well-versed in the treatment of depressive, anxiety, bipolar, psychotic, and personality disorders. My early experiences in crisis-stabilization work revealed to me the need for deeper, trauma-informed treatments that integrate and help sustain all dimensions of wellness. I aim to deliver this by implementing a variety of evidence-based modalities, helping you forge a unique path to meet your desired goals.
Whether you are a young child, adolescent, or adult, I seek to tailor treatment to your needs. I enjoy helping adolescent and adult clients become the best version of themselves by utilizing DBT-informed practices such as mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. As for younger children, I am excited to incorporate play therapy techniques into my practice. I love working with clients from all walks of life in all stages of their journey. As a therapist, I strive to provide a safe, nonjudgemental, and empathetic environment where you will pose as your catalyst for growth and healing.
