Katie Blasko is a therapist-in-training in the Marriage and Family Therapy master’s program at East Carolina University. She earned a Master of Science in Clinical Health Psychology from University of Michigan—Dearborn and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Cornell College. Katie has limited licensure as a Clinical Health Psychologist in Michigan and worked in primary care for over four years. Originally from Michigan, Katie is excited to help clients in the Raleigh area at Family Solutions & Wellness Center.
Katie is passionate about helping couples and families develop satisfying relationships, overcome life’s challenges, and grow into their best selves. Katie uses Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), family systems theory, and a collaborative approach to help clients make lasting changes in their lives. She has completed Gottman level one training for treating couples’ issues and is becoming trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for treating trauma. Katie believes that humans are social beings designed for connection, yet damage to our sense of safety, belonging, or control can prevent us from having the relationships we seek. In therapy, clients can develop healthier ways of relating through identifying unhelpful interpersonal patterns they may be stuck in, expressing their emotions and needs, and connecting more authentically with themselves and others.
Katie enjoys working with those who are trying to manage relationship distress, family difficulties, life transitions, communication, depression, anxiety, sexual concerns, trauma, medical issues, grief/loss, LGBTQ-specific concerns, and overall trouble achieving their goals in life. With a calm, nonjudgmental, and empathic presence, Katie strives to create a safe haven for clients to work through the chaos that life, relationships, and mental health can create.
Katie is an intern and cannot accept insurance. Katie offers a sliding fee scale starting at $20/hour. All intakes are a standard $20 regardless of income level.
