Katie Springfield, Psy.D.
Katie Springfield earned her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Adler University in Chicago, Illinois and is currently completing her Postdoctoral Fellowship. Prior to Genesis Therapy Center, Katie completed her training across multiple clinical settings, including community mental health, juvenile justice, and university counseling. She has worked with people across the lifespan, including children, adolescent, and adults. She has provided individual, couples, and family therapy to individuals presenting with diverse clinical issues. Katie has worked with more severe pathology (e.g. schizophrenia, post traumatic stress disorder, etc.), depression, anxiety, and personality disorders, and those with less severe issues (adjustment issues and situational stressors, etc.). She has also provided care for clients experiencing divorce issues, financial issues, parenting challenges, substance, physical, and sexual abuse, chronic illness, and family of origin issues. Katie’s approach to clinical work is influenced by many schools of thought, including psychodynamic, systems, and emotion-focused. She tends to emphasize contemporary psychoanalytic ideals with particular emphasis on attachment and metallization. Using these approaches, Katie works toward providing effective, sensitive and individualized treatment that fosters insight, growth, and resiliency.
