Katie Fayle

Native Texan and world-renowned researcher Brené Brown teaches courage appears as a person allowing themselves to be fully seen. My passion for helping others stems from the beauty I see when a person or couple extends themselves to another in the purest form of courage often seen in counseling. I have been on the other side of the therapist’s chair and understand the true strength it can take to show up and be seen.

My fuel to see others become free from past traumas or negative experiences is ignited by allowing them to flourish. Healing is best achieved through personalized treatment approaches in a safe space created for each client to develop the knowledge of their most authentic self.

From a secure base, suffering from anxiety, depression, betrayal, and relational conflict can be bravely conquered through a therapeutic relationship between the counselor and client.

A graduate student gaining clinical experience, Mrs. Fayle collaborates with our team under the supervision of Liberty University, Sonya Heckler Cheyne, PhD, LPC-S, NCC, and Kristin Witte-Hubbard, M.Ed., LPC.
