Kate Moody is a Master’s Level Intern at The Refuge Center studying Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Vanderbilt University. Kate first came to Nashville for her undergraduate degree, where she studied Human and Organizational Development at Vanderbilt. After graduation, she spent time in Washington, D.C. working at the creative consultancy of The Atlantic. Though she enjoyed telling brand stories, she found that she was most fulfilled when creating a safe space for her clients to tell their own stories. This led her back to Nashville to explore her longtime interest in psychology and study Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Kate is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and is a member of both the American Counseling Association and Chi Sigma Iota Counseling professional academic honor society.
Kate uses a holistic, integrative approach to mental health to help clients achieve their therapeutic goals.
