Welcome to my website!

You are taking an important step forward for yourself and your family. At Kathryn Clayton Counseling you will experience a caring, strengths-based approach tailored specifically to your unique needs. My focus is to honor the resilience and strengths you and/or your child, or your loved ones already possess, and work together to create real and lasting change.
