Katherine Durrant, DSW, LCSW, is a skilled psychotherapist and the executive director of Whole Wellness Counseling. She earned her doctorate in social work from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and worked in a variety of tribal, government, and private settings. In 2022, Dr. Durrant founded Whole Wellness Counseling to provide comprehensive mental and behavioral health therapy to people of every age and identity. Her business philosophy places purpose, passion, and people – including her professional team, clients, and community – over profit. That’s why Whole Wellness Counseling strives to generously compensate each employee with an above-average salary, unlimited time off, and compassionate clinical support, which allows clinicians to provide the best quality care to clients.
In her approach to evaluation and treatment, Dr. Durrant takes a transdisciplinary, biopsychosocial approach to understanding and addressing mental health. She emphasizes the identification of factors that reinforce moods and behaviors and then implements strategies to encourage positive changes. She has experience working with all ages, identities, and types of problems, though she primarily focuses on treating childhood disorders with whole-family interventions.
When not in the office, Dr. Durrant enjoys spending time with her family, running, gardening, and playing the piano.
