Ms. Kathleen Anderson graduated from the University of North Florida in 1993 with a Masters of Education in Counseling and Guidance. She became a Florida Licensed Mental Health Counselor in 1996 and is currently in private practice. Kathleen works with struggling couples in search of the friendship and romance they once shared.
Kathleen has 9 years of experience as a children's therapist, working with children who had been abused in foster care or at risk of out of home placement. Her primary motivation as a marriage counselor is to help couples repair their love and friendship so that hopefully when their children grow up, this difficult phase of their lives will be no more than a faint memory. She wants to stop the cycle of pain and loss that unnecessary divorce brings, especially to children.
Kathleen loves spending time with Little Buddy the office support dog whose pedigree includes 50% yorkie, 25% long hair chiachua and 15%english spaniel. In her spare time, she enjoys RV trips to scenic outdoor places where any number of adventures await including hiking, swimming and delicious outdoor cooking.
