Kate McReynolds


Hi! My name is Kate and I'm so glad you found me.


I'm the owner of Root To Rise Counseling, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and a mom of two. I'm Perinatal Mental Health-Certified, specializing in therapy for prenatal and postpartum support, birth trauma, pregnancy loss, PMADs (Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders), and general maternal wellness.


I also manage @The.Mom.Therapist on Instagram, where I share content related to perinatal mental health and supportive mom humor.

I work to support the mother during every experience – pregnancy, loss, labor and delivery, the postpartum period, and beyond. Whether you're a first-time mom or a fourth-time mom, an infertility warrior or a grieving mother, I am here for you.


You have what it takes, mama, but you don't have to do it alone.

How I Can Help

I am committed to helping you navigate life in the throes of motherhood by providing compassionate and effective care rooted in evidenced-based practices such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

CBT can help to:

Identify and restructure unhelpful thought patterns

Improve emotional awareness and mood regulation

Create healthier behaviors and responses

Learn healthy and effective coping skills

EMDR can help to:

Reduce intensity and frequency of trauma-related issues

Resolve unprocessed traumatic experiences or memories

Address and reprocess negative beliefs about the self

Alleviate disturbances from trauma-related stressors
