About Kate

Kate Usaj

NAMASTE ~ I am Kate Usaj, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Supervisor for the past 25 years. I practice Telehealth Therapy in Ohio and also in Florida. My personal journey and professional experiences are broad and deep, to put it mildly. I am a widow, wife, daughter, mother, mother in law, aunt, and grandmother, cousin and friend. I have survived cancer, as well as the deaths of many loved ones and come out on the other side whole, happy and grateful for lessons learned. I am passionate about working with WOMEN of all ages and of all professions who are experiencing emotional distress from difficult life events, past traumas or feeling stuck or powerless. I specialize in working with teachers, school professionals, lawyers, doctors and therapists. I am committed to help you create and manifest the life of your dreams. What you will find in your sessions is a holistic and integrative, mind/body/spirit approach that is warm, comforting, empathetic, non-judgmental and supportive.  You will learn how to be centered and mindful in your day to day life, and experience a safe space to continue the process of healing. Every step has been your path, TRUST yourself.  

I bring to you my 25+ years experience as a practitioner, student and teacher.  I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) practicing since 1995. I graduated from The Mandel School at Case Western Reserve University where I specialized in children, adolescents and families. I am licensed by the Ohio Department of Education as a School Social Worker and bring that unique specialty to my work. I completed an intensive, two year hypnotherapy experiential training and am certified as an Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist, as well as a Reiki practitioner, Breathworker and Child Light Yoga Teacher. I have taught social work graduate classes at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland State University. My passion is facilitating others’ healing journey, leading them to heal and create the life they imagine.
