Katie Moran is a Mental Health Counselor and works as a Behavioral Health Consultant (BHC) on our Integrated Behavioral Health team. BHCs at Community Care Physicians are licensed mental health providers and social workers. Many are embedded within our practices working side by side with your doctor and health care team in delivering you the best “whole person” healthcare possible. Katie is a member of the New York Mental Health Counselors Association.
Katie received her bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in child development and family relations at the University of Maine. She earned her master’s degree in counseling and community psychology with a certificate in forensic mental health at Russell Sage College.
Katie has a background working with a diverse population of children, adolescents, and adults in both individual and group settings. She has experience treating PTSD, anxiety, and depression and providing parenting skills for parents and caregivers. Katie has provided therapy primarily to children and adolescents who have experienced trauma, as well as their parents and caregivers. She also worked alongside social services to help connect individuals and their families to mental health services that meet their diverse and unique needs.
Katie became interested in psychology and counseling during undergrad, but it was not until graduate school that she began her research and interest in behavioral health and integrated care. After working with children and their families to address trauma and behavioral concerns, Katie realized how influential and vital integrated behavioral health and a collaborative team can be in treating the person as a “whole.” She loves working with a collaborative and multidisciplinary team. Her favorite part is working with patients, alongside a whole team of practitioners, to ensure that all patients’ needs and wants are met. Katie also enjoys being a part of a field that helps address mental health stigma and barriers that impact those in our communities.
Outside of helping patients, Katie enjoys being outdoors, camping and hiking, and spending time with friends and family.
