Katharine Waldron

Doctoral Intern in Psychology


I view therapy as a collaborative, transparent relationship that encourages insight and a mindful approach to everyday life. I work to create a trusting and safe space in order to assist others in developing more self-compassion and ultimately reaching greater peace and harmony. Importantly, my intent is to provide an open and affirming space for each individual.

Katharine (she/her) is a Doctoral Intern in Health Service Psychology at Vanderbilt University’s Counseling Center and is in her final year of doctoral training in Clinical Psychology at the University of Indianapolis. Katharine has worked with diverse client populations at university counseling and private practice settings. She currently provides individual and group therapy, as well as psychological assessment. Katharine is an integrative therapist that utilizes various approaches and techniques, including interpersonal therapy, emotion-focused, CBT, and mindfulness approaches (such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). Her clinical interests include trauma-focused concerns, interpersonal concerns, identity exploration, issues related to family of origin, anxiety disorders, and psychological assessment of ADHD/LD concerns. She is also passionate about prevention and outreach services, particularly as it relates to sexual assault prevention and bystander intervention. When she is not in the office, Katharine stays active while running with her chocolate lab, mountain biking, hiking, and skiing. If she isn’t spending time outdoors or with friends and family, you can find her exploring the shelves of a bookstore.
