Some of the most visited pages on katlove.com were not blog posts but two resources that I built.
One is the Psychotherapy Blog Post Idea Generator that allows you to generate over 30 blog post ideas for your therapy practice blog:

I had the awesome opportunity to be interviewed about website topics in a couple podcasts and a video in 2016. I also wrote, or was featured in, a few guest blog posts.
Was interviewed on Jennifer Sneeden’s podcast on how to create a psychotherapy website that attracts your ideal client.

In 2015, I made huge strides with going public as a sexual abuse survivor. My website’s about page was the very first place I ever released the information publicly. Even though I cried when I hit that publish button, I was ready to do it.
After a lot of positive support, I decided to take another step forward, and wrote an article for mind body green on being angry as a sexual abuse survivor also back in 2015.
This year, I opened up more about my sexual abuse story and how healing with therapists helped me choose to make websites for therapists. I wrote about it in Nikki Groom’s blog and spoke about it in John Harrison’s True Calling Project podcast.
Healing from my trauma is ongoing life work but I’m in a better place today than I ever have been before. Part of that is also being seen and heard by you. So thank you, deeply, for seeing and hearing me.
Also part of my personal 2016 journey, discovering my gender identity. Shout out to Dr. Abi Weissman for inviting me to write and post my story and allowing that piece of my life’s journey to be seen and heard too.
