Katie Heiden-Rootes, MA LMFT


Katie believes clients are experts on their own lives and coming to therapy is an act of courage and self-care. Her approach to therapy is to empower and examine the give and take of important relationships within the context of clients' ethnicity, race, gender, and family. Creating personal autonomy and emotional connection are often areas of focus in therapy. However, each client is unique and the goal is to meet clients where they are and in whatever way is most useful to them. Katie has worked with a wide variety of clients including foster care and adoptive families, pre-marital issues, couple conflict and domestic violence, childhood sexual abuse and trauma, and adolescents struggling with mood and behavior disorders. Within the large scope of sexuality, issues related to women, LGBT individuals, and the impact of spirituality/religion are of special interest.

Katie joined Link Therapy and Mediation in July 2013. She received a Master of Art in Counseling Psychology from Bethel University in 2009 and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy from Bethel Seminary in 2010. Currently, she is finishing her dissertation on transracial adoptive parenting and adoption support services for a Ph.D. in Family Therapy from Saint Louis University. Katie is also serving as an adjunct professor at St. Mary's University of Minnesota in their Marriage and Family Therapy Master's program in Minneapolis. She received her LMFT in the state of Missouri in February 2012 and in Minnesota in March 2013. She is currently working on the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists' (AASECT) certification in Sex Therapy and has received specialized training in work with couples and sexuality.
