Meet The Team

Licensed Professional Counselor

Cathy Holt

I am a licensed professional counselor in Anchorage, AK, and have been working with individuals finding their way through trauma and adversity as a licensed therapist since 2016.

As a trauma therapist, I have noticed a significant increase in eating disorders, self-harming behaviors, anxiety, and depression across all ages over the last several years. The high number of people describing their challenges around self-acceptance, self-confidence, and overall resiliency reflects many people's struggles in our world today. With compassion, experience, and my connection to the team here at Counseling Anchorage, I look forward to working with clients as we create their own unique path that will lead them to a sense of joy and wholeness.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor, Registered Play Therapist, and Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Jade Hartley

I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and former chronic dieter who has discovered an all-foods-fit approach to healthy living. I use an intuitive eating perspective to help guide clients through their healing journey. I apply scientific understanding to help clients achieve meaningful, sustainable behavior changes and meet their goals.

I strive to create a welcoming and inclusive space for clients. I invite them to explore concerns, stress, and shame surrounding health, eating, and body image. I am compassionate and empathetic, and I value my clients' stories. I collaborate with clients to help find core issues, connect the dots, and shine a light on pathways toward personal goals.

I grew up in Anchorage and received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Anchorage, Alaska. I have been married for 18 years and have a 17-year-old daughter and a 2-year-old son. I am passionate about nutrition, female empowerment, and advocating for others. I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, listening to music, watching TV, and reading.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Kathleen Heiskell

My framework for successful healing consists of my passions—community, wellness, adventure, and healthy living. I've been able to facilitate positive changes through general counseling and psychotherapy with a body-positive approach.

I began a mission to serve my community in western Montana providing mental health support in 2010. Through planes, trains, and automobiles (and bikes and skis) I've landed in what I consider the most amazing place on planet earth—Anchorage, Alaska. It’s here the breathtaking landscape and surrounding wilderness motivate me to live a meaningful life, and help others do the same.
Before joining Counseling Anchorage, I spent time working as a school therapist on the Flathead Indian Reservation in Polson, Montana, and as a mental health clinician at an emergency department in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho.

Marketing Coordinator

Brian Clow

I’m a prospective 2023 Ph.D. student in Clinical Psychology with a background in English.


I created the Counseling Anchorage website and do what I can to help Counseling Anchorage grow. 

While much of my role is behind the scenes, I also field incoming clients and help with onboarding and scheduling. My goal is to connect people with the services that can best help them attain a more peaceful life.
