Online Therapy in New York and Maryland

Therapy that focuses on the whole you. 

Maybe you are sick of being sick or struggling to adjust to what life looks like with illness. Or maybe you are  wishing you could understand yourself better to grow and be the person you want to be. Or you are noticing that your actions are not aligning with your thoughts or feelings. Or you are finally ready to move forward from stressful past experiences.  

Whether you are having challenges with chronic health conditions, navigating reproductive health issues, working on yourself to parent differently than your parents did, working through past trauma, or something else, I am here to provide understanding and support.

At the core of my role as a therapist is a commitment to empathy, warmth, and authenticity. In therapy you should be able to say everything that is on your mind (there is no such thing as TMI in therapy), laugh, cry, and feel at ease with the person you are trusting to help you.

I believe that creating a non-judgmental space is essential for fostering growth and facilitating positive change.

Feel fulfilled

Live a life that feels authentic and meaningful to you. Therapy should help you feel understood, listened to, and seen while leading to meaningful change. I want to help you feel supported and live the life you want.

Care for yourself

Lasting change comes from lasting compassion for yourself.


Work through what is getting in the way of living the life you want.

My name is Dr. Katie Lawliss (she/her).

I am a licensed clinical psychologist. My approach to therapy is made to fit your unique needs with an emphasis on a therapy experience that feels natural and authentic.

If you feel overwhelmed by navigating chronic health issues, parenting, trauma, or just managing all that life throws at you, you are in the right place.

Telehealth in Maryland and New York

All therapy sessions are conducted through a HIPAA compliant platform so you can conveniently attend therapy from home. Telehealth allows for the flexibility we all need in life- therapy is accessible even on days that you are too exhausted to leave the house, don’t have a babysitter, can’t take a full afternoon off of work, or your dog is looking SO cute and there is no way you can possibly leave them behind.

The beauty of telehealth is that whether you are in Rockville, Bethesda, Frederick, or somewhere else in Maryland, or Plattsburgh, Lake Placid, Saratoga, New York City or elsewhere in New York, we can work together.
