My name is Katherine Schwab, and I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and Early Childhood Mental Health Specialist (ECMH-E®) based in Foxboro, MA. I specialize in working with very young children and their families.
I have a passion for working with neurodivergent children, including those with suspected or confirmed Autism or ADHD as well as those experiencing challenges with social interactions or self-regulation who may not have any particular “diagnosis”. I also enjoy working with young children experiencing anxiety, in particular as manifested by selective mutism, separation anxiety, or anxiety related to medical procedures or medical complexity.
One of my main goals is to also support parents and caregivers as they learn more about the unique ways in which their child interprets and interacts with their world. I view my work as a collaborative process and strive to truly connect with each child and family, creating a safe space for reflection and growth.
I hope you find my website helpful as you consider counseling. If you have questions, please contact me and I’ll do my best to help out.
I am currently booked and do not anticipate having any openings this summer. Please note that when I am accepting new clients, it will be for families with children ages 0-6.
I know how challenging it is to find mental health support for children (or any age!) right now.
I suggest using the William James INTERFACE Referral Service | as an option for finding a clinician who might be a good match for your needs. You are also welcome to contact me to find out additional ideas for resources if you’d like.
