Pauline Kattady is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who has a fervor for helping clients through emotional challenges and guiding them towards hope with a stronger sense of self. She believes that human compassion is communicated through respect and authenticity towards the individual in distress.
Pauline earned a double Masters degree in Psychology and began working as a clinician in 2010 with a practice that provided psychological and pharmacological services to the geriatric population. She then pursued a position with a non-profit healthcare organization where she had the privilege of serving the medically underserved population in Indianapolis. It is there that Pauline developed a special place in her heart for serving the poor.
Pauline's specialties are Women's issues, Perinatal Mood and Anxiety disorders, Grief/Bereavement, Christian/Spiritual issues, and Adult Relational issues. She utilizes a psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral approach, tailoring her interventions to what best suits the client's presenting concerns. Of particular interest to Pauline is integrating elements of faith into her practice to serve clients who desire a deeper understanding of self in relation to God and seek to heal through an openness to His grace and compassionate love.
Pauline believes in promoting the dignity of human life at all stages and finds the opportunity to do so not just in her practice but also through facilitating the 'Project Rachel' ministry with the Catholic Archdiocese of Indianapolis. She deals with the intricate area of grief and trauma experienced by both women and men who have undergone painful losses. In honor of Pauline's efforts in this area, she was the recipient of the 'Sanctity of Life' Award from the Archdiocese in 2013.
Each person’s journey in life is different and has its own unique challenges. These challenges can serve as opportunities for personal growth and positive change. Pauline is present to her clients during these trials, and through the vehicle of support and unconditional acceptance facilitates healing and growth.
