Meet Katie…

Katie Villarreal, Practicum Student

Site Supervisor: Dr. Larry Freeney, PhD, LPC​

Katie is a graduate student at Divine Mercy University, pursuing her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She completed her undergraduate studies in political science at Texas A&M University. Katie has had the joy and privilege of working in youth ministry for the past five years at St. Faustina Catholic Church in Fulshear, TX. She has worked closely with a diverse community of adolescents and their families to promote greater personal and spiritual flourishing. Katie has interests in trauma-informed care, family systems, adolescent counseling, and integrated Catholic anthropology.

Katie’s experience in ministry has continually reinforced her conviction in the goodness of the human person and the redemptive, healing power of God’s love. She hopes to help those she serves enter into a deeper awareness of God’s personal, abiding love for them and to encounter Jesus as the great healer.
