Kathryn Messman is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW, who comes to TRU with a wide range of experience in various healthcare and nonprofit settings. She received her undergraduate degree from CU Boulder and her master’s degree in social work with an emphasis on health education and leadership from Metropolitan State University in Denver.
Kathryn is passionate about coming alongside those who are struggling to cope with a significant, life-altering loss. She offers individuals a compassionate listening ear and safe space to process grief symptoms that may feel overwhelming and unrelenting.
She recognizes the uniqueness of grief – that we all grieve at our own pace, in our own way, and in our own time. Kathryn is skilled at meeting clients where they are and gaining an understanding of the significance of their loss and the complexities of their grief. Kathryn’s warm and engaging approach allows clients the space to feel heard, share their story, process the pain that often comes with grief, and gain useful strategies to help move forward and engage in life in new and meaningful ways.
In her free time, Kathryn leads an active lifestyle and is often joined by her husband and sweet black lab to explore the hiking trails along the Front Range. As a recent empty nester, she looks forward to traveling more and visiting her three grown children who all live in cool places out of state.
