About Us

The Mathis family established Katie’s Way to provide services that promote social-emotional development, prevent development of mental health challenges, and address social-emotional problems that currently exist. We do this by using evidence-based strategies as well as innovative therapy programs that specialize in serving children and young adults.


If you or a loved one ages 2-26 are struggling with a mental health issue, please know there is tremendous hope.

Katie’s Way was developed to overcome barriers by providing:

  • A non-institutional setting to overcome the stigmatism associated with an institutional model
  • Team-Based Care – psychiatry and therapy professionals all working together
  • All staff are specialty credentialed in child and adolescent psychiatry/therapy
