About STWS

Hi! I'm Kathryn List, MSW, LICSW-A, SUDTP, and owner of Saltwater Therapeutic Wellness Services. As a social worker for the past 24 years, I have met many people from all walks of my life. My genuine authentic approach with my patients has always been person-centered. With empathy and compassion, I utilize evidence-based, trauma-informed psychotherapies and behavioral management techniques, to develop self-understanding, coping skills, self regulation, healing and empowerment. 

In a calm and safe environment, I encourage my patients to acquire new coping skills and reframe thoughts/feelings towards complicated life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and therapist alike. All of this can bring life-altering results.
