Kate Halliday, LCSW

Kate Halliday, LCSW is a psychotherapist based in Ithaca, New York and a member of AEDP Institute Faculty since February. 2020. She has been in private practice since 1998 after a number of years in community human service agencies.

Over the course of a long career, Kate has been influenced and enlivened by a wide variety of experiences and teachers. She began her career as a nursery school and elementary school teacher, and went on to train as a clinical social worker. A writer and a pragmatist, she was initially drawn to Solution Oriented and Narrative therapy. A longing to feel more effective in treating trauma led her to train in EMDR in 2000; and in 2009 she began learning AEDP. Like many in the AEDP community, Kate fell in love with the model from the first moment when she saw Diana Fosha present a videotape, and in the years since Kate has enjoyed every moment of AEDP-related experience.
