Kuhlman Psychology and Consulting was established to provide quality therapeutic and evaluation services, aimed at serving clients in high-stress and high-trauma occupations. We have experience working with law enforcement, firefighters, EMS, ER and hospital personnel, media personalities, attorneys, and so forth. We recognize that individuals in these jobs are confronted on an almost daily basis with stressors that often add up to be incredibly traumatic. It can be difficult to find providers that understand the complexities of these jobs, and we strive to fill that gap. Additionally, we provide a number of evaluation services, many also serving public safety and high-stress jobs, such as fitness-for-duty evaluations and disability evaluations. In a similar interest, strive to increase public safety by working with school districts, universities, and corporations on workplace violence prevention and threat assessment. Lastly, we provide a variety of specialized forensic evaluations.

Dr. Katherine (Katie) Kuhlman has expertise in the treatment of PTSD, depression, anxiety, and general life stressors. She has worked since 2014 primarily providing services to first responders and their family members, truly understanding the unique stressors inherent in these occupations. She has presented nationally on wellness issues related to law enforcement, as well as school safety. She served as a subject matter expert on traumatic stress on the Colorado Governor's Expert Emergency Epidemic Response Committee prior to moving to Arizona. Dr. Kuhlman has responded and provided debriefing services to critical incidents including officer-involved shootings, suicides, line-of-duty deaths, and mass shootings. Understanding trauma, keeping schools and workplaces safe, and helping first responders are her true passions. In therapy, her goal is to help you help yourself. The goal is for her clients to eventually manage their own lives, not depend on me, and perform at their optimal level. Katie is trained in Brainspotting, an evolving treatment based on neuroscience for trauma. Katie is warm and non-judgmental while still being honest and direct. She also believes that laughter provides great medicine, and strives to use humor often.
