Mary Kathryn Oliver
is an intern currently working towards her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Trevecca Nazarene University. She has a heart for all types of people, but specifically loves working with children, adolescents, and their families. She has loved getting to work beside the equine specialists and the horses at the Papillion Center as she has seen powerful moments of growth for clients who were struggling in traditional talk therapy. Mary Kathryn utilizes a systemic and holistic lens when working with clients as she believes a person is shaped by his or her experiences, family, spirituality, as well as their mental, emotional and physical state. As the sister of an adoptee, she holds a strong passion for the adoption population and walking beside them in their personal journeys. Mary Kathryn speaks American Sign Language fluently and therefore is able to provide services to these clients without the need of an interpreter. In her free time, Mary Kathryn loves being with her nephews, hanging out in coffee shops, writing letters, playing her guitar, and spending time with loved ones.
