Katherine Vanharen

BFA, MSW Student, Intern

Katie is a recent addition to the Crow River Family Services team as a Mental Health Practitioner and an Intern. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre from Minnesota State University – Moorhead in 2016, and during that time Katie realized a passion for mental health and the many ways it affects individuals. Katie is currently a Master of Social Work student at St. Cloud State University and is expected to graduate in May of 2019. Incorporating the arts into practice is a devotion of Katie’s and is a vital part of practice that she has found to be most effective over her time in the field. Social justice, policy work, anti-racism work, and harm reduction are important to Katie and how she practices. She is excited to be part of the Crow River Family Services team and to be working in both Minneapolis and St. Cloud.
