Meet the Counselors

Kate Caszatt


 Hello! I am currently working on my (hopefully!) last year of working towards my master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am passionate about working to eliminate the negative stigma of mental health in our culture, and wish to work diligently to treat each client as an individual. In doing so, I strive to do my best to meet them where they are at on their journey. I look forward to working with clients on their this semester. When not working or doing coursework, I enjoy reading, travel, spending time with my family and friends, and music.


Kenzie Fedewa


Hello! My name is Kenzie, and I am a counselor-in-training at Central Michigan University. I earned my Bachelor degree in Psychology at CMU. As a clinician, I use a strengths-based cognitive-behavioral approach, stemming from a strong therapeutic relationship and a socioecological perspective. I aspire to create a safe space for healing for clients coming from any background. I practice self-care by watching Jeopardy with my husband, 7 month old, and two cats named Todd and Larry. In my free time I also enjoy coaching, teaching, and participating in pole vault.

Kevin Schmitt

I graduated from Michigan Technological University in April 2016 and I'm currently finishing up my master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at CMU. I believe Mental Health is an under addressed issue in our society and that counseling is the best way that I can use my skills to address it. With a focus on solution-focused and existential theory, I want to help clients achieve their goals in a safe and collaborative therapeutic environment. While I'm not studying or working, I practice self-care by listening to music, playing video games, or watching TV shows.
