Katherine (Kate) Evarts Rice, PsyD, from Hartland, Vermont, completed her undergraduate studies in Florida before attending Antioch University New England’s (AUNE) PsyD program. Her first practicum was at AUNE’s Psychological Services Center (PSC), through which she also worked at the local correctional facility. She then provided college counseling and psychoeducational assessment at Colby-Sawyer College, as well as psychotherapy and neuropsychological assessments in both outpatient and inpatient settings at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in White River Junction, VT. Kate completed her pre-doctoral internship at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH. Her dissertation revolved around sexual and gender minority veteran perspectives on disclosure of such identities to VA providers, given the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and ongoing trans ban. While on campus as a student at AUNE, Kate worked as a senior research assistant for the Center for Behavioral Health Innovation (BHI), and for Dr. Lorraine Mangione. She was also a member of the Support group for Ethnic and Racial Diversity (SERD) since she began at AUNE, and founded a Special Interest Group for sexual and gender minority groups. Kate returned to AUNE for post-doctoral work and has since become Core Faculty, Director of the Center for Diversity and Social Justice, and Assistant Clinical Director for the PSC.
Kate’s clinical and research interests include, but are not limited to, relational psychodynamic theories, sexual and gender diversity, social justice, attachment, and trauma. She is also interested in qualitative research, program development, evaluation, and implementation.
