Katherine (Kate) Rice, PsyD
Post-Doctoral Fellow, Clinical Psychology
Katherine (Kate) Rice, PsyD is a recent graduate from Hartland, Vermont. She completed her undergraduate studies in Florida before coming to Antioch University New England (AUNE) in 2012. Kate’s first practicum was at Antioch’s Psychological Services Center (PSC), through which she also worked at the local jail, where she co-found and co-led a group, in addition to seeing individual clients. She then provided college counseling and psychoeducational assessment at Colby-Sawyer College, and psychotherapy and neuropsychological assessments in both outpatient and inpatient settings at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in White River Junction, VT. Kate then completed her pre-doctoral internship at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH. Her dissertation revolved around LGBTQ+ veteran perspectives on the possible effects of the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell on comfort with disclosure of sexual and gender minority identities to mental health care providers. 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, for which she led community service days and organized presentations.
She has returned to AUNE for post-doctoral work as affiliate faculty, evaluator for BHI, and assistant director of the PSC. Kate’s clinical interests include, but are not limited to, relational psychodynamic theories, LGBTQ+ health and rights, social justice, attachment, and trauma. She is also interested in research, program development, evaluation, and implementation.
