Katie Bendel, LMSW
Katie believes that recovery and wellness are best developed and reinforced by community with others, and connection to our core values such as integrity, and empathy. As a social worker, she believes there is intrinsic strength and resilience in everyone – her goal is to help others find and remember this.
Katie earned her Master of Social Work degree through The University of Texas at Arlington. Prior to joining ERC Pathlight, Katie applied her social work skills in a variety of settings including dual diagnosis and substance abuse treatment centers, and university/student disability services. Katie joined ERC Pathlight in 2017.
In her free time Katie enjoys gardening, kayaking with her husband - Ryan, mountain biking, hiking with her dogs – Buddy and Callie, creative arts, and volunteering in her community. Katie was born and raised in Texas and remains there today as a resident of the Hill Country. She is excited to support the ERC Pathlight Southern region and looks forward to connecting with you soon!
