On the Spot: Kate Campbell

Name: Kate Campbell, Ph.D., LMFT

Job/title: Founder and president of Bayview Therapy (bayviewtherapy.com)

Place of residence: Fort Lauderdale


How does your day-to-day job play into your passion/s?

I’m extremely passionate about helping people to experience greater happiness in life and more fulfillment in their relationships. I’ve also fallen in love with entrepreneurship. I really enjoy mentoring, supporting and coaching our team of 20-plus clinicians at Bayview Therapy to make a greater impact in our South Florida community.

If you had to pick one meal to have every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I’d say let’s move to Italy and enjoy the amazing cuisine and culture.

If you could go back and talk to the version of yourself from 20 years ago, what advice would you give them?

To the 17-year-old version of myself, I’d probably say, “Stay true to yourself and make choices that are in alignment with your values. You are good enough. You don’t have to be perfect to be accepted. Perfection doesn’t exist. People will be attracted to you most when you’re real and authentic. So just be you.” This would have allowed me to make better choices during my teenage years, but then maybe I wouldn’t have become a therapist!

Where is your favorite place on the planet and why?

I love to travel, and I always love coming home after an amazing trip. If I had to choose one place, I think I would say the wine country in California. It’s such a beautiful place; each time I go, I love it even more. As a food and wine aficionado, it’s so much fun to drive through the countryside seeing the vineyards and experiencing new places.

If you had to point to one moment that has changed/altered your life what would it be?

The birth of our son in 2015 is the main memory that comes to mind. People always told me that having a child will expand my heart in ways that I could never imagine, and that’s so true. My husband, Brent, and I feel incredibly blessed to have him in our lives.

Besides anything involving family, what never fails to tug at your heartstrings?

When I see the couples I work with repair their relationship—or the individuals I help overcome challenges—that really moves me. I’m often inspired by the incredible courage, strength and innate resilience within people.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

When I was growing up my dad, Andy Mitchell—the developer of Auberge Beach Residences & Spa in Fort Lauderdale—always used to tell me that I was the “driver of my bus of life.” He had a million variations for this analogy, but it definitely stuck with me and inspired me to become a leader and a trailblazer in our industry.

When is the last time you were scared?

Funny story, I had a nightmare the other night that our 4-year-old son fell off the tall dresser in his bedroom in the middle of the night. I woke up screaming, “Oh my God,” and ran across the house to find him sleeping peacefully in his bed. I scared my husband half to death. Neither of us went back to sleep due to our adrenaline racing like crazy.

What’s something about you that people might be surprised to know?

Although I love being around people, I’m actually an introvert and need my downtime to recharge. According to the Myers Briggs personality test, I’m an “INFJ,” which tends to surprise people since I can appear more extraverted, especially when I’m in business mode.

If you could time travel, what time/place would you go and why?

I’d definitely travel back to the 1970s. I’ve always loved the music from that era, and bell bottom jeans, and I’m inspired by the movements during that time frame creating change and new possibilities. My friends in college used to joke and call me “hippie Kate” since I always loved that era.
