Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Katherine!

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with nine years of experience working in California. I have a warm and interactive therapy style, treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion.

My approach

My therapeutic approach draws from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), attachment-based models, Christian counseling, Complicated Grief Therapy (CGT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), family therapy and family systems, mindfulness-based techniques, narrative therapy, strength-based approaches, and trauma-focused interventions.

My focus

I work with individuals, families, and minors ages 13-17. My specialties include treating adolescents/teens, adoption issues, aging concerns, anger management, anxiety, behavioral issues, bipolar disorder, borderline personality, child abuse or neglect, codependency, coping skills, depression, developmental disorders, dissociative disorders, emotional disturbance, family conflict, grief, life transitions, OCD, older adults, oppositional defiance, parenting challenges, sexual abuse, thought disorders, trauma and PTSD.

My communication style

I aim to create an interactive dialogue in our sessions. My communication style is respectful, sensitive, and compassionate. I will support and empower you in your therapeutic journey.

My journey to mental healthcare

I earned my Master of Arts degree and became licensed as a marriage and family therapist. Over the past nine years practicing in California, I have been driven by a passion for supporting people in leading happier, more fulfilling lives.

My goals for you

My goals for you are to help you build the coping skills, self-understanding, and emotional well-being to thrive and make positive changes. I will provide a safe, caring space for you to explore your experiences, relationships, and patterns. Together we will work to empower you to live the life you envision for yourself.

My first session with you

In our first session, we will discuss what is bringing you to therapy at this time in your life. I will ask about your background, current situation, challenges, and hopes. We'll collaboratively explore your goals and how I can best support you. This is also an opportunity for you to ask me any questions and see if we feel like a good fit to work together. The first session is the beginning of building our therapeutic relationship.
