Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Kathie!

Hi, I'm Kath and I'm a licensed LMFT #118735. My approach to therapy is rooted in an anti-oppressive lens and guided by authenticity and transparency so that we can gain trust and confidence in who we are outside of what we've been conditioned to believe. Some areas I like to focus on are gender/sexuality/identity issues, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and relational issues.

My approach

I work with diverse folks and use Psychodynamic, mindfulness, body awareness, cognitive-behavioral, existential, feminist, and narrative therapy approaches to achieve self-compassion and understanding of one's well-being.

My focus

I am passionate about working with Women, LBGTQIA+, QPOC, descendants of immigrants, couples, non-conventional couples, folks who are marginalized by systems of power and privilege, and people that reside within subcultures (ie: punks, goths, organizers, etc).

My communication style

I try to create an environment where clients can begin getting in tune with not only their thoughts but with their bodies and what is actually going on in real time. I want my clients to feel safe and open to allow for whatever is coming up for them to surface and be expressed.

My goals for you

I think it's up to clients to foresee where they want to be in their lives and will allow for clients to set up goals for their lives.

My first session with you

First session usually begins with a lot of questions about family background and history of mental health, along with getting to know your personality and understanding what types of approaches and interventions could be most beneficial for you.
