THERAPY FOR ADOLESCENTS, ADULTS, COUPLES & FAMILIES
Hi, I'm Katrina
Realizing there are times that are too overwhelming to handle on your own is scary. My approach to psychotherapy is to create a warm, nonjudgmental, and safe environment that supports adolescents, families and adults through whatever life circumstance they are struggling with. I encompass a multi modal approach when working with my clients so every unique individual diversity is honored and respected. I draw upon therapeutic modalities that help the individual re-establish a relationship with their lost inner strengths and open new perspectives that foster more self love and compassion. I am compassionate yet also direct and believe in the power of education to help decrease the negative stigma around mental health.
I received my B.A. in Global and International Studies with a Minor in Spanish at University of California, Santa Barbara and my M.A. in Counseling Psychology with Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy and Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. I have professional experience working at Family Service Agency in Santa Barbara/Carpinteria, Santa Barbara City College, and Goleta Union School District. I look forward to connecting with you!
Katrina provides individual, family, and couples therapy to adolescents and adults to provide support for many various life obstacles:
Depression & Anxiety
Sitting with anxiety and depression can be painful and isolating. Therapy can help individuals manage their symptoms and not feel alone within their experience.
Children & Adolescents
Children and adolescents can benefit from emotional education and learning the tools to self-soothe, relax and emotionally regulate in healthy and responsible ways.
The complex and dynamic emotional experience of grief can often leave one feeling like they've lost their protective layers. Therapy can help individuals slowly grow back those protective layers and lead them down the healing path.
As an ally to all folks within the community, I provide a safe space to process and explore challenges related to identity exploration and development. Establishing a positive relationship with ourselves is an essential platform to foster more self-love and build a healthy state of mind.
Navigating life changes and transitions can be challenging and emotional. I love supporting individuals through the array of life transitions like college, parenthood, new careers and new identities.
There are multiple factors that can disrupt the harmony within relationships. Building open, and honest communication, and learning to identify maladaptive behaviors can aid in regaining balance and stability within relationships.
