About Therapy

2323048115The best place to start is where you are.

Right now.

Let me join you there, for better or worse, and let’s figure this out.

Whatever has happened – whatever is happening…

It’s impacting how you feel, think, and act.

I want to lean in and be present.

Our ordinary social environment doesn’t always give us the support needed to make intentional, positive changes.

So, let’s step outside of social norms.

If we put our expectations aside, we can create a space with more authenticity, acceptance, understanding, validation, and empathy.

I’m a “Yes… AND” kind of girl. You can be accepted as you are AND encouraged and challenged to adjust the next steps in your recovery. Your parenting. Your approach to life.

We can be so quick to take an all-or-nothing approach to our problems. “It’s all my fault” can leave us feeling ashamed, hopeless, and helpless.

AND before setting your life’s course based on a thought that may not tell the whole story, let’s challenge ourselves to take a closer look.

Feel better… faster!

Some people benefit from working long-term with a great therapist. If that’s what you’re looking for, I’m down… as long as we’re working TOWARD something.

Now… if you’re the kind of person who has goals for things to be “better,” “different,” or “normal” sooner than later, we’re a great fit to work together!

I value efficiency and want to help you achieve your goals as quickly as possible without sacrificing the quality of your care.

I’m here to help.

You’re here because you’re ready for a change.

And I know you bring a lot of strengths and determination to the table.

Let’s combine them with my experience to decide the right course of action for you.

It’s time to live a better life! Call today, and we’ll schedule your free consultation: (214) 534-5380

About Me

AdminHi, I’m Katrina.

I’m a psychologist and a parent, and I have faced my own challenges.

I’ve been fortunate to have others accept me at my lowest. They’ve also challenged me to change in ways that benefit me and those around me.

I want to be that person for you.

My road to becoming a therapist…

I got my start in “tweens and teens” as a middle-school science teacher, collaborating with others who care about children and families: parents, teachers, and administrators. I learned that adolescents have a lot to figure out, juggle, get right, and correct after getting wrong. I also realized that childhood adversity is common and often goes unaddressed.

I headed to graduate school to learn to work even more closely with adolescents and their families. I taught parents how to have loving relationships with their young children… and how to get their children to mind and make good choices.

I learned to support children, teens, and adults impacted by childhood trauma, working with them to enhance their ability to learn, grow, love, and accept love from others.

My spouse and I built our family through adoption.

We jumped through all the hoops, welcomed our child, and continue to navigate the conversations, questions, fears, and power of an open relationship with our child’s first family.

And I’ve parented. How lucky I was to learn about behavior management before our child was born!

But like all parents, I make mistakes, have bad parenting days, and feel guilty when I miss the mark. And like all parents, I wake up the following day and do it all again.
