About me

I am a licensed professional counselor licensed in Texas with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, family issues and ADHD. I have worked in a variety of settings, including community mental health, a pain management clinic, and primarily private practice, so I have a wide range of experience.

My counseling style is supportive and non-judgmental. I believe in treating anyone with respect and compassion, and I believe that my role is to question and guide, not to make decisions for you. My approach combines a basis of client centered therapy with a variety of cognitive-behavioral techniques. Of course, treatment is collaborative and will be tailored for your specific needs.

Change is difficult, but can be very rewarding. I am looking forward to supporting you as you move forward.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kathleen Petrak. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Kathleen brought me back from the dead with compassion and listening. She has been my therapist for about a year and a half but I will be taking some time off from her only to begin implementing what I have been guided towards. I would recommend her to anyone who needs the help.

One of the most amazing, neutral, and attentive therapists I have ever spoken with.

My time with Kathleen was great. I had found myself a bit beaten up and unhappy overall simply because I had developed unhealthy patterns during Covid. She helped me recognize them and begin to address them.
