My name is Katina Boulai and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California. I know that seeking help can be a difficult choice but you are not alone. I have many years experience working with families, couples, and individuals using a relational, cognitive behavioral therapy and family systems approach.
I have experience with diverse populations with issues relating to depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, parenting, divorce, grief, life transitions, and relationship issues. I also worked with the adult homeless community and teens experiencing issues with addiction.
My approach is respectful and empathetic working in the here and now based on my client's need. Taking this step is not always easy but very helpful in order to develop better ways of dealing with day-to-day struggles.
Having someone with whom you can safely and privately discuss your concerns creates an opportunity to achieve a better quality of life. I use a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. What we discuss is confidential except if there are any concerns that you may be a danger to yourself or others.
My office hours are Monday-Thursday 6:00-8:00 P.M and I typically respond to messages within 24 hours or sooner if possible.

I didn’t know what to expect, but all I can say is that my expectations were beyond met by Katina. She’s helped me work through problems I didn’t realize I ignored, helped me create goals and standards for myself, and most of all has helped rebuild my self confidence. I couldn’t ask for anything more.
Katina is amazing. She has been a strong positive force in my life, and helped me find my way through a difficult chapter. She is patient, thoughtful and understanding, and is great at creating a safe, comfortable space for openly sharing ideas. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a counselor.
Katina has been kind and patient listening to my concerns as we work to figure out my feelings and come up with a plan to work with them.
Katina is very patient, supporting, and understanding.
Katina helps me by asking questions I never thought of.
Katina is great at what she does. She respects you, listens to you, and be there for you. She is very professional and I can feel that she enjoys and cares about people.
