I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with M.A. in Psychology & Counseling in Texas practicing over 10 years. I have worked with various age groups, ethnicities, genders under different settings, i.e., hospitals, residentials, private firms, & etc. I have experiences of working with various issues including various mood disorders/issues as well as personality disorders, ptsd, family issues, couples issues, gender issues, & more. I believe in resolving issues by exploring the root of the problem behaviors whether they be anxiety, depression, OCD, or relationship conflict.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy with Psycho Dynamic approaches are among my favorites to work with. I enjoy analyzing with my clients their thought patterns & behavior tendencies through exploring their childhood & current life to find some answers that they are looking for. It’s the best! Some times the process can be painful. That’s our defense mechanism stripping. It will be worth it though, when you make it there:)

Katy has shown such care and kindness. She keeps in touch with me and always responds quickly with helpful responses or worksheets. Katy is witty and honest and very easy to talk to.

Katy is the one who really cares about patients and she really does feel the same way how the patients feels.
If I need to describe her in three words..
Sympathy, warmhearted, and sharp.
She comforts patient and on top of that she catches what the patient needs.
I feel great full to have her as my therapist!

All around great listener. She has tools to offer and most importantly she doesn't give up on you. I am not treated like a case but person. I just love Katy as a therapist she is truly awesome. Thanks for all your support in listening and at times offering your encouragement in those rough places.
