Therapy for Couples, Individuals, and Kids
I’m Kathy White, and I’m a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) licensed by the State of California. MFT’s specialize in relationships, and from my experience, relationships provide the context for the majority of our struggles.
My basic framework or style of therapy is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. That’s because I believe that so much of how we feel and how we respond is based on what we’re thinking, our cognitions. However, therapy is not one-size-fits-all. I will keep in mind that what’s important is that it is effective for you.
Some of my clients tell me that I get right to the point - I suppose that's true. You see, my work as a Marriage and Family Therapist is a second career, and I don't always use the jargon of the stereotypical therapist as portrayed in the movies, on television and in the comics. Yes, once in a while a "Hmm" or a "How does that make you feel?" slips out, but for the most part working with me is more like going on a journey with a guide who has spent the time to get to know you and know where you want to go.
Contact me to take the first step on your journey... for yourself, your marriage, your kids or teens.
