Katrina’s journey in the mental health profession has come full circle. Her early experiences in mental health were at residential treatment centers for those who have been diagnosed with severe mental illness. She pursued social work wanting to be a therapist, but opportunities shifted after earning her Master of Social Work at Arizona State University. The stops on her way back to her original destination include child welfare, medical social work, and inpatient psychiatric care. She developed an interest in integrated health and compassion fatigue.These experiences led Katrina to pursue therapy again and she cannot imagine doing anything else. Katrina encourages therapy because it is a unique relationship in which it’s not only acceptable but required, for one party (in this case the client) to be the sole focus without any expectation for reciprocation. If you’re having trouble navigating your emotions or your behavior because of new phases in your life, come to talk to her. Katrina will listen and will empathize. Together we will work to utilize your strengths to allow for adjustments to the ever-changing world.In her spare time, Katrina enjoys virtual spin classes on her Peloton bike, hiking, and watching sports.
