About    Kathy  Anderson

ms, lamft

My biggest hope for my clients is that they may experience a deep sense of peace, belonging, and contentment within themselves. My role as a therapist is to facilitate a space in which clients can fully experience their emotions, process through their thoughts, and work through their challenges with security, comfort, and support.

Therapy is a great way to begin a process of transformation, whether that is within your identity, your relationships, or any experience you may have gone through that has left a wound. Relationships are often where such wounding occurs, but they are also where a lot of restoration can begin. Through my own therapeutic journey, I have seen what healing can look like, which allows me to hold hope for my clients as they pursue what healing looks like for them. 

i'm so glad that you are here!

more about me

My passion for quality care is fueled by the support that I received through my own healing process. I have had my fair share of therapeutic experiences through moments of breakdown, hopelessness, insight, and breakthrough, both in individual and in couples therapy. I know what it's like to feel lost in your own world and to feel not at home in your own body. I have also seen what it's like to regain a sense of safety, to experience peace within relationship, and to grieve brokenness through to restoration. I am confident that you can see these things come to pass as well, and I am determined to walk alongside you to the best of my ability so that you can experience positive change. 

I have received level 1 training in Restoration Therapy, which is my main therapeutic approach. I also have extensive professional guidance with Internal Family Systems, Narrative Therapy, and Structural Family therapy.  I plan to get basic training in EMDR in 2021. My education has also equipped me to integrate matters of spirituality into therapy with clients who request it.

I am a master-level clinician licensed in the state of Arizona (LAMFT-10728). I have been working in the field of mental health since 2015. My graduate training had a specific focus on working with partnerships, families, and individuals within the context of crises and relational distress. During this time, I walked alongside folks who faced many different kinds of challenges, including infidelity, medical crises, depression, trauma, anxiety, and a variety of mental health diagnoses. My professional experience includes working with diverse populations and presenting issues at a private practice, as well as facilitating group, family, and couples therapy at a PTSD recovery center. Additionally, I have extensive training regarding spiritual matters, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Medical Family Therapy. I am supervised by board approved supervisor Michaela Decker (LMFT-15137).
