Welcome to Somatopsyche

Using the Wisdom of the Body to Facilitate Healing and Connection

Hi, I'm Katrina

Welcome to my practice, Somatopsyche. The name roughly translates to body-mind, which is what I specialize in working with. (Somato = of the body; psyche = mind)

I am a somatic psychotherapist, which means that all of the wonderful training I've had on how to work with cognitive, behavioral, relational, and traumatic material also comes with a bit of a different lens: how it lives in your body. I'm here to help you understand and accept overwhelming, intolerable, or even damaging sensations, stories, and behaviors so that we can begin to shift them to help you access more joy, stability, and pleasure. Please feel free to head over to my blog to read about examples and practical applications of this kind of work.

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in the state of California and I've been providing therapy since 2017. I currently offer teletherapy throughout California and hybrid therapy in both the Bay Area and greater Sacramento area.  I received my Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology - concentration in Somatic Psychotherapy - from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. My practicum training was completed through the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy in Downtown SF, and my associateship through both Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center and The Couples Center.

I now happily reside in the Sierra Foothills with my partner, our two darling dogs and our wonderful cat.

I am committed to providing a safe, trauma informed, body-positive, sex-positive, LGBTQ+ and BIPOC-allied space.

Services
 

Individual Therapy

What is it that you desire? Are you looking for greater self-awareness, more rewarding relationships, resolution of difficulties from your past? With gentle curiosity we can help you learn new ways to access your authentic strength, tenderness, resilience, and pleasure.

Partner(s) Therapy

Whether you are a couple or a moresome, relationships can be supremely challenging. Partner therapy is a compassionate, nonjudgemental space where we can deepen into trust and connection to explore what may be holding you back from having the relationship you want. 

Family Therapy

Most of us know what it's like to get stuck in patterns or dynamics that aren't serving us - and this is especially true in family systems. However, we don't just have to work with what we're given. Let's get creative in creating new paradigms, ones that we choose to mindfully build with one another.
