My name is Katarina and love helping people. I have been working in the counseling field for over 12 years and have had the opportunity to be in a variety of settings.
I have worked in the school setting, hospital settings, community agencies and a state prison. Each area has helped me to expand my knowledge and expertise, especially as it relates to managing stress, anxiety, depression, and being healthy overall. I am passionate about people being able to live their best lives. In counseling I emphasize how taking care of yourself can influence your mood and stress.
I have a Master's in Counseling and a Doctorate degree in Behavioral Health and I am licensed in Arizona.
For fun I like to spend time with my family and friends and I like to run. I have been been with my husband for over 20 years and we have 2 young children. In my life and work I am guided by my Catholic faith. I believe God helps guide us in all things and daily prayer and reflection is part of my life.
In counseling I use that faith to help guide people in their journey.
