Katarina Guillen (She/Her)

Registered Psychotherapist, MA, RP
Life can be tough, especially if you are feeling stuck, alone, disconnected, burned out, or like something is missing. It takes a great deal of strength and commitment to work on your goals and your relationships, and you have taken an important step in making a change by looking for support. I believe that our lived experiences impact the way we interact with ourselves and others. In exploring these experiences, we can learn to grow, improve our relationships and communication, gain a deeper understanding of ourselves, and create meaningful change. I offer online individual youth and adult psychotherapy. I am here to provide support and guidance for difficulties such as strain in relationships, anxiety, self-criticism, difficulty setting boundaries, lack of intimacy and connection, difficulties related to parenting or family dynamics, or if you would like to develop emotional insight and emotion regulation skills. I may also be a good fit if you would like to strengthen relationships, work to live your life more aligned with your values and goals, heal past relational pains, develop assertive communication skills, work effectively towards your goals, manage stress or burnout, explore how to increase self-compassion, or develop emotionally informed parenting skills. I am committed to creating a supportive, collaborative, and compassionate environment in which you feel safe to explore the challenges you are facing. I value meeting you where you are at in your journey, and exploring steps towards meaningful change in your life. Everyone’s needs are different, please reach out to see if I would be a good fit for you!
