Ivy Katz, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

I believe counseling is a collaborative approach where we work together to explore areas in your life that give you meaning and purpose. I believe as humans we feel our best when we have a sense of connection and trust.

My Approach

Often we come to therapy because some area of our life feels disconnected. This can be in relationship to others, ourselves, our environment, or to something much larger. It is generally through life experiences, family, culture and things that are usually beyond our control that we develop maladaptive ways of connecting. We generally lose trust in ourselves and/or the world around us. We come to therapy when we begin to see these ways as no longer serving us. My approach is mindfulness-based, meaning that I will help you deepen your awareness of the specific ways you experience yourself, others, and the world around you. I will guide and support you in cultivating compassion and acceptance towards yourself and others, so that you feel empowered to make the positive changes you desire in your life.

My Background

I hold a masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis & Clark College. I also have completed a certificate in Ecopsychology. This framework speaks to the recognition of the connections between the mental health of the client with the overall health of the culture and the planet. Along with this I have completed professional training from M.E.T.A in Hakomi Body Centered Psychotherapy, EMDR and Equine assisted psychotherapy through EAGALA certification and Natural Lifemanships Trauma focused equine assisted psychotherapy. I have worked in the mental health field since 2007, including wilderness therapy, residential treatment, private practice and outpatient counseling clinics. My experience includes adults, adolescents, couples and families. Along with my experience in counseling I am a certified yoga teacher and have traveled the country teaching trauma informed yoga trainings. I received my bachelor’s degree from Prescott College in human development as well as dance.
