Dr. Katrina Sanford is down for smashing the patriarchy, sexism, and racism through self and community healing. She is a Clinical Psychotherapist with specialties in Trauma and Sex Therapy. Dr. Sanford uses her trauma informed background to challenge social injustice issues for her clients and community, particularly racially induced inequities. Dr. Sanford spends much of her time helping her clients decolonize their minds, bodies, and souls from Euro-centric ways of being that continue to negatively impact our whole selves. Becoming our better selves involves breaking down the historical inaccuracies the dominant culture has created about about all of us and being open to working through the inter-generational traumas/barriers that have left us with a lack of understanding of how truly amazing we are. I'm here to help you develop the self-love that is necessary for true growth and evolution in this life.
Dr. Sanford works from a social justice integrated approach based in Feminist Theory, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Dr. Sanford uses these approaches to treat her clients through a holistic health lens that emphasizes the inseparable connection between the mind and body. Dr. Sanford works to help empower her clients by aiding in the understanding of one's behavioral patterns and how our thoughts and feelings can drastically effect our behavior.
