Dr. Katrina Sanford uses African centered healing approaches to promote collective healing and wellness. She is a Clinical Psychologist based in Seattle, WA. Dr. Sanford is in private practice with specialties in Trauma and Sex Therapy. She uses her trauma informed background to challenge and support social injustice issues for her clients and community, particularly racially induced inequities. Helping clients decolonize their minds, bodies, and souls from Euro-centric ways of being is her ultimate goal. Becoming our better selves involves breaking down the historical inaccuracies colonizing cultures have forced on all of us. Additionally, Dr. Sanford helps empower her community to work through the inter-generational traumas/barriers that have left our people with a lack of understanding of how truly amazing we are. Dr. Sanford sees it as her purpose to aid her community in developing a deeper self-love that is necessary for true growth and evolution in this life.
Dr. Sanford works from a social justice integrated approach based in African centered thought, and spirituality, Herbalism, Feminist Theory, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. She uses these approaches to treat her clients through a holistic health lens that emphasizes the inseparable connection between the mind, body, and spirit. 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.
