Katherine Sibrian, MHC Intern

Pronouns: She/Her

Katherine grew up in a melting pot community with a meaningful focus on family and tradition. While she values this greatly, cultural implications painted the concept of therapy in a negative light. Still, Katherine was fortunate to later learn about psychology, and experienced its ability to contextualize the past, inform the present, and free the future. The more she learned, the more she wanted to continue to explore and develop to give back to her community. Katherine decided to pursue her Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University - New England, adding to her Bachelor’s in Sociology focused on Law and Society, from California State University, Los Angeles.

Katherine sees individuals and couples struggling with a variety of concerns such as depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, relationship distress, and life transitions. She particularly appreciates working with family relationships, individuals managing addictions, and those striving for a greater sense of autonomy in their life. Katherine is also passionate about working with minority groups and recent immigrants facing difficult adjustments, culture shock, cultural oppression, and other sources of frustration and confusion. Katherine considers it a great opportunity and joy to be able to combine her passion and experience advocating for social justice with her love of therapy.

Katherine works with each client to set up the best therapeutic approach for that person. Some modalities and theories she especially finds helpful include person-centered, DBT, and Structural Family Therapy.

Katherine’s aim is to help each of her clients leave each session a little better in some way than when they came in, even if it may not feel like it at the time. She works in an empathetically, straight forward, realistic, and inclusive way putting safety first and foremost. Katherine values honest and open feedback and dialogue with her clients particularly as it applies to cultural feedback. She offers her clients a strong container, thick skin, and commitment, while hoping that her clients feel able to fully and authentically show up and speak openly. Katherine is there to support, encourage, and offer different ways to view the therapeutic process to help her clients view their worlds with greater compassion, clarity, and courage.
