She/Her/HersPsychologist, PsyD Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Dr. Burdo is a seasoned clinical psychologist in a full-time remote private practice, offering individual psychotherapy to clients ages 18 and up. Dr. Burdo’s clients range from those struggling with depression, anxiety, the residue of past trauma, health, eating, family, achievement, adjustment, and relationship issues to those who value a never-ending growth mindset, are interested in emotional and spiritual development, and feel driven to keep expanding and maximizing their functioning in order to vision and create their ideal lives.
In her sessions, Dr. Burdo is able to offer a unique combination of traditionally acquired Western psychology knowledge and techniques and her understanding of Eastern philosophies, holistic health and wellness, and spiritual practices. Dr. Burdo has been transparent about her own life’s journey (blogs and podcasts available on drkatyaburdodotcom and a book will soon be available) and has used the knowledge derived from personal experiences to benefit her clients. Dr. Burdo’s philosophy is that when choosing a psychotherapist, one should consider whether the therapist has done enough personal work to be able to lead the client to where they want to go, thus avoiding a situation in which the blind is leading the blind.
Dr. Burdo’s background as a refugee and a self-made immigrant makes her value a therapeutic approach that utilizes compassion, humor, transparency, and directness to help clients move as quickly as possibly toward greater clarity, agency, self-worth, and well-being. Dr. Burdo’s goal is to become obsolete to her clients as a result of them learning how to access and stay in touch with their own internal guidance system and know how receive the answers to all questions from within, rendering the method of psychotherapy unnecessary.
