Professional statement

Dr. Terese Weinstein Katz is a clinical psychologist with nearly 30 years' experience. She has worked with a wide variety of people and problems, most often with depression, anxiety, trauma, and relational issues. She maintains a strong subspecialty in eating problems, especially the common and widespread concerns of binging, chronic dieting, and poor body image.

Dr. Katz holds both MFT and PhD degrees, with thorough training in psychodynamic and family systems thinking. She is a strong believer in the value of self-understanding--especially as it allows for more self-compassion, better self-care, and the ability to make new choices. However, she also feels strongly that most of us often need something else as well. Relief from symptoms or addictive behaviors, stopping old habits and relational patterns may call for more than understanding alone. For this reason, Dr. Katz has pursued additional training in cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness meditation, stress management, breathwork and somatic approaches. An individual therapy path can include the elements most suited to and likely to help each person.

As a certified breathwork facilitator, in fact, Dr. Katz offers conscious connected breathwork sessions. These are not psychotherapy per se, but offer benefits that can support therapy, or even replace it at times. Some categorize this type of breathwork as "non-drug psychedelic experience". Dr. Katz has been intrigued by these practices as they offer the benefits of somatic release as well as, at times, transcendent experience. Both of these factors have been proven to help people surmount various emotional difficulties and to significantly broaden life perspectives.

Clients find Dr. Katz to be warm, non-judgmental, personable, and smart. She welcomes your questions and appreciates your interest, always.


Message to clients

I think of starting therapy as taking a first, important step toward feeling better and becoming more of the person you want to be. I've been a therapist for many years now, and I'm still moved by how much people can learn and change and grow. Knowing yourself better, exploring your situation in a non-judgmental space, with a person who comes to know you well, makes all the difference.

I think it's fair to say that life can be hard at times, in one way or another, for just about everyone. Our emotions, bodies and relationships may all hold the possibility of health and vitality....but they can also bring pain and difficulty. While this may be true generally, each of us has a unique history and make-up. And each of us will find our best way forward in ways that "fit" for us. It is because of this that over the years I have added to my psychodynamic and family systems knowledge a variety of potential pathways to help people translate understanding into change and growth. This may mean, for example, gaining skills, learning to relax or to communicate better.

In a first session, I will ask many questions, share my impressions and thoughts about how to best move forward. Together we will identify what may work best for you. I encourage your questions and invite you to contact me if you'd like to talk more.
