Terese Weinstein Katz
She/Her/HersMarriage and Family Therapist, MFT PhD Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
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.
