Katherine Sarkarati is a licensed clinical social worker who has been treating individuals, families, and groups since 2010. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from UCLA as well as a Master’s in Social Welfare from UCLA.
Katherine was intensively trained in dialectical behavior and cognitive behavior therapies while interning at Harbor UCLA during her second year of graduate school. She also employs narrative, existential, humanistic and psychodynamic therapies in her work with clients. Katherine believes intensively in the power of empathy and self-compassion to dismantle old, unhelpful belief systems and break through shame. She has worked in a variety of settings from community mental health to inpatient psychiatric treatment.
One of Katherine’s favorite roles involves leading groups. Group therapy has the potential to create the power of connection and understanding while diminishing loneliness and disconnection from the self and others. She believes in the profound power of change and transformation and believes that all humans have the ability to heal and transform into their most authentic selves.
