Kathryn Wierda, Ph.D.
AREAS OF SPECIALTY
Body Image &
I enjoy working with individuals to better help them understand their relationship with food and with their body. I work with individuals who struggle with disordered eating, eating disorders, and body image concerns. Collaboration with other healthcare providers (e.g., primary care physician, dietitian) plays an essential role in my work in order to provide more holistic treatment.
>We all show up in the world with various intersecting identities. I enjoy working with individuals who desire to explore and better understand an aspect of their identity or their intersecting identities, systems of oppression/privilege, and ways their life and/or relationships may be impacted by various identities.
Relational & Interpersonal Patterns
We grow up often learning relational patterns that are protective and help us cope. However, sometimes as an adult these patterns are no longer working for us and may even get in the way of getting our needs met. We will work together to help you better understand your relationship patterns and use the therapy relationship to practice new and more adaptive ways of relating.
I conduct psychological assessment to help aid in the diagnosis and treatment of mood disorders, personality disorders, ADHD, and learning disabilities. I also conduct assessment for individuals seeking pre-surgical evaluations.
