About Kate White
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT license #46564) with a private practice in Oakland.
I graduated with my master's degree from Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont, CA.
Harriet Goldhor Learner, Ph.D. notes, "In our rapidly changing society we can count on only two things that will never change...the will to change and the fear of change." Change, no matter how badly you desire it, can be hard. The comfort and sense of safety to maintain sameness exists for a reason. I help guide clients on the path to change in a gentle, thoughtful manner. Paradoxically, "change" often means arriving at acceptance and compassion for oneself.
My approach and orientation is varied and tailored to meet the needs of my clients. I frequently integrate mindfulness--the act of being conscientious and intentional in our actions and being aware of the present moment--into our work. I believe a mix of in-depth exploration paired with hands on, concrete tools maximizes potential for growth and development. We'll work together to define your intentions and hopes for therapy on an ongoing basis.
