Authentic Counseling Associates

Katrina Lamar
Practicum Student



I am passionate about helping people live their life as who they want to be.  I am a calm, patient listener who cares deeply about the needs of my clients.  I believe that anyone who comes into therapy has taken a brave step towards living the life he or she wishes to live.  I approach therapy like a journey towards discovering the inner workings of one’s mind and how we can use these inner workings to live the life we want to live.

The treatment modalities I usually use are:

  • Mindfulness
  • Meditation/guided imagery
  • Redecision therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy
  • Life coaching

I am a doctoral student in a Clinical Psychology program through Fielding Graduate University and I hold a BA in general psychology.  I also study Health Psychology, which is the study of how the mind, body and behavior can affect health.  I have experience with coaching, therapy and case management.  I am an intern here at Authentic Counseling Associates.

I have experience working with adults with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • PTSD
  • Alcohol and other substances
  • Trauma

I also believe in helping at the community livel and through my experience in case management have coordinated care with other health care workers such as medial doctors and psychiatrists and courts.  I consider confidentiality a necessity, however, so I do not coordinate without permission from the client.
