Psychotherapy in Palo Alto, CA   |   Kate Parkinson, MFT, CSAT, CMAT

kate_smallWelcome to Recovery of Self Counseling and the practice of Kate Parkinson.  My belief is that clients are inherently precious human beings worthy of love and respect, who seek professional support when self limiting, immature, and destructive patterns of behavior and interpersonal relatedness block their ability to experience rich and fulfilling lives.

As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) and EMDR practitioner, in the treatment of Addictions and Intimacy Disorders, I rely on the development of a safe and nurturing therapeutic relationship, in addition to outcome driven, evidence-based and task-centered approaches.  Together we will uncover the causes of your impulsive self-destructive behavior.  Whether your struggles involve past traumatic stress, rejection, abandonment, or invalidation, I will help you resolve the underlying issues, in order to develop Self-hood and the capacity for true love.

Recovery of Self Counseling welcomes individual adults, couples, and adolescents.

Sexual addiction is a complex addiction but there is hope! As a trained Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT®), I have completed training developed by Dr. Patrick Carnes which required attendance at multiple training modules and supervision with a CSAT Supervisor. It also requires ongoing education so that CSATs such as myself are experts in providing therapy to sex addicts as well as, their partners and families.
