Life is full of challenges. We all face hard times, stress and struggles at some point during our lives. Unfortunately, we cannot change the past, but we can change our thoughts and feelings about what has happened to us and choose how to deal with it and the effect it will have on us in the future. I specialize in working with children, teens, adults, families and couples dealing with depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, relationship problems and life transitions (marriage, divorce, becoming a parent, moving, becoming empty nesters, grief and loss, etc.).

My name is Katherine and I am a licensed therapist. I have a deep passion for this work as I too, have endured my own personal struggles related to trauma, anxiety and depression. Growing up, I had a strong will, often feeling that I needed to hold in my feelings and handle life on my own. After I endured various traumatic events in my life, I sought out therapy. Reaching out to a therapist was a terrifying first step for me. It was hard for me to imagine that I could trust a stranger to hold my pain. Being vulnerable was my greatest fear.

We are each born with the capacity to live a full, joyous and productive life. Through the natural events of our less than perfect world, this capacity is diminished. In some way we know that this is possible and at the same time realize that we are limited. The area of limitation may be in our relationship to ourselves - somehow being unable to experience compassion or appreciation for our own beings. These limitations create pain and unnecessary suffering. Just as we have the capacity for living full and productive lives, I believe that we all have the capacity for healing.

I enjoy helping children, teens, adults, couples, families, and groups use art (and/or traditional talk therapy) to identify their emotions, explore sources of internal/external conflict, and introduce healthier coping strategies into their everyday lives. I tend to approach therapy with Gestaltist and existentialist principles in order to help clients identify points where they feel "stuck," practice accountability, incorporate exercises and techniques to become "unstuck," and ultimately improve their relationship with the "here and now." I also work under a trauma-informed model.

I provide my patients with a safe and non-judgmental space to express their thoughts and feelings.

How are you functioning in your life? In your relationships? Are you joyful, confident, optimistic? Or are you feeling stuck, sad, frustrated, or lonely? Relationships are the primary force in our lives; without healthy relationships our lives suffer. Because relationships are so important, the way we attach to others is within those relationships, and how we create healthy attachments is extremely important. What I work toward is healthier relationships for my clients; relationship with self as well as with others. In our work together it will be our relationship that provides a safe place from which to explore change.

Life can be complicated and challenging, and there is no "how to" guide. You work so hard, juggling all the different parts of life, but don't feel fulfilled or satisfied. Everything feels like a struggle. You work so hard and it feels like you're barely holding on. What do we do when things happen that throw us off course.? What do we do when we get stuck in a cycle that we don't know how to change? I want you to know that it can get better. The fact that you're reading this right now means that you're ready to feel good. By building tools and exploring the barriers, you can create the life you want, the life you deserve!

We only know what we know, no shame in not knowing what we don’t. Consider it a privilege to accompany you on your journey to a more fulfilling life. Therapy shouldn't have to be complicated or intimidating. I work with a compassionate, supportive, and individualized approach reducing your distress and symptoms and build your strength and resilience. I'm a lmft with over 35 years experience. My style is interactive, direct, and supportive. I focus on the here-and-now but recognize that one's past impacts choices, feelings, and behaviors in the present. I hope you find therapy with me to be a safe, nurturing, productive experience.

Fear is often a reality when the truth is concealed. Anxiety, depression, addiction, etc. can manifest by keeping individuals in fear and bondage to the unknown. There is liberty when fear is confronted. I assist with the process and provide a safe place to reframe a new narrative and reality.

During a time of instability, some sort of consistency helps create a small sense of normal. Establishing a routine is essential, especially during a time of a Pandemic, when our ground has shifted, habits altered or broken. During a time that we are required for social distancing and isolation, we are also forced to slow down. We are provided the choice to find ways to connect and look within, to learn, to adapt and grow. My name is Channie Amato and I have hand selected a team of excellent therapists with various specialties. We strive to create a therapeutic space of comfort and support and meeting the client at where they are at

For most individuals it is difficult to know where to turn when seeking help for depression, anxiety, self-harm, or interpersonal relationships. It is important to find someone who understands and above all someone to trust this change with. It is my belief that it is through this relationship and the will to find the real person underneath the hurt that we grow. By incorporating awareness of the mind, body and spirit there is little an individual cannot overcome. But this requires support and guidance.

Welcome! I know seeking support takes a lot of courage, and I am so glad you are here. For me, therapy is about getting to know yourself, specifically how our thoughts, emotions, body sensations, and behaviors are all connected and can influence our relationships. My goal as a therapist is to assist you in working through life challenges by creating a safe, non-judgemental environment built on trust, empathy, and understanding. As a first-generation Guatemalan-American, I also understand the importance of being culturally aware, as well as the influence and impact it can set on interpersonal relationships and self-reflection.

What type of Tarzana mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Tarzana?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
