About Me

Katherine Alvarado

I am a therapist and have a clinical social work license in the state of New York. Deciding to seek therapy can be a difficult choice. Unfortunately the stigma surrounding mental health is still common, which is very unfair because the truth is that we all have emotions and go through difficult times in life.

Therapy is for brave and determined people because therapy is work. It is not merely talking, it is a challenge and a commitment to reach personal goals and objectives. There are many common but painful situations in life such as: divorce, the death of a loved one, changes in the family, anxiety, addiction, and trauma. It is normal to need help sometimes. No one knows everything and everyone can learn how to better navigate difficult circumstances and the various hardships that are all too common yet painful in life.

You should feel that your therapist is in tune with your needs and is a good fit with your personality. I invite you to contact me to discuss your goals and to see if we would work well together.

Christian Counseling

What is Christian Counseling?

Many times science and God are separated. Science is the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. I think that what we see and study in the physical and natural world was made by God. One of the frameworks I use in therapy is to unite both God and behavioral science. Specifically in Christian counseling I like to incorporate both Christian tenets and evidence based practices (EBP). I believe in all EBPs and use them professionally in my private practice. I can hold both God and the science of human behavior together in session. The human mind has a designer. Just as the watchmaker fully knows the details and functions of the watch, no one knows the depth as well as the intricacies of the mind more than the One who made it.

As a Christian and a therapist I see the beauty and benefits of both. If you are a Christian and would like to discuss the option of Christian counseling I invite you to contact me to discuss your goals and to see if we would work well together.
