Live well that the fruit you bear may be sweet

and a source of inspiration to all
Returning to the Source is Stillness,
Which is the way of nature.
The way of nature is unchanging - Lao Tsu

Welcome to Four Aims Counseling and Center for Mind-Body healing, the integrative psychotherapy practice of Kat Allen. My intention as a counselor and teacher is to provide psychotherapy and couples counseling for my clients as they strive for clear, authentic interaction, positive change, personal growth, and insight and shifts in behavior and thinking. Due to my extensive background with therapies that ground one in the the body, deepen emotional awareness, and pave the way for expanding consciousness, I specialize in three main areas: Relationship and Intimacy, Emotional Reactivity and Addiction. Having developed a multi-modal approach over the past two decades, I guide my clients in extremely effective work with a wide range of issues: ~Grief and Loss ~Complex trauma and PTSD ~Emotional regulation ~Depression-anxiety ~Family of Origin issues ~Body issues, Eating disorders, Perfectionism, ~Addictions-Compulsion in any form ~Life Transitions or spiritual crisis ~and the impact of all the above on Relationship In addition to maintaining my private practice, I am a certified yoga therapist, and have taught regular group yoga classes and meditation continuously since 1987. Because of my teaching background, I am a huge fan of psycho-education, and rely on and share the most up-to-date studies from the the fields of psychology and neurobiology as they relate to human behavior, and the implications for relationships. In that regard, I consider my study and practice of Mindfulness a key modality, along with Interpersonal Neurobiology, body-oriented Focusing techniques, and Emotionally-focused therapies. For Couples work, besides the aforementioned, I utilize Imago, Gottman, the Mosely Method, Gay and Kathleen Hendricks and Sue Johnson's work. I hope you find a lot of useful information on this website, and hope to speak with you soon!
