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 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 and present moment, I specialize in three main areas: Relationship, Reactivity and Addiction. Having developed a multi-modal approach over the past two decades, I do extremely effective work with a wide range of issues, such as on-going complex trauma and PTSD, emotional regulation issues, depression-anxiety, grief and loss, perfectionism, body issues, many forms of compulsion-addiction, and Intimacy and Couples. 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, Schnarch, Gottman, and Sue Johnson's work. I hope you find a lot of useful information on this website, and hope to speak with you soon!
