to Four Aims Counseling
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, the integrative psychotherapy practice of Kat Allen. My intention as a counselor and teacher is to provide guidance for individuals and couples as they strive for authentic interaction, personal growth, insight and behavioral change. Due to my extensive background with therapies that ground one in the present moment and the body, I specialize in three main areas using Mindfulness as a key modality: 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, depression-anxiety, grief and loss, control issues, body issues, many forms of compulsion-addiction, and Intimacy & 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 studies in Interpersonal Neurobiology with Dr. Dan Siegel, and body-oriented Focusing techniques as paramount in my recent work. I hope you find a lot of useful information on this website, and hope to speak with you soon!
