Kathryn Ventry, MA, MS, LMFT

Kathryn Ventry View Specialties

I offer warm and nonjudgmental support to individuals (children to older adults), couples and families. If you're feeling anxious, suffering from a past trauma, or trying to manage Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), I can offer you many resources and tools to help you change or view your circumstances in a new way. Counseling can access your full potential and lead to a more satisfying life. 

I specialize in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples. EFT helps couples and families heal their attachment wounds, feel safer with each other with a greater capacity for intimacy. I help couples communicate openly and deepen their connection to each other. In addition to EFT, I am also trained in Gottman Method Couple Therapy. 

My private practice is in El Dorado Hills. I also work part-time at an Intensive Outpatient Program for Anxiety Disorders. It is humbling and rewarding to partner with children and adults who struggle with panic, social anxiety, body image problems, hair pulling, tics, Tourette's and past trauma. I offer hope and multiple tools and resources to my clients as they journey towards healing and wellness. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which has been clinically studied and proven effective in treating trauma and other issues. I'm trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT), which can help you overcome your self-defeating beliefs and change how you view yourself, others and the world.

I also offer equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP), which involves working with horses on the ground, for personal growth and other issues.

My goal as a therapist is to bring relief or resolution of your problems in a timely manner. My counseling is very collaborative as I want you to be fully engaged in the process to ensure the best outcomes. I believe every person, no matter their personal history or current circumstances, has the ability to change and grow.
