My Approach to Helping

My name is Dr. Katina Pittman. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia with 16 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress, anxiety, and depression. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.

My therapeutic approach changes based on the needs of each client. Some of the approaches I use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Person-Centered therapy. I believe that our thoughts, feelings, and behavior are connected. I work with individuals in identifying any underlying thoughts and expressing their feelings. Once we identify those thoughts the goal is to use cognitive restructuring to help replace those thoughts and improve feelings. I also educate on healthy self-care and coping skills to improve overall well-being. Clients who are struggling with problem-solving would be educated on effective problem-solving skills. I work primarily with adults who struggle with everyday life stressors such as financial concerns, relationship struggles, family issues, medical concerns, job concerns, or other concerns. I also work with those who are feeling depressed, anxious, struggle with low self-esteem or body image issues.

My communication style involves actively listening, being nonjudgmental, validating, and being empathic. I ask a lot of open-ended questions to help clients truly explore their thoughts and emotions and gain insight into their behavior. The goal is to establish a relationship built on trust and mutual respect where clients feel supported and empowered. I always strive to create a positive and supportive environment when working with clients. I became a therapist because I have always had a desire to help others. I enjoy making a difference in the lives of others by helping people work through the challenges they face. My goal is to see individuals live healthier and happier lives.

My approach to goal setting is to have clients identify the changes they want to make. I typically start by asking clients what brings them to therapy and what their main concerns are. Once we identify the goals we prioritize those goals to determine which goal the client wants to work on first, second, and so forth. Following this, we create smaller short-term goals to accomplish the bigger goal. This would be a collaborative process between myself and the client, one in which we review regularly to determine progress made towards reaching the goals.

During the first session, we would go over informed consent and confidentiality. I complete an intake assessment so that I can get to know what is concerning each individual, their history, and their goals for counseling. My goal is to build a good therapeutic relationship with each client one that empowers and supports. I also educate clients further on my therapeutic approach during the first session.
