Lead the examined life.


Each individual session hour is 50 minutes long, and costs $100.  I also offer free twenty min phone consultations for clients who are interested in learning more about this form of counseling. 


Clients may also choose a package of five sessions on a theme chosen in the first meeting.  These sessions may also include discussions of excerpts from selected readings.  The package price is $400. 


Each group session hour is 60 minutes long, and costs $100 + $25 per additional member.  I recommend booking a two hour appointment if there are 3+ members in the group.

"I’ve spent a fair amount of time seeing therapists and counselors over the years, but I often felt that they were not contributing much to our conversations. In my sessions with Katerina over the past few months, I’ve really felt like she has been willing and able to get engaged and bring fresh perspectives to the table. She is a perceptive listener. She draws connections easily and sees big-picture patterns in your life that can be hard to see when you are living inside of them. She asks questions that help you start to see those patterns for the first time. She is also a curious personality who is always thinking about different outlooks, and soaking up wisdom from different sources in her own life. (I especially like the philosophical thought-experiments she sometimes brings up — they are good exercises for opening up thinking about your life!) She has a very open-minded and non-judgmental way of asking about 'the way things are' in the world, or in my life, and thinking it through with me. I never feel like she is trying to push a particular agenda. One thing I want to mention is my surprise at how philosophical counseling can really help in hard times involving grief, fear, and deep frustration. Our way of 'zooming out' in the conversation, and looking at crises from a big-picture perspective, has helped make some hard times much more manageable."              -  M.V., Oregon
