My name is Katy Bullick. I'm a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. I am a graduate of The Psychotherapy Institute's two-year post-graduate training program in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, completed in Berkeley, CA. Prior to joining the team as a Staff Therapist at TPI, I completed my traineeship and a year-long psychodynamically-focused internship at the Integral Counseling Center at Pierce Street, in San Francisco. I received my Master's degree from the California Institute of Integral Studies, in Counseling Psychology.
My background in ecology – the study of how nature resiliently adapts and grows — informs my belief that authentic relationship to self and others is the foundation of health, satisfaction and success. I believe that change and growth happen naturally, when we honor and more fully inhabit who and where we are.
I strive to be flexible, open and inclusive, and thus draw from varied psychological and philosophical orientations. I am actively engaged in anti-oppression work, both personally and professionally. I honor diversity, and accordingly welcome people from all walks of life.
I received my undergraduate degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I studied the broad global issues of our time--- our relationship to each other and to our surrounding environments and ecologies, the world's economic systems and their attendant inequalities, and social justice movements throughout history. I find this larger systems perspective invaluable in my work as a therapist. I believe we are not separate from the world around us, and that the personal is political. For me, therapy is a subtle yet powerful activism, a way to actively support the values of justice, inclusivity, diversity, creativity and compassion in the lives of my patients and in the communities to which they belong.
