Katrina Taschman, MS, Resident in Marriage and Family Therapy
Clients I work with: Adults individuals, couples, children, teens and their families. I offer all services in both English and Spanish.
Issues I work with: Grief and loss, life transitions, low self-worth, difficulties with trust and connection, anxiety, depression, addictive behavioral patterns, sexual and childhood trauma, cultural issues, conflicts in parent-teen relationships, communication, and blended families.
Whether I am working with individuals, couples, or families, my goal is to help people feel less burdened by negativity and more connected with themselves and their loved ones.
I serve as an active, supportive guide on your path towards feeling more calm, present, and whole.
When working with individuals, I focus on identifying patterns, resolving internal conflicts and helping clients trust and heal themselves.
I am trained in Internal Family Systems, a way of working with the brain and body to let go of buried pain and reconnect with a sense of confidence and strength. Though you can’t change painful experiences from the past, you can let go of negative emotions and beliefs associated with those experiences.
This is a useful model for developing more confidence, clearing past trauma, releasing unhealthy habits, and moving past relationship blocks.
When working with couples and families, the relationship becomes my client. I help each member identify and repair underlying feelings that get in the way of their connection. I teach them to catch their unhelpful patterns of relating, and support them in developing new ways of interacting that foster compassion and understanding.
I often work with couples or families on rebuilding trust, letting go of resentment, increasing emotional intimacy, setting emotional boundaries, or supporting one another through loss or difficult transitions.
Overall, I strive to create a trusting, warm environment where clients feel safe enough to heal. I value helping clients make lasting changes, both internally and in their relationships.
I received my master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from Virginia Tech and am currently working towards Licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I have additional advanced training in Internal Family Systems and Emotionally Focused Couple’s Therapy. Previously, I worked with survivors of immigration and sexual trauma at Northern Virginia Family Services. I also worked with children, couples and families at the Center for Family Services in Falls Church, VA, and with Spanish-speaking families at Quarternote Counseling.
