Dr. Katrina Sanford uses African centered healing approaches to promote collective healing and wellness. She is a Clinical Psychologist based in Seattle, WA. Dr. Sanford is in private practice with specialties in Trauma and Sex Therapy. Dr. Sanford uses her trauma informed background to challenge and support social injustice issues for her clients and community, particularly racially induced inequities. Dr. Sanford helps her clients to work towards decolonizing their minds, bodies, and souls from Euro-centric ways of being that continue to negatively impact our whole selves. Becoming our better selves involves breaking down the historical inaccuracies the dominant culture has created about all of us. Additionally, Dr. Sanford helps empower her community to work through the inter-generational traumas/barriers that has left our people with a lack of understanding of how truly amazing we are. Dr. Sanford sees it as her purpose to aid her community in developing a deeper self-love that is necessary for true growth and evolution in this life.
