Kathryn Ventry, LMFT


Owner of Peace Within * Anxiety, Trauma & OCD Treatment

5000 Windplay Drive
Suite 2
El Dorado Hills, California 95762

Narrative of Services:

I counsel individuals, couples and families. I have advanced training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and extensive training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, and Gottman Method Couple Therapy. I find it useful to explore self-defeating beliefs that keep people stuck, and to do Exposure Therapy and ERP gradually and with compassion. I’m trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and include mindfulness and self-compassion skills. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy to assist my clients who have survived trauma. My goal is to bring you relief in a timely manner, leading to healing and wellness.

Training Description:

I am a behavioral specialist at The Anxiety Treatment Center (ATC) of Sacramento and in private practice in El Dorado Hills. I treat children through older adults, couples and families. I received training in Exposure Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) from a member of the IOCDF Scientific Advisory Board. I specialize in anxiety disorders, OCD, trauma, PTSD and couples therapy. I served in the military followed by a career in a Fortune 500 healthcare company. I have extensive training in a variety of disease states, medications, psychotropics and pharmacology. When needed, I coordinate care with primary care providers and psychiatrists.
