Lana Katz, MA, BS – Counselor & Coach
My education consists of MA, Mental Health Counseling; New
York University and BS, Industrial and Labor Relations;
Cornell University. My experience, education, and
passion has led me to the path of helping others through
counseling and coaching.
My belief is that our ability to live a more satisfying life is
predicated on our capacity for self-awareness and
subsequently self-management. Therefore, by examining our
patterned behavior and underlying thinking,
we have an
opportunity to understand the dynamics of our distress. This
understanding, derived from insight-oriented therapy,
coupled with cognitive behavioral based techniques, can help
us transition to living a better life.
I work with clients who may be experiencing stress, anxiety,
emotional fatigue or sadness, and are at a critical point of
needing new methods to live a better life. A better way of
living includes a greater ability to manage our emotional
engagement with triggering people, events, or circumstances.
I help facilitate the process of introspection and awareness
with the goal to build and foster skills to better manage
emotional and psychological reactions. Regulating our
emotions in and of itself is a worthy goal; however, my hope
is for my clients to ultimately improve the quality of their
lives, and maintain a sense of contentment and well-being.
I have experience as a therapist and an executive coach helping
individuals to explore and develop skills in order to manage
the psychological and emotional challenges that impact
personal satisfaction, self-esteem, relationships,
professional and personal development, and personal
definitions of success.
My approach is active, engaging, and non-judgmental.
