Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist



Copyright © Kathleen Kesten. All rights reserved.

I graduated in 2006 with a Masters Degree in

Counseling Psychology from Santa Clara University

and have a private practice in  San Jose.

Before becoming a Marriage and Family

Therapist, I began my professional life as

a Registered Nurse and Family Nurse 

Practitioner.  I have a Master's Degree in Nursing 

from UCSF that was received in 1986.

I find my Nursing background adds to my Psychotherapy

Practice.   I believe that our physical health is deeply connected

to our mental health and I work with my clients to help them understand

this mind/body connection.

I specialize in treating anxiety, trauma, PTSD, relational issues, depression,

couples, parenting issues, transitions in life, grief, and issues surrounding chronic illness.
