Dr. Katz-Lindquist (PSY27802) earned her B.A. in Psychology from Stanford University and her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles. She completed her clinical internship at the VA Long Beach Healthcare System. Dr. Katz-Lindquist then returned to Stanford for her postdoctoral fellowship, which she completed at Stanford’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. Following licensure, she continued her work at Stanford as a Staff Psychologist and clinical supervisor at Stanford’s Counseling and Psychological Services and as a Lecturer at the Graduate School of Education, where she taught courses on the fundamentals of counseling for aspiring student peer counselors.
In her clinical practice, Dr. Katz-Lindquist specializes in utilizing evidence-based approaches, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), in the treatment of anxiety and related disorders, including social anxiety, panic disorder, generalized anxiety, and anxiety associated with major life stressors, losses, illnesses, and transitions. Dr. Katz-Lindquist has particular expertise and interest in working with young adults who find themselves struggling to navigate the transitions and stressors of college, grad school, postdoc, or early professional life. These can be challenging times- academically, socially, and personally- and themes of perfectionism, procrastination, difficulty with work-life balance, feelings of low self-worth, and loneliness can become particularly pronounced. Using a compassionate, client-centered approach, Dr. Katz-Lindquist strives to help each of her clients learn tools for navigating stressful times, managing anxiety, and reconnecting with values that may have gotten lost amidst the stresses of day-to-day life.
