Hi, I'm Leah

Leah Katz, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist practicing in Portland, Oregon.
Originally from New York, she completed her doctorate training at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology. While living in New York, Dr. Katz worked at a community clinic where she led several groups, treated individuals and couples in therapy, and taught a course in Health Psychology at Stern College for Women.

She currently works in a group practice where she specializes in working with teenage girls and women, with a focus on treating anxiety and depression. She utilizes a hybrid of cognitive behavioral, ACT, and mindfulness techniques in her therapy work. She has gone on several mindfulness retreats and incorporates mindfulness concepts into the therapeutic work she does. She also facilitates mindfulness groups for the broader community.

Dr. Katz is passionate about girls’ and women’s mental health, and helping women navigate challenges to live deeply connected and fulfilled lives. She is in the process of publishing her first book, which will be released later this year.
