Katy Alaniz, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor, Group Practice Founder/Owner
About Me: Hello there! I’m Katy. I’m a Dallas-based full-time telehealth therapist in private practice, serving all of Texas.
After completing my formal education, I spent 6 years working with eating disorders (and all co-occurring disorders) at Center for Discovery, and then one and a half years at Youth & Family Counseling, working with sexuality issues, first offenders, adolescents, self-harm, depression, school problems, family issues, gender identity, LGBTQ+/SOGI, and couples. I then spent a year in a Case Manager position, where I advocated with insurance companies to ensure that clients receiving eating disorder treatment in Texas were getting services authorized by their insurance plans.
I’m a mom to a pretty bad-ass 11-year-old, a best friend to several gorgeous people, and a partner (I’m polyamorous, and have two partners currently). My friends, family, clients, and partners are the most important things on the planet to me. I have two cats, Rocco & Lilith, who are terrible, and I love them. I am a Health At Every Size provider. Four things that always make me happy: good coffee, The Office, a good eyeshadow palette, and fresh hydrangeas 🙂

My Specialties (for ages 13+):
I am certified in TF-CBT (trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy) and practice often out of that mode of therapy. I also lean heavily on feminist theory, the enneagram, and reality theory, although I change things up to fit each client that I’m working with. I am also currently working on my ADHD-CCSP certification, which will make me a Certified ADHD Specialist.
