Heather Katafiaz Ph.D., IMFT-S

AAMFT Approved Supervisor


My name is Heather Katafiasz, PhD (AKA "Dr.K"). I am the owner of Family Connection 2, LLC. I am an independently licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. In addition to working with individuals, I specialize in working with couples and families. I believe that clear communication is the key to feeling connected and satisfied within relationships. It is often that lack of communication, whether it be due to individual symptoms (ex: anxiety, depression), traumas in relationships (such as infidelity), or simply too many life tasks that take time away from prioritizing our relationships, that leads to conflict and a feeling of disconnection or dissatisfaction. In therapy, I will work with you on improving your communication and attempt balance the perspective of each member of the couple or family, so that everyone feels heard and understood.

    I have experience working with individuals, couples and families who struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, substance use in couples and families, betrayals of trust, conflict, and many other emotional, cognitive, physiological, and behavioral struggles.
