Clinical Psychology | Female

Care Philosophy

I identify myself as a cognitive-behavioral therapist, but pull from many different approaches in order to meet my patients individual needs.  I believe how we perceive or think about things affects our behavior and vice-versa.  I try to give my patients skills that will help them long after they are no longer in therapy.

Biography

I was born in Cincinnati Ohio and have lived here most of my life. I graduated from Edgecliff College which is now part of Xavier University. I attended Loyola University of Chicago for graduate school. This site does not allow me to put in my schools for medical education. Unfortunately there is no place for psychology education. I worked briefly for North Central Community Mental Health Center. I also went back to Edgecliff College as their Director of Counseling Services for a few years. I have been in private practice full or part-time since I was licensed in 1976. I worked primarily for the Behavioral Science Center Inc. which closed its doors in 2005. l also worked part-time for the Family Therapy Center for two years. We opened our practice, Cincinnati Psychological Services, LLC, in 2005. I have been working as a therapist for over 40 years, and I still love what I do. I have two adult children, Stefan Kowatsch and Katharina Schulten, and three adorable grandchildren. I often babysit them when I am off on Fridays. I have a sign in my kitchen that says "If I had known grandkids were so much fun, I would have had them first."

in Cincinnati, OH |
I've seen several psychologists and she is absolutely the best. She has given me breathing tools to work with when I feel anxiety. And this is the only doctor that these tools were most helpful for me to use. She gives me advice and sometimes changes my thoughts so I can see different views on handling situations.

Dr. Kowatsch says...

I have been in practice for over 40 years and have gathered a lot of experience in treating multiple disorders.  I have a Diplomate in  Family Psychology from the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP).  I have taught nationally in the areas of hypnosis, anxiety, dissociative disorders, trauma, abuse history and self-esteem.  I have been doing EMDR (an excellent tool for healing trauma) for over 15 years.  I have been incorporating hypnosis into my practice, where appropriate, for 25 years.
