Katerina Prossr, PhD- Clinical Psychologist

Dr. Prossr is a licensed clinical psychologist who received a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Master’s in Social Work from California State University of Sacramento and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from California Graduate Institute in Irvine.

Dr. Prossr was born and raised in a communist Czechoslovakia for 13 years. After escaping her country with her family, she spent a year in a refugee camp in Yugoslavia, where she met many families from various countries. This experience gave her a great understanding of coming to a country not speaking English, the acculturation process necessary to survive in a dominant culture she knew nothing about, and the struggles and hardship that came along with starting a new life and leaving the rest of her family behind. Her life experience taught her to have a great appreciation for diversity and she has developed a strong passion for other cultures and their beliefs.

Her experience includes working for 14 years with adults with severe psychiatric illnesses, such as schizophrenia/schizoaffective d/o, bipolar d/o, major depression, OCD, anxiety, and various personality d/o. She also has experience with the geriatric outpatient PHP and in the adolescent inpatient unit. This included dual diagnosis, symptom/mood/stress management, relationship building, community integration, conflict resolution, medication compliance, relapse prevention, bereavement, sexual/physical abuse issues, and crisis intervention. Past experiences include working in a level 14 group home with children and providing services in a skilled nursing home focusing mainly on psychological testing and mental status testing for use of dementia drugs. Her work experience also includes individual/family therapy in an outpatient clinic with children and adolescents (ages 3-17). Certificates obtained include drug and alcohol certification, and children/adults anger management therapy certification. Dr. Prossr uses the cognitive behavioral therapy approach because she truly believes that changing one’s thinking changes one’s behavior.
