About Dr. Kate Truitt


My Mission

Hello and welcome. My name is Dr. Kate Truitt, I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY26309) practicing in Pasadena, CA. I have dedicated my life to supporting individuals as they learn, heal, and grow into living their most fulfilled life. I believe in the brain’s ability to transcend and transform the complex and beautiful relationship between nature and nurture. I have chosen to dedicate my life to the investigation and development of tools for personal transformation and empowerment. I truly believe that when we choose to let every moment of adversity strengthen and empower us we are choosing to be our strongest and most empowered selves. Through my years of experience I have learned that building a sustainable and fulfilled life begins with "Choosing You."


Experience and Professionalism

My clinical practice and scientific studies have led me to specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, traumatic stress, and PTSD. My research focuses on brain health during the recovery process and treatment outcomes. I actively honor the belief that each individual is unique and dynamic and seek to connect with each client in a way that is safe and comfortable for where they are presently in their healing process. I strive to create an empowering environment for my clients, guiding them through their transformational journey as they seek and obtain their fulfilled life.

I am the Founder of Dr. Kate Truitt & Associates  and the CEO of the Trauma Counseling Center of Los Angeles. We have offices in Pasadena, West Hollywood, Santa Monica, and Studio City where my teams are trained in the most advanced neuroscience based techniques for healing trauma and stress. Come experience what it is like to have the power of healing in your own hands. It's time for better living empowered with neuroscience! 


Empowering Healing with Neuroscience

I was the first Certified Practitioner and am the first Certified Trainer of the Havening Techniques™in Los Angeles, California. I also serve as the Global Coordinator of Continuing Education for the Havening Techniques professional community. Havening Techniques™ is a powerful treatment for traumatically encoded life experiences. Havening is an incredibly fast, efficient, and effective tool that heals the brain. As a result, the symptoms of trauma diminish and, frequently, permanently disappear. I am honored to release my clients from traumatic experiences that have resulted in the development of PTSD, depression. phobias, anxiety, anger difficulties, eating disorders, and many more ailments that have impacted them for years, sometimes decades. My clients report feeling empowered and stronger at the end of treatment as their brains heal and finally process the traumatic experiences that have kept them psychologically paralyzed.  Learn more in the book chapter Fifteen Minutes to Freedom in the book by the same title ​Fifteen Minutes to Freedom by Harry Pickens.
