Meet Katherine Sellwood, PsyD

Hi, my name is Dr. Katherine Sellwood. I'm a clinical psychologist. I have been in practice since 1996. I have worn many hats over those years – I have taught graduate school, undergrads, school counseling, clinic work, non-profit work. Most importantly though has been my private practice when it comes to the area of divorce. Whether we're aware of it or not, as psychologists, we're drawn to this profession for personal reasons. And because of my parents' high-conflict divorce when I was a young adult, I naturally got drawn into this profession. I love what I do and absolutely, I love my husband. It's funny though, people tell him... or people ask him all the time, "What's it like to be married to a psychologist? Does she psychoanalyze you all the day?" And he said, "Are you kidding me? She listens all day. When she comes home, all she wants to do is talk, talk, talk, talk, talk." So he has to be the one who listens.
