Our History










Counseling SDC is a private counseling practice built from a small step and a large leap. Counseling SDC, started with a simple conversation between us two therapists; myself, Kathryn Krug, LMFT and co-founder, Michelle Park, LMFT. Both, with a history of providing counseling to the community through large public companies. There, we worked tirelessly to meet the needs of our clients We saw, we diagnosed, and we treated! But, something was missing. 

There was not a lot of room in the corporate counseling process for us to reach our clients on a human level.


Have you ever tried to get help but cannot seem to connect to the person helping you? 

Did you know it is possible to receive counseling without an official “diagnosis”?

These are 2 of the ideas that drew us to the beauty of private practice counseling. We see the freedom to personally connect and bring the humor and light that makes us human back to therapy. We vowed to set out and make a private practice focused on relationships. First and foremost, our relationship with the community, and then with each individual client. 

Counseling SDC Values Technology and we use it to empower our clients. We offer tele-counseling options for all levels of therapy

Counseling SDC Values your Trust and Privacy. That is why we do not submit any of your session note documentation to a third party biller, insurance or private payers. 

Counseling SDC Values Communication! That is why our website is available for scheduling 24/7. We also offer a free 10 minute consultation appointment to assess your counseling needs. 

Counseling SDC Values Risk-taking. That is why we are opening, Pandemic or not, to serve you. And it is our commitment to stay with you during perhaps the biggest risk of all, opening your life up for someone to see. 

Counseling SDC Values Competence and Efficiency. We commit to always have the most up-to-date training and certifications possible. We pledge to personally tailor treatment to your needs.
