Dr. Kia A. Watkins, PsyD

Dr. Kia Watkins is a licensed clinical psychologist in Arizona with extensive clinical training treating a broad range of psychological issues including depression, anxiety, complex developmental trauma such as childhood sexual abuse and neglect, historical and multigenerational trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), grief/bereavement, existential concerns, identity conflict and confusion, and interpersonal distress.

Her client care model centers the voices and needs of those individuals who enter into the therapeutic space. Her approach emphasizes establishing a meaningful and unique connection with each of her clients and cultivating a compassionate, respectful, and accepting environment in which clients are given the opportunity to re-discover their own strengths. Dr. Watkins treatment philosophy asserts that the possibility of profound healing exists in each therapeutic encounter not only through safe, sensitive, and attentive exploration of psychological wounds but also in the recognition of one’s innate courage, wisdom, and resiliency.

In her personal life, Dr. Watkins enjoys spending quality time with her nieces and nephews, writing poetry, listening to music, learning chess, and watching football and basketball.
