Dr. Kristi K. Tanaka, Psy.D., LCSW

Dr. Kristi K. Tanaka is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Texas who has been practicing since 2001. Dr. Tanaka earned her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at the Hawai’i School of Professional Psychology Program at Argosy University, Hawai’i. She earned her Master’s degree in social work from the University of Hawai’i in 2001.

The process of seeking therapy is one of courage and strength. Dr. Tanaka is honored to be on the receiving end of that process and finds it a privilege to provide you with a safe, accepting, and nurturing environment where she will take the time to hear and understand your concerns. Dr. Tanaka truly believes that this is the best way to develop a genuine, trusting relationship. This will help you work together to develop your goals and strategies to help you understand yourself, your thought processes, interpersonal relationships, and improve your quality of life. Dr. Tanaka enjoys working with adolescents and adults on various issues related to depression, anxiety, addiction, life transitions, PTSD, military combat/family issues, LGBT, co-dependency, grief/loss, and suicide as well as others. Dr. Tanaka utilizes an integrative approach to therapy grounded in humanistic theory that incorporates psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral techniques. Dr. Tanaka’s strong background and experience provides her with competencies for working with adults, adolescents, children, and families with complex lives. She works well with individuals who have dual-diagnoses, experience substance abuse issues, are severely and persistently mentally ill, and those who struggle with trauma.

Outside of work, spending quality time with her family is a priority for Dr. Tanaka whether going to a movie, going out to eat, watching a sports game, or going to a music concert. She also enjoys animals and has both a cat and a dog who bring me joy every day. She also likes to crochet as it helps her to relax.
