Dr. Krista Regedanz, Ph.D.

About Me

I work with achievement-orientated clients who want to move beyond stress and burnout to a place of authentic purpose and calm. I am an active therapist committed to my clients healing, integration, and forward momentum. My clients’ goals are the focus of therapy. Therapy is complete when my clients’ goals are accomplished. This usually accompanies my clients reporting feeling more alive, having a sense of mastery with the choices and responsibilities they encounter, being closer to the people they care about, and experiencing more meaning and direction in their lives.

Education & Experience

+ EMDR Therapist since 2015, Certified EMDR therapist since April 2018. + Completed Level I and II of training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, greatly enhancing my EMDR practice, in 2019. + Granted California Psychology license and opened private practice in Palo Alto, California in 2009. + Earned Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in 2008. My academic research focused on how people successfully recover from job burnout. + Over fifteen years ago, I was a technology consultant at a data warehousing and business strategy firm based in Chicago and Boston working with knowledge management and strategy. I liked a lot of things about my job: working with intelligent, committed people on hard problems, presenting solutions to those problems, and the money. Then I had an epiphany: I realized I was spending my life making large, anonymous companies larger and more anonymous. This realization led to burnout, anxiety and depression. After years of exploration, I realized my life could be directed around my priorities and values rather than chasing other people’s ideas of success.
