Kathryn Ford, M.D.


Kathryn Ford, M.D., has been practicing psychotherapy for over 20 years. She has a private practice in Menlo Park specializing in work with couples and other relationships. She received her M.D. from Brown University Medical School and completed her psychiatry residency at The Stanford School of Medicine. In addition to her traditional training, her life-long meditation practice has informed both her life and her work, including training with teachers at Barre Center for Buddhist Studies in Massachusetts and Spirit Rock Meditation Center in California.

Ford helps couples to stay open to each other by cultivating present-moment awareness, especially Aperture Awareness™, the felt sensation of availability for connection. Both her clinical work and her writing integrate neuropsychology, mindfulness, and multiple therapy models.

She offers private consultations and workshops for couples and therapists. She is currently completing a book for couples and therapists that will present the theory and applications of her Aperture model. She lives with her husband in Little Compton, Rhode Island and Eastsound, Washington. Find her at www.kathrynfordmd.com.
