Relationships are as important to us as food and water. They can strengthen us, like a vitamin, or weaken us, like the flu. You are only as good in relationships as the relationships you have been in. As your therapist I can assist you in many ways. I can help you learn more about yourself, increase both self-compassion and compassion for others, and heal past trauma. Together, we can explore how to feel more connected to yourself, your values, and people you care about.

When individuals, couples, families or children make the difficult decision to come to therapy they are usually feeling stuck and often scared. Each of us has our own strength and wisdom which we don't see when we are troubled. My goal is for us to work together to rediscover those qualities. I use a cattail plant as a symbol of how I see therapy. Why? Cattails are found stuck in a marsh and often regarded as weeds. But when looked at carefully they are graceful and strong. Let me help you find your strength and grace.

The creation of my practice, Kimberly Koljat LMFT, is in service of the transformative power of relational play with children, adolescents, adult individuals, and families. Though I specialize in working with children 3 - 12 years of age, I advocate that individuals of all ages, 0-100 years old, can benefit from the work of play. Yes, that means I utilize play with adults in session, too! Rooted in attachment, neurobiology, and client-centered work, I use experiential methods to help those who feel disconnected from others and themselves find the link playfully back to being in relationship to what matters most.

I believe in an integral, post-modern approach to therapy that builds on the successes of conventional therapeutic methods and practices and incorporates understanding of trauma, social justice theory, somatics, attachment, neuro-diversity and more. I work with people of all ages. With children, I have focused on issues like emotional regulation, ADHD, and autism. With adults I work in a very somatic, relational way to address issues ranging from trauma to anxiety to concerns about the world.

I completed my Masters of Social Work at Smith College School for Social Work. I received my post-masters training at Kaiser Permanente Oakland Adult Psychiatry, where I practiced individual adult and group psychotherapy for six years before transitioning into private practice. Working at Kaiser afforded me experience with a wide range of client concerns and gave me the opportunity to work with clients from a wide range of socioeconomic, cultural, and relationship backgrounds. Before pursuing my MSW, I practiced as a corporate transactional attorney at two Bay Area law firms after completing my JD at Harvard Law School.

Life in the time of Coronavirus; we're living through a historic global health crisis that's indescribably stressful. The blindingly fast pace of life has come to a grinding halt. We're accumulating losses, some more than others. Everyone's survival stress and anxiety about sickness, death, insecurity, uncertainty and loss have come roaring to the surface. If you have pre-existing PTSD, depression, OCD or anxiety, you may feel particularly affected. You may find you're relying more on compulsive behaviors to cope with stress. While it may feel surreal, this is actually a great time to start therapy.

New life roles or transitions can leave us feeling isolated, overwhelmed, disconnected from friends and family, and anxious. You can feel simultaneously stuck and untethered when you just want to feel grounded and sure of yourself. Does the pressure of your new role leave you paralyzed, nervous, and incredibly lonely? Are you wondering if you can ever have "the old you" back? Maybe your relationship has been leaving you feeling unfulfilled, confused, lonely, and stuck. You want to feel supported, heard, and safe in your commitment to stay.

Humans are pack animals. We depend on our relationships to survive. So, when we are deprived of the love and care of supportive relationships, we find ways to meet these needs in their absence. These strategies help us minimize our pain allowing us to survive childhood and navigate adulthood. Now you are finding that these survival strategies are becoming problems of their own. Do you struggle with letting your guard down, even for the people you love? Is it difficult to put your needs over the needs of others? Have you developed habits of avoiding "feeling" and find that you are disconnected from the world around you?

I offer innovative solutions for complex challenges. I focus on the kind of mental health challenges that may threaten your hopes and dreams. Maybe people are using labels that seem chronic and don’t accurately reflect either what you are experiencing or what you’ve been through! Maybe you’ve had experience with institutionalized care and you don’t want to go back! Or maybe you are a family member and don't know how to help. When there is no simple answer for anxiety, depression, emotional pain, social exclusion, abuse or addictive behavior, perhaps it is time to go a little deeper.

With over 25 years of working with children, adolescents and parents, my therapy style is empowering, strength based, compassionate, creative and fun. I love working with tweens, teens and young adults who inspire me every day because growing up and finding one’s own way in life is hard, exciting and full of possibilities. I have a great deal of experience working in multicultural and LGBTQ supportive contexts. I am particularly skilled in working with those recovering from trauma, managing strong emotions, living with Autism or ADHD, exploring identity or those looking for more purpose, direction, peace, creativity or perspective.

I wholeheartedly believe that the wounding that happens in relationship can be healed in relationship. Therapy with me is relational, humanistic, empathic, body-oriented, mindful and experiential. I will support you as you build and discover what's most meaningful to you and surrender that which no longer serves you. Together we can walk into the scary questions. We can strengthen your access to the wise observer and guide that already exists within you. By bringing compassion and curiosity to all of your different parts, we can rediscover what home means to you, together. I work well with queer youth, couples and families.
