Kim Carlson, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles
Are you feeling overwhelmed, confused, or "in a funk?" Are you at a point in your life when your ideas of where you should be don't match up with where you are? Does it seem as though there is no way out of your current situation? I can help you navigate your way through these feelings to a place where you have more clarity and choice about what you think, feel, and do. With a sensitive and non-judgmental therapist, you will gain the ability to explore the parts of yourself that will bring about the changes you desire and more.
I specialize in working with individuals and couples. Whether it is the challenges of starting out on your own, marriage and parenthood, the loss of a loved one, more fulfilling relationships, or addiction, I can help you gain the support and tools needed to feel more in control and reach your potential.
Clients have said that they appreciate my sense of humor, directness and support, curiosity and sensitivity to their unique situations, and my broad range of experiences as a dancer, artist, production executive, and parent. "What we can't face looks for us anyway," (John Trudell).
