Dr. Karina Kim


About Me

Such a pleasure to meet you. I am happy you want to work on goals to change your life. I value change, hope, optimism, compassion, positivity, gratitude, and learning from those who have overcome multiple barriers.

Psychotherapy Specializations include: depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, phobias, sexual abuse/sexual assault, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), traumatic brain injury, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder, social communication issues, relationships, adoption, LGBTQ, work stress, childhood abuse and neglect, bipolar disorder, psychosis, schizophrenia, substance use disorders, and working with children and adolescents.

I believe that a therapist who has a diverse range of work experience can help clients on a deeper level. Thus, I have gained other experiences (besides providing psychotherapy for 22 years), including administration and management, implementing and auditing compliance measures, authorizing inpatient detoxification for substance use disorders and acute inpatient mental health admission in managed care settings, clinical supervision, crisis intervention, suicide prevention, teaching, training, developing programs, writing and implementing policies, community outreach, and in-home therapy services.

Counseling Techniques: Psychodynamic, Gestalt, EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Trauma Focused CBT, Affect Regulation, and Solution-Focused Therapy.

I look forward to getting you to where you want to go as quickly as possible.
