MEET YOUR THERAPIST
I'm Kim Hollingdale. I am a licensed psychotherapist (MFT #88227) with EMDR training, a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (International Association of Trauma Professionals), a Yoga Teacher and British-transplant, serving clients in Los Angeles and beyond.
I offer an holistic approach for modern times.
I offer traditional psychotherapy techniques blended with powerful tools that leverage the power of the mind-body connection to work with you rather than against you. These approaches include yoga, meditation and exercise - in addition to one of the most scientifically proven treatments currently available for traumatic distress, EMDR (a form of therapy that can very rapidly neutralize distressing memories or thoughts, without the need to recount the experience endlessly).
I work specifically with smart, successful adults who are struggling (often in secret) with the life draining experiences of anxiety, panic, depression, PTSD, and chronic physical conditions such as Fibromyalgia, IBS & Lupus. Together we focus, not just on stopping the symptoms that are interfering with your life, but on identifying and resolving the past experiences and psychological influencers that caused them to occur in the first place.
I work with my clients to produce a long term resolution to the problem, not just a temporary fix, so they can get back to living happy, fulfilling lives.
How do you know if I'm the therapist for you?
Well, for starters, if the idea of therapy makes you roll your eyes, groan and envision a poker faced middle aged man asking "how does that make you feel?" we might be a perfect fit! That's what always put me off therapy too!
Next up, give me call or send me an email and we can talk. I offer a free 15 minute consultation especially for the purpose of figuring out if we want to work together. If I'm not the one for you, I will help you find someone who is.
