Amy Kim, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

My work integrates psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness approaches, and I select interventions based on what will help you the most.I treat anxiety, depression, and identity (career, cultural, sexual) and relationship issues (peers, intimates, family).

My therapeutic approach focuses on reducing negative symptoms while exploring issues related to identity (cultural, sexual, career, life transitions) and relationships (peers, intimates, family) to promote a more authentic experience of oneself. My work helps people to discover who they are at their core by exploring the very issues that are blocking their true nature. I utilize a therapeutic approach that integrates psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral (CBT) and mindfulness therapies. Additionally, I am able to work with people from a deeply spiritual perspective to enhance well-being and increase purpose and meaning in one’s life. I also specializes in treating body image issues and the full gamut of disordered eating and exercise, from eating disorders to sub[clinical disordered eating rife with stress, low self-esteem and perpetual struggle.

I have extensive experience working with adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, emotion regulation, eating disorders and addictions. I have also trained at numerous universities including UCLA, USC, UC Santa Cruz and LMU, and am skilled at helping people with the challenges of being present in today’s fast-paced, pressured and often stressful world. As a mindfulness expert, I frequently present at corporations and organizations to help professionals cultivate mindfulness in their lives.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A form of talk therapy that trains clients to recognize
patterns of unproductive thinking and learn healthier responses to challenging situations.


Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR): a meditation-based therapeutic program
designed to treat anxiety, depression, stress and pain by training one’s mind to build awareness of one’s body, thoughts, behaviors by focusing intensely on the present.


Psychodynamic Therapy: A clinical approach that aims to promote self-awareness and insights by assessing how previous experiences have influenced current and ongoing behaviors. In this process clients gain perspective into behaviors and relationship issues that they may have not be fully cognizant of.
