Practice

Kathryn Bikle, LMFT

As a licensed MFT my passion is to assist adults and children connect with their deeper selves, explore their innate creativity, and support healthy, thoughtful choices for their lives and relationships. My approach includes depth psychology techniques such as dream work, journaling, art therapy, and sand tray. I employ mindfulness techniques, Authentic movement, Somatic Experiencing Trauma work, and Labyrinth movement meditiation to encourage a deepening awareness of the body as I support my clients’ psychological growth and healing of emotional wounds. My extensive background in the theater arts provides me with a deep appreciation for the creative process and its value as a therapeutic tool for awareness, healing, and personal growth. My work with couples strongly emphasizes teaching tools for effective communication, and interpersonal skills.

In addition to working with individuals, couples, families, and groups, I offer a variety of workshops for personal growth and professional development. I have offices in both Pasadena and in Monrovia where I am a member of the LIFE Counseling Group, and adjunct supervisor for Interns and Trainees at The Place Within.
