Kimberly Locke

Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker

A person’s core beliefs are formed early in life and it can be helpful to identify these beliefs. Some
beliefs may not work for you any longer and distorted beliefs can be changed.

A person’s core beliefs are formed early in life and it can be helpful to identify these beliefs. Some
beliefs may not work for you any longer and distorted beliefs can be changed. In therapy I will reflect back
to you the ways you are changing these beliefs. I will remind you about what is in your control and what
is not. I like to share humorous stories and there is a very high chance that we will laugh together. I will
stay alongside you and respect your process as you search for a new level of personal understanding.
I have been privileged to work in many types of environments. I grew up in Southern California and was
a community outreach worker in Hollywood. It was in Hollywood where I witnessed the struggle of
individuals who experienced the devastation of poverty, oppression and violence. In the past, I worked
as a Chaplain and now I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am currently working individuals who are
dealing with severe mental illness.

I find using skills from many forms of therapy can be helpful. I use Cognitive Behavioral therapy,
Dialectical Behavioral therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
practice. I use Narrative therapy and the Strengths Perspective approach.

I feel comfortable working with people who are having symptoms related to anxiety and depression and
emotional dysregulation. I enjoy working with someone while they are in a “coming out” process. A
specific interest for me, is to work with individuals who have survived trauma, including trauma which
occurred in one’s spiritual or religious community.

Events of significant grief, loss and transition are topics that are critical to address with others. Adam
Grant and Sheryl Sandburg, in their book, “Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience and Finding
Joy”, remind us, that life forces us to come up with more than one option. It is normal to want “Option
A”, but life does not always let us have our first option. To move forward, we have to be open to other
options. If you are thinking about working with a therapist and working through all of your options, I
would look forward to the opportunity of working with you.

Understanding our relational  approach can give you a sense of how psychotherapy can help. Unlike counseling and other types of therapy, it takes a perspective that’s both deeper and broader. By focusing on emotions, it seeks to discover hidden pieces of who you are and then to understand how those pieces fit together.
