Professional statement

Abby Krom is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA who specializes in anxiety, work stress, body image, relationship issues, and mindfulness. Many of her clients are high functioning but are struggling with internal insecurities. For some, nothing feels "good enough," leading to more and more stress and worry. Some of her clients are single and wondering how to find the right partner; others may be in a relationship, and finding themselves having the same arguments over and over again.

As an interpersonal therapist, Abby specializes in helping clients get "unstuck." Her therapy approach is warm, direct and includes humor. Though therapy can take us to emotionally vulnerable places we can also experience so many more positive emotions as well. She has additional training in Gestalt Therapy through the Pacific Gestalt Institute and has received training in Mindfulness, DBT and Brainspotting.
In addition to therapy, Abby presents workshops focusing on managing stress, increasing mindfulness and challenging perfectionism.

Her office is in Los Angeles and located near Venice, Marina Del Rey, Culver City and Mar Vista. In addition to in-office sessions, she offers remote video sessions.


Message to clients

You’re ready for a change and although you may not be sure how therapy will help you, you are wanting to see what’s possible for your life. Therapy with me provides a space away from your family and friends to really express what’s going on for you. It’s a non-judgmental space but I am an active therapist. I listen with curiosity and offer feedback based on what I am hearing. It’s important to have a dialogue and explore what is going on for you in new ways.
