Professional statementKimberly Brandon is a Marriage and Family Therapist and Professional Clinical Counselor residing in Los Angeles and accepting clients and patients throughout California. She works both somatically and psychodynamically under the supervision of Anna Howland, LMFT. Kimberly brings over a decade of experience in application of movement, mindful awareness, and eastern philosophy to her work as a psychotherapist. The belief that happiness is a birthright that can be attained with the right support, drives her passion as an embodied, relational therapist.
We need to be aware of what’s going on in order to change it. Kimberly works with individuals and couples, helping her clients come into deeper understanding of themselves and others and how past experiences can shape or taint the present moment. She helps her clients identify patterned and perhaps limiting behaviors to provide relief, and gain or restore a greater sense of agency.
Trauma theory shows that the body stores and responds to the residuals of unresolved traumatic happenings, even long after the event(s) have occurred. Kimberly utilizes various evidence-based and trauma-informed, therapy modalities in helping her clients access and process the happening and memories that lie at the root of one’s challenges. She has specialized training in Somatic Experiencing, Yoga Therapy for Addiction Recovery, Polyvagal Theory, and PACT.
Our capacity to heal is largely affected by how safe and seen we feel by those close to us. Rooted in dyadic healing and radical acceptance, Kimberly’s practice is inclusive, warm, and compassionate, supporting clients of all backgrounds. She is poly-versed, kink-aware, and LGBTQIAA+ affirming. As a holistic practitioner, Kimberly has a client-centered, whole-systems approach to therapy; she holds all facets of her clients' stories in guiding them towards actualizing radical change in their lives and relationships.
