   My name is Kirstin Carl. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in trauma, teen / adolescent, young adult, family, couples, and faith-based therapy, practicing in the Los Angeles area. My office is located in the San Fernando Valley community of Encino, California.

I know it takes courage to ask for help.

By reaching out to a therapist, you are taking the first step on your healing path toward the life you desire to live.

I am here to partner with you and walk beside you in discovering joy and gaining clarity, even in your darkest places. No matter what your age is, you still have a chance to experience freedom from the bondage of past hurts & regrets.

My approach grows out of my passionate belief in the transformative power of relationships.

I believe that our early relational experiences significantly impact our future relationships. They influence our ways of viewing ourselves and others.

Connecting with a compassionate therapist, you can heal from the pain of your past, and then open the door of possibility to more gratifying connections with others.

A secure, healthy relationship with a therapist is a starting point for building desired healthy relationships in other areas of your life, like with peers, co-workers, romantic partners, and so on. Together, we will work to increase your sense of well-being, so that you may navigate life's challenges without regressing toward old, self-defeating behaviors.

I will give you concrete tools for your successful life changes. Drawing on my experience and abilities, I offer a unique atmosphere of safety, trust, acceptance, and compassionate exploration.

I am deeply committed to providing an environment where you feel safe to uncover the hidden and tender places in your heart, while partnering with you towards deep emotional healing, growth, & lasting change.

I have devoted my professional development to creating a therapeutic experience in which the wounds & scars you carry in your heart can heal, bringing forth freedom & wholeness that previously felt out of reach.

I practice and identify with the Christian faith, for anyone who is seeking a faith-based therapeutic process.

Please call or email me for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today.
