About Me

My name is Warren Kim, LCSW and I am a psychotherapist in Los Angeles. I am a practicing clinician who has had the good fortune to work with individuals and families, providing them with a safe and unconditional supportive environment for over a decade. 

My professional journey began when I received my undergraduate degree in psychology at UCLA and my Masters in Social Work at USC. My education fortified by my life experiences are what shaped my desire to become a therapist. 

I started my clinical career at a community mental health agency, Long Beach Mental Health Center (LBMHC) in 2012. There I worked as a psychiatric social worker where I was trained and certified in evidenced based practices including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Using these methods, I treated individuals who struggled with anxiety, depression, trauma and self-harming behaviors. I had the privilege of working with clients throughout the course of their treatment, giving them the tools and insight to find and live with clarity in their life. 

In 2017, I joined Kaiser Permanente's Behavioral Health Department at the Los Angeles Medical Center. I came onboard as a therapist where I primarily worked with adults who struggled with transitional issues, relationship problems and stress. My work at LBMHC & Kaiser has given me the experience and  expertise to continue my life's mission to improve my clients' mental health, wellness, and quality of life.

If given the opportunity to work with you, I will provide an integrative approach and tailor each treatment to your individual needs. Using a strength based approach coupled with compassion, I will provide a judgement free space where you are able to openly discuss anything on your mind (refer to FAQ for limitations to confidentiality). Our sessions are guided to help you find the root and triggers of your discomfort and/or pain, learn practical coping mechanisms to manage your feelings and develop emotional and spiritual growth in your journey.

 

If you are interested in taking the next step towards a stronger and clearer you, please feel free to reach out to me.  I look forward to hearing from you.

 

With Warmth & Gratitude, 

Warren Kim , LCSW
