In all chaos, there is a cosmos. In all disorder, a secret order.

Judatha Kline, PhD, LMFT
My specialty is helping individuals and couples who are in distress due to trauma or loss. Trauma can be violent or interpersonal, past or present. Loss is the experience of the sudden or gradual absence of a person, a relationship, an identity, a capacity, or the way things used to be. I often work with depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger, and attachment issues. My approach is generally psychodynamic, narrative, and mindfulness-based, but it also varies depending on the particular client or couple.
I earned my clinical Masters degree in Psychology/Marriage and Family Therapy at Phillips Graduate Institute in 2008 and became licensed in 2010. I completed my internship in community mental health clinics and received advanced training at the Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Study. I seek ongoing professional training and personal development to support my work as a psychotherapist.
I also completed a Masters degree in 1999 and a Doctoral degree in 2002 in Mythology with emphasis in Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. This education prepared me to see through events, images, symptoms and emotions to a deeper reality of the psyche, and to approach the care of the psyche with curiosity, appreciation, and respect.
