Justin Kram, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
LIC NO. 86866
Justin Kram is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and graduate from the California Institute of Integral Studies with nearly 10 years of experience working with children, teens, adults and older adults, in every stage of life. Justin believes that effective psychotherapy strengthens a developing ability to trust and express evolving personal truths more fully and compassionately. We learn to gather our awareness and acknowledge our feelings. We become more comfortable listening to our intuition and expressing ourselves in new and surprising ways. Justin believes that the competing demands of modern life, with all of their contradictory pushes and pulls, often contribute to painful confusion and disconnection. Justin offers a safe, creative space to consider and recalibrate our relationship to the internal and external beliefs and influences that shape our experience in the world. He maintains a deep reverence for the unique path that each of us has taken in exploring, getting lost, setting, and achieving goals in this precious and precarious life.
He employs an eclectic therapeutic approach grounded in relational psychodynamic theory which posits that 1) there is much occurring beneath the surface of our lives that can rise to conscious awareness and 2) that trauma occurs in relationships and can heal, with care and attention, in conscious relationships. Justin also draws in his work from evidence-based practices including: CBT, ACT, DBT and mindfulness modalities. While Justin considers the psychological theories behind his work, he holds them lightly in the room, believing most fundamentally in the importance of an adaptive, culturally-sensitive, non-judgmental stance with his clients.
