As a therapist I bring a creative & intuitive twist to therapy. I’m a great fit for a person who is drawn toward a non conventional approach toward traditional therapy. I value creating a warm and non intimidating environment. Although I value my education and clinical background, I see my job as an artistic one rather than a clinical one.
My job as a therapist is to point out your unique perspectives and "stories" that are dictating the choices that you make in your life. We all operate based on our belief systems, which then dictates our thoughts and actions and, ultimately, creates the results and reality of our lives. In order for us to change habits that are not working, it’s important to gain awareness around what we're telling ourselves.
I see the process of growth and change as an opportunity to learn about yourself, others and the experience of life. I believe that any sort of coaching or therapy has the potential to be a rich and "game changing" process. .
In the shop section of my site you’ll find my personal jewelry line, KIM EGEL JEWELRY, which aligns with what I preach. I feel that jewelry can help symbolize and hold our desires as we’re working toward manifesting them. I love the natural energies and healing properties that stones possess, therefore I created this line of jewelry to share with you.
In the blog section of my site I share my perspectives in order to provide inspiration for your journey. My hope is for you to find relatability, peace and connection through my writing.

Kim has been a licensed Marriage Family Therapist for over 10 years working out of her private office in North County San Diego. Her practice is based around the principles of authentic truth and overall wellness. Kim received her BA degree in Human Development from UC San Diego and holds a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. As a former semi professional track and field athlete, Kim recognizes and brings the concepts of the mind, body and spirit connection into her client sessions. She continues to train and explore many different physical activities that keep her own mind/body connection strong. Kim’s involvement within her own creative endeavors adds to her offerings as a therapist and educator to personal wellness. Beyond her therapy skills, Kim started her own jewelry line back in 2006, Kim Egel Jewelry, where the energies of natural stones and meaningful symbols of pieces help clients hold and manifest their intentions. Kim continues to explore her love for photography and travel, which she believes strengthens who she is as a therapist as she calls in clients who are creative souls and truth seekers themselves. Through her education, clinical experience and personal endeavors Kim has created her unique and intuitive approach to therapy, which benefits and guides her clients personal growth.
