Hi there, my name is Kristin Boyd, and my goal is to help you navigate life’s difficult transitions with strength and support; to empower you to claim your journey and make positive change. I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT114076) under the supervision of Dr. Megan Phillips (PSY28184). I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy both from Chapman University. I have experience working with adults, teens, couples and families.
I am passionate about working with moms who have experienced the unexpected; from infertility and pregnancy loss to hyperemesis gravidarum and birth trauma. As a mom who has experienced the unexpected myself, I focus on creating a safe space to heal from these difficult experiences. In addition to working with new mamas, I also specialize in working with individuals and couples adjusting to parental transitions, teens and adults struggling with self-worth, grief and loss, trauma survivors, improving familial and intimate relationships, stress management and setting healthy boundaries.
I work from a strengths-based perspective and incorporate humor in our therapeutic relationship. I aim to meet you where you are and incorporate the wisdom of family systems theories, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), attachment theory and the Satir growth model to provide you with a plan that fits your needs. I believe the therapeutic relationship can be healing in itself and I hope to create a space in which you feel supported and empowered to create the change you wish to see in your life.
