Kip is not your typical mental health clinic. We work tirelessly to do away with the stereotypes surrounding therapy that often hinder people from seeking help in the first place. We value a quick turnaround so that your first session may be as soon as within a few days – instead of waiting months when you feel bad now. We ensure that our clinicians have manageable caseloads so that they can focus on your needs, and our team meets weekly to evaluate progress with all of our clients.
Founded in 2013, Kip’s mission is guided by three main principles:
Provide training, education, and supervision for emerging psychotherapists
Make important contributions to the psychotherapy field by generating new knowledge about the psychotherapeutic process and its effectiveness
The core of Kip’s philosophy – the value of the therapeutic relationship in achieving clinical success – is reflected in our mission to describe, measure, and evaluate the therapeutic relationship in our practice, training, and research.
Our clinical training program – which includes internships for graduate students, post-graduate fellowships, and full-time licensure qualifying experience – was developed specifically in response to graduate students’ demand for solid training and practical experience in becoming a skilled clinician. Kip is able to provide services in part because our talented, emerging practitioners dedicate themselves to work tirelessly towards the development of knowledge, skills, and experience to become successful psychotherapists.
We hope that your experience with us helps to reduce the stigma associated with conversations about mental health and starts you on a path towards a richer and fuller life.
