Kevin Troutt, LMFTA
Kevin IS accepting new clients at this time.
Kevin believes that even the most stuck places make sense. He takes this stance to gain fresh understandings of our protective moves, honoring them until they melt away and allow for new forms of connection.
Kevin’s work is grounded in Emotionally Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Trauma-informed care. Each of these approaches emphasize a non-pathologizing viewpoint, creating safety to take risks to create new emotional experiences.
“The core of my therapeutic approach is connection. I strive to create a safe, accepting, and attuned space for my clients, no matter where they are in their journey.”
