Incorporating cognitive restructuring as well as behavioral changes, we've helped many in the High Desert area with their therapy needs.

A process through which the client works one-on-one with one of our trained and licensed therapists in a safe, caring and confidential environment. This service allows the client to explore their feelings, beliefs or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories or events, identify areas of their lives they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals and work toward desired change.

Couples counseling is a type of psychotherapy. This service helps partners and spouses of all types recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. At Kemp Individual & Family Counseling, Inc, you and your spouse or partner will work with one of our trained and licensed therapists to strengthen and build your relationship and gain a better understanding of each other.

As a couple and together with your therapist, you will learn and develop tools to work through tough issues such as: communication problems, sexual difficulties, conflicts around parenting or blended families, substance abuse, anger, and infidelity. We are able to accommodate working couples who may need appointments after work. We are open evenings and Saturdays, call our office at 760-810-0000 to make an appointment.

Family Counseling is a type of psychological service that can help family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. Here at Kemp Individual & Family Therapy, Inc. you will work with trained and licensed therapists and may address specific issues such as marital or financial problems, conflict between parents and children, or the impact of substance abuse or a mental illness on the entire family.

Family Counseling is often short term and it may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family's situation. Family therapy sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after you're done going to therapy sessions.

Family Counseling can be useful in any family situation that causes stress, grief, anger or conflict. It can help you and your family members understand one another better and learn coping skills to bring you closer together.

Child Counseling is a type of therapy that focuses on young children, teens, and adolescents with one or more mental illness. It also provides aid to youths, who have experienced trauma, and/or who are experiencing a dysfunctional or stressful home environment. Many of the issues these children face mimicking the issues adults face in their day-to-day lives. Some of these common issues include anxiety, depression, and grief. The goal of child counseling, however, is to break down problems into manageable parts, so children can better understand and cope with them.

At Kemp Individual & Family Therapy, Inc. we have trained and licensed professionals who will offer invaluable insight into your child’s social and emotional development and mental health. These individuals have the knowledge and expertise to recognize, identify, pinpoint, assess, diagnose, and treat a wide range of mental health conditions, adjustment issues (divorce, new school, bullying, grief, etc.), and psychological distress. More specifically, our child counselors have been trained to “get into the minds of children,” so they can help them make sense of what is going on in their minds, bodies, and lives

Navigating life’s transitions can feel exhausting at times, and it can feel like our regular methods of coping aren’t helping as much, or we are worried about judgment when reaching out to others.

Life was once described to me as a dark room full of furniture, walking through it while occasionally stumbling upon various pieces that you were unaware were there. Sometimes, while walking with purpose towards your destination, you’ll unexpectedly hit your pinky toe on a sharp corner of a table and experience excruciating pain. Psychotherapy was then described to me as walking through that dark room with a candle light, slowly finding out what pieces of furniture are placed in your path and how to walk around them, while slowly placing candles along your way. I am optimistically hopeful that venturing together on this journey of self-discovery, you’ll find the experience of lighting candles along your way to be a fulfilling one that provides you with meaning and purpose.
