KV Franklin is a passionate therapist who will hold space for her clients and stand by them through life’s toughest moments. Sometimes a person just needs to be authentically seen and heard, accepted for where he/she/they are in the moment, and supported in the journey towards a life in which they can thrive. So, KV engages individuals, couples, and children in empathetic, client-centered therapy to help each client get closer to their best version of themselves. With a heart for human rights and holistic wellness, KV’s specialties include working with complex trauma, life transitions, depression, anxiety, adverse childhood experiences, relationship issues, and grief and loss. She has a background in crisis management with culturally and ethnically diverse peoples, as well as a history of supporting communities that have been historically marginalized. So, she especially welcomes those with personal or family backgrounds that include disabilities, neurodiversity, veteran status, BIPOC, LGBTIQ, ACES, refugee or asylum-seeking histories, chronic illness, and survivors of child abuse and sex trafficking.
KV is deeply humanistic in her orientation and takes an integrative approach to therapy. Building a healthy sense of self, learning to leverage personal strengths, and embracing ways to make meaning in life are key to the healing process. She draws from a dynamic range of evidence-based practices in order to address the unique needs of each client. She uses techniques inspired by Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Expressive Arts Therapy, and others. As an Associate Clinical Social Worker, KV believes in a client’s worth as an individual and a client’s right to holistic health.

Registered Associate Professional Clinical Counselor, License #: 11093
I am passionate about helping clients form a life that represents their authentic selves. I have received my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Mount Saint Mary’s University, Los Angeles (MSMU) and my clinical experience include training at the Maple Counseling Center within a psychodynamic approach. My work focuses on gaining awareness as I believe growth and healing come from within. Every person is unique, embarking on their own journey and I strive to develop a collaborative approach best suited for creating the lives clients seek. With a background in art, I enjoy helping clients recognize the power of expression as they navigate the ups and downs of life. I am currently in an art therapy training program because I believe art can further enhance the therapeutic process providing a greater understanding of one’s state of being, allowing for deeper insight into oneself.
My experience includes working with diverse populations to discover individually-based coping skills specific to their needs relative to anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, trauma, and relationships. I provide a variety of therapeutic approaches including psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, and art therapy while being dedicated to providing a warm and safe environment. I am grateful to be a part of my client’s journey as they aspire to be their best self in leading a life committed to their well-being.
