Dr. Kai Syvertsen is a licensed clinical psychologist with almost 20 years of clinical experience. He has been providing psychotherapy and psychological evaluations at Dr. Robin Lowey & Associates for 14 years and he currently serves as the Clinical Director of the practice. After receiving his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Connecticut, he earned his PhD at the University of Wyoming and completed an internship at Sharp Mesa Vista Psychiatric Hospital in San Diego.
Trained in cognitive behavioral psychotherapy and empirically-supported mindful techniques, Dr. Syvertsen’s fundamental goal is to heighten each client’s overall happiness and sense of meaning and purpose. The pain caused by depression, anxiety, trauma, or relationship turmoil can be an opportunity for growth and change. Therapy is a supportive, collaborative journey of shifting unhealthy patterns of thinking and behaving. Our day-to-day lives no longer need to be dominated by loneliness, worry, regret, and longing; but instead joy, calm, connectedness to others, and enthusiasm.
