I am Kyle Kermott, Psy.D. and I provide holistic, depth therapy to help individuals conquer depression and find the meaning and purpose they want in life.
I founded Therapy Summit because I understand how hard it can be to live with depression, and I wanted to create a groundbreaking, comprehensive therapy experience that provides lasting relief from depression.
I also understand that finding a therapist who you can trust, and who will help you, is a difficult process. You are seeking a therapist because you are in a challenging part of your life. And you need someone who is going to be understanding, compassionate, and supportive. I care deeply about providing those things for the people I work with. Life is hard right now, and I care about helping to make it easier.
I completed my Doctorate in Psychology at the American School of Professional Psychology, in San Francisco. I also completed a 2-year fellowship at Wright Institute Los Angeles, where I conducted therapy, in addition to developing and running community based programs for individuals with moderate to severe mental health issues. As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY30363), I have the highest level of training in the treatment of mental health issues. I am the 2017 recipient of the APA Scholar Award (Division 39), and have an advanced certification in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. And I am a member of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Division of Psychoanalysis of the APA.
I am also an Adjunct Professor at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology where I teach and supervise doctoral students in the Clinical Psychology Program (Psy.D.).
DR. KERMOTT'S THERAPY PHILOSOPHY
Humans are complex beings, with unconscious dynamics that shape our thoughts and feelings. When these unconscious dynamics go awry, they keep us stuck in the same patterns of dysfunctional thoughts, feelings, and relationships.
Unless you work through your unconscious dynamics, you’ll never be free from old patterns.
Unless you commit to the future you want, you’ll never create new patterns.
