Kyle Bond holds an MEdT from the University of Hawai’i, an M.A in Positive Developmental Psychology from Claremont Graduate University, and is currently finishing his Ph.D. in Positive Developmental Psychology (anticipated Spring 2018).
Prior to his graduate work in psychology, he taught intermediate English for three years through Teach For America; in graduate school, he served as the Clinical Director of a research lab at Pomona College, taught classes at Harvey Mudd College and Cal State Fullerton, and has worked with individuals in all developmental stages of life.
In pursuing clinical work and receiving extensive therapy training at two private practices in Claremont, he has specialized in working with adolescents, parents, and adults, providing individual and group therapy with an underlying foundation in attachment theory. He utilizes evidence-based practices in his work, blending techniques found in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Family Systems Theory, and best practices informed by the latest attachment research. He specializes in working through depression, anxiety, relationship issues, teenage developmental issues, and trauma—and enjoys seeing his clients move through obstacles, no matter how large, towards clarity, agency, and greater success in whichever areas are most important to them.
He sees therapy as the best gift one can provide oneself, or to one’s child, and he is passionate about making sure each person he’s lucky enough to work with feels supported, heard, understood, and able to grow.
