Professional statement

Kim Dioszegi is a Marriage and Family Therapist based in north Phoenix, AZ, who works with adolescents, adults, families, and couples. Many of her clients struggle to feel connected in their relationships or at peace in their daily lives, and struggle to challenge feelings of shame, unworthiness, or perfectionism. Kim is particularly skilled in working with clients facing traumatic experiences, relationship distress, and performance anxiety (such as in work, school, and sports) where symptoms of OCD, self-doubt, conflict, apathy, and anxiousness can emerge.

Kim’s approach is rooted in trauma-informed systemic therapy. She utilizes EMDR, IFS, and integrates family therapy with the recognition that people do not operate in a vacuum but instead past and present relationships, worldview, and societal factors influence one's self-perception and mental health. She works to help clients understand their physical response to stressors, and begin to reframe the narrative of their life in a way that increases self-confidence and compassion.

Kim completed her undergraduate degree at Whitworth University and master's degree at Fuller Theological Seminary. Prior to becoming a clinician she applied wilderness therapy techniques as a mountaineering and sea kayaking guide in BC, Canada, and worked with at-risk youth in a faith-based organization. She has experience working in intensive outpatient programs for eating disorders, self-harm, OCD, and social anxiety, with a focus on complex trauma and PTSD.

Kim's office is located off of Shea and the 51. Additionally she offers telehealth services for those whose needs and goals are conducive to online treatment.


Message to clients

The thought of reaching out for therapy can be intimidating. To expose yourself to a stranger feels unnatural and vulnerable - especially if you are seeking therapy believing something is broken that needs fixing.

Stress, loss, anxiety, apathy, body image distress, broken relationships, and past hurts are just some of the challenges we face these days. All of us can benefit from an outside perspective where someone is trained to shed new light on old problems -- yet, why is it so hard for us to ask for help?

Before, only those with "serious" problems went to therapy. Today, however, only the brave and committed do it. It takes courage, maturity, and an open mind to face and challenge many of the patterns that have become commonplace. In these times when the unknown seems to take over our daily life, the support required at the right time is worth more than any later intervention.

I believe that whatever situation you find yourself in, it is not my role to "fix" you, but to help you understand what barriers are preventing you from living your most authentic life. Finding the right therapist for you (whether with me or with one of the countless other mental health clinicians in your city) is an important part on your journey towards authenticity and healing. I look forward to walking this road with you.
