KRIS YI, Ph.D., Psy.D.
Dr. Kris Yi, psychologist and psychoanalyst

Welcome to My Practice!

Have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome? Sometimes, seeking help from a licensed expert is the best way to put things into perspective. Your well-being and mental strength are my number one priority as a committed, professional psychologist in Pasadena, and I’m happy to guide you through all of life’s challenges. I offer all my patients the attention and care they deserve and have all the tools and expertise to help you get ahead.

Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalyst

I specialize in working with adults from diverse backgrounds in individual psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and couples/family therapy. A veteran psychotherapist with nearly thirty years of clinical experience, my expertise includes relationship difficulties, self-esteem issues, depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and cross-cultural dynamics.  I also love  working with academics and graduate students, as I understand intimately the challenges of academia, dissertation writing, work-life balance, and management of relationship with advisors and colleagues.  


I'm a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst (License No. 11913) in private practice in Pasadena, California.

In our therapy sessions, we will co-create an environment where you can safely explore your current issues and difficulties in work and relationships. To achieve the meaningful changes that you desire, I believe that our therapeutic relationship must be founded on safety and trust. Therefore, our work will be collaborative, requiring a strong commitment on both our parts.

Whatever your individual needs and experiences are, we will pursue a flexible and pragmatic approach to your therapy, as I believe each patient’s needs are unique and therefore require an individualized responsiveness. Whether your troubles derive from depression, anxiety, lack of self-esteem, shame, relationship difficulties, eating disorders, trauma, or other difficulties, I have over 25 years of experience and training to help you through these trying times.

If you would like to learn more, I welcome you to contact me to arrange a New Patient Consultation at your convenience to discuss how we can work together to create lasting fulfillment in your personal life and work.


Your mental health and well-being are important to me. I love helping my patients develop the tools they need to cope with all of life’s challenges, and I get great satisfaction from seeing them heal and thrive. Contact me today to see how I can help you, and let’s discuss the wide range of options at your disposal.
