About Me

Hello and welcome! My name is Kal Zeryihun. I am a psychotherapist, licensed clinical social worker, and founder of CreateWellness. It is my intention for our sessions to have significant and lasting value to you.

My clinical practice has been primarily oriented in mobile mental health care, also referred to as “street medicine," providing treatment for populations who are considered high-risk due to mental and physical health conditions and other social vulnerabilities. It has always been and continues to be important to me to reach individuals and groups who historically have had the most barriers accessing effective and recovery based mental health treatment. In continuing with my practice of bringing care to people wherever they are, I am excited about bringing holistic mind and body integrated mental health care to individuals on an accessible telehealth platform. 

I provide evidenced-based and emerging neuroscience based treatments to individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD and other mental health conditions including those struggling with substance use and experiences of single incident and complex trauma. 

In addition to my clinical work, I have a deep interest and commitment to community and environmental wellbeing.  In my personal time, I enjoy writing poetry, seeking attention from my two cats, spending time with people I love - preferably while eating yummy foods, and walking where there are more trees than I can count.
