Hi, My name is Kim Dunlap, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 8 years of experience in the helping profession. I have served diverse populations with a wide range of concerns including homelessness, medical affliction, post-partum, terminal illness, grief/loss, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, relationship issues and adjustment issues.
I believe that a compassionate heart could lift a cloudy day; therefore, this is the approach that guides my therapeutic journey. Life can be very complex; dealing with stressors within and/or around you can be overwhelming and difficult to do alone. My goal is to help and support you through your challenges by being warm, understanding, receptive and present.
I recognize that therapy does not have a clean-cut solution for everything, which is why it is important for me to meet with you on a holistic level to better understand your needs. When one area of your life is troubled everything else is affected. As your therapist, I will focus on your biological, psychological, social, and spiritual needs. Thank you for taking a big step to seek for support. I hope that I could be of value to you as you are to me through this journey.
