About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in California and Wisconsin, with over 25 years of experience working as a Therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, trauma and self esteem concerns. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have been trained in motivational interviewing and Trauma Informed Care. I have worked with individuals and groups from a variety of different culture's.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, client centered and psychodynamic counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Kim put me at ease right away and asked insightful questions. This was a first meeting, and her warmth and empathy come across immediately.

Kim has been extremely beneficial to my self-development journey. Her patience, depth, and insight have been greatly appreciated. Through cognitive behavioral therapy and her guidance I have been able to learn how my thought patterns, behaviors, and mental health are all correlated. I’m excited to continue on this mental health/healing journey with her and looking forward to the changes I will embark on.

Kim is very caring and kind while giving me the support I need to work through what I'm dealing with. She has me explain my feelings and emotions so I can work on changing behaviors and doing what I need to get done. I'm happy with the time and service Kim has given me so far through our journey.

I was going through a very hard time in my life and needed some help to make it better! I was matched with Kim and she was just what I needed to turn my life around! Couldn’t thank her enough! I highly recommend Kim as a counselor if you are having problems!

Kim changed my life. She helped me release my trauma, pain, and shame. She helped me realize my value and my strength as well. She was very supportive and created a safe place for me to talk and heal. I wouldn’t be on this path of healing without all her help and work she put in. I am very lucky and grateful for this.
