About Me

Welcome!!! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, in the state of Connecticut, with 26 years’ experience, assisting individuals of all ages with personal, social & emotional health. I work with people struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, self-esteem, social issues, motivation and parenting. My counseling style is very down to earth, reality-based, and client centered. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), to help individuals learn more positive and productive coping skills and techniques for handling what life throws at us. We can explore the connection between your thoughts, feelings and behaviors, in order to understand how our negative thought patterns can contribute to our problems, and then we will develop strategies to combat them.

I pride myself on being caring, warm, encouraging, a great listener, non-judgmental, authentic, skilled, patient and extremely supportive. I provide a genuine, safe and caring atmosphere for you to feel comfortable sharing, and trusting that I have your best interest at heart.

I am passionate about using my experience and education, to help others learn how to reach their maximum potential to live a productive, positive, and happier life.

It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help, you have made the first step. Now let me help you with the next steps for improving your life. In order to make therapy more convenient and accessible, I offer a very flexible schedule, with evening and weekend time slots available, when requested.
I look forward to meeting and working with you.

My counselor Kim is a great person and a great counselor. I have no words to describe how well she made me feel from the first time we spoke on the phone. She explained to me how she works(which I really appreciated) , she made me feel comfortable and she broke the ice veeery quick since it was my first time counseling. She listened to me carefully and made me feel like I'm talking to a friend. Her advice and her aura worked miracles for me! Thank you Kim!

Kim’s patience and understanding is what made me love BetterHelp. This was my first experience with any form of therapy and I was pretty nervous to be honest. Kim assured me that there would be nothing to fear and within the first 5 minutes of our first FaceTime I was at ease and felt so comfortable talking to her. The best part about this platform for me is that I can schedule live sessions with her weekly at all times of the day so it’s flexible and the messaging option provides the support I need even when I’m in a situation where I can’t necessary call or when I need advice on something I currently have going on. Kim combines her motherly wisdom with her professional expertise for a really wonderful and progressive experience every session.
