Kim is probably the most adaptable counsellor I have ever worked with. She really does provide me with tools to cope with the things that challenge me!

Kim really relived a lot of my personal fears and helped me understand how strong of a person I am. I really value her counseling style of letting you realize what is important to you and how that would affect certain decisions. She is lets me see things in a logical perspective but also give an air of sensitivity and concern that makes it so easy to talk to her.

Kim is the most welcoming counselor I've ever met with. I felt very comfortable opening up to her. It was very easy to learn strategies from her and I appreciate the time she spends recapping our meetings, including providing video, podcast, and article recommendations. She is nothing short of amazing, so grateful to have met with her.

Mrs Kim is absolutely amazing. She is such a great listener and encourager. I was so down and stuck in my head and stuck in the vicious cycle of anxiety and panic. After working with her for 1 month, I am starting to see things turnaround and my life change for the better! I encourage you to give her a shot and you will not be disappointed!

Written by E.S. on Jun 14, 2020 after therapy with Kim for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and coping with life changes

This was absolutely the best decision I've made and i couldn't have got a better therapist. She did an amazing job in helping me unwiring my brain and dealing with overwhelming emotions. She guided me through relationship issues and made sure i understood my partner better. I had 1 month of therapy but the changes I was able to make will help me for the rest of my life ❤

Kim is very nice and easy to talk to. She gave me some exercises to try to relax and release tension and so far they seem to be helping.

From the first session I had with Kim, I could tell that I had made the right choice to pursue counseling. BetterHelp paired me with the perfect counselor for me. Kim really listens and responds in ways that are easily understood, and draws the answers and revelations right out of you into the open. She sends me so much helpful info and material from different media sources that really help me during my week, so I do not lose momentum. This is the best decision I have made for myself in a long time. Thank you so much Kim, and I am looking forward to all that is to come from our sessions!
