LPC #3478 (Expires: 2022-06-29)
She is wonderful, warm and understanding. She also tempers that with firm counseling when needed. I would highly recommend her!
Starting therapy with Kimberlee has been a very pleasant experience. It’s helped me already so much even though I’ve only met a few times so far. She listens and helps me understand it’s ok to feel the way I feel instead of feeling bad about it. She is gentle and calm.
A wonderful experience through and through.
Kimberlee was a godsend. I prayed for a therapist that was going to help me grow and also understood me. She was exactly that. It was a pleasure having her as my therapist. I'm really thankful for her.
I’ve been with Kimberlee for almost a year. She’s helped to be more confident in myself and overcome barriers that were holding me back. I’m very thankful for her!
I’m extremely grateful to have found betterhelp and being paired with Kimberlee. She has been helpful in building my strength during this difficult time. Her advice given in a kind and caring way is so appreciated and useful.
Kimberlee is a kind person. Always here to support and check in. Very sweet therapist. Most importantly she always feels in my corner. When Im not understanding a concept she works with me to find different ways to explain it.
Kimberlee came into my life at a time when I was deeply in need of sympathetic, competent help. I had many reservations about getting counseling and Kimberlee intuitively picked up on them and allayed all of those fears. She is highly intuitive, sympathetic, informed about a wide range of different issues and is knowledgeable about how to address them so that they can be worked out safely and quickly. I am so, so thankful that our paths crossed. Kimberlee helped me through a time that was very difficult for me, and I see what a difference it has made. I am deeply thankful to Kimberlee not only for her help and time, but her gentle guidance I desperately needed, her empathy and her excellent skill at reaching out to people amidst their struggling. Kimberlee provides excellent and insightful feedback to messages and journal entries. And she provides video sessions which were very important for me to make the connection. Thanks so much for all your help, Kimberlee. I am so grateful to God that we met.
Wow! I’ve got to say my therapist is amazing. She just gets me. She has helped me dig in so deep into my self and really find the internal healing I’ve been searching for over the past few years. We have been working together for almost 4 months and I don’t know what I would have done without her. She really listens to me and understands me. She’s really good at talking me down when my anxiety is high and allowing me to feel grounded. She really is such an amazing therapist and I tell all my friends about how grateful I am that our paths crossed! Thank you For all that you do and being my crutch in this season of life!

Kimberlee has been great so far, offering valuable insight and awesome support.
Kimberlee has been amazing. I definitely recommend her.
At first I was unsure about the program but after seeing it advertised multiple times I decided to give it a shot. I was matched in a matter of hours and have been amazed at the connection I feel I have with Kim. In a very short amount of time she was able to see the real root of my issues and why I cope, process, and deal with emotions and situations the way I do. She has provided very useful worksheets and suggested amazing reading material. In looking into the things she has suggested, I have been able to show my friends and loved ones how accurate it is and a lot of them have began to consider looking into BetterHelp themselves! I could go on and on. I have nothing but good things to say! Highly recommend BetterHelp and Kim!
Kimberlee just gets me! She is so in tune with what I am saying and understands what I mean when I can’t even get the right words to express things. She’s truly a blessing. In the short time I have seen her I have grown leaps and bounds. I had given up hope of being whole and she’s giving me practical tools and amazing advice! On my good days I feel better mentally than I ever have my entire life! My “bad” days are less frequent and less intense as well!
I have truly enjoy this online therapy and give it very beneficial.
Kimberlee Thomas is a therapist that is thoughtful, knowledgeable and compassionate. She responds quickly and has even put me in live sessions after hours when my work schedule clashed with the appointments that were available. I’ve done years of traditional therapy and nothing compares to BetterHelp with my therapist being so great!
Kimberlee is extremely knowledgeable in so many areas. I have never had a counselor that is so practically helpful during EVERY session. She offers very legitimate advice multiple times during a session and I am growing very quickly from our sessions.
Kim is an awesome person and VERY compassionate and comfortable to talk to. She is nonjudgmental and her experience is priceless. She knows what she is doing. If you need a great counselor who is willing to challenge as well, Kim is the perfect person for you.
She is great and patient.
Kimberley is an excellent listener. She certainly hears and understands what I am saying and gives great insight and feedback. After just one session with her I felt very confident in her ability to help me and I'm sure she can do the same for many others.
