Hello, and Welcome!
I enjoy assisting people discover new ways of thinking about and experiencing their life issues, and feeling better maybe even joyous! I am a good listener and will take the time to make sure you are heard. My experience is diverse, and have worked with clients from ages 2 through 103 with a variety of problems ranging from trauma, career, family, parenting (children, grandchildren, and adult children), severe mental illness, marital, depression and anxiety, drug and alcohol, sexual life, medical issues, aging and caring for aging, end of life, and grief and loss, for a sampling. My background includes both individual and group counseling, in office setting, private homes, Group Home, Nursing Home, Inpatient Psychiatric Unit, Community Mental Health including groups with Federal Probation and Parole and Drug and Alcohol, Native American Health, Foster Care Families, and Employee Assistance Program.
I have been in the behavioral health profession for twenty seven years and my educational background includes a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology (2001) , a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology with Developmental Emphasis and Sociology Minor (1993), and an Associates of Science Degree in Psychology (1991) .
My focus is holistic, and on the here and now, and how past experiences and future hopes and plans or fears, affect it. If willing, I teach my clients to utilize mindfulness techniques, deep breathing and meditation, their own spirituality, social realm, and health goals. I use cognitive behavioral techniques, Rational Emotive Techniques, Transactional Analysis, EMDR, Inventories, among others in a pragmatic fashion. Together, we will find ways to develop strengths and use them to achieve life goals that keeps in mind weaker areas. Your goals will be our focus in sessions and I will give you help to clarify them as needed. It is my hope that you leave each session feeling as if you have gained something in working toward your well-being and goals, and that you will feel comfortable in letting me now how I am doing.
I look forward to working with you. I have daytime, and some early evening appointments available, Monday through Friday.

Kimberlee is very kind, caring, and understanding. I feel very comfortable talking to her about my problems, and she always has a great and helpful response for me. I am happy that I met her.
Kimberlee is great, very caring and helpful.
Kimberlee is super understanding and tells the truth on a situation looking from the outside in. I'm not afraid to tell her what I'm thinking and she always helps me figure out how to deal with difficult situations.
Kimberlee has been great so far, offering valuable insight and awesome support.
Kimberlee has been amazing. I definitely recommend her.
Kimberlee always knows exactly what to say and how to respond to any of my issues. She lays things out for me to understand and makes me feel like my issues are valid and she is in fact listening. I have been able to see things from a whole new angle thanks to her and am better able to tackle what comes my way. I always feel better after a session with her and look forward to my sessions because I know she will help me work through them.
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.
