About me

Sometimes you need help and can't manage all by yourself. Sometimes you need objective, compassionate, and professional advice that will help you gain insight and courage to make changes in your life so that can live a full and rewarding life. Sometimes you need to be reminded that you are a wonderful unique person with gifts and talents yet to be realized.

I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor with a deep desire to help individuals overcome their mental and emotional problems using a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach . Your thoughts are the drivers of who you are and what you can become and do. Negative thoughts can sabotage your life in many areas - your well being, your relationships, your career, your past, your present and your future. I would find it a pleasure to help you capture those negative thoughts, feelings and behavior patterns that keep you from your best using cognitive behavioral strategies that have been scientifically proven to be successful.

I also like to help my clients understand from a scientific perspective just what is going on in their brain-feelings-body in simple terms so that as they learn/practice coping skills that help them to make sense of the reasons they got stuck in the first place - and gain insight into learning/growing from their past pain.

I have been working in the mental health field for over 14 years. I graduated from The University of Houston-Victoria with a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling Psychology. I have worked at the Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Psychological Division, Texana Center, Baylor College of Medicine, BetterHelp, Faithful Counseling, Teladoc and Amwell.

I firmly believe that no matter who you are - what your age - it is never too late to go for your dreams. You are Unique! You have Purpose! Let me help you to uncover the wonderful parts of you that have been covered by the misfortunes that inevitably occur in life.

Kimberly is the best I have recommended friends to her. She has a strong faith has no problem incorporating prayer into a session and she is one of the reasons I have survived the last two years of my life.

I have only been with Kim for a few weeks and already I realize somethings about myself that I didn’t think about before.
She has been very comfortable to talk to for myself and I am thankful to have had such an amazing opportunity.

Kim is so kind and remembers small details really well! It’s so nice because I feel like I don’t have to repeat myself all the time
