Hello, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years experience. I have worked in a variety of settings, which has allowed me to work with diverse populations with various issues. While I consider myself to be well-trained in all therapeutic issues, I find myself drawn to the areas of child custody, adoption, and trauma. My counseling style is to build rapport and provide you with coping skills to help manage any negative feelings that arise in this process. After coping education, I want to be your guide in making positive changes that you identify for yourself. I will provide a nonjudgmental environment for you to share whatever is troubling you. My approach is to view the person as a whole mentally, physically and emotionally. Everyone has a story, but not all the chapters are written yet! Let me help you be the author of your book!
I am formally trained in EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, and Trauma Focused CBT. I have also worked as a fitness trainer and nutrition health coach.
On a personal note, I am a wife, mom and a grandmother. I enjoy everything I hated when I was younger-yoga, hiking, yard work, being on the tractor, kayaking and traveling in the USA.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Family conflicts, Intimacy-related issues, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, ADHD, Adoption and Foster Care, Chronic Pain Illness and Disability, Commitment Issues, Communication Problems, Control Issues, Dissociation, Divorce and Separation, Family Problems, First Responder Issues, Infidelity, Jealousy, Life Purpose, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Postpartum Depression, Post-traumatic Stress, Sexual Assault and Abuse, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Workplace Issues
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy

Every session with Kimberly has been so helpful, she gives advice, but also responds as a peer with empathy and emotion. I personally hate phone calls/zoom because I need to process things in real time a little longer so the chat therapy was a surprising positive for me, so grateful for her!!

Kimberly helps put things into focus for me or helps me pause myself to see what’s going on or not. She’s helping me with intrusive thoughts right now and has made me see things differently.

Kimberly has been a huge supporter during a time in which things in my life are just too wild and stressful. Having her as a stable person to talk to has been a major help. I highly recommend her.

Kimberly has been so kind and responsive to me. I like messaging with her. She sends me validation and worksheets that make me think. I look forward to more sessions so I can kick this depression and lesson my anxiety!
