About Me

Hi! As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I see my role in the counseling process as that of a "change agent". Someone who is meeting you at possibly one of the worst times in your life and saying "I'm willing to walk with you through this journey". My desire is to help people who are tired of living a life that no longer works for them. Often stressful life events, such as relationship challenges, job problems, health issues, or coping difficulties can trigger suffering and the need for support.
My method of counseling is cognitive behavioral therapy because the way we think impacts the way we act. Neglecting our own needs due to stress can lead to mental and physical decline. Asking for help is challenging but it is the best gift we give to ourselves.
I believe people are resilient but there are times when even the strongest of the strong need help. Maya Angelou, said it best in her poem "Still I Rise" as she speaks to our inner strength and how no matter what the circumstances-WE CAN RISE!
Since graduating from Dallas Baptist University in 2005, I've been counseling for over a decade and continue to be passionate about mental health. I believe mental health is 'everything' because it impacts everything! While working in private practice, in Texas (License #64685), for the past eight years, I have enjoyed working with teens, 'twenty somethings', stressed out parents, grandparents, caregivers, spouses, students and those struggling with chronic health issues.
If you want to get better then let's do it together!
Be well.

Since starting with Kimberly, I actually look forward to bettering myself and not just hiding away from what I’m feeling. She is a part of my week that I look forward to and I don’t plan on that ending anytime soon. I know I have a lot of things to work through with her but I’m not afraid to move forward anymore!
