I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Alabama, and I have over 15 years of experience working with people dealing with mental and behavioral health issues. I have worked with diverse populations in various treatment settings, to include: crisis stabilization, inpatient psychiatric and detox, residential, re-entry correctional facilities, out patient and independent contract settings. My approach is always non-judgmental, compassionate, direct, solution-focused, and client centered. You are the expert in your life and the writer of your own story. I am here to share my knowledge and skills that i have learned over the years that can help you with living the life that you desire.
By using combinations of various techniques from a vast array of theories and methodologies, both traditional and holistic, in nature, we can discover what works best for you. We will work to identify specific skills, practices, strengths, and resources that will: provide symptom relief, improve daily coping, and help to create a strong foundation that will allow you to safely work on any areas of desired change.
I emphatically believe that, we as humans beings do the very best that we can do at any given time, by using the skills and resources that we have available to us at that time. On this life journey, we often encounter situations that do not respond well to our current skill sets, or ways of coping. We must learn new skills, new behaviors, and new ways of coping, so that we can continue our journey and live the quality of life that we desire.
I commend you for reaching out and asking for help, as I know it's not always easy to do so. Thank you for entrusting me with the details of your personal story, and for giving me the opportunity to work with you at this point on your journey. I am committed to empower others with the self determination needed to create the positive changes desired!

She is the best therapist I have ever talked to! She knew exactly what I needed which was a friendly person to talk to who is relatable and actually understands and cares about what I am going through. She made me feel like my experience and feelings are valid which is what I really needed since I always have people in my life who like to invalidate my feelings, and I feel like she noticed that right away. I would recommend her to any of my friends in law school and outside of law school.

Kim Davis is a great counselor! She knows how to get through to me and be honest. I trust her direction of my therapy from questions she was willing to answer. She hasnt made me re-live my traumas which was important to me while still be able to help with my red flags when they come up. She is quick to respond and helpful in keeping me progressing.
