I have been working with Kim just a few weeks and have been feeling much better. She’s teaching me new methods, techniques and other beneficial therapies to help me in my journey. I have appreciated how much time she spends with me both during our sessions as well as my messages during the week. I am glad I went forward getting therapy and looking forward working with Kim more!

Kim was very helpful with my concerns with my family and the matter with my husband. She is a great listener and gives great ideas on how to better communicate. I found her to be easy to talk to. I would recommend her for anyone that is look for a therapist.

Kim has been a wonderful support the past few months. She helped me through the stressful process of applying for jobs and leaving a toxic work situation while 100% burnt out. I was tickled when she'd send just brief little messages of support before an interview. I'm in a new role and what feels like a totally new season in my life and it is so helpful to have someone remind me that I deserve it. I appreciate her listening to me and her wonderfully affirming and kind energy.

Kim is so easy to talk to and provides insight on different aspects of situations discussed. I have grown a lot since the beginning of our sessions and she is the main reason my sanity stays intact.

Kimberly is amazing, she was extremely friendly and attentive. I had a great connection with her. I also really appreciate the fact she is Christian and understand my faith. She was so helpful and from the first session already helped me to feel better.

Kim is absolutely wonderful. She is kind, warm, welcoming, and thoughtful. She provides you with tools and information that is practical and helpful. I leave every session feeling like we accomplished so much and she teaches realistic ways to apply what we went over in everyday life. She is a great listener and gives gentle and tactful advice. Kim has helped me to achieve a calmer, more reflective, and happier life.
