Hello and welcome! I am a licensed clinical social worker in Illinois with 6 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, depression, co-occurring disorders & coping with life changes I have worked in the inpatient, residential. Detox inpatient and individual outpatient therapy setting. I work with my clients to create a comfortable, open and safe environment. I am a transparent person and I bring that approach into session. I believe this helps to ensure that each client feels their time is well spent in therapy and leave the session feeling that the content discussed was beneficial to them. Outlining short term and long term goals promotes structure in the session and the client is able to identify an agenda but one that is attainable and realistic to achieve. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life is an incredibly powerful decision and I am here to support you in that process.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Obsessions, Compulsions, and OCD
Clinical approaches: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

So far even without having a proper session, which our first session is very close, we have had some great conversations, I'm excited to see what I learn and how I grow from her expertise.

Kimberly is great! She offers great suggestions and coping mechanisms to help me deal with my anxiety. Her responses are timely and helpful. I would highly recommend her to anyone who struggles with anxiety.

Kimberly has been excellent to work with! She always provides detailed notes for me after our sessions, which are helpful since we typically cover a lot each time! She makes me feel heard and valid during our sessions. Thank you so much!

It has been wonderful working with Kimberly, even in the short time we have been. I feel I can be open & honest with her and talk freely as needed, and she's a great listener and proceeds to help me throughout any struggles or stresses I discuss with her. By far, greatest experience I've ever had with a therapist.
