Hello! I am a professional counselor in Georgia with 21 years of experience working as a therapist in the community and school settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, ADHD, relationship issues, parenting problems, as well as college and career counseling. I've also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse process these feelings and feel more like themselves to live a happy and fulfilling life.
My counseling style is warm and engaging. I believe in treating anyone with respect and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and interpersonal counseling. We will work together to develop an understanding of how beliefs, thoughts, behavior, and emotions are interconnected. I will tailor our treatment plan to meet your unique goals and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support you during this journey!
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kim Ivester. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Kim is always patient with me (and I require a lot of patience lol). She comes to every session with a calm, non-judgmental aura and makes me feel safe to share anything.
I have always been hesitant about therapy but Ms. Kim made it so easy to open up.
Kim is kind, understanding, and a great listener. She has been incredibly helpful during a very difficult time.
Kim is nothing short of amazing.
Wonderful! Attentive, kind, and understanding. She is a wonderful counselor.
Kim is a compassionate individual who sincerely want to help. She actively listens and gives you the right tools to start making the change you want to see. I appreciate her hands-on approach.
Kim is a great listener
