I have been in therapy and taking anti-anxiety/anti-depressant medication for many years. Earlier this year, I reached out to better help for some additional support due to COVID-19 challenges at work and home. She was responsive, understanding, supportive, and gave great practical advice and concrete strategies. I emerged from our sessions feeling like I could figure out how to deal better with my issues. Thank you, Kim.

Kim is a great listener, and I felt I'm getting her full attention and empathy throughout the session. It's extremely powerful to have that feeling, and opens up vulnerability. I appreciate the time Kim spent with me.

Kimberly is a breath of fresh air. She is an amazing listener, who’s ear and perfectly poised response, has at times brought me to tears of happiness/joy/acceptance. She also has the ability to tell it like it is. She has been the perfect balance of what I needed in a counsellor. I didn’t truly understand what I was looking for when originally searching, but I am so glad I picked Kimberly. Honestly, she has cleared my head and helped me see clearly again. Enabling me to make affirmative strides where necessary. I’m excited at the prospect that there is still further to come!
