Kimberly is kind and is a great listener. She has quickly understood where I am coming from, as a survivor of incestuous childhood sexual assault. Every session I have with Kimberly is helpful. I have not felt shamed, disrespected, let down, or led astray by Kim. She is fun to interact with, even through really scary and tough conversations. I have only good things to say about my experience with Kimberly so far, a few months into therapy. Great work, Kim! :D

Kimberly is absolutely amazing. I have so much respect for her, and she has given me a lot of confidence to face my demons. She is compassionate and kind with all the right words to make you feel understand and heard. I would absolutely recommend her in a heartbeat. She really understands what she is doing and truly cares. Cannot say enough good things for this amazing women.

Kimberly is BY FAR the greatest counselor I've had. I've been through 3 people including her, and she is the best! Understanding, supportive, and she can get me to think outside of my box. I was able to open up to her right away and im so glad I did. She has helped me so much in the few months we've been speaking, more so than my last two counselors combined! I can't say enough good things. 10/10 highly recommend

I appreciate Kimberly's ability to listen and reflect back what I said. I really appreciate her support and willingness to help me through my challenges.
