Kimberly is an awesome therapist! She deserves 5 gold stars. I’m grateful I got to work with her. She truly cares for her clients and helped me through a transitional period in my life. She listened, she empathized, she made an impact, and gave great advice that I will take with me. Anyone would be lucky to have Kimberly as their therapist.

She is outstanding. I am comfortable with her and she allows me to be myself. She asks the right questions and allows me the opportunity to have my "Ah-Ha" moments around why I do, respond or act. She is amazing

I like Kimberly LaPlumes personality and her expertise in what I needed help with.
I actually looked on Betterhelp.com web site and matched myself with her before betterhelp.com did.
So far she has been very helpful with my problems.
