I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 8 years experience working as a counselor and life coach. I have worked with clients helping them to learn how to cope with depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma, life changes, and parenting problems. In addition, I have homeschooled over 24 years and am familiar with the challenges facing homeschool families.
My counseling style is relaxed and compassionate, and I believe that communication and collaboration is important in the counseling relationship. I work hard to develop rapport to create a safe place for clients to be open and honest about their thoughts and feelings. My approach is based on my understanding of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and solution-based therapy. As your counselor, I will work with you to develop goals that will help you to learn how to work through challenges you may face to have the life you desire.
By seeking counseling, I believe you have strength and courage, which are necessary to create the changes you are looking for. If you are ready to take the steps to transform your life, I am here to work with you, encourage you, and empower you.
I am looking forward to working with you!

I feel like I couldn’t have found anyone else that understands me and my needs any better than who had been chosen for me. Kimberly is very prepared and always on time. She is also extremely knowledgeable about things I needed assistance with. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!! Best therapist I’ve had!

Kimberly is a God send! I had a previous counselor on here and got really discouraged, I'm so glad I didn't give up! She responds timely and to your specific concerns. Definitely would recommend!
