About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 6 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 21 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’ve only head the pleasure of having Kimberly nave as my therapist for three weeks but we’ve gone over a lot of deep issues I’ve had and she’s trained me so well on how to deal with my emotions and it’s truly a blessing to have her help.

Kim is chill. No pressure.

Written by P.A. on Apr 23, 2022 after therapy with Kimberly for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and adhd

Kimberly is great. She could relate to my situation. She is very professional. She gave me some life examples from her own experience but didn't make it all about her.

Kimberly is amazing. She helped me navigate some tough issues I was dealing with. I felt heard and I felt that my emotions and responses were valid. She was calm, she used her own life experiences to help me through these challenges. I am incredibly thankful for our short time together.

She's very helpful.

Kimberly is very consistent and doesn’t take sides she always checks me and get me together as well

Written by K.E. on Dec 20, 2021 after therapy with Kimberly for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, coping with life changes, and coaching

It can take a long time to get help, to acknowledge to yourself that you need it and then to actually show up. Kim allayed any fears and preconceptions and has gently, compassionately and empathetically helped me work through inner struggles whilst providing enough food for thought at the right times. Therapy is hard, very hard, so your counsellor is crucial. Kim has made seemingly untraverseable bridges crossable for me and shown me lifetime tools that give me more strength than I've had in years.

Kimberly is very sweet and she always make sure to check up on you through the text messages. Which I found very nice. However I find talking to her goes nowhere so she gives me no help or advice. I feel like talking to a stranger on the street would be just as adequate. I often find a talk and when I'm done she has no response has no questions no lessons and I just keep talking and she goes on haha and hun and I learned nothing and don't grow it all I feel like I've wasted a s*** ton of money just talking to a person that did absolutely no actual work that would have taken studying or a college degree to do

Written by A.P. on Sep 06, 2021 after therapy with Kimberly for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, and anger management

I felt so much better after a recent call with Kim. While talking with her on the phone she was able to help me come to some realizations about issues in my relationship with my husband and my son and even some things I needed to understand about myself. She shared some of her personal experience, which I found helpful and relatable. She’s very communicative and available and easy to talk to.

I hug myself every time we talk the counseling is so good

Written by P.H. on Aug 02, 2021 after therapy with Kimberly for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, and parenting issues

Perfect balance of friendly and professional. Understanding her background makes me feel even more confident about her abilities as a therapist (not that they were ever a question). I felt instantly comfortable with her.

Written by M.I. on Jul 31, 2021 after therapy with Kimberly for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Kimberly is such a kind and supportive councillor, she makes you feel really comfortable and she really listens and supports you and find out what your big concerns are and gives you helpful strategies to help you work through them.

Kim, talks to me like a human being, doesn’t criticise or makes any judgment, helps me through my troubles of life, would definitely recommend her

Written by R.I. on Jun 16, 2021 after therapy with Kimberly for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, coping with life changes, and coaching

Very kind and caring, but also share her personal struggles/insights which makes me listen more/makes her more accessible emotionally

Written by M.A. on Jun 09, 2021 after therapy with Kimberly for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Kimberly helped me a lot with my relationship with my parents and my partner. I felt heard and like I could really express myself. I had to quit Betterhelp not because of her, but because I decided to see someone physically in my country. I recommend her !

Written by K.A. on Apr 23, 2021 after therapy with Kimberly for 4 months

Having Kimberly as my counselor has been a life changing experience. I had never used professional therapy services prior to joining BetterHelp but I'm very thankful for Kimberly being my first therapist. The lessons and skills I've obtained during the time I've spent on BetterHelp will carry me through my lifetime. The experience has truly been priceless.

Kimberly has really helped me in a time where I felt the most alone and stagnant. She has had some shared experiences which has helped so much with our sessions. She's easy to talk to and there is no judgment. I couldn't recommend her more highly
