About me

My name is Kim Ream and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marital and Family Therapist in the state of Missouri. I have approximately 10 years’ experience counseling individuals (children and adults), couples and families. I have done crisis in-home family counseling, I have done private counseling at a counseling office, and I have worked in higher education counseling college students. I have worked with a variety of clinical issues and problems like family conflict, blended family problems, adjustment to life stages problems, addictions, grief/loss, depression, anxiety, ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and many others. I am specifically trained in Gottman Method for couples-level 1, EMDR, Grief and Loss, and currently working on certification in integrative medicine: fitness and nutrition as it relates to mental health.
I utilize person-centered, solution focused, motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral approaches. Also, as a marital and family therapist, I do use a systemic approach. I do not feel there is a one-size-fits-all approach to counseling. Each person I see is unique, their problems are unique, therefore, my approach to assisting anyone is tailored to the uniqueness and complexity of the problems they are experiencing.

Kimberly somehow makes sense out of what feels like chaos in my head and heart. She puts perspective and context around my confusion.
