Kimberley was an awesome therapist to work with. She helped me to break down my problems in a relatable and even funny way, made me feel heard, and helped provide real perspective to me in a time when I needed it. Thank you Kimberley!

Kimberly is really nice to talk to. I've never felt more comfortable opening up to someone else than I habe with her.
Not that I'm comfortable being an open book to her (yet.) But I am definitely much more comfortable talking to her, than my mom, or family members for sure!
She also makes me feel that my feelings are normal, and that I am normal. Which helps me a lot with my on-and-off anxieties and insecurities.
