About Me

I am a fully Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Masters Degree in Social Work from Western Michigan University in 2004, and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Sociology in 1999 from Grand Valley State University. I have a passion for working with adolescents, adults, elderly, and couples, with a specialty focus on depression, anxiety, suicide ideation, self-injury, grief/loss, women’s issues, and life transitions.

My goal is to provide you a safe, compassionate space for you to share your life, for optimal growth and healing. My counseling style is person centered, tailored to the individual goals and needs of my clients utilizing cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, behavioral, and solutions based therapies.

Having worked in the mental health field for 16 years, my experience has allowed me to assist many people and their families with varying backgrounds dealing with challenges such as; chronic mental illness, severe depression, anxiety, terminal illness, self-harming behaviors, and crisis intervention.

Are you ready to experience joy and hope again? I would like to come alongside you in finding the root causes of distress in your life to overcome unhealthy behavioral, and/or thought patterns allowing you to break free from simply surviving.

She does her job well, and has been very helpful in sorting myself out.

I’ve been recommending BetterHelp to everyone I know because of my therapist (Kimberly Stratton). It was so nice to be able to link with someone who has the experience and understanding to help me heal. I used to dread the idea of therapy but now I look forward to being able to talk and have someone listen. Thanks for being a part of my journey to health.

I've had one session with her and so far I love talking to her. She's really understanding and kind and very non judgemental. She checks in on me and I really appreciate her help. Would absolutely recommend to anyone going through a hard time

Kimberly has been great so far. I truly feel like she listens and understands where I'm coming from without being condescending or pushy for me to express my feelings. I feel like I can talk to her without judgement knowing that she is going to bring a great perspective to my sessions.

She’s been a rock for me and extremely helpful in my life issues. I would still be in a very unhappy place if it wasn’t for my time with her!

She is an amazing listener.....and also understands me....very important....because I can pick up on those things of someone who does not truly understand someone like me, but she has a phenomenal approach to my issues and I appreciate that......thank you, Kathy New

Kimberly is a really good counselor. She takes time to listen to your problems. She is knowledgeable about a lot of things. She has helped me deal with a lot of struggles i've had. I recommend her to anyone who needs a good counselor.

I really enjoy speaking with Kimberly and am very happy with the receptiveness of her messages. I think she's been a great help to me for the past couple weeks and I will continue to speak with her on a weekly basis.

I am very glad that I found BetterHelp, I was matched with another therapist but felt it wasn’t a great match and then I was Matched with Kimberly and she has been very encouraging and supportive, I feel like I can be honest and communicate openly, which is something I felt too scared to do in face to face therapy.
