About Me

Are you overwhelmed? Is stress and worry impacting your life? How are you sleeping? Do past hurts, traumas, and broken relationships keep you woke at night? Are you misunderstood and judged, is your best not good enough? Do you long for relief from the pain of a broken heart? Well carrying the weight of unresolved issues has a negative impact on your present and your future. The hurt that's embedded deep in your heart may manifest in many ways such as anger, depression, isolation, anxiety, broken relationships, poor parenting, eating disorders, substance abuse, and much more. It's okay to seek help you're not weak; you're human.
My passion is healing broken hearts. I want you to release pain and begin healing. I want you to come to terms with painful experiences that you cannot face alone. I utilize Cognitive behavioral Therapy and Psychoanalytic therapy to help you overcome the limiting and often paralyzing beliefs that result from past hurts and trauma. I want you to live again!
My career is a call to serve. I have 18 years experience focusing on healing emotional and psychological wounds. I provide a safe place where you can expose your pain and problems through a heart-to-heart conversation. I offer therapeutic interactions that bring comfort, healing, and hope, for the future. I honor the opportunity to connect with you.

From the first visit she was already connecting dots for me and helping me understand myself. I've talked to plenty of counselors before her but she is by far the most interactive and listening counselor I've had. I'm excited to see how she can help me. Honestly, its almost like talking to a good friend. Highly recommend her.

So far a great experience. Kimberly has been open, receptive and very knowledgeable, as well as easy to talk to. She is offered many helpful ways to rethink some of the things that have been a struggle for me. I was hesitant about A/V non-face-to-face counseling. But I found it to be very helpful.

After just three sessions I feel like why didn’t I do this sooner, I have gotten so much help in such little time, and I want to continue my sessions so I can become a better person, and be stronger in life.. she has helped me tremendously. She is very professional and so understanding.
