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.

I knew Ms Washington was perfect for me from the first session! It was like talking to an not only an old friend but an expert in her field. She listened to every aspect of my concerns and took great notes. She helped me to focus on what I needed to help me sort through what was most important to get the best out of our time together. Not only will I continue to utilize her during my time of need, I will be sure to continually touch base with her so I don’t lose focus on my progress. I highly recommend her to anyone who has specific needs and would like a candid view and insight to helping you work through tough times with amazing knowledge and care for people.

Kimberly’s ability to listen and relate are exactly what I needed. She is real, kind, empathetic, and understanding of how people think and relate to one another. In all instances too! Whether it is parent/child, husband/wife, friends, any kind, she knows her stuff!! Thank you Kimberly for listening. Looking forward to learning more.
