Professional statement

Kim Meijer, is a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist in Manhattan, NY, who works with individuals couples and Families. Many of the individuals she works with suffer from anxiety, depression, stress, burn out and relational issues with intimate partners and children. Many of the couples she works with struggle with issues related to intimacy, cultural backgrounds, future planning, life transitions and relationship dynamics. She also work with families where family members struggle with addiction issues and death of a parent or partner. Her intention is to support individuals with creating a fulfilling life with meaningful relationships with others and themselves.

Kim uses an integrative approach as she works with her clients. She will look at your whole being, your body, spirit and mind. Besides talk therapy and family systems she also practices somatic experiencing and contemplative psychology.

Somatic experiencing method is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. Many of us have experienced trauma wether it’s a death of a loved one, a car accident, verbal and or emotional abuse. These traumatic events affect the wiring of our nervous system and psychological well being. The SE™ approach releases trauma which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.

Contemplative psychology is based on meditative eastern traditions. She is a certified yoga teacher and uses meditation, breath and visualizations to release stress and ground the nervous system.


Message to clients

At the heart of my work is my collaboration with others to develop a valued, meaningful life. A life that is lived with integrity, curiosity, joy and meaningful relationships with others and self. There is no life without experiencing pain and loss. As we work together we learn to embrace our suffering as well as fully experience our joy and happiness.

It is my belief that the therapeutic relationship is sacred and instrumental to the healing process. As we work together I cultivate openness, curiosity, and warmth--meeting you where you are. Each individual has the potential to heal and experience freedom. My role is to support and guide this sacred process in a trusting and safe environment. As Rumi said “The wound is the place where the Light enters you”. I will be your ally as we uncover and heal your wounds and blockages, unstick repetitive patterns, set up healthy boundaries, navigate new territories, and realize one’s potential.
