Kimberly Benchsky is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Cranston, Rhode Island, specializing in Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. She also sees individuals for grief, family conflicts, and life changes, such as becoming a new mother, empty nest syndrome, and transitions from adolescent to adulthood. Kim sees clients of all age groups, from young children through seniors.
Kim is particularly passionate about supporting children and adults on the spectrum. Her trainings have focused on working at children's hospitals, and she completed her graduate school education at Kings College in London where she worked with experts on ASD. She supports individuals on the spectrum through social skills, family interactions, and sensory difficulties.
She also enjoys supporting new mothers who are struggling with the adjustment to motherhood, inspired by her personal experience parenting two young children.
Kim's primary approach to treatment is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and she also draws from occupational therapy skills in her practice. She bases her sessions wherever most comfortable for her client, including using the play therapy room at her office, going for walks outside, meeting her clients in the community, or offering remote video sessions.
