Kimberly deeply understands that in this day and age, there is an enormous amount of pressure placed on all of us to be “successful” at work, school, relationships – it’s expected that we struggle balancing the weight of it all and grieve when life knocks us down.

Message to clients

My hope is always that you feel safe to come as you are; whether you’re actively needing to process or explore, or looking for sanctuary. My space is physical and emotional, to hold your experiences along with you, and join you wherever you are in your journey and to meet you in your needs. Sometimes that looks like listening and validation, sometimes that looks like working on things we talk about in our time together outside of the session time as well. Most importantly, however you come, I will do my best to meet you there.

Kimberly is very personable and clearly is the right match for my son. She has made me feel at ease about the process and what's needed to get my son started in therapy.

Kim let me give her as much background as I felt she needed to begin. I went into the phone call cautiously optimistic and after the phone call with Kim, I felt relieved and excited for her to get to know my daughter and help with our relationship.
