Best therapist ever!
I don't know how I would have survived leaving an abusive relationship without Kimberly. When I first started working with her I was in full denial. She built a relationship and trust with me and helped me not only acknowledge what I had been going through but start to heal. I am still healing with her support, and I will never be able to repay her for all she has done for me. She is brilliant, empathetic, supportive, and caring. Again, do not know what I'd do without her. She is a gift.

feeling heard
Kimberly has been helping me through a difficult separation and divorce and she has helped me to discover my own core wounds and attachment patterns to emerge stronger than ever before. I don’t have a lot of experience working with therapists but from the beginning, it was very important to me to “feel heard”, and Kimberly does exactly that. I’m the academic type and eagerly soak up the knowledge she has to share while supplementing holistically with outside reading of other therapists’ and healers’ publications. Finally, what I respect most about Kimberly as a professional and as a fellow strong “alpha female” is that she has a spine and pushes back on me when I need it.

We Love Kimberly
Kimberly, is a blessing for my daughter and family. She has helped my daughter through emotional trauma by giving her tools to process and workout her emotions that brings her self confidence and respect for herself. My daughter has become a successful young adult in all areas of her life with the guidance and tools Kimberly has taught her. My daughter has a special bond with her therapist because of the care, love and friendship Kimberly shows while teaching her to navigate in difficult life situations . We love Kimberly and highly recommend her !

Master at her craft!
Kimberly is a master at her craft. She has incredible expertise and her insights are extraordinary helpful. Every time I work with Kimberly, I am amazed at how understood and supported I feel. Her energy is healing and calm yet strong at the same time - a very rare and valuable quality in the mental health field. Since I began my work with Kimberly, I feel more capable handling life’s difficulties and have discovered a new approach to life that allows a much higher level of fulfillment and joy. She makes the process one that you really look forward to and feel empowered by. I can’t speak highly enough of Kimberly and would recommend her to anyone ready to have a more fulfilling life!

Kimberly is hands down the best therapist I’ve ever worked with. From the start, she has helped me to set up processes to navigate through all aspects of life. Through working with her, I’ve developed so much more confidence in myself and even my more challenging relationships are much more manageable.

Kim is honestly a godsend. I have been with her for over a year now, and she has helped me through some challenging moments in my life and given me great perspectives and insight. At times, she feels even more like a companion than a therapist in that she doesn’t make me feel like a patient. Her words and teachings have really affected my day-to-day experiences and I truly do feel more self-aware and mindful because of it. I am so grateful and appreciative of what Kim has done for me, and to me. She’s incredibly patient and understanding, and anyone would be lucky to be a client of hers!

To be honest I wasn't really sure what to expect going in to therapy and I was kind of nervous. When I first met Kimberly in her office she had such a great energy about her I immediately felt comfortable and knew I had made the right choice. She's super caring, empathetic and makes you feel like you can share your story without any judgement. The changes I have seen in myself in such a short time are nothing short of amazing.

What a wonderful, insightful and most important thing about Kimberly is her abilities to be fair. I have been seeing her along with my daughter to help us threw a hard divorce. Kimberly has won the trust of my daughter. She has been able to help us both keep a open communication and my relationship with my daughter has never been better. I would recommend Kimberly to any family.
