Introduction: I have spent many years counseling couples and individuals through communication challenges. Ultimately, people just want to be understood, but few of us are taught how to listen and express what we need. Our social media standards have created an increased amount of anxiety, Imposter Syndrome, and suppression of feelings. I help teach people tools for communication and self-worth. At 50 years old, I am educated in clinical mental health, spiritual psychology, and energy healing modalities. This has given me a well-rounded perspective on the root cause of suffering. Most of my clients have experienced a lot of abandonment, abuse, and neglect -- in essence, learning to trust that it is safe to get attached again. I offer free consultations and would love to get to know your story!

Kim is wonderful. She's empathetic and a great listener. In the time I was able to work with her I could sense her experience and empathy.

Kim has really helped me grow through her counseling. She is excellent at helping navigate through difficult times and will always listen without any judgement.

Kim is very gifted as a counselor! I wish everyone could experience or have access to a therapist as supportive and helpful as she is. I find counseling essential to life because of my experience with Kim.

I’ve been attending therapy for years prior to meeting Kim, and I’m still shocked as to how little progress I made up until now. Her kindness, sincerity, and deep understanding of where I’m at and what I’ve been through really helped me face trauma that I didn’t even know was still buried. I continue to feel heard, safe, supported, and encouraged to grow from my experience with Kim. Highly recommend her!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My rate for couples counseling is $150/session, and for individual therapy, it is $100/session. Sessions are 50-55 minutes.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The initial session is focused on getting to know you and what you want out of therapy. I listen to your story so that I can understand your experiences and perspectives. I work a lot with the inner child, so I may ask questions about your childhood and what that was like for you.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a master's in Spiritual Psychology and am about to complete a second master's, in Clinical Mental Health. I have many certifications in energy healing modalities (e.g. Reiki, ThetaHealing, tapping) but my work is focused solely on psychotherapy now. I have spent years being trained under couples counseling therapists and eating disorder specialists.
