About ME


Hi! My name is Kim and I am excited at the possibility of being your counselor. I became a therapist because my own story is one of childhood trauma, addictive behaviors and disordered eating that continued until I sought help from a therapist. .

My speciality is working with women of all ages who are facing anxiety/depression, disordered eating, unresolved trauma, grief and loss, life transitions, relationship issues, and addictive behaviors.

As your therapist, you can expect a warm, nonjudgemental place to process your thoughts and feelings, while having a safe space to be heard and validated. I will help you identify roadblocks that are keeping you stuck from being the best version of yourself. In our sessions, you will explore faulty thought patterns, learn to tolerate uncomfortable feelings and address past experiences that have created unhealthy behaviors and a negative self-image.

You will start to learn to quiet your inner voice that says things like you are not good enough, you are always to blame or you are insignificant. New tools will be given so you can reframe your thoughts, developing a new narrative that says you matter; you are worthy. By the end of our work together, you will have learned self compassion, healthier boundaries and better coping strategies when dealing with life stressors. You will have a better relationship with yourself, your body and others.

Reach out to today and schedule a free consultation so you can be your most authentic self!

You obsess over checking things, organizing things and/or have rituals that you need to do. You have excessive fear about germs and getting sick.

Women's Issues

Is this you? You don’t know who to trust with your secret shame and guilt. You wish there was somebody who could tell you why you feel this way. You are stuck in a cycle of unhealthy behaviors and it feels like there's no way out. You want to be kinder to yourself and "practice self-care," but you don't know how. You just want somebody to listen to you and your feelings for once. You want to stop pretending you have it all together. You keep trying to put up boundaries in your relationships, but you fail. You accept abusive behavior because you think it isn't that bad or you don't deserve anything better. You constantly judge your thoughts and feelings. You are your worst critic.

FAQ


As a Pre-Licensed Professional, I am able to provide therapy services under the supervision of a licensed professional counselor or licensed professional social worker. I have met all of the educational requirements, passed the National Counselor Exam and am board certified as a counselor. The only requirement left to become licensed as a professional counselor is to gain 3000 hours of experience under the supervision of a skilled supervisor. Every counselor who becomes licensed must go through this process. If you have any additional questions or need more clarification, please call for a free 15 minute consultation so we can talk further.

Sessions are $60. A sliding scale may be available for those in need. 

Currently, I only accept cash, check or credit card (Visa, Mastercard and Discover). I do not accept insurance at this time. However, my fees are set at a price that often times are comparable to an insurance co-pay. Please check your co-pay, comparing it to what you can afford and if you think we would be a good fit,  please contact me.
At the first session, we will get to know each other and decide if we are a good fit. I will ask you basic questions about your background, and your goals for therapy. I can also answer any questions you might have about the therapy process. If we decide to work together, we will come up with a plan to move forward and schedule our regular session time. Payment will be due at the first session.
Typically, we will meet weekly. Depending on the situation and goals we establish, we could meet more or less frequently. Therapy can last from several weeks to many months depending on your need and preferences.
If you have an emergency, you are required to call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. This is a requirement, as I am unable to be available at all times and emergencies require immediate attention.
