Areas of therapy experience includes EMDR, EFT (Emotionally Focused therapy), anxiety, depression, communication, anger management, grief and loss, premarital, marriage counseling, parenting, family conflict, family therapy, peer relationships, self esteem, self harming behaviors, abuse, school issues, trauma and PTSD
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you with counseling overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. I utilize EMDR, the most widely researched non pharmaceutical trauma intervention, and is very effective for many clients that experience trauma.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial for couples/families who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Emotionally Focused Therapy is utilized to help clients reconnect and build connection and safety with each other. Marriage and family therapy sessions are held with couples/families and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.

"Words could not express the gratitude I feel I am so glad you were recommended and now I know why. Like I've said before, I feel like that for the first time, that's because I felt you were safe. You made me see things in myself good/bad that I wasn't aware of before and I am thankful for that. Thank you for understanding me, validating me, and reassuring me . Your time and guidance through some of the most difficult things in my life are priceless and I will remember many of your tips as I move out of state. Thank you again for everything Kimberly. I truly appreciate you and will miss you. "
