A word from Kim:
“Oftentimes, we are drawn to begin therapy during a time of crisis or emotional pain. Therapy and counseling can certainly help us get "unstuck" during such difficult times. However, I believe that therapy and counseling can also prompt positive growth in ways we may not have anticipated. As a therapist, I view it as an honor to guide my clients towards discovering what works for them on their journey. A good counseling experience will often begin with a trusting relationship with a therapist. For this reason, I value my client’s safety and comfort, and I make it a priority to get to know your unique histories, needs, and goals.
The postpartum period brings a unique set of challenges to individuals and couples. For many people, additional support can maximize a family's chances of health and wellness during this time of transition. I specialize in assisting individuals and couples experiencing mental health and relational challenges during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Balancing self-care and the responsibilities of being a parent can be very challenging. However, it is my belief that one of the best gifts we can give to our children is modeling healthy self-care by nurturing our own emotional, mental, relational, and physical health.
In addition to my interest in working with individuals and couples transitioning to parenthood, I also have extensive experience and enjoy working with adolescents experiencing substance use, mood disorders, self-harm, and family discord.”
