Kimberly works with individuals of all ages. She believes in approaching therapy eclectically. While drawing from many humanistic theories, she also integrates DBT, CBT, and EMDR into her practice. Kimberly believes that therapy should be tailored to the individual client’s needs. She strives to be authentic, humorous, pragmatic, and believes that therapy is built on rapport.

Early on, Kimberly received training with acute children and adolescents in PHP and IOP services. She has used that training to help children and adolescents with emotional regulation, self-harm, suicidal ideation, anxiety, mindfulness, impulsivity, child/parent relationships, trauma, anger, aggression, and ADHD/executive functioning. Kimberly uses play therapy and age-appropriate techniques while working with kids and adolescents to help them express themselves during therapy. 

Kimberly enjoys working with children and parents who striving to find workable solutions as they come to a better place for their families. Divorce, separation, and going between two homes can be incredibly challenging for parents and children. Kimberly works with children and their parents as they navigate those tricky and often highly conflicted waters. Helping families adjust to new situations and come to creative solutions is a passion for Kimberly. 
 
Kimberly is certified in perinatal mental health; this encompasses the scope of mental health during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Depression, anxiety, OCD and other mood disorders can onset during the perinatal period, not to mention the transitions in the family. Kimberly is passionate about helping families conquer the mental health challenges and transitions that often occur during the perinatal period. 

Kimberly has been working with couples since 2009 in premarital and marriage counseling drawing from several different resources and incorporating online assessments and tools to enhance the relationship.
