Reset You Coaching Services, LLC.
The ideal client is between the ages of 25-to-55-years-old, the overthinker and undervalued individual that became disconnected with-self and their deeper desires. This type of disconnection caused them to remain in unhealthy relationships and situations, resulting in around-the-clock negative self-talk (I'm not enough; if only I'd stop doing this or that, or lose some weight and be more supportive—things would be better). My client(s) want to change their situations but are unsure how to do it. As a coach, my role is to hold a space for processing and growth through the power of human experience to support them on their journey.

My goal is to help empower people to live their lives as fully as possible. I believe we all want to feel safe and understood in the context of our unique histories and present circumstances. However,there are times when everyone gets stuck. We may come to desire help letting go of the pain from our past so we might develop new joyful and productive ways to live our lives now. I've done this work with individuals, couples and families, in private practice and in agencies for over 30 years.

You don't have to be blindsided trauma triggers in relationships. You struggle with emotional ups & downs, feeling like you're always on the verge of losing control. You're drawn to the same type of relationships over and over, even when your needs aren't met & you keep getting hurt. You feel like you're not capable of finding love, you feel alone, broken. You dream of a more connected, more secure, more peaceful life, but you can't figure out how to get there. Does this sound familiar? Problems in relationships come from old ways of coping that now get in the way. You're not broken, you're injured, and your injuries are treatable.

It's not always easy to pick up the phone and make the initial call to reach out for help. It seems the last thing we want to do is talk about our problems especially to a total stranger. If you are reading this then you are considering making that call. I offer a safe and nurturing environment for problem solving and healing to take place. I have an eclectic approach to therapy and will employ tools that are based on your individual needs. We will work at your pace and comfort level to effect the changes you wish to make.

Having lived through a difficult life myself, I know the power of psychotherapy integrated with spirituality to bring permanent change to people's lives. I incorporate Attachment Theory (why we are the way we are); with Narrative Therapy (making meaning of and rewriting your life story); integrated with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Psychoanalytical Therapy to make meaning of and bring change to our patterns of thinking and behaving." Kimberlie has post graduate training at Harvard University and Duke University in ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, depression and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I want to help people discover, think about, give meaning to, and find compassion for, alienated parts of themselves that are repressed and forbidden, containing unmet needs, historic conflicts, and unfulfilled dreams. Reunion with these parts can help people better understand their current behaviors, thoughts, and feelings and develop options for changing old patterns in their relationships with themselves, partners, and work that were once effective defenses against psychological pain. Therapy helps us become more fully alive, creative, connected to others, and free to be ourselves with less, and perhaps more realistic, fear-- individually, in our families, cultures, and society.

Most of us go through difficult periods of time in our lives. Whether this suffering is physical or emotional, it can be overwhelming. As a therapist, my practice is centered around working with individuals who find that despite their successes and best efforts, they experience a sense of suffering and lack of meaning in daily life. This dissatisfaction can result in feelings of shame, anger, loneliness, numbness, relationship troubles, depression, and worthlessness. You are not alone. Our work together will support you in your goals towards well-being and growth.

I believe that when individuals are ready to receive help, they will benefit greatly. Those I serve have sought assistance because they seek to move beyond their struggle, not because they had been asked to do so. This is not to say that those who have been encouraged haven't benefited as well. The approaches used allow me to serve those who are experiencing stress, anxiety or trauma. I also assist those who are ready to find their life's purpose but feel that they need the extra support in meeting this goal.

Throughout our lives, we encounter a variety of natural transitions, some of which challenge our ability to cope. Death, divorce, life threatening illness, career change, marriage, becoming a parent, spiritual or existential crisis...to name a few. In an attempt to adjust, many of us experience emotional distress. I would be honored to work with you to provide support. I enjoy working with people of all ages including young children and teens. Through talk therapy, expressive arts, sand tray, and engaged play, my goal is to make each client feel prioritized, heard, cared about, valued, and nurtured throughout their process.

I want to help you live a life you like. If you struggle with anxiety, depression, rumination, stress, getting stuck in patterns you'd like to change, or recent life transitions, I can help you struggle less, feel more comfortable with yourself, and obtain usable tools to cope with whatever may come your way. These skills will be tailored to you, with a focus on skills that you can use long after therapy has concluded. Our work will center primarily around current patterns and experiences, as well as ways to help change them in the here and now. To do this, I get to know you, what is working for you, and what isn’t working for you.

The decision to look for a therapist takes strength and courage. Therapy is a resource that promotes healing and growth; and as amazing as that is, it can also be intimidating. The heart of the work we will do together centers around supporting you to heal, work towards changing your thought process and to help you develop skills to work through challenging life situations. I use a combination of therapeutic techniques to help support you to identify and process through areas that you feel are impacted negatively. Working together, I will support you towards healing and empower and guide you to move forward in a healthier way.

A therapy relationship that is working well supports your curiosity about yourself, openness to possibilities, and capacity to transform vulnerabilities into areas of strength and growth. My approach to therapy involves using respectful, empathic listening to create a safe place where you can bring difficult and painful feelings and life situations - a place where you don't have to be alone with them. Through our work together, you experience yourself differently. In therapy, you can try out new ways of being who you are, and when you're ready, you can bring these into the rest of your life.

What type of California mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in California?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
