I help Black women in their late 20s to early 30s get out of unfulfilling relationships and recreate self-love & happiness - single or partnered.
You pretend like you’re okay with this “sorta-in-a-relationship-but-not”. He sends “good morning” texts & when you’re together, there’s an intense chemistry like you two were made for each other. Despite that, you’re constantly overthinking his every word and action. You crave planned dates but get “You up?” texts and last minute “hangouts”. You either feel like you’re too much or not enough. You tell yourself to be patient & hope it will pan into an official title. But you’re exhausted being on the rollercoaster of anxiety, hope and disappointment. You’ve tried to end it but you always get reeled back in.

I am so glad you stopped by my profile! Welcome to your healing phase. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, shame, and hurt, you have found the right one. If you often put on a strong face for others or say you like yourself but don’t really feel that way there is help. I know you want to stop feeling anxious, avoiding people, and events. You want the bad thoughts to stop. You may want to get over the grief of losing a loved one, or a divorce. You want to be happy, and to know if you work at it you can be happy again. Your goal is to be whole, loved, and purposeful and that comes with loving yourself, flaws and all.

Hey, welcome! My goal is to normalize therapy and make it accessible to marginalized communities. I identify as a Black Gay man and I have been working with the LGBTQ+ community for over 10 years. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental, & empowering space for my clients. Therapy in communities of color has been taboo, and I hope to change that conversation to normalize mental wellness.

My name is Ashley and I am a healer, therapist, doula, and educator. I am fueled by my charge: to walk alongside Black and Brown femmes as they continue on the ever-evolving process of self-discovery, making adjustments to live in alignment with their desires and express themselves the most authentically. I believe that choosing to heal is a radical act of self-love. I am a Licensed Social Worker and in my practice, I center and prioritize the experiences and healing of Black and Brown Femmes (women, girls). I serve as a guide as clients navigate back to a space of remembering the inherent truths of who they are and desire to be.

I also have subject matter expertise in Christian-, criminal justice-, and African American -related issues.
Someone once said, "The decision to ask for help is not easy and requires courage." Sometimes it is both challenging and absolutely terrifying to invite a perfect stranger into one's space that doesn't appear to be as "put together" as we would like, especially when what has one "falling apart" is substance use. I am of the belief that with a focused mind, determined spirit, and faith, there is no trip DOWN you can't fall UP from.

I get it... It's hard out here. In a world that demands more than it gives, it is imperative that one develops their voice to speak their truth and find their way to liberation and connection. It may feel impossible to find stability and security not only within your environment but also within yourself. As a clinician, my goal is to support you as you find empowerment, enact self-compassion, expand self- awareness, restore and improve relationships with self and others, and find inner security using an interpersonal/relational approach, psychotherapy, psycho-education, and symptom management.

Throughout life we go through tremendous life transitions that can affect us in a variety of ways. These transitions may find us feeling vulnerable, alone, depressed, anxious, and oftentimes hopeless. I am passionate about creating a safe space for my clients to embrace their true thoughts and feelings, void of judgements, as they heal, grow, and welcome self-love. My approach to providing evidence-based counseling stems from a strong foundation of person-centered care, cultural humility, and building authentic relationships with my clients that allows room for positive change.

Patients come to me with several different concerns. I see families, adults, couples and seniors interested in enhancing their lives and building upon what they already use to guide them. I use different modalities to help address those concerns. First, we assess the concerns and develop a plan together. Then we begin our sessions by getting to know each other through a "therapeutic relationship." Followed by methodically working our way through psychoeducation and mixed modalities to address each concern. Periodically, we reelevate your progress and adjust based on your personal needs.

I utilize individual approaches when working with adults to address concerns related to phase of life difficulties, depression, anxiety, prolonged stress, and unresolved traumas. My overall goal as a psychologist is to help individuals develop skills and understanding to improve the quality of their life. Services are self-pay only. The ideal client is an individual who is driven toward self-improvement, desires an end to their difficulties, accepts ownership of their behaviors and actions, and wants to identify the root cause of their current concerns and develop effective understanding and coping skills. www.drkimberlym.com

What type of Capitol Hill, Washington 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Capitol Hill, Washington?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.

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.
