Choosing a mental health provider can feel daunting. I approach treatment with the philosophy that the foundation for positive change begins with a strong therapist-client relationship and that individuals can find meaning and thrive even amidst life’s most challenging chapters. I am experienced in treating adults with a range of mental health challenges including anxiety, depression, trauma, and life stressors such as relationship and work difficulties. I also specialize in helping clients and their loved ones cope with medical conditions such as pain, insomnia, and cancer , as well as other physical illnesses or disabilities.

I see individuals from two special groups: alcoholics and their family members and cancer patients and their caregivers.
Most of us are stuck in our heads, struggling with competing ideologies, worldviews, and internalized (usually critical) voices from our past. Using empathetic active listening and body-focused inquiry, I will work with you to create safe space within which to explore who you are and replace confusion with clarity---a body-based "felt sense" of what's true that becomes an increasingly reliable guide for authentic action.

My specialties are counseling individuals who have cancer and/or who are grieving a significant loss, supporting family caregivers taking care of sick loved ones, & counseling healthcare workers.
If you are in the midst of a daunting medical diagnosis or grieving a painful loss, I am glad you found my page. Perhaps you are caring for a loved one, and find yourself mentally and physically exhausted, or you're a healthcare professional and you're feeling overwhelmed. Or maybe you are about to embark on treatment for cancer and are struggling with a tangled ball of emotions. In my work with clients, I create a safe, compassionate space to unpack and explore these issues, and to be a companion on your journey toward healing, growth, and transformation. Whatever brought you here today: I am here to listen.

I typically work with adults with chronic illnesses such as autoimmune disorders, cancer , diabetes, and kidney disease.
As a clinical health psychologist, I’ve witnessed the impact of stress, anxiety, and feelings of hopelessness as individuals manage their chronic health conditions. These are common reactions to navigating a life-altering health condition. I work with clients to better manage their mental health and chronic illness together to improve their overall health. I take a collaborative approach to therapy with my clients, and I strive to establish a supportive environment where we can discuss your goals for therapy and address the challenges associated with managing chronic illness.

My approach focuses on strengths and what's working in one's life, while also assisting in practical problem solving. Those who want to establish a mind/body/spirit connection and have more joy in their lives will benefit the most by working with me. My excitement for counseling and coaching comes from helping people create wellness and balance, while going through life's transitions: adolescence, college, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging, adjusting to losses and dealing with health issues. I'm also a cancer survivor interested in helping others on their healing journey by phone or in person.

I specialize in trauma, depression, anxiety, ADHD, grief, life transitions (marriage, pregnancy, postpartum, aging/retirement), career/work, women and cancer , etc.
What all of my clients have in common is a desire to be self-reflective (even though this may be scary), to learn more about themselves at a deeper (unconscious) level, and to grow in ways that allow them to have the life and relationships for which their hearts yearn. Psychotherapy is a process of learning to listen to, care for and heal the pained parts of ourselves that burden our mind, body, heart and spirit. Including the body in this process is essential, as it carries our pain until we learn how to engage the brain and body to release our burdens. This is not always easy, but is certainly self-empowering and life-changing.

So many of us have trouble making decisions or deepening relationships, because we learned to connect with others needs above our own. While this was highly adaptive, and even necessary in the past, it can lead to a sense of disconnection and restlessness. Relationally this may manifest as disappointment or unexpressed conflict, due to an engrained pattern of avoidance. In this state, it is difficult to know what actions to take towards change. Reaching out for help, though imperative, can be just as challenging as continuing in the pain. This is what causes most of my clients to reach out.

I have been providing individual, couples, and group psychotherapy for over 25 years. Typically, people enter therapy because they are having problems in their relationships. Successful psychotherapy must focus on helping develop more fulfilling and substantial interpersonal connections. Facilitating a client’s capacity to lead a richer and more emotionally balanced life is the objective. The therapeutic relationship is the road traveled, and enables the client to understand the choices they have made, the associated positive and negative consequences, and the freedom to make new, more effective and satisfying life decisions.

You are seeking therapy because it is time to make a change. Maybe you know exactly what you want to change, and maybe you're still figuring that out, but something about your current experience needs to shift before you can move toward the life you want. As an integrative psychologist, I love helping people uncover what is most important to them, as well as what might be getting in the way, so that they can live with a greater sense of purpose and well-being. I would love to help you do the same.

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

In psychotherapy, the therapist and client commit to work together to facilitate change. My goal is to provide a safe and nonjudgmental space as we focus on issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, adjustment, sexual identity/LGBTQ concerns, and traditional/non-traditional relationships. My approach to therapy is both holistic and mindful. I view the client as a whole, focusing on the need to bring the mind, body, and spirit into harmony while each element plays a role in healing and the creation of change.
