Life challenges are expected, but they can lead to feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, and stuck. You may be seeking therapy for immediate relief, or for resolution of long-standing issues that are hindering you from experiencing a more fulfilling life. I utilize solution-focused interventions to maximize coping skills and address urgent concerns that may be interfering with your daily functioning. Exploring, addressing and resolving past issues, experiences, or traumatic events is also an important component of the therapeutic journey.

Despite your best efforts lack of change is compelling you to courageously consider another approach. Trauma or PTSD may haunt you with painful memories, nightmares, anxiety, sleep problems, depression, grief, or relationship problems. You may be unsure what you experienced is considered traumatic yet it continues to interrupt your life. I’ve been honored to help many clients reconnect with their authentic selves so they can lead a fulfilling life, including the unique challenges of working in frontline, mental health, and emergency services. If you feel ready enough to begin healing, you are in the right place.

Hi, my name is Kim Davis, and I am so pleased that you have made a choice to find a professional counselor to assist you in reaching your full potential. I primarily subscribe to Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, which is more of an action-oriented approach to mental health. In counseling, that means that together we will examine your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors and learn how to manage them in a more realistic, productive way. We will work to ensure those self-defeating thoughts no longer control your life! Please reach out with any questions and let’s get started on working through things together!

**Evening and weekend appointments available.** Are you wondering if you need therapy? Some people think you need to be in a crisis or have experienced a traumatic event to seek therapy or counseling -- not true! Most often daily living can create enough internal stress that our little inner voice keeps asking “maybe life could be better, if only…”. Listen to that little voice inside you, then call me to help! The decision to seek help can be difficult the first time, and finding the right therapist can be challenging too, but don’t let that stop you from making the most rewarding and beneficial decision you’ll ever make.

What type of Metairie 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 Metairie?
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.
