I believe that the value of therapy rests in the inherent promise it offers to help you to become your best self. I strive to see you as a whole person - appreciating that many things shape who you are such as your physical health, your spiritual beliefs and the relationships you have. My primary goal is to help you cultivate the life you desire by assisting you to articulate the problems that you are having - now and in the past - and identify practical solutions you can apply to feel better now and over time.

Entrancing Inspirations is all about helping you move from a place of "stuck" to a place of inspired, positive action where you can make magic happen in your life! It happens all too often - a feeling of hopelessness, a feeling of being trapped, or stuck. A tendency to focus on all the things that you "should do" or "should have by now," but don't. Sometimes this is a short lived phase, but other times it seems to swallow you up. You may develop negative habits and patterns as a way to cope. Kim Guche can help you change your limiting, destructive patterns and bring the hope, joy and magic to your life that you long for!

Sherpa is the name for the person in Nepal who carries your baggage when you are climbing up a high mountain. That image fits with my vision of therapy or counseling. I see myself as your servant. I enjoy helping people carry the baggage you bring on the trip. The usefulness of what we do together is dependent on the quality of the relationship we can develop. Do you think that I can help you carry your baggage until you get back on the trail or are high enough on the mountain to see where you want to go?

Therapy can feel broad and overwhelming. To simplify our approach, we'll seek acceptance and control of adversities that seem to dictate your life. Whatever stressors weigh on you, we'll troubleshoot what hasn't been working and process new tools to put in place. It is my responsibility to adapt to your preferences and ways of learning. I'll provide a space for you that can range from open discussion and exploration, to structured activities and weekly goals. Additionally, these steps are flexible and can be done in a matter of time that fits what you hope to achieve. All possible with individual, couples, and/or family therapy.

For a quicker response please email. I provide a warm, safe, nonjudgmental space for clients to feel at ease talking about their distress. As a result, they gain more insights into their thoughts, feelings and behaviors allowing them to see their situation from a different perspective and make necessary changes. While I do not interfere with the process of self-discovery, I believe in challenging problematic thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that contribute to distress and help find healthier more productive ones.

As a psychologist in private practice, I have the opportunity to work with people in order to optimize their emotional well-being. I work collaboratively with individuals to assist their identifying factors which have caused distress. Together we work to discover the obstacles to feeling better. We consider patterns that have developed over time to understand their adaptive benefits and maladaptive consequences. This approach provides opportunities to evaluate and to chart better ways to respond to life's challenges. I utilize a psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral approach with an emphasis on increasing awareness of one's reactions and experiences.

You’ve been working so hard to keep it all together, yet life still feels messy and overwhelming. Anxiety keeps you up at night, and perfectionism destroys any sense of success you start to experience. You’re trying to balance a relationship, get ahead in school or your career, and all the while you’re trying to convince everyone that you’re in control and you know exactly what you’re doing. It’s exhausting, and it’s not getting you any closer to the life you thought you would have by now. You’re here because you are ready to make a change. Let me walk beside you through the process.

Effective therapy develops goals for change. Treatment also supports establishing new ways of experiencing life, behaviors and relationships. My private practice emphasizes making change through openness and trust, and building a personal plan that suits your unique life circumstance. There is no prescription for the length of therapy; some changes can occur with a few sessions and others may taken longer. Having realistic goals can help define when therapy is completed. Please call or email me learn more.
