Hi, my name is Kimberly, and I’m excited about getting to know you! I want your experience with me to be life changing. I have a passion to empower couples, marriages and individuals to renew and live life in their relationships. I have been married for twenty some years (RIGHT?!) and have three amazing children who challenge me in their own unique ways. That being said, I know firsthand the trials that come along with this adventure. All relationships are an adventure. Mine, and maybe yours, has been risky, messy, painful, and downright exhausting at times. I also know how love and the grace of God make all things new again.
I practice what I preach, and that is, “have passions in life that promote self care.” I love hanging out with my family, reconnecting with friends, traveling, and trying new restaurants in the area. I am big time foodie, and my latest exercise craze is indoor cycling!
Okay, now you know a little about me, lets get to the grit of me:
CREDENTIALS + TRAINING
Graduate of UNC Charlotte with a B.A. in Psychology
Masters in Counseling from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary
Prepare and Enrich Facilitator (relationship inventory and skill-building program)
Clinical training in Gottman couples therapy Level 3 (research based approach to couples therapy)
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
With years of experience counseling in State government, pastoral care, and private practice, I offer a diverse perspective on working with a variety of populations. I am extensively trained in trauma-based and relational approaches to achieve wholeness. I have experience in working with couples and family issues, women’s issues – especially trauma, anger, emotional regulation, anxiety and depression.
My specialty is working with clients who are experiencing strained relationships due to crisis, infidelity and betrayal.
I serve my clients with personal attention so I use a variety of approaches, depending on individual needs. I use clinically tested, evidenced-based intervention, and biblically based applications. Weaving these together create a healthy wholeness. To what degree we go with each approach is up to you.
I feel blessed to have witnessed transformation with many of my clients. Your time with me will be real, honest and filled with a dedication to work hard.
The path to healing will sometimes be uncomfortable, yet necessary. I don’t mind journeying with you in the darkness because I know light will soon surface. Who knows – we might even be able to experience some laughter along the way!
