Kimberly is passionate about the care and recovery of those who have faced trauma caused by domestic violence, sexual assault, generational harm, emotional neglect, attachment wounds, divorce, singleness, and more.
She invites you to learn to speak aloud your unique life story where she believes you will learn to heal from the negative impact of anxiety, depression, isolation, etc. caused by difficult experiences and circumstances. Much of the work you will do in session with her rests at the intersection of relational neuroscience and the art of healthy attachment.
Together, she will help you discover healthier coping skills, learn secure attachment, boundaries, mindful body awareness, and decision-making skills. She believes we all work from the perspective that we make decisions based on the information available to us, and seeks to empower you through psychoeducation.
Kimberly has earned a Master of Arts in Counseling from Western Seminary, and has pursued extensive training in the art of identity formation and trauma recovery. She’s a Nationally Certified Counselor and is dually licensed as an associate and intern in Washington and Oregon. She is under the supervision of Lori Whittaker, LSCW and training of Byron Kehlor.
Additionally, she is a Story Informed Trauma Therapist, is trained in SYMBIS Premarital Counseling, and is certified as a Gottman Level One Marriage Therapy.
She is a member of the American Counseling Association.
