Dealing with processing and healing from past experiences, whether they happened recently or in childhood? Not sure how you want to show up in your relationships, or how to set boundaries to have healthier dynamics in your relationships? Experiencing imposter syndrome as you enter new phases in your life, whether it be college, employment or relationships? Feeling overwhelmed with the daily requirements of being a human in the current world? You’ve found the right place! Hey! I’m Kimberly. My pronouns are she/her. I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and cat mom. Over the past ten years, I’ve worked as a counselor/therapist at a rape crisis center, domestic violence shelter, family homeless shelter, elementary school and private therapy practice working with families and individuals. In therapy together, we can explore both the past and present to build the future that best fits your goals. I believe that the therapeutic relationship founded in trust, openness and empathy is the most important aspect of therapy. I strive to create that environment so that you feel heard and understood, while also using humor and my down to earth approach to build on your already existing strengths and skills. My two spoiled kittens often make their appearances as well in sessions, whether it be jumping on me unexpectedly or more intentionally to teach how to utilize your own pets for grounding and support! I am a Certified Trauma Professional, and have experience with processing trauma through specific treatment modalities such as Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Somatic (physical) based therapies, including sexual assault, domestic violence and childhood adverse experiences. I am also trained in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, which assists families with children from 2-7 struggling with emotional regulation and pro-social behavior. At this time, I see adolescents (14 and up), adults and couples located in Virginia, Maryland, DC and Florida. https://www.flhealthsource.gov/telehealth/ Reach out for a free, 15 minute consultation to see if we would be a good fit!
