Professional Counselor Associate
“I am naturally a curious person and I love helping others identify and reach their goals.
I knew I wanted to work directly with people in a helping relationship since late adolescence. A fulfilling career in which I have a direct impact on the psychological health of others drives my desire to live an equilibrated life of intent, significance, and purpose."
In working with clients, Kimberly views the therapeutic relationship as one grounded in values of collaboration, respect, and trust. These essential tenets have an enormous influence on the nature of this alliance and affirms that clients have agency in our work together and that the relationship is not hierarchical.
