Unresolved trauma and loss can lead to physical and emotional pain. Counseling is an effective tool for rediscovering self-compassion and alleviating some of this pain. To open your heart and share your life with someone takes courage and strength. As a therapist, Kim draws from various therapy methods including relational, mindfulness-based, cognitive-behavioral, and strength-based approaches. In addition, she is a certified grief recovery specialist. Whether the loss be divorce, worsening health, death or job loss, she has the tools to help you work through your unresolved grief.  Kim specializes in working with individuals struggling with depression, grief/loss, anxiety, life transitions, and chronic illness.

Human connection and relationships have an impact on your quality of life. Kim not only uses relational therapy to connect with you in a more meaningful way, but to help you find more meaning in the relationships in your life. She uses mindfulness-based practice to help those who are suffering with anxiety, depression and grief. By becoming more aware of your senses and being more present in the moment, this can calm your mind and decrease suffering.

Change can be overwhelming and scary, but being fully present with someone as they move forward with change is powerful. With Kim’s extensive training in motivational interviewing she can help you to create realistic goals to empower you to find meaning in your life. Kim’s approach is compassionate, warm, and honest with the focus being to help you facilitate change in your life.

Kim is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and has been in practice for almost 20 years. She received her Master of Social Work degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH in 2000.
