Individual Psychotherapy & Couples Counseling
Women's Sexual Health, Intimacy and Relationships
At times we all need extra support and help with overcoming difficulties.

I am a holistic therapist and certified sex therapist with over 10 years experience working with individuals and couples. I am passionate about working with individuals and couples who are creative and open-minded. As a holistic sex therapist, I specialize in the treatment of women’s health, body image, gender spectrum, sexual wellbeing, intimacy, relationship issues and eating disorders. I also specialize in the treatment of eating disorders and related issues, such as anxiety, depression and body image issues.

From this work, I have learned to recognize that one size does not fit all. I tailor my clinical approach to fit the unique needs and strengths of each individual; looking at the entire person, rather than a disorder or label.

My professional and personal journey have led me to blend Western Psychology and Eastern Philosophy practices, mindfulness, somatic, meditation. compassion, breath and bodywork, and the creative healing arts when appropriate.

I've known Kim personally and professionally for 13 years. She is a trusted friend and colleague. Her insights into the field of mental health and wellness are phenomenal. I learn from her every time I talk to her. She has a depth of warmth and compassion and is able to empathize with ease. In addition, she has great presence and a joy for life that comes across consistently. I always feel inspired after having connected with her, and highly recommend her to anyone seeking personal transformation and growth.

I have had the privilege to know Kimberly both professionally and personally since 2003. She is a dedicated, compassionate, and non-judgmental therapist. Her style is personal, empathetic, and always in tune with the needs of the client. Kimberly continues to further her skills by attending workshops, events, and mentoring aspiring therapists. She is an asset to the counseling and healing profession. If you are in the process of self-discovery or having difficulty coping with life's ups and downs you will not be disappointed with Kimberly's work. She's a fantastic person and a talented professional.
