Kim utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence based practice that addresses how one’s thoughts impact feelings and behaviors.
This type of treatment has been empirically shown to be effective in treating mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and may others.
CBT is designed to empower clients to heal their own irrational thinking with the help of a therapist as educator or guide.
It is a lifelong skill that can be passed along to clients in a short term therapeutic relationship.
Kim has experience in applying CBT principles to those suffering from both mental health and chemical dependency disorders.
Kim also utilizes EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) in her practice. EMDR is an innovative and relatively new method for treating a variety of conditions using light and/or sound cues to stimulate the brain. EMDR directly targets the physical sensations, negative beliefs, and emotional states that contribute to destructive or negative behaviors. It is safe, non-invasive and works without the use of drugs or hypnosis.
Kimberly has a diverse background in all levels of care including inpatient services. She enjoys running groups as well as facilitating individual sessions. Kimberly also provides her clients with a great deal of education while in treatment to empower them to make difficult changes and well informed decisions.
