About Kim: (she/her/hers)

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Clinical Supervisor in Virginia. I earned my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Marymount University, and my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Christopher Newport University.

I am a dedicated therapist specializing in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT). With a compassionate and collaborative approach, I work to empower my clients to embrace their thoughts and feelings without judgment, while fostering emotional resilience and deeper connections. By integrating ACT's mindfulness and values-driven techniques with EFIT's focus on emotional bonding and attachment, I help my clients navigate personal challenges, enhance their emotional well-being, and build meaningful, fulfilling relationships.

I have personal experience with anxiety, panic, postpartum anxiety/depression, ADHD, and perfectionism. I share my personal experience with my clients to normalize and validate their own. I am passionate about guiding my clients towards living authentically and embracing life's full spectrum of experiences, and I am committed to supporting you on your path to healing and growth!

I have specialized training in working with anxiety, mindfulness, gender and sexuality within the LGBTQIA+ community, and providing trauma-informed care for those with trauma and PTSD.

In my personal life, I enjoy spending time outside with my husband, our two sons, and our two rescue dogs, as well as my favorite introvert hobbies of reading, crocheting and doing nail art!
