From the beginning, Kimberly will learn about your strengths, goals, beliefs, and current circumstances. She will encourage you to ask questions to learn about the different options within Adlerian talk therapy, art therapy, play therapy, and other strategies to tailor sessions to meet your needs.
You are the expert on you, what has and has not worked for you, and what you want to achieve. Kimberly can guide you through the process of counseling to meet your goals. Whether you have past counseling experience or no idea what to expect, your sessions will focus on what will help you. This collaborative process is based on your needs and will be modified as you meet your goals.
Kimberly lived in Illinois and Arkansas as a child. After college graduation, she loaded up her little Ford Escort and moved to Idaho. Since then, life has included marriage, children, new friends, many pets, and experiencing what the outdoors and Treasure Valley has to offer.
Kimberly's career began working with children and teens. This continued as she operated a licensed home daycare to have more time with her then-young children. As she worked with the parents of children, raised her own children, and reflected on her own childhood, Kimberly recognized the significance of the connections we have with others. Kimberly's studies in Adlerian psychology lead to focusing on helping others with relationships throughout our lives.
As an Adlerian therapist, Kimberly has earned a Certificate of Advanced Professional Studies in Adlerian Psychology. She has continued to serve on the Board of Directors for Idaho Society of Individual Psychology as Secretary for many years and President in 2012.
