Kim Erin OConnor

LPC

About Me

I am an LPC in New Jersey with 30+ years of experience. I worked at East Orange General Hospital from June 1985 - June 2014. I started as a Mobile Crisis Counselor - this means I went into the community to bring patients back to the hospital who were experience a true psychiatric crisis and evaluate the patient for psychiatric commitment. I transfer to there Outpatient Department and treated an array of patients from depression to the persistently mentally ill. While in Outpatient I helped develop and run the MICA (Mentally Ill Chemical Abuser) Program with a counselor from our addiction services. In 1995 I wrote polices and procedures for our first Partial Hospital Program and became the manager of the program. I then went on to help develop the Child and Adolescent Program. At this time I also handled the quality assurance for behavioral health and all the hospitals surveys for behavioral health. I then became Director of Behavioral Health - Inpatient, Crisis, Addiction Services, Partial Hospital Program, and Outpatient.
I believe that in guiding the client through what they believe is their issues I can help them find healing so they can be there best possible selves.

My degree from Iona is in Pastural Counseling!

Dr. Kim has been very good at understanding my needs and concerns with a couple things that I’ve struggled with over the years. Great attention to details, motivational and Dr. Kim has a good sense of humor to life’s highs and lows.
