Hi! As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I see my role in the counseling process as that of a "change agent". Someone who is meeting you at possibly one of the worst times in your life and saying "I'm willing to walk with you through this journey". My desire is to help people who are tired of living a life that no longer works for them. Often stressful life events, such as relationship challenges, job problems, health issues, or coping difficulties can trigger suffering and the need for support.
My method of counseling is cognitive behavioral therapy because the way we think impacts the way we act. Neglecting our own needs due to stress can lead to mental and physical decline. Asking for help is challenging but it is the best gift we give to ourselves.
I believe people are resilient but there are times when even the strongest of the strong need help. Maya Angelou, said it best in her poem "Still I Rise" as she speaks to our inner strength and how no matter what the circumstances-WE CAN RISE!
Since graduating from Dallas Baptist University in 2005, I've been counseling for over a decade and continue to be passionate about mental health. I believe mental health is 'everything' because it impacts everything! I am a person of faith. While working in private practice, in Texas (License #64685), for the past eight years, I have witnessed a lot of suffering. Some people endure more suffering in life than others but suffering with faith versus no faith makes all the difference! Everyone has a spirit but not everyone honors that part of themselves. I try to help people value both their mental health and their spiritual life because without them there is no peace.

Kimberly was excellent at helping me process through a difficult situation I was having with my family. She was great at listening to me and asking me tough questions that helped me to understand how I felt and how to navigate my situation and move forward.
