CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT.
Sometimes we're trapped by self-defeating patterns which keep us from achieving the life we want to live. I specialize in helping my clients to heal and develop self-love and self-trust, transforming their lives, their relationships, and focusing their journey toward strength and empowerment.

Very few of us love and embrace our bodies, often using food, exercise, or surgery to cope with self-hatred. I can help you learn to separate food from feelings, become compassionate toward your body, and develop a more holistic relationship to yourself.
I help my clients identify the trauma in their lives that's holding them back from self-acceptance, self-love and happiness. Trauma may have been caused by abuse and neglect, violence, or childhood tragedies... but by learning to accept the role this trauma has played in our lives, we can learn to overcome the pain from our past and live a life free from trauma. Using the proven technique of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) we can develop distance from the trauma, and truly heal wounds.
I help my clients address a range of addictive behaviors, including alcohol and substance abuse, food, sex, gambling, and codependency (addiction to others). By identifying the root of the behavior, we can learn to deal with life on life's terms, deal with uncomfortable feelings, and develop healthy coping skills.
I always left Dr. Kim feeling so good after every session we had. Whether we delved deep and really worked out some issue or we just spent the session talking about my week. I always left feeling better no matter how my life stood. And always because I knew someone cared.

I want to take a moment to thank you again for all your wisdom and support and the tools you have given to me for life altering changes —the journey continues to be blessed and I remain strong—I am at peace and so very happy—it will be 5 yrs of sobriety on the 14th of this month!
I met Dr. Kim when I would say I was at my bottom. I had been through a rehab that helped, but didn't heal. I had stopped drinking for about 11 months and thought I could handle drinking. Needless to say, I ended right back where I started...Unable to stop. Kim was my savior. She seemed to "Get me" right from the beginning and the relationship we developed was amazing!
