How Counseling Works:
Kim exhibits a down-to-earth style in therapy that makes others feel comfortable, accepted, and believed in. She provides a safe, compassionate, nonjudgmental environment so that you may explore your current roles, relationships, and feelings to the fullest extent. Then, she helps you determine the action steps needed to move towards where you want your life to be. In counseling, you will find closure and resolve the painful emotions from the past while transforming the present in order to reach the full potential of tomorrow.
