Kimberly works with children/adolescents in the context of their family. Family is a system in which each member has a role to play and rules to respect. Members of the system are expected to respond to each other in a certain way according to their role, which is determined by relationship agreements. Within the boundaries of the system, patterns develop as certain family member's behavior is caused by and causes other family member's behaviors in predictable ways. Maintaining the same pattern of behaviors within a system may lead to balance in the family system, but also to dysfunction. Kimberly helps her patients improve the relationships within the family which are causing sickness.

Our approach to family therapy is to include all members of the family in most family sessions. Sometimes this may include extended family members, e.g. grandparents, nephews etc.. The goal in family therapy is to identify any systemic problem within the family that may be enabling the identified family member with the problem. This may include addiction issues, behavioral issues, severe mental illness, etc.. The therapist will help the family develop healthy solutions to the problems they are facing.
