I work with parents together and individually to help them understand family structure and dynamics and to make healthy changes in parenting techniques, such as setting boundaries, practicing consistency, using choices and consequences appropriately, and practicing loving detachment. I observe parents and children together and teach effective communication skills. I use art and play therapy with children to encourage emotional expression and processing and to practice relationship skills in the clinical setting. Neuro-Integration and Emotional Freedom Technique support emotional integration, regulation, and coping.

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.
