Kim is compassionate, kind and considerate. She is very highly intuitive and can get breakthroughs on self sabotaging thoughts and patterns where others cannot with traditional talk based therapy. I highly recommend her for adults as well as children.


I reached out for help last year when I was not able to access “mainstream” help for my daughter when it was desperately needed. She was able to support us with discussion, activities designed to increase emotional maturity. Kim does not have a hidden agenda. She is not out to take as much money as she can or the like, rather she seems to have a genuine desire to help people. It is a true pleasure to know her, and she has been of immense help to my family. And we love her pet


Our daughter has seen Kim for over 6 months as she suffers from anxiety. Kim has taught her so many different ways to cope with her fears all while making it fun. We have seen a huge change in such a short time.Highly recommend!!
