About: Kim started working in the field of counseling in 1994 as a Pastoral Counselor and in 1996 became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Kim takes a cognitive approach to her therapy using the assistance of homework to help the client put into practice what they are working on in therapy. Kim believes that for her clients to achieve long-term success once therapy is over, it is important the client is actively involved in establishing goals for their treatment.
Kim comes alongside her clients assisting them in what changes they need to make in their life so the changes can be lifelong. In these changes, the client will uncover ways to understand themselves better and in turn live better lives. Kim’s personal spirituality and faith is important to her, and therefore makes it an important part of her therapy process.
Kim completed her undergraduate work at Western Maryland College (McDaniel College) and finished her graduate work at the University of Maryland at Baltimore. Kim has been married for 30 years, has two children, and one dog who is older than the whole family.
