After growing up in Northern California, Kimberly completed her B.S. Psychobiology degree at the University of California, Davis. After a short career in pharmaceutical sales, Kimberly stayed home to raise her three daughters until finishing her M.A. in Marriage & Family Therapy at Bethel Seminary, San Diego, graduating Magna Cum Laude. Kimberly has worked as a volunteer in the field of alcohol and drug addiction, & grief work, completing her internship with the Center for Grief & Care at San Diego Hospice.
Kimberly has served in various ministries and held leadership positions through her church and integrates biblical principles into her practice with faith-based clients. For non-faith based clients, Kimberly's clinical training and clinical background provide a safe & calm environment in which to explore even the most troubling issues.
Kimberly is passionate about reconnecting couples in distress, especially after infidelity. Her training in Emotionally Focused Therapy & EMDR, grief counseling, and special clinical training in treating couples after infidelity provide her with a basis in which to understand couples special needs during difficult times.
Taking a holistic approach to relationships, Kimberly has advanced training to work with individuals & couples throughout their life journey from early adulthood to end-of-life, navigating all of life's transitions (launching from home to college, from college to career, marriage, developing a family, blending a family, and navigating the transition from marriage to divorce).
Personally, Kimberly has raised three daughters, who are now adults, successfully launched! She is familiar with and understands the challenges relationships face in raising a family and navigating daily life while staying connected with each other over time.
