About Kimberly

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 worked as a volunteer in the field of alcohol and drug addiction, with families, and completed 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.


​Personally, Kimberly has raised three daughters, who are now adults. She is familiar with and understands the challenges marriages face in raising a family and navigating daily life while staying connected with each other over time.
