Hi! I'm Kim (pronouns she/they), just a out queer woman who bucks everything rooted in the binary. Compassionate. Caring. Competent. Direct.
Psychotherapist in Belleville, IL
My experience working with trauma began in grad school, where I worked in a sexual abuse specialty clinic. Through that experience, I learned how to meet clients where they are and the tools needed to make substantial progress.
I work with clients to repair attachment so they can experience safety and happiness within relationships.
Attachment was my primary orientation while working with foster youth, so I have read a lot of books and taken specialized training in order to support people in their journey toward attachment repair.
It is just the basis of what we do - connect emotions, thoughts, and behavior. We identify and modify cognitive distortions and core beliefs to build a healthier you! Trained in TF-CBT, CBT, and CPT (certificate).
Participated in what use to be considered Level 1 and Level 2. Experience with children, teens, adults, and telehealth.
