Kim is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with a Master’s degree from St. Thomas University in Counseling Psychology. Kim works with early childhood and elementary-aged children and their families and specializes in working with children who have been impacted by trauma and loss, with a strong interest in children and families who have experienced foster care and/or adoption. Kim works to create strong therapeutic relationships with the children she works with and the grown-ups that care for them, approaching challenges from a trauma- and attachment-informed perspective. Kim is a Certified Synergetic Play Therapist and has extensive training and experience with children on the autism spectrum.

Kim has experience working with children and families in a variety of settings including in-home, school-based, day treatment, and outpatient settings. Kim is well-versed in the school system and has specialized training in working with children on the autism spectrum and/or with developmental delays. Kim is a strong advocate for all of the children and families she works with.

As a kinship and adoptive parent in a transracial family, Kim understands the level of complexity that accompanies foster and adoptive families on a personal level. When not working, Kim enjoys yoga, creating, playing games, traveling with her family, and staying active in the communities she finds herself drawn to in various seasons of life.
