Therapists

Hello, I’m Kimtrese! My purpose is to journey alongside you as you do your healing work. As a military veteran, I have been exposed to diverse cultures and can identify with challenges related to this lifestyle. I carefully create supportive, nonjudgmental spaces that make it safe for you to explore the difficulties that may be preventing you from living your best life. My greatest reward as a professional helper is watching my clients go from despair to possibility.

I will aid you with releasing the ties of the past that may have attributed to today’s burdens. I will assist you in identifying and replacing learned patterns of behavior. We will identify your inner strengths and build your new “Normal” I have a practical approach in which I implement art, music and other creative avenues that treat the body, soul, and spirit. We will work on building skills in the areas of reducing stress, regulating emotions, solving problems and building healthy interpersonal relationships.

I graduated from Liberty University with a Masters degree in Human Services/Marriage and Family Counseling and a Masters degree in Professional Counseling. I am also a certified clinical trauma professional. My goal is to transform the world by helping its women heal.
