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.

Kimberly Haney, Resident in Counseling
Hello, I am a licensed professional counselor in Virginia who is trauma-informed and holds contemplative practice certifications. I predominantly work from a person-centered and solution-focused approach. Sessions are designed to empower and educate by offering a supportive, non-judgmental space to discuss concerns, interests, and opportunities because counseling is not always about past trauma.
I have worked with various groups to help recognize external and internal barriers. Diverse course work reflects an appreciation for influential factors such as family, lifestyle, culture, sexuality, and spirituality. Consequently, I consider a holistic perspective, and systems perspective, and sometimes suggest mind-body practices. Psychoeducational information such as identifying coping skills, understanding thought-behavior cycles, considering social systems effects, and emotional processing may be offered in the session.
Let us start a renewed journey towards your personal growth and life goals. I believe many individuals already have the tools necessary to make desired changes. Life is challenging at its best and sometimes collaborating with a trusted professional is the next best step.
