More About Kim

Whether you’re struggling with aging, feeling “stuck” or unhappy, parenting, a late-in-life ADHD diagnosis, work stress or burnout, accepting your body, low self-esteem, or pain and complications in your relationships, I’m here to help. As a psychotherapist, my goal in sessions is to empower my clients so that they may overcome any and all of life’s hurdles.

Through psychotherapy, we can change the pain we all experience into opportunities for healing, growth, and self-actualization, becoming the person we want and are fully capable of being! This powerful process allows us to reconnect with our inner wisdom, fostering self-compassion and accessing the strengths that are already within us. By treating ourselves with kindness, we shift from being our harshest critic to becoming our strongest ally, capable of setting healthy boundaries and improving our relationships. This shift not only boosts our confidence and improves the quality of our lives and relationships, but research also suggests that receiving understanding support rather than criticism allows us to learn from our past and achieve our goals.

I trained at the University of Toronto and continue to pursue advanced professional development as a psychodynamically informed psychotherapist, focusing on areas related to self-compassion, grief, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I deeply care about all of my clients’ parts – past, present, future, mental, emotional, and physical. I encourage practices that bring compassionate self-awareness into focus.

If you feel like my approach resonates with you, let’s connect and take the first step toward following your inner wisdom and discovering your life’s purpose, together!
