I've worked with many different therapists in my professional capacity of Student Assistance Program, Clinical Team Leader. I have known Kim for the past five years and have enjoyed working with her in several different capacities. Kim is an expert in the field of anxiety and has provided our staff with several quality trainings on anxiety and related topics. The feedback we received from staff on her trainings has always been "outstanding". She is a strong advocate for children and understands how mental health can impact education . She is very dependable and reliable.
