Personal

Kimberly grew up in Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Georgia in 2008. She discovered a personal relationship with Christ when in college and found her purpose in helping people be who they were created to be. Kimberly loves spending time with her family, including her 2 boys, and activities such as reading, hiking, tennis, University of Kentucky basketball, and mission trips.

Vision

Kimberly believes that we all need supportive relationships and acceptance of “who we are” in order to become what God has designed us to be. She feels that counseling is a way to find this support, a door of hope that leads to transformation and the freedom to reach our personal and relational goals. Kimberly’s dream is to see families and individuals affected by mental health and developmental issues find healing and fulfillment in their life journey.
