Many times people struggle with issues and situations on their own that could be helped with counseling. Seeing a therapist gives people a chance to talk through things with an objective outsider who will listen and help them sort through options, possible outcomes, and ways to change. It also gives people a chance to practice new behaviors and conversations and have someone to check in with once they’ve tried these new things to see if they are working or could be improved.
Kim lives with her husband, and they have an adult daughter and adult son. She enjoys exercise, cooking and entertaining.
