Kimberly Steffen is a graduate of Concordia University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Kim is currently working under a supervised licensed t-LMHC and holds a holistic view of therapy, looking at how different areas impact the individual. Kim also holds a trauma-focused and attachment perspective on how an individual’s past has influenced and affected the present. Kim has experience working in therapy with children as young as five, middle schoolers, adolescents, and young adults.

Kim earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of South Dakota in 2013. After graduation, she worked with university students as a missionary with Cru (formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ).

Through her work with Cru, Kim developed a passion for helping young adults. After seeing many University students and fellow missionaries struggling with anxiety, depression, and burnout, she became interested in pursuing a counseling degree. In her current training, Kim has become interested in using behavioral and mindful theories within counseling. In her clinical work, Kim has experience using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.

Therapist’s Statement

I love meeting new people, learning about different cultures, traveling, exploring, sipping coffee at a local coffee shop, and enjoying some relaxing time in the hammock. I also have a very spoiled cat!

I love working with children and am passionate about including parents in family sessions. I also enjoy working with teenagers, young adults, and adults and joining them on their journey as they navigate through past hurts and current struggles. I believe that, as a therapist, it is my job to come alongside you on your journey and work collaboratively to find holistic healing through counseling. I believe holistic counseling includes exploring how individuals are mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, as these areas all interact with one another. My goal is to provide a safe therapeutic space where we can process and work through your goals together. Counseling can often be messy and a bit scary at times, but you have a supportive guide in me for the journey. Deciding to take that first step to come to counseling takes courage. I would be honored if you chose me to walk alongside you.
