Counseling and Coaching.

Kimberly Hooss, M.Ed., LMHC, NCC

Therapy can seem mysterious and intimidating. My role as a therapist is to support and facilitate this process, which can vary widely among people. Often, confronting those things that we avoid out of fear transforms our perspective and allows us to narrate a new story. I hold a belief in each individual’s innate wisdom, intelligence and ability to heal given the right conditions.

Therapy can help in many ways…

addressing symptoms, working with our thoughts and emotions, developing relationship skills, processing our experiences and integrating trauma- through these things we begin to know ourselves in new ways, developing identity and realizing and acting on values. Our life stories become more full, rich and meaningful.

I currently work with individual adults...

and welcome all sexual orientations, gender identities, ethnic, religious, immigrant, and socio-economic backgrounds. Some of the issues I work with are: trauma, anxiety and mood disorders, grief/loss, relationship and communication issues, identity,  stress, career, transition/phase of life and women’s issues.

I offer a holistic, developmental, and strengths-based perspective and strive to be multiculturally competent. I utilize primarily emotion-focused,  mindfulness and somatic approaches, ACT and family systems theories. Treatment is collaborative and highly individualized. I offer a variety of services in hopes of finding each individual’s natural path to health and wellness.
