By the time people seek therapy, their lives often seem out of balance. The goal of psychotherapy is to relieve not only current symptoms and problematic patterns, but also to help people gain the insight and practical skills they need to increase resilience and better handle future life challenges. Effective therapy can help clients identify and understand self-defeating behaviors and change dynamics that interfere with intimacy, self-esteem, happiness, success and creative expression. Kimberly’s New York City therapy and coaching practice is grounded in years of clinical experience and reflects her belief in an integrative approach to emotional health and the power of the mind-body connection.  She has an eclectic practice style blending Western treatment models such as psychodynamic psychotherapy, Solution-Focused, EMDR Therapy, DBT skills and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with Eastern mind-body healing arts, relaxation and stress reduction, including Mindfulness approaches.  Her Manhattan psychotherapy practice is devoted to both short and long-term therapy working with adolescents, adults and couples. Kimberly has completed EMDRIA-approved, level II EMDR training and is an EMDR specialist using modified protocols to target specific difficulties. She seamlessly blends this technique, when appropriate, with psychotherapy for trauma resolution, relationship problems, self-esteem issues, anxiety, panic, obsessions, phobias, fear, depression, abuse, anger, guilt, abandonment, pain, addiction, sexual concerns, eating disorders and performance problems. Kimberly is delighted to offer adjunctive EMDR, meditation and stress reduction practices, and other somatic psychotherapy techniques to medical and mental health professionals in Manhattan.
