Kim Strong, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Hi, I’m Kim, and I am honored to be a catalyst to healing and change in your life. Everyone’s story is unique and challenging in it’s own way. I believe life is a journey of learning how to be your best self, and this is not always easy. You must be brave. Sometimes we need support in learning how to learn about ourselves. I believe therapy can be an effective tool for gaining insight into who you are now, who you want to become, and how to get there. I’ve worked with many young professionals to develop tools for when they are struggling to balance the challenges of the workforce while facing issues stemming from depression, anxiety, stress, previous trauma, and relationship issues. I also enjoying work with couples and older adults.
style + philosophy
My therapeutic approach is adaptable to each client or couple and influenced by evidence-based techniques drawn from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, the Gottman method, trauma-focused therapy (including EMDR), and a holistic approach to health.You can count on direct and empathetic feedback, and I welcome yours, as well. I highly value psycho-educating my clients in order to heighten self-awareness and increase insight. I view your treatment plan like a road trip we are on together; I have the map and you are the driver. Together, we work to get you where you’d like to go with the goal being to improve your overall wellbeing.
