Kim Linnell M.S. Ed; M.A. MHC (expected October, 2022) Prior to becoming a therapist, Kim worked for more than twenty-five years in school and university settings as an advisor and teacher to immigrants and international students. Her work in multicultural settings has trained her to see life from another’s perspective and to be an advocate for those on the margins. Kim applies these skills to the therapeutic process by creating a warm, welcoming, and comfortable atmosphere for her clients. Given how important trust and connection are to positive therapeutic outcomes, she takes the time to understand the people she works with and the problems that they bring to therapy before embarking on a treatment plan that best suits her client’s needs and goals.
Kim draws from several theoretical approaches such as person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and emotionally focused therapy. As a life-long learner, she is constantly seeking opportunities to grow in her therapeutic skills to serve her client’s better. She has earned a Level 1 Certificate in Individual Emotionally Focused Therapy and is currently working on becoming certified in the Gottman method of marriage counseling. She is a certified PrepareEnrich facilitator and a trained spiritual director. Kim enjoy working with individuals across the lifespan as well as couples, and she looks forward to joining you on your journey towards healing, wellness, and growth.
