“Let there be a place somewhere in which you can breathe naturally, quietly, and not have to take your breaths in continuous short gasps.” – Thomas Merton

Welcome, friend, to my little space on the Internet. May it be a place where you can breathe and rest and perhaps find a bit of encouragement for your journey toward life and health and wholeness.

If this is your first visit, let me introduce myself and tell you a bit about what you’ll find here. My name is Kim, and I am a clinical psychologist who writes, speaks and teaches about anxiety, spirituality, women, and sexuality. I am passionate about helping people experience wholeness in all realms of life. I am a transplanted northerner who now calls Tennessee home, along with my husband of 18 years and my four affectionate, demanding, thoughtful and hilarious kids. You can find my bio here.

You may have found my site in search of a counselor for yourself or a loved one.  I am a therapist in private practice who is humbled to walk with people in and through seasons of loss, joy, pain, brokenness and restoration. Take some time to look around and get to know me. Feeling safe and comfortable with your therapist is the foundation to a successful therapeutic relationship. You can find more info about my counseling work here or here.

I’m also a writer. I periodically publish articles around the web or here on this site, and you can also get more info about my books here. You can read reviews and find a link to order my most recent book, Things Your Mother Never Told You: A Woman’s Guide to Sexuality (InterVarsity Press Books, 2014) here. You can find reviews and info about my first book, Stronger Than You Think: Becoming Whole Without Having to be Perfect (InterVarsity Press Books, 2007) here.

Are you looking for a speaker for your retreat, conference or event? You can get information about my speaking engagements here.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you’ll find words of hope here. May you know and meet God’s grace today.

Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. 2 Corinthians 4:16 (The Message)
