Hi! I’m Kim King. Thanks for visiting my website. I’ve been a practicing therapist since 2007. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and an Ordained Elder in The United Methodist Church. Helping people heal and realize their true potential is my calling. I believe that the emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical components of humans are inextricably intertwined. Therefore, all aspects of the human must be and are by default, engaged in the therapeutic process for change to occur. When you work with me, we will work from a holistic stance that includes every part of you.
Prior to working as a therapist, I served United Methodist congregations in Pastoral roles for 10 years and held a variety of corporate (Fortune 500) roles prior to my congregational work. I am a graduate of Christian Theological Seminary (MDiv & MAMFT) and Indiana Wesleyan University (BSBA, Magna cum Laude.) I am also an AAMFT (American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy) Approved Supervisor.
I work with individuals, couples, and families in ways that allow you to explore life’s challenges and create opportunities for healing and growth so that you can live into your full God-given potential. Being invited into the inner lives of my clients is an honor that I hold in sacred space. My style is warm, open, non-judgmental, and direct. I am ready to help you successfully navigate the challenges that have you considering therapy. Together we can explore what’s got you stuck, recognize where you want to change, increase insight, and develop skills and habits that help you to keep what works, discard what does not become a more emotionally healthy you.
CLINICAL SUPERVISION PHILOSOPHY
As a clinical supervisor, I support the development of novice clinicians by opening space in which my own education, training, skill, professional experience, and life journey facilitate learning for the supervisory system and provide the necessary ground for the development of the clinician-in training as she or he wrestles with the challenges inherent in personal and professional growth and development.
EXECUTIVE COACHING PHILOSOPHY
My coaching philosophy is to create a safe, open, non-judgmental space wherein professionals are unencumbered to explore current states and to identify and clarify opportunities for growth. In this supportive environment, professionals are encouraged to retain what is working well and freed to discard what no longer supports professional and personal wellbeing. Collaboratively, we identify new growth opportunities and develop an action plan that supports the desired change.
