Kimberly Jeffs, MA, LPCS, SEP
CEO & CPO (Chief Possibility Officer)
ONLY AVAILABLE FOR TREATMENT/LIFESTYLE CONSULTATIONS NOT ONGOING SESSIONS
Kim is a somatic psychotherapist and co owner of NCCR. Kim provides counseling supervision to the team at NCCR as well as to other health care providers in the community interested in psycho biological approaches to mental health. Kim does not currently see clients in the practice for individual sessions but offers 1 time treatment and lifestyle consultations. If you have been in treatment for a long time and are needing to switch gears, just starting the therapeutic process but needing to "cut to the chase", if you want a professional opinion on your mental/physical health treatment plan, you should consider investing in a treatment/lifestyle plan. You will leave the evaluation with recommendations for how best to move forward in your treatment and life! Kim's work with people is experiential in nature even during an evaluation, so roll up your sleeves and get ready to make some changes. She specializes in anxiety and stress related conditions, trauma, physical injuries/medical conditions, surgery preparation, couples therapy and attachment wounds, mindfulness and somatic practices. Her background and training is in somatic psychotherapy, somatic experiencing, marriage and family therapy, creative expression, yoga/mindfulness and transpersonal counseling techniques. Kim has a unique gift of helping people return to the innate wisdom of their bodies.
