Kim Rees,MA, LMHC


My heart is to come alongside those who are hurting with the realities of life and walk alongside them with hope and compassion.  My passion is to meet people where they currently are but also to love them well enough not to let them remain there but to find true hope and healing. Each person has been uniquely created and has value and worth, therefore, the counseling process is collaborative and tailored to meet the needs of the client. I have over 20 years of experience working in mental health in a variety of settings.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12
