Hello, and Welcome!
I enjoy assisting people discover new ways of thinking about and experiencing their life issues, and feeling better, and life management less stressful! I am a good listener and will take the time to make sure you are heard. My experience is diverse, and have worked with clients from ages 2 through 103 with a variety of issues that teens and their parents/grandparents are experiencing, and other problems ranging from trauma, career, family, parenting (children, grandchildren, and adult children), severe mental illness, marital, depression and anxiety, drug and alcohol, sexual life, friendships, medical issues, aging and caring for aging, end of life, and grief and loss, for a sampling. My background includes practicing in Group Home, Nursing Home, Inpatient Psychiatric Unit, Community Mental Health including groups with Federal Probation and Parole and Drug and Alcohol, Native American Health, Foster Care Families, and Employee Assistance Program.
I have been in the behavioral health profession for over twenty six years and my educational background includes a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology (2001) , a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology with Developmental Emphasis and Sociology Minor (1993), and an Associates of Science Degree (1991) .
My focus is holistic, and on the here and now, and how past experiences and future hopes and plans or fears, affect it. If willing, I teach my clients to utilize mindfulness techniques, deep breathing and meditation, their own spirituality, social realm, and health goals. I use cognitive behavioral techniques, Rational Emotive Techniques, Transactional Analysis, EMDR, Inventories, and for help in family issues, systems, among others in a pragmatic fashion. Together, we will find ways to sort out your problems, develop strengths and use them to achieve life goals that keeps in mind weaker areas. Your goals will be our focus in sessions and I will give you help to clarify them as needed. It is my hope that you leave each session feeling as if you have gained something in working toward your happiness, well-being and goals, and that you will feel comfortable in letting me now how I am doing.
I look forward to working with you. I have daytime, and some early evening appointments available.

Kimberlee just gets me! She is so in tune with what I am saying and understands what I mean when I can’t even get the right words to express things. She’s truly a blessing. In the short time I have seen her I have grown leaps and bounds. I had given up hope of being whole and she’s giving me practical tools and amazing advice! On my good days I feel better mentally than I ever have my entire life! My “bad” days are less frequent and less intense as well!
She had been great with my daughter. My daughter sets up the appointment times and days by herself without me asking about it. So when you have a teenager that is doing something positive for themself you know something is right.
I have truly enjoy this online therapy and give it very beneficial.
Kimberlee Thomas is a therapist that is thoughtful, knowledgeable and compassionate. She responds quickly and has even put me in live sessions after hours when my work schedule clashed with the appointments that were available. I’ve done years of traditional therapy and nothing compares to teen counseling with my therapist being so great!
Kimberlee has a good working knowledge of the Bible and uses scripture to encourage and motivate me. I’m very optimistic that I will be able to work through many areas that have weighed heavily on my mind with Kimberlee’s guidance!
Kimberlee is great!
I had to end my subscription because I am a poor single mom, but Kimberlee immediately messaged me and checked back in quickly. She's very kind and intuitive. If you get her, you're quite lucky.
Kimberlee is extremely knowledgeable in so many areas. I have never had a counselor that is so practically helpful during EVERY session. She offers very legitimate advice multiple times during a session and I am growing very quickly from our sessions.
Kim is an awesome person and VERY compassionate and comfortable to talk to. She is nonjudgmental and her experience is priceless. She knows what she is doing. If you need a great counselor who is willing to challenge as well, Kim is the perfect person for you.
Kimberlee is like a comfortable place to land. She listens, voices understanding, and truly has great words of wisdom. I enjoy our sessions, and look forward to them weekly. I have gained a greater balance with our talks.
She is great and patient.
Kimberley is an excellent listener. She certainly hears and understands what I am saying and gives great insight and feedback. After just one session with her I felt very confident in her ability to help me and I'm sure she can do the same for many others.
