Kimberley Sterling

(M.Ed., LPC-S)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas. I work with clients from many different backgrounds, and have experience counseling individuals from age 12 onward, as well as couples and families.

My specialty of focus is trauma counseling, but I also have an extensive history of helping with anxiety and depression, as well as relationship difficulties and adjusting to life’s changes. My background includes working with pre-adolescent and teenagers as well. I believe my non-judgmental approach allows me to establish a therapeutic rapport with young clients who just want to be heard and understood.

You’ll find that I have a compassionate approach, and will encourage you to understand that you have someone to walk beside you on your journey to healing. I fully believe in helping people find self-empowerment so that they will be able to discover their own abilities to heal.

This is your safe space for counseling and you are welcome to message me on this site. Please be aware that it is my obligation to respond to messages in no less than 24 hours, but I do make it a priority to check messages as often as possible, and will likely respond in less than that. You do have the option of working with me through messaging, and I can help by providing useful information and tools for you via the messaging platform. You are also welcome to have live session with me, however, if you feel that would be beneficial, and I do those on an appointment basis. All information you provide to me, whether by messaging or any of the live session options, is confidential.

Please be aware that I do check my messages several times per day, but if I am in session or away from my phone or laptop, I may not be able to respond right away. I will, however, respond to your message as quickly as I am able.

If you are experiencing a crisis or emergency and are unable to remain safe, please contact 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.

As I continue working with Kim, the process gets tougher, but I truly enjoy it because I feel so much better for it. Therapy is tough, but she makes me feel confident, encourages me, and I really feel the difference. I’m so happy I’ve found someone who is helping me and is a good fit for me personally!

Kimberley has really helped me to see things from a different point of view. It’s been extremely helpful.

Written by T.I. on Dec 03, 2019 after counseling with Kimberley for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I have been working with my therapist, Kimberley Smith, for close to a year dealing with major anxiety, depression, past & new trauma, chronic stress, family & personal issues, an autoimmune disorder that causes mental health flare ups and more.

Kim is extremely knowledgeable, patient, calm and she can empathize with me on a deep level. She is truly rare and understands all of these layers in a way that no one in my life does or has.

I talk to Kim about everything that I'm going through. I worry & get anxious a lot, but I feel comfortable/safe talking to Kim. I trust her!

Kim is a partner working with me through my mental health maze and the effects that has on my physical health. She cares about my well being like a true friend.

I've been to other therapists. They never understood me or listened like Kim does. I feel more secure about myself when I talk to her. My anxiety calms down, and I feel like I can see light.

I've made a lot of progress (still am) with Kim's compassionate support and guidance, through each step.

Kim is always there for me, and we work through whatever happens or has happened together.

As someone that was hesitant to join, I have to say, I can’t imagine being paired up with someone better than Kimberley! She has been a game-changer in my marriage and personal life and I’m forever thankful.
Kimberley is very skilled in working through problems and has opened our eyes to new possibilities. She has a great way of working you towards a solution rather than pushing you towards something you’re not ready for. She’s patient and very flexible on meeting up.

It is very helpful to have someone that you can trust and feel comfortable sharing life experiences and troubles with an unbiased way. Kimberly is a gem.

Written by M.O. on Sep 08, 2019 after counseling with Kimberley for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Kimberly is a very professional and attentive therapist. I’ve only had one session with her and felt a great difference in my life. She is very non judgmental and meets you where you are at in your situation to help you find relief, without being pushy or too opinionated on your situation. I completely recommend her!

Kim has helped me immensely over the past few months. I don’t know what I would do without her. She is kind and respectful and I know she truly cares about me and my health.

I have really enjoyed working with Kim thus far. She has given me some excellent tools to manage and correct negative thought patterns in my daily life. I am so grateful for her patience, understanding, and just for her listening to me and helping me work through my thoughts.

I've talked to Kim twice and emailed several times with her. She's given me some great tools already! I feel much better knowing I have someone apart from the situation to talk to.
I feel very comfortable talking with her!
