Kimberly Hauser

(MA, MSW, LISW-S)

About Me

Hello! My name is Kimberly Hauser. I earned my undergraduate degree in Psychology and my Master of Social Work and Master of Psychology degrees from the University of Cincinnati. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with a Supervisory endorsement. I have over 14 years experience working as a therapist.

My focus has been on working with teens, young adults, individuals and families to address a wide variety of concerns related to anxiety, depression, self esteem, parenting, life choices, changes and times of transitions and family issues.

I work with my clients to identify and respect where they are and where they would like to go. My style is based on cognitive behavioral therapy and focuses on a strength based, solution oriented approach. My goal is to create an atmosphere where you feel comfortable and listened to and see value in our time together. In my work with teens, I have developed a great understanding of their unique challenges - from academic pressures and demands, relationships with peers and families, and developing a sense of who they are and future goals related to college, work and achieving independence.

Thank you so much for reaching out and seeking support. I am looking forward to working with you.

Kimberly is warm, supportive and easy to talk to. In just a few exchanges she was able to calm some of my anxiety and gave me a new, more positive outlook to navigate a particularly painful situation. After my sessions with Kimberly I always feel lighter, calmer and better about myself and whatever is going on. Highly recommended!

Highly recommended.

I came out of a rough breakup. I was an emotional train wreck, she helped me get not only back on track but onto a much better one. She helped me to identify and address some life long problems that we're causing me some headaches.

Thank you so much Kimberly

Good listener and challenges your views on things

Written by E.M. on Aug 30, 2020 after counseling with Kimberly for 4 months on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and career difficulties

I’ve seen therapists several times throughout my life, and I’ve even seen a couple psychiatrists.
Kimberly was the only one who actually ever helped me work through a lot of my issues, and was the only one to notice and suggest that I might have ADHD. A subsequent visit with a psychiatrist confirmed that, and my entire life has changed for the better!! I’ve started exercising and eating healthy for the first time in my life, and it’s (almost) all because of Kimberly and the teen counseling app. I seriously can’t say enough good things about both.

Kimberly is such a wonderful therapist and I am grateful to have been matched with her. I haven’t had much luck with a therapist who really understands the root of what I am working through and holds me to my best self. She listens and offers really helpful feedback and advice. It feels like talking to a good friend who isn’t afraid to tell me the truth and offer comfort at the same time. Highly recommend!

Kimberly has been extremely helpful. I’ve never talked to anyone about my mental health issues before and with friends with deeper issues than myself I discredited mine and didn’t know how to articulate them. Kimberly made me feel comfortable quickly and made it easy to talk about things.
