Kimberly Kenser

(LCSW)

About Me

Hi! I am an LCSW licensed in the state of Arkansas. I’ve been a social worker for 7 years but have been working in the mental health field for almost 10 years. I have experience working with a variety of ages from adolescents to older adults. I have worked with people covering a range of concerns including depression and anxiety, social issues and family/parent concerns.

I believe everyone deserves to be treated with empathy, decency and respect. I believe in building a professional and therapeutic alliance is our greatest tool for change. My approach includes using techniques from cognitive-behavioral, humanistic and existential theories but will also adapt to the individual.

You’ve already taken the initial steps towards healing and I look forward to joining and supporting you along the way.

Blessings & light,

Kim

Written by A.J. on May 22, 2021 after counseling with Kimberly for 3 months

Kimberly has been great! I have talked with her for almost four months and I have seen huge improvements in my mental health. I have struggled with anxiety and depression for almost 20 years and this is the first year I feel like I am in control of both. I highly recommend giving Kimberly a chance.

Kimberly has been exactly what my daughter and I needed. It’s been a really tough year in so many ways. She’s helped provide support, care, and a path ahead. Awesome!

Kimberly is very kind and is easy to talk to. Never rushes me into diving into the past if I’m not ready rather she encourages me to talk about what’s on my mind. Understanding of my sometimes erratic thoughts and has provided me with techniques to calm my anxiety. I enjoy speaking with her. She has a special kind of softness and empathy about her. Highly recommend!

I’ve only been in sessions with Kimberly for a few weeks, but it has really made a difference. She is very attentive and listens to my concerns. She is great about checking in on me during the week. She has been great about scheduling sessions around my hectic schedule. She has provided me with so much encouragement in such a short amount of time. I feel heard and understood. I’m grateful to have her as my counselor.

Kim is always so attentive and compassionate. Seems to know when I need to hear from her too! There is never anything I don’t feel I can say and Kim always responds quickly and I feel by my side through the day to day (sometimes hour by hour issues)!
