Kimberly Smith

QMHP, Professional Counselor Associate – Therapist

My Bio

I have a deep passion for helping individuals restore a sense of autonomy after experiencing trauma and helping my clients live their best lives. I primarily work with adolescents and adults. It is my hope to build connections and meet you where you are at. My style of counseling is based on creating a sense of safety in your life and cultivating deeper connections within yourself. I primarily utilize a blend of humanistic theory, narrative therapy, client-centered therapy, and EMDR. I believe that you are the expert in your own life. Themes we might discuss involve the framework of communication patterns, self-esteem, and self-worth and building upon your internal strengths. Our collaboration may include exploring areas in your life that are painful, uncomfortable, stressful, or challenging. I will strive to help you feel empowered and create resiliency as we work through these struggles together.

I have experience in working with adolescents and adults who are survivors of sexual violence, and childhood trauma, and individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, and/or PTSD.

I have a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University in Alamosa, Colorado, and I received a Bachelor of Science from Colorado State University in Human Development and Family Studies. I also hold a Master of Arts in Education. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and my three dogs. I love to travel, read, garden, and spend time at the beach.
