Kimberly Slagle, LMFT
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. Certified Discernment Counselor. Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator. Gottman and EFT Trained.
Sometimes life brings challenges we are unprepared to cope with. My goal is to help you work through these challenges and live a life worth celebrating. I believe the potential for growth lies within all of us, and that we're all striving to lead meaningful lives. If you're looking to add more fulfillment to your life and relationships with others, I can help.
What Do I Specialize In?
I especially like helping couples who want more intimacy and shared understanding in their relationship, but feel stuck because of differences in needs and poor communication choices.
I teach them how to eliminate judgement and defensiveness from their conversations, compromise around difficult issues, restore fun and passion into their everyday lives, build new rituals of connection, and create an ongoing culture of appreciation, fondness, and respect in their relationship.
I understand how meaningful yet difficult relationships can be. I also know couples can overcome anything and turn their differences into opportunities for growth and connection if they're willing to work for it! I'd like to try and help your relationship heal, and help you both feel happier individually and as a couple.
Is my style right for you?
My therapy style is empathic, yet results driven and solution-focused in nature. In other words, I'll work hard to understand and validate your struggle, but I'll also challenge you to change what’s no longer working and be the best version of 'you' you can be.
I work best with people who are motivated to learn, and committed to creating happier, healthier, and more balanced relationships with themselves and their loved ones. Are you one of these people? If so, contact me today so we can talk more about my services and I how I might be of assistance to you.
