Professional Statement

I am a licensed clinical social worker and former family law attorney. For over 10 years I have worked with individuals facing a range of issues that have impacted their ability to live fuller lives. Life presents us all with challenges, from expected life transitions to unforeseen crises. I work with clients to better understand life's problems, identify individual strengths and develop new coping skills to meet and exceed these challenges. I take an eclectic approach to counseling, tailoring treatment methods to best meet each individual client's goals. For some clients an insight-oriented or psychodynamic approach works well. Others may benefit from a combination of relational or behavioral approaches, coupled with learning concrete skills for addressing issues. Still others find that a supportive and compassionate listener is what is needed to help them reach their own answers. Regardless of which theoretical model is used, I place a great deal of emphasis on the therapeutic relationship and believe strongly in the importance of collaboration between client and therapist and empowerment of the individual. The foundation of my approach is client-centered and non-judgmental, and always comes from a place of support and compassion.

I've been seeing Dr. Shapps for two months and am truly pleased with the care I've received. She is prompt, professional and quickly gets to the root of my problems. She makes connects other professionals never have. She is very easy to talk to, makes me feel comfortable and has a lovely office. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking psychological care, particularly first-time therapy goers – as her approach is gentler than some others I've been to.

She was very nice, it just wasn't a fit for me personally -- I have a hard time finding a therapist I am comfortable opening up to so I don't think this is necessarily a reflection on her. Would recommend to others!

Kimberly is really nice and kind, a gentle listener. I don't think we are personally a good fit (finding a therapist that fits you well is basically like dating!) but I enjoyed her presence, reassuring words, and her attitude.

Right away Kimberly's calm demeanor and patience comforted me enough to open up immediately. I still see her regularly and I already feel better knowing that every session is going to bring clarity in some way.

Very calm, patient, and soothing. I'm very happy that she is so courteous and doesn't force me to talk about anything I'm uncomfortable about.

She was great at giving advice, listening, and engaging in thoughtful dialogue--which is great for a counseling session. I am seeing her again on Wednesday because I liked her so much!
