- (Carroll, Missouri)
"For ten years I was stuck in an endless cycle of addictive behavior, self hatred, and despair, while trying and failing to break myself free from it. Kim helped me work my way through it with such gentle understanding, and she taught me so many things that all contributed to my healing. But learning from her how to correct my misconceptions of what God is like, and developing a deeper relationship with Him as a result, has made the change irreversible."
- Julie, Missouri
"Kim has been an outstanding help to me in my journey towards sexual and relational wholeness. She has been very empathetic and easy to talk to and that has made it so much easier for me to reach out for the help I need. She is very knowledgeable, and insightful and she does a great job of challenging me without pushing me too hard. I feel like I can trust her and that's something that I don't say about very many people."
- Jennifer, Missouri
As a pastor and counselor, I’ve benefited from consulting with Kim on strategies to minister to the hurting folks in my city. I have found her to be exceptionally knowledgeable, compassionate, and trustworthy. When I talk to Kim I can count benefiting from her keen insight, and walking away with some of her infectious joy.”
