About the practice

Kim did her graduate work in counseling psychology, a specialty within professional psychology focused on facilitating personal and interpersonal functioning.    This specialty emphasizes the importance of providing support for emotional, social, vocational, educational, health-related, developmental, and organizational concerns across the lifespan.   

In addition to helping those with more serious symptoms, counseling psychologists are uniquely trained to help people navigate the stressful life events that ALL of us face.  At Carolina Counseling Psychology, we provide “real therapy to real people.”
