I am delighted to welcome Kim Strong to the Oasis team. Kim is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over ten years of clinical experience. She specializes in treatment of trauma and PTSD symptoms, grief and bereavement, and Bipolar Disorder.
Kim's treatment approach:
I recognize that people learn and process in various ways. You and I will work as a team to create an individualized treatment plan that works for you.
Therapy can be a challenging process that is worth every ounce of vulnerability and courage you put into it.
My goal is to help you translate your change and growth from the therapy room out into the rest of your life.
What it feels like to be therapy with Kim:
You can expect compassionate authenticity from me in our sessions. By that I mean that I am goal-directed and straight forward in my clinical observations and interventions, but with a tremendous amount of sensitivity to your needs in that moment and beyond.
I welcome and will often elicit feedback from you about how our sessions are going and what kind of progress or setbacks you/we are experiencing. We will work together to make adjustments so that you can get the most out of our work together, and your best interest will always be my priority.
Individual therapy with me is exactly that--individual--meaning that it is an experience that is tailored to you and directed by you. My role, is to be an expert guide in helping direct you towards achieving the goals you set for yourself. And as you evolve in your process of meeting or changing those goals, I will evolve with you.
Sometimes therapy involves discovering new goals or challenges along the way that you didn’t know you had when you first began. My job is to be ready for that. The therapeutic process of change and healing is not always easy but I believe it is always achievable!
I will believe in you and have faith in the process for you, when you cannot always feel that way yourself. I am looking through an objective lens and my only goal is that you feel you have benefited from the work we do together.
