About Kimberly Atwood Counseling
In today's hectic world, we often forget our true nature and end up feeling stuck, tired, lonely, anxious, and discontent. At times we all need extra support overcoming difficulties.
I am a holistic psychotherapist with 10 years experience working with individuals and couples.
I work with people to better understand their relationships, not only with partners and family members, but also relationship to food/eating, one's body, and oneself. I aim to help people feel more confident and comfortable in their own skin, engaged in and content with life, fully embodied in daily activities, sexually satisfied and empowered.
What differentiates us
I tend to think outside the box and use a gentle engaged, interactive, collaborative, and creative approach.
My professional and personal journey have led me to blend Western Psychology and Eastern Philosophy, neuroscience, mindfulness, compassion, breath and bodywork, mind-body techniques, and the creative healing arts when appropriate.
How we were trained
I received my graduate degree from New York University, and have additional post-graduate psychotherapy training from The William Alanson White Institute, New York, NY. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of Pennsylvania, Licensed Creative Arts Therapist (LCAT) in New York State, and hold a national board certification in Music Therapy (MT-BC).
My training and employment history include The Council for Relationships, Drexel University, West Chester University, Mount Sinai Medical Center, Bellevue Medical Center, Hackensack University Medical Center, Montefiore Medical Center, The Juilliard School, The Renfrew Center, The Creative Therapies Institute, and Performance Wellness, Inc.
I am currently affiliated with the American Association of Sexuality Educators Counselors and Therapists (AASECT), National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), American Counseling Association (ACA), Psychology Today, New York Academy of Sciences, and Certification Board of Music Therapists.
Why we love what we do
I am passionate about working with creative, open-minded people struggling with eating disorders/disordered eating, anxiety, depression, intimacy and relationship issues.
I am an active, engaged, present participant on the journey with you. I use mindfulness, body-oriented, somatic, and creative approaches, as appropriate. I specialize in the treatment of Eating Disorders, Sexual Intimacy and Relationship issues.
