Kimberly Parsons
I came to the field of psychotherapy after an engaging twenty-year career in the publishing industry.

Working as a photographer and picture producer, my work was influenced by the deeper complexity of the human experience. As my job expanded to managing and motivating creative teams, my interest in what makes relationships work was galvanized.

As a psychotherapist, I find my desire to understand the inner world of those with whom I work immensely rewarding. I bring an aliveness to this work through my deep connection with horses, my passion as an amateur jazz pianist and my avocation as a sailor and sailing instructor.

I bring my enduring belief in the curative potential of relationships from my experience as a big sister in the BS/BB program for 20 years and continue to volunteer as a mentor in capacities related to kids.

My diversity of interests combined with an endless curiosity, allows me to help my clients with aspects of their difficulties that are not always readily accessible, and thereby gain a deeper and more meaningful connection with themselves and others.
