Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I work primarily with adolescents and adults regarding issues related to relationships and transitions. I have experience working with grief and loss, depression, parenting, adoption and foster care, family dynamics, and adjustment issues specific to teens and young adults. I believe in the power of making choices that lead to life affirming outcomes and in the ability of individuals to accomplish their goals. I also believe that individuals sometimes require the assistance of counseling in order to help them begin making changes to achieve personal growth and well-being. I employ a systemic approach, which is strength based and client centered. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish and International Studies and a Master’s Degree in Counseling from George Fox University in Portland, Oregon. Altogether, I have more than 16 years of counseling experience in a variety of settings and I look forward to working with you as we embark on this journey together.
I obtained my Masters in Psychology with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy from Phillips Graduate Institute and my Bachelors in Psychology from Ithaca College. I believe asking for help is the first step towards leading a happier, more fulfilled life. I strive to help individuals find the tools they need to make positive transformations. I provide a safe comfortable environment where individuals can share their thoughts and feelings. I use an eclectic, strengths based approach to therapy creating a supportive and collaborative environment in order to promote personal growth.
I have experience treating a variety of issues such as depression, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, behavioral issues, substance abuse, ADHD, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, parenting issues, and relationship problems. I work with children, adolescents, families, and adults and provide individual, family, and group therapy. When working with children I utilize play therapy techniques and strongly encourage family involvement.
Prior to joining Miracles Counseling Center I provided Individual, Family, and Group Therapy at Beach Cities Psychological Services in Hermosa Beach California. Prior to my work in Private Practice I worked for a county funded agency, San Fernando Valley Community Mental Health Center where I specialized in early intervention, as well as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Before my work as a Mental Health Clinician I provided floor time therapy to children with special needs.
I’m also the mother of two children(8 and 5) and as a parent I understand the complexities and challenges of daily life. I also believe our parenting choices affect our children and shape who they will become as adults.

I am a provisionally licensed clinical social worker. I received my Masters in Social Work at UNC Wilmington. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, families and young adults. Areas I specialize in include: anxiety, depression, self-esteem and life transitions. I also have extensive experience dealing with the psychosocial concerns that accompany medical trauma and chronic illness. I am well aware of the issues that children and young adults face when going through the scary, uncertain realities of illness and am enjoy walking alongside them and their families as they navigate the anxiety, grief and burden of the illness.
I believe that mental health and wellness is essential for every person and everyone can find value in working through issues in their life to become the best versions of themselves. I believe that wellness and health are multidimensional and I like to address all dimensions when working with a client. I don’t hold onto one specific method or approach. I believe in meeting YOU where YOU are. I consider therapy to be a collaborative approach. You have the answers and solutions within yourself and my job is to help discover those answers deep within you. I provide empathy and compassion and listen fully with a nonjudgmental heart.

Greetings! In my work, my overall hope is to assist others to attain an inner peace and security in who they are as a person in all environments. In doing this, I believe each person is fully capable of making productive and responsible changes in their lives when they choose to do so. I hope that time for you is now. I have diverse experiences in working with children, adults, and families in both North Carolina and Florida. With a history of treating issues of ADHD, anxiety, mood disorders, abuse, trauma, and life transitions, I have a broad knowledge base in serving others. Because of my recognition that no two clients are alike, I strive to engage each individual in a manner that is unique to the client’s needs and strengths, thus creating a customized and comprehensive approach to each individual.
Greetings! My name is Kimberly Whalen. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Argosy University and Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pfeiffer University of Graduate Studies. I provide therapy sessions for individuals, couples, and family systems. I work with diverse populations living with the following: Bipolar, clinical depression, anxiety, ADHD, addiction, P.T.S.D., grief, infidelity, eating disorders, parent-child and marital distress, life transitions, and day-to-day stressors.
My therapy approach is taken from an attachment perspective. I believe humans are wired to feel connected and benefit from healthy relationships. Without this connectedness, we may experience isolation or loneliness. I provide a safe, accepting space for my clients and utilize positive Existential and ACT Therapy Models supporting self-awareness, meaningful relationships, and values of life. Together, we will identify personal strengths creating affirmations of self-worth. We can explore intergenerational behavioral patterns and self-defense mechanisms that may influence current relationships. Most importantly, we will celebrate the freedom of empowerment, healing, and connectedness, which lead to personal growth. It would be a privilege to learn, collaborate, and grow with you. Join me at Miracles Counseling Centers, Inc. (704) 664-1009, where we can walk this path of personal growth together.
“Human existence begins and ends with a desire for connectedness. Connectedness forms identity, preserves aspiration, constructs meaning, and models generativity.” ~Kimberly Whalen
