About Kim Atwood, LPC, CST

I am a holistic psychotherapist with nearly 18 years experience. I tend to think outside the box and use a gentle engaged, interactive, collaborative, and creative approach.

I work with people to better understand their relationships. Not only in relationship with partners and family members, but also their relationship to their own body, thoughts, stress, and Self. I aim to help you feel more confident and comfortable in your own skin. Through integrating the mind and body, I help you feel more authentic, engaged in and content with life, fully embodied in daily activities, sexually satisfied and empowered.

In addition to being a psychotherapist, I am also a certified sex therapist. Sex therapy sessions are similar to those conducted with other counselors – sex therapy is talk therapy. As a sex therapist, I bring extensive training beyond the basic psychotherapy to address the highly personal psychological, physical and emotional issues around sexual concerns. My specialized training makes it possible to view things holistically and evaluate a multitude of concerns, along with medical, emotional, cultural, and lifestyle factors to guide you to better sexual health and satisfaction.
