KIM ASHER, LPC
Kim Asher, M.S.,L.P.C., is a licensed professional counselor treating adolescents and adults in individual and group therapies. She has been licensed since 1999 and has experience working with rape crisis, childhood abuse and trauma, as well as PTSD, anxiety and depression.
Specializing in trauma work, Kim uses an eclectic style of therapy. She has incorporated what she finds to be most helpful from years of training in many types of psychotherapy.
Kim is trained in Brainspotting, EMDR, and Hypnotherapy. These types of approaches are very useful in treating different kinds of traumas. The purpose of trauma-focused therapy is to integrate the traumatic event into your life, not subtract it. Both Brainspotting and EMDR use Bilateral stimulation, such as, music, tappers/ lights, or back and forth hand movements, as part of their technique. Brainspotting is an offspring of EMDR, and both are powerful, useful, and focused treatment methods that work by identifying, processing, (reprocessing) and releasing emotional/body pain and beliefs that are a result of the traumatic event (s).
Kim believes our inner experience is directly related to our external one. Psychotherapy is an excellent way to bring change to both for the better.
