Kim Freeman is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC-MHSP). She has been providing psychotherapy services to clients since 2006. She holds a Master of Science in Counseling from Austin Peay State University.
Currently, Kim primarily treats adults. Her treatment interests include Depressive and Anxiety Disorders, especially those caused by trauma, such as Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and traumatic grief. Kim also provides counseling for Bipolar Disorder, chronic pain, substance-related issues, and codependency.
Kim’s treatment methods are eclectic and includes EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Solution-Focused Brief therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Rational Emotive Behavior therapy.
Kim’s treatment philosophy is that each client is capable of recovery and should be involved in the decision-making process for their treatment. Clients should be educated about their diagnoses and recommended treatments in order to make informed decisions about their care. Client and therapist should be a collaborative team that focuses on resolving the client’s presenting issues. Every session is individualized to meet the needs of each client from a compassionate and empowering perspective.
Kim is an approved supervisor for counselors seeking their state licensure and enjoys assisting in the growth of the local counseling community.
Kim is an avid hockey fan (Go PREDS!). She enjoys karaoke as well as arts and crafts (knitting, quilting, painting, crochet, making jewelry, costume design and construction). Kim is a big fan of Star Wars and Dr. Who. Prior to her career as a counselor (ages 2-23), she practiced many styles of dance including Irish, ballet, jazz, and tap and has performed on television, at the Ryman, at the Grand Ole Opry, and at many local cultural festivals.
