Kimberly Mahr, MSC-S, LPC, NCC, CCTP
Psychotherapist, Life Coach & Transformation Mentor
In my life prior to becoming a therapist I enjoyed several decades as an entrepreneur, business owner, motivational speaker, and trainer.
Always sensing there was a higher purpose for my knack for inspiring others, I went back to grad school where I completed a Master of Science in Counseling degree.
Me, as a Psychotherapist:
I am a Licensed Counselor in the state of Arizona and have advanced clinical training and experience in the areas of eating disorder recovery, pre-verbal (early life) trauma, trauma-based dissociation, complex trauma, recent incident trauma, navigating life transitions, and mood disorders. I use EMDR as one of many ways to help my clients find relief from all manner of challenges, and have advanced training in this modality as well.
In my clinical practice I welcome adults (ages 17+) from all backgrounds, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, gender identities, physical abilities, and relationship configurations. I recognize that there are cultural, religious, and family factors that may influence your decisions and how you live your life, and I honor that understanding in our work together. I am LGBTQIA aligned and provide a friendly, safe and accepting place for all people.
Me, as a Coach:
Not for the faint of heart, I am an ass-kicker and transformation and motivation powerhouse. I'm like your new BFF who sees you and sees through you, and is unafraid to help you peel back the layers of bad habits, stinking thinking, and break your cycle of self-defeating and self-sabotaging behaviors and patterns.
I’m also a real person:
I'm a 50ish mom to two badass daughters who challenge me and bring me immeasurable joy every day. I enjoy spending time in, on, or near the ocean, sailing and paddle-boarding, gourmet cooking (and eating), and am forever on the hunt for the perfect margarita. I am also a Usui Reiki/Master-Teacher and enjoy a regular practice of yoga and meditation. I love live music, dancing, and a good night out on the town just as much as I enjoy a quiet night at home with a good book, baking cookies, or watching Netflix.
