Hello. I'm Dr. Kimberly Wilson.
I am a licensed naturopathic physician. I am a nationally certified clinical mental health counselor, a mind-body therapist, addictions counselor, a professional midwife, a medical myotherapist, and hold certifications in integrative medicine, mental health, health coaching, life coaching, sports nutrition, and personal training. I am passionate about helping others overcoming their obstacles and maximize their fullest potential. I am the proud mother of two beautiful children, and I am forever a work in progress.
Right now you are wondering how I can help. I can listen. I can understand. Chances are, I have lived some of the similar experiences as you. I have been in the quicksand of life-physically, mentally, and emotionally. Nothing you say is going to shock me or make me think less of you. Together, we will come up with the answers you seek.
My philosophy of medicine and therapy is both collective and holistic. I view therapy as a collaboration between my clients and myself. In addition to resolving the client’s specific concerns, I hope to empower my patients or clients with the ability to enrich their overall quality of life beyond problem solving or fixing health issues. I believe successful healthcare and therapy embodies deep and abiding respect for the individual’s uniqueness, coupled with profound emotional and psychological presence, and the mastery of a wide range of therapeutic skills on the part of the doctor and therapist. I also believe in a holistic approach to medicine and therapy. (You are a single being, so yes, it is all related. ) I believe it is essential to consider the mind, body, and spirit, all of which construct the path we choose in our daily walk through life.
My theoretical framework is an integrative blend. Some approaches work well for some people, while other people respond better to a different method. I do not have a “one size fits all” philosophy. (If that worked, you would have already read 'that' book and would not be looking for answers.) Having said that, it is probably most accurate to say my therapeutic approach that aligns with what I do is the wellness model. It is a philosophy that arose out of a desire to view health as a state of positive well-being rather than an absence of illness, akin to naturopathy. With that, I view my patients and clients through the lens of a physician. Depending on the presenting concerns, I pull from cognitive, dialectical, and behavioral therapies, incorporate biofeedback and neurofeedback, or integrate lifestyle and nutritional psychiatry, just to name a few. My graduate training was in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic therapy, and I consider how the complex interactions of relationships and traumas, past and present, influence our current physical, psychological, and emotional health. My doctorate training was in medicine as well as the integrative modalities of traditional Eastern medicine, acupuncture, botanicals, physical manipulation, medical myotherapy, and nutrition.
