Kyle Grimm

Counselor, LMHC

Now accepting new patients! I have worked for over 15 years in a variety of settings with diverse populations. I utilize a rational-emotive behavioral (REBT) foundation complimented by other techniques that provide a compassionate, constructive, and genuine approach. I enjoy working with kids and adolescents who are struggling from emotional and behavioral issues. Educating parents/caregivers provides a greater understanding of how this therapeutic process looks. If you are an adult struggling with life or everyday challenges that impact your mood, thoughts, or relationships, then together we will gain insight to your understanding of these challenges by bringing knowledge and awareness into how they are accepted and dealt with.
