Kimberly Herring, LMHC

Kimberly earned her undergraduate degree in Social Work from the University of West Florida before attaining a Master’s degree in Counseling and Psychology from Troy University.

I am an LMHC with over 12 years’ experience of helping all kinds of people, with all kinds of issues.  Therefore, my treatment approach reflects that.  I use an eclectic variety of theories to help people overcome life’s challenges.  My goal is to offer a supportive and safe space to address the client’s needs.  I start by meeting the client where they are and continue by working collaboratively with them to achieve their goals.  I strive to empower them, by building on the strengths they already have and providing the skills and tools they may be missing.  I enjoy helping people be their whole and authentic self.

Kimberly currently accepts self-pay and out-of-network benefits.

Casey Becker, LMHC

Casey is moving to telehealth! You can find her at www.azureskiescounselingandcoaching.com or email her directly at [email protected]

The last year has wrought enormous changes, which has required an extraordinary amount of cognitive, emotional, and practical adaptability. Accordingly, I have realized that telehealth offers an unanticipated amount of flexibility for both my clients and me. Simultaneously, it allowed me to be more of a therapist, and more of a mom. With this in mind, I am going out on my own and starting a new telehealth practice, Azure Skies Counseling and Coaching. It is scary to take such risks, but how can I be an authentic therapist if I do not take the positive risks I am always encouraging my clients to take? If you are interested in working with me, please contact me at [email protected] or use the form on the website  www.azureskiescounselingandcoaching.com
