Kimberly Tran, PhD, HSP-P Licensed Psychologist

I am a licensed psychologist with experience working with a diversity of adults from a multicultural and affirmative perspective. I am committed to helping adult individuals with depression, anxiety, trauma survivor (PTSD, MST, Wounded Warrior, emotional, sexual, physical abuse), addiction and recovery, self esteem, difficult childhood, stress, and the challenges of everyday life.

I also enjoy working with couples (married, partnered and/or cohabiting) to address communication struggles, financial pressures, parenting difficulties and any challenges that can strain the bonds of a strong and healthy relationship.​ (I am Level 1 trained and certified in the Gottman Method.)

I ​ am pleased to ​have worked extensively with service members, veterans and their families (SMVF) and understand the specific and unique aspects of military life.

I provide a supportive, objective, non-judgmental safe environment for individuals to explore, understand, and heal. By accepting how "perfectly imperfect" each of us are, we can move towards a life of balance and wellness. I look forward to working with you!

I have immediate openings for children, adolescents, adults, couples, or families. I view therapy as an educational process that is intended to help you learn strategies and techniques to better manage your stress, relationships, and health. You are the expert on you, but together we can determine what you can do to improve your well-being.

Therapist Teshia Utley-McKoy, MS, LPC

Teshia Utley-McKoy, MS, LPC

I believe that therapy is a journey that requires work and one that is embarked on so that clients will become their own catalyst for change, experience growth, and become empowered. For many, the most difficult part of the journey is beginning it.

With over 15 years’ experience working with adolescents, teenagers, adults, and families to establish some normalcy in their lives, I can provide you with a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment where you can begin your journey towards wholeness, healing, and recovery.

I also have a real passion to serve the military population and understand the struggles and obstacles they face that are vastly different from civilians. I also understand how important it is to have a supportive shoulder and listening ear during challenging times; let me be that for you!

I believe it is very important to find a therapist that is a good fit and will effectively meet your needs. My goal is to assist you with developing an enhanced sense of self and for you to reach your maximum potential. If you are ready to make the first steps to begin your journey, call now to make an appointment!

I am looking forward to embarking on this journey with you! Call today!
