“The CooperRiis philosophy and thoughtful design speak to the healing power of community, and I am excited to work in an environment that understands mental health from a holistic perspective. In my academic training as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I experienced that mental health treatment is most effective when viewed through a systemic lens. Real growth occurs when someone feels safe and supported.”
After an internship with Child and Family Outpatient Community Mental Health, Kimbrough began her career as a therapist working with the Children’s Intensive Wraparound Program. This experience was foundational in learning to take therapy “out of the office” and into the community. The mental health agency experience also included time serving as a program supervisor for foster youth and overseeing a therapeutic camp for children. Kimbrough’s career includes working in the equine facilitated therapy field, a modality close to her heart. In addition to her experience working with children and teenagers, she has enjoyed being an individual therapist for adults using virtual sessions to provide low-barrier access to mental health.
She earned her Master of Arts in Psychology at Antioch University in Seattle, WA, and her Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Appalachian State University, Boone, NC.
Kimbrough enjoys spending time outside, whether hiking in the mountains or through the daily labor required of living on a small farm in the beautiful horse country of the North Carolina Foothills.
