Do you often feel “unworthy,” “not good enough” or like “there’s something wrong with me?” Are you stuck in self defeat? If this sounds familiar, I’m here to help. I support people who want to live bigger and brighter, but have struggled with self-esteem, sexual assault/abuse, PTSD, and body-image issues. By showing you how to bring compassion to these issues, and the overwhelm they cause, I can help you learn to love yourself and others for a more satisfying life.

Treatment Approach

  • Dance/Movement Therapy
  • EMDR
  • Internal Family Systems
  • Somatic
Approach Description: Using experiential frameworks that go beyond talk-therapy, I support clients learn how they do what they do, and therefore how to change it. Though new experiences of wholeness, clients begin to sunset their suffering. To accomplish this, I use somatic approaches, including body awareness and mindfulness, alongside parts-work (Internal Family Systems), which is method that moves clients towards wholeness.

Kim Gengler Practice Description
If experiences created our self defeat then experiences heal them. By engaging you in new, reparative experiences of yourselves, you can develop an embodied sense of worthiness and wellbeing. Using a combination of Internal Family Systems, EMDR, and somatic psychology approaches, I work with individuals (adults and late-stage adolescents) and couples to resolve the impact of shame and fear. These therapeutic frameworks are experiential in nature and support the awareness-building, processing, and integration of self-defeating spirals.
