My name is Kimberly Pacheco, LMHC. For the past 10 years, I have been practicing in the Northdale area of Tampa Bay specializing in Grief, Loss and Trauma. I am versed in working with children, teens and adults.
I love walking beside individuals in their time if need. To be able to be part of their healing, watching their resiliency grow and to see the strength of the human spirit! It is an honor to be a very small helper in their story of life!
My granddaughter and I have worked with Kimberly Pacheco over the last 3 years at creative change counseling. We both were broken and at a very vulnerable time in our lives. From the very beginning we were welcomed with such a level of professionalism ,compassion and understanding.The wealth of information tools and encouragement we received during counseling has been detrimental for our healing process .As we continue working with Ms Pacheco we have found peace in our healing.
