Kimberly’s expertise is broad and deep, with several specialty certifications under her belt. She’s trained in the ConTiGO Approach, Animal Assisted Therapy (Levels 1 and 2), CPR/First Aid, and is a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner. She also holds certifications in Primitive Reflex Testing, Nerve Point, Therapeutic Listening Protocol, and Handwriting Without Tears.
