Kimberly Chu, LCSW, DCSW

Psychotherapist, Psychoanalyst, Consultant

Kimberly Chu, LCSW, DCSW is a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst who has been in clinical practice with adults, children and adolescents for twenty years. She assists in addressing acute problems, as well as longer standing patterns that have come to interfere with the ability to live a more satisfying life, achieve personal goals and enjoy caring relationships.

Her work with adults focuses on helping the individual develop a deeper knowledge of oneself and sort through the many aspects of the difficulties. In this way a person can begin to alter the circumstances that prevent change. By openly exploring feelings, thoughts and behaviors access to new insights emerge and allow for change in ways that were previously unknown.

In her work with children and adolescents she collaborates with parents, guardians, schools and other professionals, as appropriate and as necessary, in order to comprehend the concerns and possible ways to approach a difficulty in the life of a developing young person. She has worked with children who have struggled with behavioral problems, inattention, anxiety, depression, medical illnesses, trauma and relationships, to name a few. She specializes in work with children and adults who have been adopted, as well as support of their families. Additionally, she specializes in assisting adults and children whose struggles relate to issues of ethnicity, culture and identity. She offers services in both English and Spanish.

Often, the individuals who pursue help are people who are aware of behaviors, feelings and attitudes that have interfered with making better choices, but who have  been unable to make the changes on their own. In her work with individuals, couples and families she collaborates with those involved to arrive at an optimal treatment to address the difficulties presented. As the work progresses and the problems are understood differently, she supports change as it naturally occurs. Her approach is collaborative, thoughtful, and respectful of the individuals and the difficulties that have led them to seek help.
