A Note from Dr. Laura Wallace:

Welcome to Twin Lakes Counseling!
I'm so glad you are here.

I have been practicing marriage and family therapy for almost a decade and am truly passionate about the work I do. I have gathered a team of the best therapists around, and if you'll let us, we would love to explore how to use our expertise and your experience to make lasting and powerful change.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing where our work together takes us!

Kimberly Gerst, LICSWA

Pronouns: She/Her

Kimberly became a mental health professional out of her deep desire to meet and work with those who want to help themselves. Throughout her extensive travels and diverse life experiences, her heart's desire to help and support others in their decision to change their lives for the better only grew. In response, Kimberly achieved a Bachelor of Arts from Western Washington University, a Master's of Social Work from Marywood University, a certification as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and took master's courses in Couple & Family Therapy from Antioch University.

Out of the great respect she has for those who voluntarily decide to work toward a better future and wellbeing for themselves, Kimberly continuously seeks out more knowledge and experiences so that she can best support her clients. In addition to her schooling and her certification as a Health Coach, Kimberly also became a hypnotherapist, a Gottman Trained Leader, a "Calling In the One" coach, and a certified Social Emotional Mindfulness-based Leader. Her determination to expand her knowledge and experience allows her to provide exceptional tailored care to each of her clients. 

Kimberly considers it an honor to come alongside individuals and couples from all walks of life and help them process their life experiences, heal from wounds, and work for a life they desire most for themselves. Whether struggling with life transitions, grief, divorce, self-esteem, family dysfunction, or depression and anxiety, Kimberly wants to help guide you through to great understanding and self-discovery. With Kimberly you will find a safe place to be your authentic self and a skilled, compassionate guide throughout your therapeutic journey. 

When she is not engaged with her valued clients, as a single parent Kimberly loves and greatly values spending time with her three children. She also loves spending time outdoors whether that is hiking, camping, or skiing as she finds great benefit from getting off the grid as often as possible.
