About

Hello.  I’m Kimberly Wilson.

I started Virtual Health & Wellness because I want to help you get the care you deserve and scratch one more thing off your to-do list. I am passionate about helping others overcoming their obstacles and maximize their health and well-being.

Me, too.

Right now you are wondering how I can help. I can listen. I can understand. Like you, I wear many hats in my personal and professional life. Chances are, I have lived some of the similar experiences as you. I have been in the quicksand of life–physically, mentally, and emotionally. Nothing you say is going to shock me or make me think less of you. Together, we will come up with the answers you seek.

Philosophy

My philosophy of health is both collective and holistic. I view therapy as a collaboration between my clients and myself. In addition to resolving the client’s specific concerns, I hope to empower my clients with the ability to enrich their overall quality of life beyond problem solving or fixing health issues. I believe successful healthcare and coaching embodies deep and abiding respect for the individual’s uniqueness, coupled with profound emotional and psychological presence, and the mastery of a wide range of therapeutic skills on the part of the provider. I also believe in a client-centered, holistic approach to my practice.  I believe it is essential to consider the mind, body, and spirit, all of which construct the path we choose in our daily walk through life.

Theory

My theoretical framework is an integrative blend. Some approaches work well for some people, while other people respond better to a different method. I do not have a “one size fits all” philosophy. (If that worked, you would have already read ‘that’ book and would not be looking for answers.) Having said that, it is probably most accurate to say my therapeutic approach that aligns with what I do is the wellness model. It is a philosophy that arose out of a desire to view health as a state of positive well-being rather than an absence of illness, akin to naturopathy.

Depending on the presenting concerns, I pull from cognitive, dialectical, and behavioral therapies, incorporate biofeedback and neurofeedback, or integrate lifestyle and nutritional psychiatry, just to name a few. My graduate training was in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic therapy, and I consider how the complex interactions of relationships and traumas, past and present, influence our current physical, psychological, and emotional health. My doctorate training was in medicine as well as the integrative modalities of traditional Eastern medicine, acupuncture, botanicals, physical manipulation, medical myotherapy, and nutrition.
