Kimberlee Daughtry, MA, LPC-S, RPT, EMDR
In 2012, I founded Breath of Hope Professional Counseling. As a fellow sojourner on this spiral path of life, it was as is my goal to create a safe and nurturing environment where people could have the sacred space to unpack bothersome issues that are interfering with their lives.
I am originally from Indiana, but moved to San Antonio, Texas in 1990, after graduating from Indiana University with a BS in Education. Six months prior to coming to Texas, I lived in Melbourne, Australia where I taught elementary school. Living in Australia made the transition to San Antonio easy, as the natural terrain is quite similar. While in San Antonio, I worked as an elementary school teacher. In 2001, I received my Masters Degree in Counseling from the University of Texas San Antonio. I completed my internship as an elementary school counselor in Northside Independent School District. After graduation I took a break for several years to be a full time mother for my three sons, Joshua, Caleb, and Micah. Eventually, I completed a second internship at Vitas Hospice and then applied for my License Professional Counselor Intern in Texas. During my internship I worked at Alamo Treatment Center/The Right Step and Alpha Home, a nonprofit treatment center for women struggling with chemical dependency. I also saw clients at University United Methodist Church where I worked on many diverse cases. Since then, I have worked with elders, adults, adolescents, family members, and couples in both in-patient and out-patient settings. I have worked as an instructor teaching addiction counselors at the Institute of Chemical Dependency Studies.
I practice a holistic approach to counseling that includes processing through past traumas, respecting the spirit, mind-body integration, and recognizing the power to change. I like to infuse nonverbal therapies, such as EMDR, sand tray therapy, Integral Breath Therapy and other expressive arts into treatment when appropriate to make the healing experience efficient and integrative neurologicially. I am a certified EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) therapist. To learn more about EMDR and its benefits, visit www.emdr.com or www.emdria.org I am also a Registered Play Therapist (RPT). I also enjoy working with couples. I have completed of Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 from the Gottman Institute for couple therapy training. I have also completed the Gottman Institute courses: Treating Couples with Addiction and Recovery and Treating Traumas and Affairs.
Some of the things that I enjoy doing are the following: spending time with my family and friends, traveling, writing, running, yoga, swimming, dancing, having meaningful conversations, and being of service to others as a therapist.
