Relational Issues - Kim Saltzman

Relational Issues

Kim treats the following relational issues:


Couples/Marital Counseling

Couples counseling is one of Kim’s favorite types of therapy to provide. She believes that relationships require work and are bound to face challenges large and small. Simple, everyday stressors can strain an intimate relationship, and major sources of stress may threaten the stability of the relationship. As long as each partner is willing to address the issue at hand and participate in developing a solution, most relationship problems are manageable, but when challenges are left unaddressed, tension mounts, poor habits develop, and the health and longevity of the relationship are in jeopardy.

Some common relationship concerns that Kim works with include financial difficulties, barriers to communication, routine conflict, emotional distance, sexual intimacy issues, and lack of trust. She also provides pre-marital counseling for couples who are considering marriage or who are engaged.


Family Counseling

Kim finds it helpful, and at times imperative to work with families facing a variety of issues including, but not limited to,  a loved one facing an addiction (chemical or behavioral), eating disorder, mood disorder, poor emotional regulation, or dysfunctional relational patterns.

She uses the following techniques in assisting families to heal:

  • Educates family members about healthy family dynamics and the roles that families play.
  • Helps redirect focus from the member who has been identified as ill onto the family as a whole.
  • Identifies conflicts and anxieties and helps the family develop strategies to resolve them.
  • Strengthens all family members so they can work on their problems both individually and together.
  • Teaches new and more effective ways to handle conflicts and changes within the family. Sometimes the way family members handle problems makes them more likely to develop symptoms.

During therapy sessions, the family’s strengths are used to help them handle their problems, and all members take responsibility for problems.

Kim exemplifies someone who truly is in counseling because she has a genuine heart to see people healed and restored. Her empathy and compassion speaks volumes about her and makes her so easy to talk to and trust. Trust is something that has never come easily to me but Kim sets up an atmosphere that puts me at ease and gives me the space to talk with freedom. Her mastery and understanding of current therapy techniques has helped to change and restore my life! I owe so much of my recovery to Kim and she truly helped to save my life from the pit. I have learned from Kim that there is always hope for recovery and healing and it is okay to make mistakes and not be perfect. Kim never judges nor condemns and shows me grace and compassion even when I don’t deserve it. She is definitely a blessing from the Lord!!!!

Kim has an amazing way of helping you realize the truth that is already in you. She helped me to see the reality of my codependent relationship with an addict. I stayed in the relationship because I couldn't fathom living without him. Kim not only helped me to find the inner strength to get through that lost relationship, but I am now grateful for it! Kim has helped me discover the tools necessary to deal with things that life throws at me in a healthy way. I would not be where I am today without her help! Her easygoing and caring nature makes me feel comfortable sharing the things that I have kept to myself for years, and with her wisdom and insight I have learned to deal with these things that hidden, have been hurting me for so long.

My connection with Kim was immediate. I found someone that truly identified with the problem I was facing. I received immediate feedback during each of my sessions. How refreshing when you have had prior counselors prompt you to talk about yourself for an hour only to tell you “time is up, good work, and when can you come in next.” My only regret is the loss of time and money spent on two other counselors before I found Kim.

When I first sought treatment for my eating disorder and addiction to self-harm, I was terrified of being dismissed by a professional as a “fake who was not truly sick.” Kim did nothing but affirm my decision to get help before things escalated further though. From our first session onward, she has been a beacon of light: shinning God’s truth and hope into the overwhelming darkness of addiction. She’s encouraged me through rough patches; celebrated milestones with me; firmly held me accountable in the most loving of ways possible; and maintained a steadfast honesty with me, regardless of the truth being something I wanted to hear verses something I needed to hear. With strength from God and guidance from Kim, I’ve begun climbing my way out of the hole of my struggles.
