Licensed Therapist, LPC


My approach to treating OCD is very collaborative. I'll be a cheerleader for you throughout the entire process. I believe you're the expert on your own life experience. Outside of work, I prioritize health and fitness. I own a spin bike. I try to challenge myself in different ways. I've recently gone skydiving and zip-lining—they were cool experiences, but I don't know if I'll ever do them again!

Doing therapy for OCD is one of the bravest things you can do. Trust yourself as you start this journey, and trust the process you're going through. Sticking with it and doing the work will allow you to achieve amazing outcomes.

Get to know Kimberly Monkman

I find it incredibly rewarding to support and guide others while watching them achieve their goals. I find this field to be challenging and rewarding, and it’s certainly never boring.

I always had a natural drive to work with people diagnosed with anxiety. As a therapist, I began to see more and more people with OCD, and I noticed many were not being properly treated for it. That's when I decided I wanted to specialize in OCD.

It's important to help people treat all aspects of their mental health. I've worked with people diagnosed with social anxiety, generalized anxiety, major depressive disorder, body-focused repetitive behaviors, and other mood-related disorders. These conditions impact quality of life in so many ways—from how you sleep and eat to how you work or access education. It's also common for OCD to co-occur with these conditions.

ERP is one of the bravest things you can do. The work is extremely important, from actively engaging in exposures during sessions to practicing them independently. Members who regularly practice their assignments see the best results. Trust yourself, and trust the process you're going through. Sometimes it gets worse before it gets better, but sticking with it and doing the work will allow you to achieve the best outcomes.

I can definitely understand the fear that comes along with sharing intrusive thoughts. There can be a lot of guilt and shame that arises. But I'm here to help you experience your thoughts differently. I've heard anything and everything from the people I’ve worked with, and there is no judgment here. This is a space where you can express what you’re experiencing freely and openly.

I have worked with Kim for about a month and she is fantastic. She has guided me well and my OCD symptoms have reduced significantly since the start. She is great at leading you and encouraging you while not giving you the affirmation your OCD wants. 10/10

I can’t say enough great things about my therapist. I never thought anyone would be able to help me and she’s been so patient and helpful and never judgmental. I’m so grateful. I have had ocd since I was 6 years old, I accepted it as who I was. I feel more free than I have felt in my entire life.

Here are some tips on how to practice self-compassion! -Talk to yourself like you would talk to a loved one who is also struggling -Use the same tone with yourself that you would use with a loved one -Make sure you are doing things that are good for you in the long term (not just the short term) -Utilize self-compassion statements that are not necessarily reassurance in nature. For example, "I am strong" or "I am doing the best I can". *Be patient and practice this skill even when it doesn't feel authentic* Self-compassion is difficult but it can make all the difference in recovery.
