I am offering telehealth (remote) services only at this time. I have extensive training and continuing education credits in telehealth, and have been using it successfully in my practice for several years. It is a privilege to use this medium to continue to support my clients and community. I am also credentialed through PsyPact, allowing me to provide continuous care for my clients traveling in or moving to/living in any PsyPact states. Please contact me to schedule your appointment and learn more about telehealth! Please note: given that I am practicing 100% telehealth at this time, I am not accepting new child therapy nor evaluation referrals.
I’m Kim Dwyer
I excell at helping people recognize and bring mindful curiosity to their internal and external experiences, so that they can identify their true selve’s values and goals, understand thoughts and emotions in a different way, and learn strategies to promote overall wellness, increase positive relationships and connections, and decrease distress.
Do you feel like you are getting by, but not thriving? Does anxiety, stress, or low mood weigh you down? Dr. Dwyer provides individual therapy services online and in-office (note: we currently telehealth only). We begin with a thorough assessment of difficulties, then craft a treatment plan centering on your goals for change. Using techniques from cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral, and acceptance and commitment therapies, we will work together to personalize your treatment and help you align with the life of your dreams. Please note: I am providing only telehealth services at this time and not taking on new child/younger teen clients.
Is time one of your most valuable resources? Then distance therapy services may be perfect for you! Using a secure video link, we will work together for therapy just like we would in the office. But you won’t have to factor in driving and parking time, so your time out of the office or away from kids will be greatly reduced. All you need is an internet connected computer with microphone and webcam (most laptops come with these standard), and a private space at work or home for your appointment time. Distance services are also great for people living in a rural area. Click the button below and watch my video about distance therapy!
Dr. Dwyer provides comprehensive psycho-educational evaluations for children, teens, and young adults in need of recommendations for educational services. She is highly skilled at assessing cognitive, academic, executive functioning, and neuro-developmental abilities. Dr. Dwyer evaluates students for dyslexia and other specific learning disabilities, ad/hd, ASD, and other social-emotional difficulties that can impact educational functioning. Please note: I am not taking on new evaluation clients at this time.

Do you struggle with poor sleep quality? If you are among those who find it difficult to fall asleep or wake up too early, then you might be looking for ways to improve your sleep. Fortunately, there are simple tips that can help you get the sleep you need. Experts suggest that we make use of positive sleep hygiene to improve our sleep and combat insomnia. This includes keeping a consistent sleep schedule, limiting exposure to light and sound, keeping the bedroom for sleep and sex only, and avoiding daytime napping. Additionally, it’s essential to limit alcohol and drug use, as well as caffeine consumption. On average, adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night, and naps can interfere with sleep at night. Furthermore, sleep is divided into two major phases, NREM and REM, both of which are important for rest, repair, and processing emotions and memory. If you are feeling excessively tired during the day, it could be a sign of insufficient sleep quantity or quality, which can have a clear impact on your ability to function. So, start practicing positive sleep hygiene, and you’ll be able to get the sleep you need for a better, healthier life.
