Erica Kimball was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. Through her mother’s diagnosis of breast cancer at age seven and her own performance based acceptance of herself, Erica felt ‘stuck’ at a young age. This manifested itself through depression, anxiety, and low self esteem. Thankfully her parents reached out to a counselor for help. Through this experience, Erica began on a road to hope and healing that ultimately led her to want to assist others through their own personal journeys of life change.
Erica graduated from the University of Arkansas with a degree in psychology and moved to Dallas where she received her Masters in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary in 2003. Since starting counseling in the Dallas area, Erica has worked in both clinical and hospital settings. She recently worked with young women, men, and their families in the midst of crisis pregnancies at Buckner Children and Family Services. Erica’s work with children in foster care and adoptive placements was crucial in facilitating them through their journeys of trauma, grief and loss, and adjustment related issues. She enjoys working with children, teenagers, adults and the entire family system to promote an atmosphere where relationships bring healing and hope for the future.
Erica utilizes play therapy to help children communicate in the language that they know best. Through play, children will work through their feelings and express their needs. Erica hopes to provide an environment that encourages children to process emotions they may not yet know how to verbally express to others. In her free time, Erica enjoys volunteering with the children’s ministry at her church. For fun, Erica enjoys running, reading, traveling and spending time with her husband, David.
