About Kimberly McGrady, LCSW

Kimberly believes that positive change starts on the individual level. In her practice and life, she has seen how individual thought drives how that person feels and behaves. Likewise, she’s seen how every change that happens within a community starts with individuals. Ms. McGrady became a psychotherapist so that she could help people recognize and effectively manage their maladaptive or unhealthy thinking in order to make necessary positive changes. She works with her patients to help them let go of thoughts that keep them stuck, hurt, depressed, anxious, and living in the past. In this way, she helps people become their best selves. She knows that we are all connected and that when she helps one person, the lives of that person’s kids, spouse, partner, parents, friends, and community also improve. With patients, Kimberly draws from/ Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and several other therapeutic modalities to teach useful, rational, productive, compassionate, and self-supporting tools. She cultivates the point of view that our minds reflect our reality and are powerful tools for creating change, invoking happiness, and managing maladaptive thinking. By exercising the mind in this way, people foster new belief systems that/ propel them into deeper life satisfaction. Ms. McGrady is motivated by the Henry Ford quote, “If you think you can do a thing or you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” She sees all the time how our minds believe what we tell them and, given that, thinks we might as well start telling our minds something helpful.

Kimberly McGrady has always gone out of her way to show me that I can trust her as my therapist. I m thankful that she has always proved to listen to me and remembered specific events that I have mentioned to her. I have seen numerous therapists during my life. Kimberly McGrady is by far the most helpful therapist I have ever spent my time with. She always knows what to say to make me feel better in the moment. Most of all though, she provides me with the tools I can use to successfully navigate through difficult situations I may find myself in outside of our meetings.

While struggling through a particularly difficult time in my life, she has made me feel confident in my feelings and overall self. She always remembers specifics from previous appointments and checks in with me. Kimberly McGrady is the most incredible therapist. It s obvious that she has a love for helping others, and after just a few months as her patient, she has earned my complete trust. I am so extremely grateful to have her as my therapist.

I was a bit wary of virtually meeting, but I could feel her focus and empathy. And she had follow-up plans that were always doable between visits.
