I am dedicated to healing and preventing trauma, primarily through education, my books, my healing work with clients, workshops and providing valuable information on healing from trauma to survivors as well as mental health professionals and the community-at-large.
I educate clinical professionals, as well as other professionals who interact with survivors such as the police, court and school systems. By way of presentations to these audiences, television shows, a website, internet social media, pamphlets, newsletters and workshops, I facilitate the development of a trauma-informed community. As Helga Luest of Witness Justice states, “trauma-informed care isn’t about a ‘hand up,’ but rather working collaboratively and empowering the survivor in an environment where the provider and survivor have equal voice and choice.”
Overview of Kim Kubal
I am the Executive Director of Your Strength to Heal, a nonprofit organization in San Mateo County for those who are healing from trauma and abuse. Our website (www.strengthtoheal.org) provides education, resources and healing tools not only for the survivor, but for the caregiver and the clinicians who work with these survivors. Our long-term goal is to set up a holistic healing center for women in a safe and loving environment where they can heal from their trauma at their own pace.
I am now pursuing a PhD in East West Psychology at CIIS in San Francisco, I have a M.S. in Clinicial Psychology and therapist. I am also a spiritual counsellor, shamanic healer and certifified hypnotherapist in the spiritual counseling practice of depth hypnosis. Depth Hypnosis takes into account that each individual’s path to healing and self-understanding is unique, and it offers tools to help a person navigate the complexities of his/her own path. I also give numerous workshops, consultations on many aspects of recovery and healing.
Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D., https://www.sacredstream.org/ developed this highly effective therapeutic model to help people work through issues quickly and gain long-lasting results. By synthesizing key principles of shamanism, Buddhism, hypnotherapy, and transpersonal psychology, Depth Hypnosis brings the ancient healing wisdom of many cultures to the unique imbalances of contemporary Western society. I also give online counseling and have extensive experience in grief and loss, addiction, extreme abuse, sexual and ritual abuse healing.
I integrate these modalities to provide an innovative therapy, and a rapid path of transformation. I work with trauma and extreme abuse, drugs and alcohol recovery, grief and loss, mental illness and have healed personally in these areas over many years.
I have worked for many years in the mental health field:
- As an Executive Director of Your Strength to Heal, a non-profit organization for survivors, those who help survivors, namely caregivers and clinicians (10 years)
- Conducting workshops and working with survivors of all types of trauma and abuse (10 years)
- Teaching at a clean and sober 6-month residential program for 8 years
- Working with many different types of healing modalities
I have been in 12 step recovery for 30 years and bring my years of healing from extreme abuse as well as spiritual, physical, emotional abuse to help others. I have compassion and empathy to heal the client holistically – body, mind, soul and spirit.
