Kimber Vaughan (she/her)

Clinical Intern, Capella University

Hello! My name is Kimber (she/her), and I am a Clinical Student Intern here at Three Oaks.  I am in the final year of completing my Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy at Capella University.  I  have a Liberal Studies degree from California State University, Chico and a Masters of Education from National University. I am excited for the opportunity to combine my experience in education with my current training in therapy.

As an elementary school teacher for ten years, I had the opportunity to work with children and their families and assist them as they navigated difficulties inside and outside of the classroom. I like to see clients with concerns about anxiety, life transitions, family, and kids/teens struggling with peer relationships or difficulty at school. I work with ages 6 to 60.   In the room I like to use relational based theories, that focus on the whole you. My approach to therapy is one that looks at things through a systemic lens. Our life doesn’t happen in a vacuum and our relationships with the people in our lives are impactful. I will help you explore how these relationships can contribute to what is currently happening in your life. It is my goal for you to use the strengths that you already possess and build on those.  I also like to incorporate the use of the mind body connection in session. You are the owner of your story and my goal is to meet you where you are so that you get what you need from our time together.

I believe that we can each benefit from having someone to talk to and truly listen to us no matter what stage of life you might be in.  You don’t have to wait until there is a bump in the road to seek therapy. It is just as important to share our good times as our struggles and I am here for all of it.  I will listen, be curious, and provide you a safe place to talk and to be seen and heard. Coming to therapy is brave and takes strength and courage.  I would be honored to sit with you as we explore ways to help you feel your best.

When I am not helping my clients, you can find me in my kitchen, outside on a walk listening to a podcast, traveling, or hanging out with my family.  I am passionate about living a healthy life style and sharing that with my friends and family.
