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. Erica is a Registered Play Therapist (RPT) who sees the value in allowing kids to communicate through play. 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 is involved in her local church, where she volunteers with the Children and Family Ministries Department. For fun, Erica enjoys walking outside, reading, traveling and spending time with her husband, David, and their three young children.
