Kimberly-TraskKIMBERLY TRASK, MS, CSC, NCC, LPC

Prior to entering the field of counseling, Kimberly worked in public secondary education for eighteen years, both in the classroom and as a school counselor. During those years, Kimberly began to recognize the increasing prevalence of depression and anxiety among teens, and having experienced undiagnosed and untreated depression during her own teen and young adult years, began to recognize God’s leading to provide the counseling services many adolescents need but all too often are unable to receive. A vision for a non-profit organization and network of counselors providing mental health services to adolescents and their families regardless of insurance or income began to become more clearly defined. Leaving education, Kimberly worked as the adolescent therapist for Springwood Hospital’s Partial Hospitalization Program and for Texas Psychiatry Associates, P.A., in Flower Mound. Led to focus fulltime on The Refuge Counseling Resources, an adolescent counseling ministry, Kimberly’s search for a location to see her clients led her to The Counseling Center at NorthWood Church and a developing partnership to extend church counselor plant ministries into churches.
