"Helping professional women, creative entrepreneurs and couples achieve health and wellness."

Dr. Kim Grocher - Fort Lauderdale Black Therapist.jpg

You’re the woman that everyone around you looks up to and admires. On paper, it looks like you’re at the top of your game. You’ve got the degrees, the title, maybe even the home that you’ve always dreamed of among some other proverbial boxes you’ve been able to check off, but inside you’re spiraling and struggling. Maybe it’s anxiety, stress, grief, past traumas or recent losses (or all of these) that have you feeling off.  Whatever it is, it’s starting to affect your relationships and probably your physical health. Something has to change now….


Maybe you’re that couple that’s trying to create the culture of your relationship, but it’s so challenging because you’re coming from different backgrounds and cultures. Or maybe you’re trying to figure out how to adjust to a new stage in life. You’re both slammed with all of life’s obligations and trying to achieve your individual goals, but somedays it feels like your partner is your nemesis instead of your biggest supporter. Where do you even begin to get back on track? How do you get past the anger and resentments that have been building?

It can be difficult to admit you need help to sort it all out and figure out how to heal and move forward. It can be even harder to find a professional who gets you and you can trust.

My Counseling and Coaching Approach

As a psychotherapist, executive coach, and yoga & mindfulness meditation teacher, I offer potential clients a few different ways to work with me. The common thread through all my services is using a mind-body approach to help my clients center their emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health. When we are healthy, we have the energy and wherewithal to make the changes we want to see in our lives and relationships. My clients have often shared that they appreciate my professionalism and down to earth nature in our work together.


Counseling for Adults & Couples


Individual Therapy for Adults:


I provide 1:1 psychotherapy services (including intensive sessions) that incorporate:


  • CBT (mindset work)

  • Mindfulness

  • Movement (yoga)

  • EMDR

  • Brainspotting 


Couples Therapy:


I work with couples using a culturally sensitive approach that infuses 


  • Psychodynamic therapy

  • Gottman Method 


We explore issues that are obstacles to a healthy, fulfilling relationship. I also help my clients develop new ways of being in the relationship to create a relationship culture that is healthy, serves the couple and the individuals in the couple.


Executive Coaching:


1:1 and group coaching services are provided to professional and entrepreneurial women who want to get to the next level in their career and/or start a service-based business while being in alignment with their personal goals and ideal lifestyle.


We use the Energy Leadership Index (ELI) Assessment to help bring awareness to how the client’s beliefs, thoughts, feelings and actions may be preventing from them from achieving their goals and how to go about changing them. Brainspotting can also help clients with overcoming internal blocks and obstacles to their professional and personal growth. 


Services are provided virtually with limited in person appointments available in Bronxville, NY and Fort Lauderdale, FL.
