“I went to Southlake as a person that had never had a single therapy session. I was nervous about what to expect, but I knew that I needed the time to speak! My Therapist Kayla was absolutely professional and I immediately felt comfortable and this was a place where I could speak freely without judgement!”

Michael Y., Patient

“We have been very pleased with Southlake Counseling services. We were referred to them by of number of others and have not been disappointed. If I were to say it one statement I would say that I finally felt heard, and sometimes this is all you need. The staff is warm, professional, compassionate, and makes you feel like someone is truly coming alongside you to help.”

Jodi R., Patient

“I am a fellow clinician in the area and highly recommend Southlake Counseling. Kimberly Krueger runs a great practice and has a stellar reputation as experts on DBT techniques. Easily accessed for this region due to having multiple offices, as well as being able to bill most major insurances. She has a top notch team that is highly sought out!”

Crystal H., Local Clinician

“I attended training with Kimberly Krueger and Wendyleigh Bodick and cannot say enough good things about the skill level of the clinicians at Southlake. As a clinician with 25 years of experience myself, it is often hard to find training that is challenging and helps me grow my skill set, but this team is on the cutting edge of treatment. Any client or clinician would be well served to work with someone on the Southlake team.”
