About Therapist Kim Honeycutt
Kim Honeycutt graduated from Columbia College in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. From college she served as a Probation and Parole Agent with the SC Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services for two and a half years. Kim left the probation department to obtain her Master of Social Work degree from the University of South Carolina which she completed in 1998. Kim worked at Mercy Hospital’s medical detoxification unit and served Mercy Horizons Outpatient Center as an individual and group counselor for several years before entering private practice as a psychotherapist. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker; a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist; and a Certified Clinical Forensic Counselor. With over 20 years experience in the social work field, Kim brings strong clinical and personal skills to all those with whom she comes into contact. Kim works primarily with individuals who suffer from trauma and addiction; however, she is well-versed with various disorders and life dysfunctions.
Many years ago Kim’s personal struggles brought her into contact with a psychotherapist who specialized in a type of therapy called Primary Emotional Energy Recovery (P.E.E.R.). P.E.E.R. is a modality of therapy developed by Dan Jones, Ph.D and John Lee, Ph.D, that is designed to assist in bringing the body and feelings more fully into a healing process. For Kim, P.E.E.R. therapy’s ability to identify deep, core beliefs and to release energy was not only life changing for her personally it also changed how she conducts her private practice. Kim has been involved with P.E.E.R. therapy training with John Lee, Dan Jones, Connie Burns, Vijay Director, and Karen Blicher for four years. In addition to P.E.E.R., Kim utilizes the form of therapy Internal Family Systems (I.F.S.) developed by Richard Schwartz. She has completed 120 hours of training in Internal Family Systems. Kim combines P.E.E.R. and I.F.S. to best met the needs of her clientele.
The most important aspect of therapy for me is safety. It is my responsibility to provide and create a safe environment for the client through a non-judgmental, gentle, agenda-free atmosphere. The goal of therapy is the recovery of your primary emotional energy to invoke internal freedom, thus bringing external creative purposefulness.
Why I Became a Therapist
I never thought I would graduate from high school. Not because I was academically challenged, but rather quite honestly I did not believe I would live to be 18. Around the age of 11, I became a daily drinker. Alcohol brought great pain and destruction to my life and "drank" all passion and purpose from me. When I was 24, I was placed in an alcoholic medical detoxification unit. It wasn't my first time in detox but praise God it was my last. Eventually, I became a therapist because without compassionate, empathetic counselors coming into my life and teaching me how to live life without alcohol and with purpose I would have died. Today I have my masters. Today I have over 20 years of sobriety. Today I have the privilege of being a compassionate, empathetic, and purposeful therapist who helps others find and live their own purpose.
