Kimber Del Valle
A graduate of Rosemead School of Psychology at Biola University, Kimber is a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice. Primarily a relational therapist, she’s also a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, which incorporates a kinesthetic understanding of an individual’s well- being and assists clients in reconnecting with their bodies as a way of processing experiences. She especially loves to growl as a way to embody our God-given aggression.
She has been married to Dennis, the empty chair guy, for 25 years. They love doing workshops through the Del Valle Relational Institute, which focuses on the importance of relationships and healing through them, including process groups.
Kimber recently launched a podcast called, “I Thought I Was Over This” to be a support for all those who are on a journey toward growth and healing. Read more about it at www.ithoughtiwasoverthis.com or follow her at @ithoughtiwasoverthis.podcast. Her daughter has successfully launched as a college student and is finishing up her first year in the Pacific Northwest, studying psychology (much to her chagrin).
Her son, finishing up middle school, is a YouTube and gaming fanatic when he’s not playing his violin or trying to progress toward a black belt in Jiu Jitsu. Both children regularly remind Kimber and Dennis of their personal faults should they ever feel as if they’ve attained personal growth.
Kimber’s word of ’22 is Adventure – which is a mindset more than physical events. She’s also participating in #22in22 by eating 22 new flavors of ice cream – favorite place to partake – Long Beach Creamery. Hobbies are many but to list a few – the outdoors, reading, watching sunsets, making memories with her community, and great food.
