Kimber Del Valle

Dr. 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 help individuals reconnect to
their bodies. She especially loves to growl as a way to embody our God-given healthy aggression.

Kimber loves teaching and in 2023 developed a grief program to support those who are processing significant losses. She runs “A Journey to Hope: Grief over the holidays” program and over Lent, facilitates a program that reflects on the suffering of Christ as well as the Psalms of lament called, “Lament During Lent.”


Upcoming in 2024, A Journey to Hope: A Grief Support Community, will be launching. Sign up for her newsletter, A Moment of Pause, in order to keep up-to-
date with new events and programs.


She has been married to Dennis, the empty chair guy, for 26 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 has written a memoir, Still: Making A Whole When Parts Go Missing, sharing the loss of her middle child, Baby Long Beach, during pregnancy.


She hosts 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 or follow
her at and @dr_kimber. Her daughter has successfully launched as a college student and is studying psychology with an emphasis in neuroscience. Her teenage son loves making
sourdough and 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 ’24 is Passion. She’s also participating in Gretchen Rubin’s #Writing24in24 challenge. Hobbies are many but to list a few – the outdoors, reading, watching sunsets, making memories with her community, and great food.
