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 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 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.

Her daughter has successfully launched as a college student and is studying psychology with an emphasis in neuroscience. Her son, entering high 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 ’23 is Release – which includes her new book, Still: Making A Whole When Parts Go Missing. She’s also participating in #Outside23in23 through the Happier app which will plant trees for every 1 million uploads. Hobbies are many but to list a few – the outdoors, reading, watching sunsets, making memories with her community, and great food. She writes a newsletter, "A Moment of Pause", with inspiring and practical content. Sign up on her website.
