About Kimberly Berka

My Experience

Kimberly is a licensed School Psychologist who has worked in the school setting for 12 years. During her time in the school setting, Kimberly has worked with children who were not yet 3 through an early childhood assessment team, all the way up to students who are almost 22 and transitioning out of services. She also worked providing therapy in the school setting to a variety of age and developmental levels. Kimberly has worked for the past two years in the private setting and has been able to work as an assessment specialist working with individuals ranging in age from 3 through 88. These experiences have allowed her to understand better how people learn, cope, and how they are functioning. She is qualified to formally assess, score and interpret results, and provide an educational diagnosis to ensure individuals receive any specialized support they may need for their education. For adults, she can assess, collaborate and consult with doctors if the assessment results indicate a need for a medical diagnosis. Kimberly also works as an executive function coach and therapist with children, adolescents, and adults.
