Meet the Counselors:


Kim McMillan, MA, LPC


Kim received a M.A. in Professional Counseling in 2010 from Richmont Graduate University, Atlanta, GA, and a B.S. in Christian Care and Counseling from Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, OK in 2006, where she graduated Summa cum Laude.  Kim is a trained Elijah House counselor and holds a Certificate of License from Vision Christian Campus for Christian Counseling and Ministry.  Kim is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia (LPC007500).  Kim is the Founder and Owner of her private practice Damascus Road Counseling, LLC, in Canton, GA.


Kim's passion is to help empower people with wholeness and healing: body, soul, and spirit.  With a background that encompasses over 15 years of counseling in a broad range of issues and settings, at present Kim offers Mental Health Counseling services and Christian Counseling services for all adults, including people diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety/OCD, and Trauma.  Kim also provides services to assist clients with Stress/Anger/Time Management skills and coping skills.  Kim works primarily with adult men and women to not only obtain desired goals, but to also protect long term benefits and maintenance of goals.


Kim works from a holistic perspective to help individuals feel safe and significant while in a trusted environment; leading clients to find their own voice and achieve personal growth and improved self-awareness.  Kim works with men and women age 18 and older from all ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds.  Kim uses an eclectic approach to therapy in order to individualize treatment based on stated goals and presenting problems.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is Kim's preferred therapy model, integrating a medical model approach as needed to address issues such as Bipolar Disorder, depression,  and anxiety, based on research findings that show positive outcomes.  Kim incorporates a treatment team approach by networking with physicians and other professionals to achieve the highest level of care for her clients.  Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is another model of therapy that Kim often integrates, in part, to assist clients with reaching goals such as improving emotional regulation.  Kim's work as a pastoral counselor has well equipped her to integrate Christian Counseling to clients upon request.


In an effort to educate communities and reduce mental health stigma, and to reach greater populations of people with her ministry of hope and healing, Kim is available for speaking engagements, conferences, church retreats, on site therapy groups, corporate counseling and events, and professional seminars.


Kim resides in North Georgia with her husband and high school sweetheart, Reid.  Together they have two children, Jason and Joshua- who are married to their two daughter-in-laws Julianne and Cynthia-respectively, and a granddaughter Hayliee.
