KIM KURTZ

As a marriage and family therapy graduate student and an empty nester, my passion for helping couples and families has been a long time in the making. As an adult child of divorce, my heart breaks for those who are dealing with a family in crisis. Whatever the outcome of family strife, freedom and joy can be found again. Human beings and relationships are complex and beautiful. Our differences are brilliant and inspiring, as well as challenging, and our commonalities offer us life giving connection.

My goal when working with clients is to help them find freedom and experience joyful living. Through the complications of life, we often find ourselves surviving from day to day. Surviving is not enough. We were made to live in the freedom that creates a joy filled life. However, we can easily get stuck. We may experience barriers created by conflict, pain from the past, depression & anxiety, disappointment, and broken relationships that hold us captive. Some go through life mostly unseen, passed over, or forgotten. I find it a great joy to break this distressing cycle by seeing each client and honoring their story. It is an honor, as an intern, to work with clients on their journey toward restoration and wholeness, and ultimately, freedom.

Kim lives in Westfield, Indiana, with her husband of 25 years and serves as an intern at FFC. She has 2 daughters, one is a junior at Ball State University, and the other is a freshmen at Purdue. Kim received her bachelor’s of business administration from Western Michigan University and is currently enrolled in the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Indiana Wesleyan University. Her specialty is families, couples, and adolescents. Kim has also published her first book in 2018, Pouring In, Tipping the Scales in Favor of a Personal, Passionate, and Permanent Faith in Your Kid.
