Kim Yalango
Postdoctoral Fellow

Kim completed her doctoral internship at Virginia Commonwealth University and joined CAPS in 2019 as a Postdoctoral Fellow. She has previously trained at several university counseling centers providing individual/group therapy, outreach, academic counseling, and crisis care. Kim approaches treatment from an interpersonal/dynamic lens while integrating feminist and multicultural frameworks. She strives to create an affirming space within therapy and focuses on strengths and resilience while actively exploring the impact of identity on presenting concerns. She emphasizes collaboration in treatment and values receiving feedback from clients to empower their voices in the room and encourage self-advocacy.
