Dr. Kim Grocher Private Practice Coach - small size .jpg.jpg

You deserve to have support and encouragement while navigating the new world of entrepreneurship.

Let us help you confidently launch and grow your private practice!

Dr. Kim Grocher, LCSW has been in private practice since 2011. While it was always a goal for her and one of her primary reasons for becoming a social worker, she was afraid to take the leap even after years of practicing in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings including inpatient and outpatient mental health/substance abuse facilities, sub-acute/long-term care, corporations (such as New York Times, The Times, Viacom, etc.), and group practice. 


She started with part-time private practice after completing her post-graduate training in Psychodynamic Couple Therapy at the Training Institute for Mental Health in NYC, because the couple she saw in the program wanted to continue working with her in private practice. 


Using her resourcefulness, she quickly figured out the essentials that needed to be in place to have a successful part-time private practice and soon began taking on additional clients. 


Kim understood the importance of investing in herself and her business. She joined the Private Practice Startup’s Marketing E-Course + Coaching program and then became an ambassador for the Private Practice Startup’s Facebook Group. 


After several years of part-time solo practice and working in a group practice, Kim took the leap to work full time in her private practice. Currently, she maintains a private practice in the New York City/NJ area, Maryland and South Florida where she provides psychotherapy with couples and professional women who are navigating mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, and reproductive mental health concerns. Additionally, Kim is a certified yoga and mindfulness meditation teacher and integrates yoga and mindfulness practices into her work with clients.


Kim is also an executive coach, certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), the world’s most esteemed professional coaching organization.  She is passionate about helping other professionals and entrepreneurs work through their fears to create businesses that align with their values and lifestyle goals, so they can design lives they are excited about living. 


In addition to her clinical and coaching work, she has extensive experience as a trainer and educator. Kim is an adjunct professor at Columbia University School of Social Work, Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service, and Lecturer of Social Work in Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College.


Kim loves helping people improve their health and well-being by any means necessary whether it’s through working directly with clients, using her media production background to create media that expands mental health awareness, or helping clinicians grow their practices so more people can receive the help they need.  She has helped many mental health clinicians not only launch their private practices, but create thriving private practices that they LOVE working on and in. 


After graduating with her Doctoral degree in Social Work at Fordham University in New York City, Dr. Kim joined the Private Practice Startup as one of their private practice coaches. 


Kimberly’s clients have described her coaching style as: 


  • Extremely personable, always encouraging, and a creative and insightful force…” -Anastasia F. 


  •  “Despite her determination to see me thrive, she was never pushy or overbearing. She simply shined a light on my potential and my patterns and helped me to determine a way to make the best out of them both…”- Candace T.


  • She was able to gently coax me away from my comfort zone and guide me through my “feelings of being stuck”. I was challenged into identifying and stretching limits I had unknowingly set for myself and moving closer to finding my true passion during each session.” - Naa P. 


When Kimberly isn’t working with her clients, she enjoys practicing yoga, film, photography, spending time outdoors with her husband and pup, Mr. Marley, traveling and exploring art, culture, and architecture wherever she happens to be located at that moment.

Dr. Kim's Private Practice Coaching
Rave Reviews... 


“I had the opportunity to work with Dr. Kim Grocher as my private practice coach while I transitioned from part-time to full-time private practice. Dr. Kim helped me work through all my self-limiting thoughts and perspectives. She also coached me as I left my full-time job at an underserved community clinic. I relied on this coaching so much and I will always be grateful for Kate, Katie and Kim!!”

- Dr. Danielle Graddick

“The Private Practice Startup’s E-Course, coaching sessions, and resources have been a huge help! I learned a ton about marketing and feel so much clearer about my niche and messaging. I’m making progress with my business goals and feeling a lot more confident to take the steps I was nervous about before. Dr. Kim’s coaching provided me with the accountability, guidance, and positivity I needed. I’m very happy I invested in this program!”

“Coaching with Kim is super helpful. She has the ability to see others' strengths clearly, and really challenged me to name and own areas where I excel. She is compassionate, pushed me when I needed to be pushed, and offered a lot of positive affirmations along the way. I started coaching feeling pretty lost and overwhelmed, and now I feel much more confident, clear, and directional. I would highly recommend Kim as a coach and mentor.”

- Anne Hosey, LPC
