startup nation, meet: Dr. Kim Grocher

As our private practice coach at the Private Practice Startup, Dr. Kim Grocher is committed to helping other therapists design and build the private practice of their dreams.

Dr. Kim provides executive coaching to professional women and creative entrepreneurs who want to achieve their career and leadership goals while aligning their lifestyle goals to achieve optimal wellness and satisfaction in all areas of their life. She loves working with professionals to help them align their business goals with their ideal lifestyle while being physically, mentally and spiritually healthy.

She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who maintains a thriving private practice in the New York City/NJ area and Fort Lauderdale, FL where she provides therapy to women navigating mood, anxiety, trauma and reproductive mental health concerns. She also works with couples struggling with communication, intimacy, and cultural differences. She also provides immigration evaluations and assisted reproductive psychological consultations. Dr. Kim is a certified yoga and mindfulness meditation teacher and integrates these practices into her work with clients.

Dr. Kim is an adjunct professor at Columbia University School of Social Work and Lecturer of Social Work in Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College. Dr. Kim earned a BS in Psychology from Towson University in Baltimore, MD, MSW from Howard University in Washington DC, MA in Media Studies and Media Management from The New School in New York City and PhD in Social Work from Fordham University in New York City.

She completed post-graduate training in Psychodynamic Couple Therapy at the Training Institute for Mental Health in NYC and received coach training through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC). Her research focuses on mind-body therapies to improve health outcomes for Black women. She was a fellow in the inaugural Media and Medicine program at Harvard Medical School where she focused on creating content addressing health disparities in Black women using yoga.

During her down time, Kim loves film, photography and traveling. She has been taking French classes for fun and has been selected to attend a writer and artists residency in France later this year.
