Clinical Psychologist

Kimberly Vandegeest-wallace, PhD

Kimberly Vandegeest-Wallace, PhD
Assistant Professor

As an undergraduate, I graduated with honors from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with an emphasis in child development.  I continued my education at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, where I received my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology, followed-up by my post-doctoral fellowship training at the University of Wyoming.

I have presented to both university students and community members on the issues of stress management, testing anxiety, date rape, conflict resolution, communication skills, sexual decision making, team building and diversity.  Special areas of interest include sexual disorders, sexual orientation (gay, lesbian, bi-sexual), gender identity and expression, women's issues, eating disorders, sexual abuse recovery, grief, relationship concerns, domestic violence, mood disorders and personality differences.  In addition, I have been involved with sexual harassment education and prevention.  Currently, I am working toward board certification as a sex therapist. I take a great deal of pleasure in my work.  I enjoy the motivation and intellect of the students and resident at KUMC.  I believe in the power of the human spirit to heal itself.  I work toward empowering folks to make the changes they see as necessary.  I see the therapist/client relationship as being a partnership in which the client takes the lead. In my free time, enjoy spending time with my husband, Mark, and my two sons, Rhett and Gabe.  I love to cook, garden, listen to live music, ride my bike and hang with friends.  I also dabble in photography and painting.
