Hi, my name is Kimm Moss, I'm an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) in private practice as a therapist with the Mosaic Wellness Center. My philosophy on therapy and practice starts with a personalized, client-centered, and strengths based approach to your needs. I am seeking clients who are committed to personal growth and to finding their best, authentic self. My goal as a therapist is to provide support and feedback for my clients as they develop hope, skills, education and revelation. I want my clients to realize change and live lives of purpose and joy. I believe that every challenge in life brings us a gift of opportunity to be transformed into a stronger, wiser, kinder and healthier person. Yes, that person can be you!
Multigenerational therapy for individuals, couples and

and women's issues.

I graduated from Stanislaus State University with a bachelor's degree in psychology in 2002 and a Master of Social Work degree in 2008, Magna Cum Laude. I am licensed by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (#71003). in the last 10 years I have worked as a medical social worker providing care management, resources, and counseling services to families and older adults. I've worked as a school counselor at Soulsbyville Elementary School, working closely with students from pre-K to eighth grade and their families. I interned in a social work setting with Summerville Elementary School, and interned for the the Center for Non-Violent Community (CNVC), working with women's groups, children and youth on probation. I've also volunteered working with pregnant youth, teen mentees and led friendship groups for adolescent girls.
What have I learned from working with hundreds of multigenerational members of our community? So Much! There is so much I see to treasure and value in each person in each stage of life. It has also taught me the importance of treating the whole person. This is the beauty of the social work perspective to me. It accounts for the whole person, including biological, social, spiritual and psychological. It is also why I am expanding my practice to include health and wellness coaching. After over 20 years in healthcare, working in both the medical and holistic health settings, I've come to understand the value of an integrative approach to health. This approach can help one find the most healthy and fulfilling life. "The body doesn't lie." It's important we pay attention and listen to what our body is saying. I believe our best life is one lived in the best health. So I am happy to journey with you in getting on the path of not only your best mind, but healthiest body and spirit.
THE GOOD LIFE IS A PROCESS, NOT A STATE OF BEING. IT IS A DIRECTION NOT A DESTINATION.

LOVE IS PATIENT, LOVE IS KIND. IT DOES NOT ENVY, IT DOES NOT BOAST, IT IS NOT PROUD. IT DOES NOT DISHONOR OTHERS, IT IS NOT SELF SEEKING, IT IS NOT EASILY ANGERED, IT KEEPS NO RECORD OF WRONGS. LOVE DOES NOT DELIGHT IN EVIL BUT REJOICES WITH THE TRUTH. IT ALWAYS PROTECTS, ALWAYS TRUSTS, ALWAYS HOPES, ALWAYS PERSEVERES.

With Regard to Sleep
Did you know that 1 in 3 people are sleep deprived, getting less than seven hours of sleep per night? Sound familiar? According to a 2016 study by the CDC, this group will most likely experience serious health problems. Not only could a regular sleep deficit seriously affect one’s long-term health, but real consequences can be experienced now. A profound impact on all areas of a person’s life including health, career, relationships, and mental health could be catastrophic unless change is on the horizon.
Who wants depression, anxiety, wrinkles, weight gain, memory issues, lower bone density, decreased muscle mass and thinner skin? Count me out! However these undesirable results are what you’ll be signing up for if you are in the sleep-deprived camp. Thankfully there are some helpful hacks to get you out of your slumber slump.
Turn off all electronics an hour before bedtime. Better yet, leave all devices, including your smartphone, out of the bedroom. These gadgets stimulate the brain and are counter productive to needed deep sleep.
Listen to your body. If you’re feeling tired, then go to bed. Don’t power through an objective to the detriment of your health. Plan better throughout your day to eliminate the ”all-nighters”.
Work it out. Exercise reduces stress and creates a need for sleep.
Get more out of bedtime by watching what you put in your body. Don't drink caffeine or eat spicy foods six hours before bedtime. These are stimulants and obviously not good for counting sheep. Alcohol should be avoided two hours before you say good night, it will keep you out of the deep sleep you need.
There you have it. If you need to catch more Zzzs, do yourself a favor and try one of these sleep hacks. As you see the hours increase and your life enhanced, try another, then another. Take care of yourself; you are worth the best health you can get. Mind. Body. Life. Thanks for reading and check back for more Real Life Hacks.
