Sharmen Kimbrough

Relationship Coach

Sharmen Kimbrough, MA has worked as a counselor (or lay counselor) since 1995, but took a few years off to stay at home with her kids. She completed a year-long internship at an inpatient drug and alcohol addiction treatment center and has done extensive volunteering with teens and young moms through her church and the local pregnancy care center. Currently, she works primarily with women and couples who are trying to untangle the mess of emotional and spiritual abuse and find a way to heal and begin to build healthier relationships. The backbone of her work is built much more upon experience than book-learning. She has experienced a lifetime of learning how to navigate destructive behavior and emotional abuse, as well as divorce and single-parenting.

Sharmen specializes in navigating relationships from a Christ-centered perspective. She brings a strong sense of optimism to the table and is often able to reframe issues in a way that brings insight and motivation to change. She is most passionate about helping people get in touch with what is going on in their heart and learning to live life well with authenticity and integrity.  She loves speaking hope into hard situations and watching people grab hold of that hope to work toward a breakthrough in the mess they’re facing.

Our culture certainly promotes detaching sex from relationships, claiming it’s not hurting anybody, especially if it’s consensual.

Why Is Self-Care So Important?

Leaving Yourself Empty Many of us spend much of our lives pouring ourselves out for others. As a daughter, a son, a mother, a husband, a wife, a friend—you’ve given significant amounts of your time and energy to love, serve, care for, and bless the people around you. You’ve lived as if your love could heal them and your vision for them would empower and sustain them.

Letting Go of Snooping

I need the truth to get back to normal. The first thing we tend to do when our spouse does something to cause suspicion is go digging, scrounging up any and every possible detail and angle we can find to help us “know” what is really going on. Suddenly, we have a desperation to fit pieces together that we didn’t even realize were missing or to find evidence to disprove what we now “know” so we can “go back to normal.”
