Kim Saunders, founder of Lift Yoga & Therapy

About us

My mission is to help you to find wholeness in your body, mind and spirit. As an integrative psychotherapist, I am uniquely qualified to help you to find balance in these areas when talk alone will not suffice. My background and specialties are in treating anxiety, depression, relationship problems, trauma and bereavement, as well as issues pertaining to infertility, breast cancer, and divorce. Using mindfulness techniques, I will help to empower you with practical options to shift from a stressful mind to a calm and confident one. Research has proven that stress gets trapped and locked into our muscles and tissues. My methods will help you to find freedom not only in your body, but through slowing down the racing thoughts, the “monkey mind.” I will give you, actionable steps to create new patterns that offer lasting change. After a decade-long career working in business for a large Fortune 100 Corporation, I followed my heart to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (State of Georgia LPC #4336) and opened Lift Yoga Studio in Alpharetta, blending the best of mind-body healing for my students and clients. Having worked through my own PTSD, I understand firsthand how trauma gets locked into the body…
