Meet our Staff

Kim Singleton, CAC-AD         
Owner

I have been happily married for 28 years and have 3 wonderful sons. I have been fortunate to work in the behavioral health field since my graduation from Towson University in 1995. My career began with the Division of Parole and Probation where I worked as a substance abuse counselor/assessor for the Correctional Options program. In 1999, my journey took me to the private sector. I began working for EJAL Health Services as a Clinical Supervisor and after almost 23 years I continue to work there as the Program Director. In 2015 I had the dream of opening my own business to continue my work helping those in need. Along with the support of my business partner Pnina Barber we opened KP Counseling Services, which continues to serve the community today.

Tony Shaw, LCPC, LCADC
Program Director/Mental Health Therapist

 

I have an MS in Addiction Psychology from Coppin State University, and I am an LCPC and a LCADC with more than 15 yrs of clinical experience across a variety of settings including outpatient substance abuse and mental health clinics, crisis intervention, structured outpatient programs, inpatient detox, non-profits, and private practice.

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker and Certified Associate Counselor specializing in Alcohol and Drug addiction. With over 10 years of experience in one-on-one substance abuse counseling and two years of providing psychotherapy under the supervision of an LCSW-C, I bring a wealth of knowledge and empathy to my practice. Currently, I serve as a therapist at KP Counseling Services, where I provide compassionate care and support to my clients. My professional journey is marked by my commitment to helping clients achieve significant milestones, whether that involves ensuring their safety or assisting them in obtaining essential resources through collaboration with community organizations. My educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Towson University and a master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Maryland, Baltimore. I am certified and licensed by the Maryland Board of Counselors and Therapists and the Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners. My therapeutic philosophy is rooted in Motivational Interviewing and the Stages of Change model, viewing clients as collaborators in setting and achieving their therapeutic goals. My approach is both client-centered and active, offering guidance, education, and suggestions with the client's permission. I am also dedicated to providing trauma-informed care, ensuring a safe and supportive environment for all clients. Beyond my professional life, I enjoy video games, reading, playing music—especially drums—and spending time outdoors on pleasant days. Fluent in both English and Spanish, I am well-equipped to serve a diverse clientele. I am open to working with adults of all ages, backgrounds, genders, religions, and sexual orientations, with a particular interest in supporting individuals experiencing intimate partner violence and supporting transgender individuals.
