Kimberly May


Kimberly May, LPC-S, LMFT is the founder of Substance Use Therapy in Austin, TX.  She received her BA in psychology and earned her master’s degree in counseling from St. Edward’s University.

Kimberly worked for many years in harm reduction, providing counseling services to those receiving medication assisted treatment.  It was in this work that she developed a passion for this population.

Wanting to avoid a completely linear career path, Kimberly moved on to Integral Care where she served as clinical supervisor and later Practice Manager for seven programs in the IDD Division, including IDD crisis services.  In this capacity, Kimberly developed and provided trainings for both the Travis County Sheriff’s Office and the Austin Police Department.

After years away, Kimberly missed working in substance use.  She founded Substance Use Therapy where she specializes in serving individuals, couples, families whose lives have been impacted by drugs and alcohol. She works from a harm reduction model to support people wherever they are on the continuum of use.
