As a licensed psychotherapist, I strive to promote all backgrounds to further the prosperity of the human species as a whole.

There is typically a 6-month waiting list for treatment with Kimberly "Ms. MTV" Bass. Working with the Department of Defense, Veterans, celebrities and civilian families I strive to provide a sliding self pay scale and private insurance. To help as many people possible increase self awareness using any of the following methods: multi-modality therapy, prayer, meditation, Journaling, healthy diet, exercise, nature, art, crystals, Tibetan bowls, and/or chants for clarity. Something in you desires to create an existence that you deserve. Happiness is forever evolving so we must evolve to sustain happiness.

While interviewing national hip-hop artists, covering red carpet events, being at video shoots Kimberly is enmeshed with people with mental illness, substance abuse, legal and behavior issues. Kimberly's history as a hip-hop journalist and mental health worker has placed her on the front lines with issues plaguing the hip-hop community.

In 2021, Kimberly became a private provider of psychotherapy insurance panels. She is offering telehealth counseling and in-person sessions. In 2019, Kimberly began working for the Department of Defense. Office of Secretary Defense as an expert to government officials. She began counseling military and government families, couples, children and adults.
