About me

Location McLean, VA, United States
Introduction Kimberly Brooks Mazella, LPC, is a psychotherapist in private practice in the Washington, DC suburb of McLean, Virginia. Her own marriage ended in 1987 when her husband came out as gay, and since then she has worked to support straight spouses and their families in coming to terms with their new and often challenging reality. Kim works with both individuals and couples who are transitioning through the coming out process, and facilitates therapy groups for straight spouses. Kim founded The Straightforward Project as a vehicle to provide information and educational resources for straight spouses, their family & friends, and interested professionals. Kim served on the Boards of Directors of the Straight Spouse Network (SSN) and Metro DC PFLAG. Learn more at or The Straightforward Project Facebook page.
