I employed Kim Ward, Ph.D. and Hilary Stokes, Ph.D. for 8 years and found them to be a dynamic team dedicated to making a positive difference in the world. During that time they developed and managed the Psychology, Spirituality and Fitness Programs at Sanoviv Medical Institute. They demonstrated commitment, integrity and the utmost professionalism. I have great confidence in their capabilities and believe they will be an asset to any individual or organization.

During my role as project manager for the construction and start-up of the Sanoviv project, Hilary's intuition, insight & coaching enabled me to focus on seeking out the positive aspects of every situation. This allowed me to perform at a consistently higher level to achieve and exceed the goals & objectives set for the project. A true & lasting learning experience, discovering my personal power.

Wonderful, caring counselors! Drs. Kim and Hilary are wonderful counselors and coaches. My patients that I refer to them just love them! I feel very confident that they are the best at helping people to reach their true potential.

A Life Changing Event! I have known Dr. Kim Ward and Dr. Hilary Stokes for almost two years. In that time I have gotten to know them both on a professional level, and a personal level. They run a remarkable practice that addresses a multitude of mind, body and spirit practices for individuals and couples. My initial focus in starting regular sessions was stress management. I have always had a difficult time dealing with stress and wanted to make a change. How could I have known that making one phone call would change my life. If you want to see the world in a different way if you are ready to take care of yourself in ways you never thought possible then make the call. Trust me. If I can do it so can you. Dr. Ward and Dr. Stokes are amazing!

Wonderful People Brilliant Healers! My friend went to Kim for a while (he had suffered a difficult break-up). Now I can't believe the change in him. He gushed to me how much he enjoyed meeting with Kim. When is the last time you ever heard anyone gush to you about their therapist?? I have friends who have sent their friends to Kim and Hillary to rave reviews. I have known Kim for a year and have met Hillary several times, and they are both the kinds of people who you instantly feel connected to. Very warm and vibrant. I have also heard them speak on many occasions which demonstrated to me their commitment to their profession and to their clients. I know that their rates are very competitive for therapy in San Diego, and they bring an approach that I think can give much quicker results than traditional talk or cognitive-behavioral therapy. The next time I hit a rough patch in my life, I am surely seeking their help.

So much more than Counseling! It is impossible to explain in 250 words what Kim and Hillary do. There isn't a single person who would not benefit from their services. Their approach to stress management alone is probably one of the most effective and universally needed services anyone can offer. I am truly grateful for having met them.

An Excellent Alternative! Kim and Hillary are great. I love that they use alternative medicine and a holistic approach to counseling. I feel comfortable talking with them, and always leave with a fresh approach on my life. Thank you for helping me to fine tune my goals and work on myself. I believe in Authenticity Associates, the practices, and the individuals. I would recommend them to anyone who needs to do some self-exploration. Great Counselors!!

Holistic and Balanced! Dr Kim and Dr Hilary are a wonderful team who work diligently to help others. They work with individuals who have experienced loss, confusion, addiction, etc. They focus on the person's well being and health. If you have issues you can't resolve on your own or if simply need someone to talk to, do contact them. They will help.

A holistic approach to therapy! Kim and Hilary are two of the most authentic, grounded, and giving people I know. Their approach to transformational growth is based solidly in years of professional training (both of them Dr's!) with a wide range of different modalities to use that embrace the entire person's well being.

I was fortunate to work closely with Kim and Hilary during the time I was Director of Marketing for Sanoviv, a medical model health spa and licensed hospital. They were responsible for the psychological, spiritual and physical fitness programs. As I observed their abilities in developing an individual plan of healing for each and every person during their stay at Sanoviv Medical Institute, I was touched and impressed by the wisdom, kindness, professionalism and dedication which Kim and Hilary unfailingly demonstrated, resulting in remarkable and measurable results. They were highly-valued members of the staff, interacting consistently with the medical team to create treatment plans and provide an outstanding level of expertise and care.

First let me start by saying thank you for taking the time to talk to me I truly appreciate it. I have been to many counselors and I really connect with your style. I know in my heart if I did not make that commitment to you last night I would not have made the steps toward getting healthy today, I get that much so thanks! I know I have a lifetime of change and commitment ahead of me and my hope and prayer is one day I totally get it all and have a transformation and never go back, one thing for sure I am never giving up! I might fall off but I will never give up, I will keep trying practice makes perfect! Thanks you so much again, for not only helping me but my family!

I have been seeing Dr. Hilary Stokes for many years. She has literally been a life-saver. I came to her very broken. I had just gotten out of a treatment facility for PTSD & suicidality, though I still battled the suicidal thoughts and had a cutting addiction. Little did I know how skilled Dr. Stokes is in treating trauma. She exhibited a great amount of patience and true dedication to my healing process. As a result, I have not been suicidal or participated in bodily injury in several years!
In addition to being highly-skilled, I have found her to be very warm, compassionate, gentle, open and relatable. She is willing to share a bit about herself if I ask, which for me is important in fostering trust and connection. She is always sensitive to my needs and is empathic... I feel like she is really listening and hearing me. I have come to trust her immensely. She also offers many alternative techniques in addition to the traditional talking model, which is a unique bonus.
I have grown so much and am doing/feeling so much better now than I ever have in my life. I owe a huge chunk of that to Dr. Stokes. Thank you!
