Dr. Kimberly Hall
B. December 5th, 1963,
D. September 15th, 2020.
Kim was born in Nashua, NH to Ann and Norman Hall and a loving family with three older siblings. After a happy childhood and High School years in southern New Hampshire Kim attended Plymouth State University. She later relocated to New York City, where she got her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the New School for Social Research. She completed her post-doctoral internship and fellowship at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York City. Following graduation, Kim stayed within the hospital system and worked at the Women's Health Project for several years. She then went into private practice full time but always retained her connection to the hospital by supervising interns as part of the Voluntary Faculty. She became Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Morningside and West (formerly St. Luke's and Roosevelt) in 2016. Kim's clinical work was deeply meaningful to her and she specialized in working with adults with histories of trauma. She continued to work until the day before she went into the hospital (September 6th), at the end of her long and unflinching battle with breast cancer and Parkinson's Disease. Kim loved the outdoors, cycling, travel, music, art, and politics, but she loved her family and friends most of all. She was an authentic, insightful, kind person, and an active listener. Kim was quick-witted with a bright, compassionate spirit. She had an infectious smile, a warm laugh, and a sparkle in her eye. Kim was secure and true to herself, was a generous and devoted friend, a loving and dedicated wife and mother. She is survived by her her husband Matthew Zimbelmann, their twin daughters Dakota and Zoe--her greatest joy, her parents, Ann and Norman Hall, her sisters Cindy McMahon and Janet Everett, and her brother Rick Hall, along with their spouses, many nieces and nephews and grandnieces and grandnephews, and several other brothers- and sisters-in-law, parents-in-law, cousins, aunts and uncles and many friends, colleagues, and grateful patients. Kim's was a life well lived, and she is, and will always be dearly missed by all whose lives she touched.
