Give Yourself a Break

Most of us are used to showing compassion to others. We often have trouble showing that same compassion to ourselves. We often say things to ourselves we would never say to a friend. All this negative self-talk can have a devastating effect on our lives.

Kim offers practical steps, specific exercises, and compassionate words to say in order to build a loving relationship with ourselves. Through inspiring stories of transformation, she helps us learn to show ourselves the kind of grace and understanding we offer to others.

Hello, I’m Kim and I am an author, and licensed counselor of 30 years. It is my pleasure to share with you Hope, Optimism and Encouragement when your world turns upside down. I’m learning some things about how to keep going and even thrive when your life becomes something you never imagined.

My challenges are physical (click here to read my story). Yours may be heartbreak with children, marriage, jobs, friends, finances, dreams or one of the many other challenges we face on a daily basis.

I would consider it a privilege to walk with you through life’s unexpected, confusing, and even blessed times.
