About Kim

I was born and raised in Michigan and I’ve never moved from the Mitten State.  I love it here.  Michigan is kind of like the cul-de-sac of the country – you don’t usually drive into Michigan unless you have a desire to be here – it’s not a state people typically drive through to get to another state.

I’m married with 4 adult children and several grandchildren.  Through marriage, divorce, remarriage, blended family struggles as well as all the stages of parenting from infant to grandchildren, life has brought many opportunities to learn and successfully grow from.

I earned my Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University and I hold an LPC license in the state of Michigan.  I am a Board Certified TeleMental Health Counselor (BC-TMH), which allows me the ability to offer excellent flexibility in online counseling methods in my state.  Due to Covid19, I no longer have face-to-face sessions in my office.  I only provide online virtual counseling through secure HIPPA compliant video chat.  Clients must live in the state of Michigan.

My focus even in college was strengthening families with a heavy concentration on parenting styles and its effect on childhood behavior.  The name of my business actually has a duality in meaning.

While most of my time is spent working with parents who want to be confident and empowered, I also understand the power in parenting and “HOW” we were parented and what we experienced as a child can affect the way we react and respond to the people around us as we grow into adults.  The dynamics of our early childhood home can have a lasting impression and sometimes those impressions can be hurtful emotionally, physically, and spiritually, and they can impact us in every aspect of our lives, from trust in relationships, to fear of taking risks, or the desire to be controlling to counteract being over controlled as a child, to many other internal responses that can negatively impact lives.

So, take a deep breath and know your journey toward healing and overcoming is just about to start!  I am able to be objective while building a rapport with my clients as we work together toward a common goal – a better life.
