If you're feeling
disconnected from others (including yourself)
like you’re “too much” or “not good enough”
If you've found yourself
paralyzed by perfection
avoiding risks out of fear of rejection or being perceived as weak
I'm here to help you
kick shame to the curb,
love yourself more,
and be your authentic self!
shame is at the root of many of our problems,
but we don't talk about it,
cause it convinces us we're weak.
"Shame is that critical inner voice that whispers, 'who do you think you are' and who tells you, 'you’re not good enough'. It’s the voice that says there is something about you that is unacceptable, that makes you unworthy of love and belonging, and that will make people want to disconnect from you if they ever find out." - Brené Brown
i will help you
understand shame and how it intensifies your struggles
gain practical skills for shame resilience
punch your fears in the face
tap into vulnerability during difficult times
get to know and fall in love with your authentic self
deepen your connection with others
fine tune your empathy skills
awaken your creative side
develop a gratitude practice
live a more “Wholehearted” life
the good news...
you can combat shame by living wholeheartedly...
By having the courage to show up, strength to be vulnerable, & belief that you're worthy of love, belonging, & greatness!
why invest in shame?
According to best-selling author and researcher, Dr. Brené Brown, shame is an epidemic in our culture that’s seldom talked about, yet is at the root of many forms of negative thinking and behavior, and is even linked to depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addiction, anger, and many other types of disorder and dysfunction.
Shame can stop you from loving yourself and living an authentic life. Shame can rip your motivation and self-confidence to shreds. And shame is to blame when you avoid difficult situations out of the fear of vulnerability or failure.
For men, shame says things like: “Don’t be perceived as weak”.
For women, shame says things like: “Do it all, do it perfectly, and never let them see you sweat” ... a web of unattainable, conflicting, competing expectations about who we are and who we’re supposed to be.
Shame hates to have it's story told, and it doesn't want to have a voice... It probably doesn't even want you reading this right now, or it's judging you (or me) the whole time.
If it's telling you things like this is all crap, and that you'll never be one of those people who puts yourself out there or loves yourself just the way you are,
I'm here to assure you that you're enough and you're not alone!
Trust me... if I can stand up to shame, you can too...
And I'm here to support you along the way!
I'm on a mission to face shame head on, tell my story, support others in their own storytelling process, and start a WHOLEHEARTED LIVING MOVEMENT...
Wanna join me?! Let's do this! What are you waiting for??

your guide to wholeheartedness
Hi! I’m Kim. I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Washington state, and I’ve been intrigued and excited about Brené Brown's’ work ever since I saw her first TED talk on Vulnerability back in 2010.
Since then, I’ve read all of her books, watched countless interviews and talks, and have participated in her online courses. In May 2017, I traveled to Tulane University in New Orleans to begin my journey toward professional certification in The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™. In July 2018, I became a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator-Candidate (CDWF-C), and in Jan 2018, I became a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (CDWF).
I currently offer groups, retreats, intensives, and workshops using The Daring Way™.
I also utilize The Daring Way™ methodology in my counseling and coaching practice with individuals and couples, and have received nothing but positive feedback about how awesome, applicable, and relatable Brené's work is to their life and growth process.
