As a mom, wife, mom, family member and professional, I know the stresses that come with being in a family. I also recognize that sometimes we just need help reaching our goals. That is why I first decided to try coaching—I understood that although things were going well, they could be better. Coaching helped me reach potential that I didn’t even know I had (and helped me to publish my first book)! Now I’m happy to have the chance to help others reach their goals through family life coaching.

What I like best about coaching is that it is a partnership.
You are the expert of your family, and as a coach, I will honor your expertise and work with you as you identify your goals, create a plan, and take action steps to improve your life.
I bring expertise in family science and coaching and I’m happy to share my knowledge, but I will always expect you to guide the process. I believe there is no better way to make change.
I take 1-2 coaching clients each year pro-bono and in exchange I ask for a minimum of four sessions to work on goals of your choice. I do this to keep current for teaching and practice. If you would like to work with me as your coach, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Does coaching work? Science says, yes! There is literature on the efficacy as coaching and I’ve had great feedback from clients as well. Here’s what one former client said:
“I came to work with Kim as I knew I wanted a change, but I wasn’t clear about what change I really wanted. Through our coaching, I was able to clearly identify a few goals and work towards them. One goal was to become healthier so that I could do more activities with my kids. I really wanted to ride a roller coaster with my kids. I’m happy to say that not only did I lose 50 pounds, I was able to ride that roller coaster. More importantly, I’m now able to share many experiences with my kids. I think that helps me be a better dad.”
