Hi, I'm Kim.
Trauma & Attachment Counsellor | First Responder Wife | Mom of Three
Welcome, I am so glad you found your way here. Whether you are a first responder family or organization serving as police, fire, corrections, dispatch, nurse, doctor, emergency services, search and rescue, paramedic, social work, mental health professional, victim services work ... you belong.
Your work is a family calling. I know all too well the unique challenges first responder families have; I have been the wife of a police detective for 20 years and a mental health professional 22 years. In our family we experienced operational and secondary stress injuries.
I believe our biggest resource to thrive in this lifestyle is our relationships within our family and with other people. My hope is you might find a community of first responder families to support you in Resilience Academy, or resources to strengthen your relationships.
It is my joy to work alongside First Responder Organizations and Families through consulting, coaching and education to support you to thrive, not just survive.
