Our Nature Is Balance
How would your life be different if you believed that within every painful period lies a seed of opportunity for greater personal understanding, clarity and compassion? Would you look for that seed rather than giving into the fear, numbing the pain or feeling victimized? Is that even possible? Yes. With support to find your courage to live through wholeness, life's pain and loss can reveal opportunities for healing and hope.
By honoring the interplay of mind, body and spirit I am passionate about enlivening my client's desire to live through wholeness. The whole person counseling perspective views each individual as an energetic being and supports honest exploration and acceptance of all feelings toward an ever-evolving view of self.
The goal of counseling, whether it be an individual, a couple or family, is to evaluate mental/emotional patterns, belief systems, and life circumstances that are creating difficulties and pain.
We know that the human body is energy. The energy centers or chakra centers hold the “soft ware” or blueprints of the energetic body therefore it is helpful to learn about and interact with our blueprints and emerging patterns.
Sustainable Life Rhythm (SLR) is an ever evolving, client centered plan created with each client as they become self-aware, self-compassionate, and personally responsible.
A compassionate, wise therapist
After working with Kim for over two years, I realize how fortunate I am to have found a therapist with such insight and compassion. Kim always gives her full focus and energy to me during each and every session. She has traveled alongside me during a very emotional journey, and has proven to be fully capable and responsive to me at every juncture. Her insights have helped me uncover the patterns and relational dynamics that are ultimately leading to healing for me and my family. She is gentle and kind, yet with a solid core of strength that is always reassuring. I trust her completely and highly recommend her.
Kim Nichols is phenomenal. Before meeting Kim, my husband was very skeptical about the potential for counseling to help our situation. Throughout our sessions together, she gracefully navigates the tension between our conflicting perspectives in ways that simultaneously honor our authentic selves, forge common ground, and facilitate mutual understandings. What has been especially helpful is Kim's ability to provide language and insight as tools for us to see our situation from a big picture, bird's eye view. Kim has a gift for getting to the heart of the issue without sacrificing warmth, humor, and empathy. As long as Kim keeps her practice open and as long as we need counseling, we have no desire to see anybody else except Kim. She is terrific!
My counseling experience with Kim was truly life changing. With support and empathy, and her incredible intuition, she helped me find a new approach to living my life truthfully and with an inner sense of calm even in the midst of chaos. She helped me let go of anger and fear and to learn to love and trust. These changes have remained with me and carried me through other difficult life situations long after my counseling ended. My time spent with Kim was invaluable and was the critical element in my journey of self discovery. She is an amazing woman and a gifted counselor.
My experience working with Kim Nichols has truly been a journey of self discovery. Her approach is straight forward, self aware, self responsibility based. That is true healing. Kim holds sacred space for the deepest form of healing to occur. I have referred many to Kim with the utmost confidence. Through her range of experience and expertise she has provided me with an individually based invitation to experience life as a self actualized, whole person. Through my work with Kim, my eyes have been opened to the true gifts of my empowered self and I have been on an amazing journey to "become" my empowered self in every area of my life. I am forever grateful to Kim for this opportunity and for her commitment to life!
