The wisdom and practical approach of the concepts discussed in this book have helped me tremendously at a time I needed direction and clarity. I have been able to implement the concepts in this book in my life and watch change take its course in the most beneficial way! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Choosing Me Now. For me, it has been an amazing experience, not just a great read. I highly recommend picking up a copy and making it a new and amazing experience for yourself!
My goal was to help my son by building a more positive relationship, when initially there was almost nothing positive going on. Kim provided me a piece of ground to stand on (Choice Theory), and with her help I was able to expand that base and to change my behavior. That meant deciding what I really did or did not want to do in regard to each of my son’s issues. This process took much pressure off me and the relationship, which has improved considerably. I credit the year I invested with Kim as my coach, in which I learned a new language, behavior and way of life that has truly made a difference. I cannot recommend Kim highly enough, and I encourage anyone who thinks they are out to choices to begin working with Kim through her Coaching for Excellence program.
My mother was diagnosed with cancer. The doctors gave her six months, however, she lived three years. I found it difficult to think of her dying. I was the caregiver and was experiencing burnout—I was exhausted, irritable, cynical, depressed, confused and felt I was indispensable. I attended Reality Therapy training and was introduced to Choice Theory. During that week, Kim created an environment conducive to learning and practicing. She was also able to engage the entire group in participation. After learning Choice Theory, the thought of my mother’s death was comforting. I was able to accept the inevitable. Choice Theory gave me the resources and direction to put my life back together. After my mother died, I was able to focus on the happy times we shared. Her smile is with me and always will be.
What Kim showed us in such a beautiful way is that experiencing Choice Theory in real life is not a “Theory,” it’s a “Reality.” That no matter who you are, no matter what your background is, and no matter what religion or status you have, as long as you don’t try to use your power to control others or try to change others, and instead you focus on yourself and what you can do differently or better to improve your relationship with others, you will be successful in improving your relationship with whomever you want to, no matter who that other person is.
Relationships are difficult and in those tough times , Kim’s insight and wisdom have helped me to become the parent, husband, and friend that I want to be. It is a blessing to have someone that provides you the balance you need to evolve. I now realize that it’s not about being who “they” want you to be but being the best YOU that you can be…Thanks Kim!
I would like to express my gratitude and share my coaching experience with others. I have worked with Kim for many years. She, due to her expertise in reality therapy, has been very beneficial to me. She is nonjudgmental and her background allows for you to make your own choices and you learn to be responsible for that choice. I have also worked with Kim on a professional basis. She has provided trainings for my organization in Reality therapy and cultural competence. She was well received and my organization hopes to have her back again. I recommend Kim for relationship coaching as I have benefited tremendously.
Kim has helped me tremendously with my adolescent daughter who continually pushes my buttons! She has helped me to better understand my daughter and the reasons why she does what she does. Kim is always able to help me focus in on the real problem and provide me with the best possible solutions. I don’t know what I would do without Kim!

I imagine myself in your shoes. What you are doing is a real blessing. You travel around the globe, sacrificing your own time and perhaps comfort, to share what you know to complete strangers. And with that knowledge, these people leave feeling happier, empowered or on the road to recovery.
Kim’s almost 30 years of counseling experience and teaching Choice Theory helped me relearn so many things and gave me fresh eyes about the things I thought I knew for sure. She turned the workshop with three total strangers into a quality friendship experience for all of us.
I wanted to write in to send you my heartfelt gratitude for all that you have done for the past 4 days.The past 4 days has shown me more than I could have ever hoped for.Pointing out to me that power was significance was surprisingly liberating for me.I really don’t know how you did it, but it was as though you figured that my question meant deeper to me. Your answer attended not just to the question but to show me the strength of self-acceptance. I have to admit I was emotional by your answer, realizing how I haven’t accepted myself fully. Your response made me further evaluate how I perceived my life and my existence towards others. I truly thank you for that.
This book fits right in with my new attitude of living my life on my terms. Time out for looking to others for permission to do me. It provides great solutions for choosing to do what works for you and moves you out of that guilty feeling for those who are used to putting others first. I love this book and have added it to a list of must read books for the ladies I coach.
