Kim Childs

Facing – or craving – change in your life or career?

Feeling stuck, overwhelmed or unclear about the way forward?

Need help clarifying desires, taking action and staying on track?

Let’s schedule a complimentary consultation.

If you feel there’s something more you could be living, doing and expressing, but you don’t know how to get clear, get started or get past your fears and doubts, I understand, and I can help.

I’m Kim Childs, a Certified Life and Career Coach, and I love my work. I’ve consistently taken “leaps” to follow my heart in my life and career, and I know how to guide my clients toward greater personal and professional fulfillment. I’ve been helping people clarify and realize their desires and goals since 2002 and I’d love to help you do the same!

My specialties include Positive Psychology (to increase resilience, optimism, and purposeful living), creativity (to map and manifest creative dreams of all kinds) and midlife transitions (to answer those “What’s next?” and “Now what?” questions and live into new chapters).

Let’s schedule a complimentary consultation in my Arlington, MA, office or via phone or video chat.
