Hi! I'm Kim
Founder and Director of studioAWEsome
I love color and
I think brains are super cool.
I am a parent and partner in a neurodiverse, multiracial family, humbly living on Kalapuya land.
I bring the following education and experience into all of the studio's design, development, and facilitation:
20+ years experience in the Trauma Recovery field
Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) Certified Facilitator (Karen Purvis, TCU)
Therapeutic Life Story Work Certified Facilitator (Richard Rose)
Narrative Medicine Facilitator (Northwest Narrative Medicine Collaborative)
Licensed Educator, teaching in both traditional and non-traditional classrooms
Pastoral care and spiritual direction
Personal and professional connection to the adoption and foster care community and the therapeutic partners who support them
Most importantly, I bring ten transformative years sharing stories with my Friends in the circle. To each of you, thanks for showing me the awesome-ness of Wonder. You are the true creators of studioAWEsome.
