Kimberly grew up always believing that life was supposed to be more joyful, loving and
connected than she experienced in her life and in her relationships. She was told directly or
indirectly by people and by the World to contain her Joy and light, to not stand out or be “too
much”, and to not get “too excited” for things because life and people will just let you down.
Deep down she felt and knew this was CRAP, and she carried much grief and longing for
what she knew was the Truth. Who knew that just 1 month after turning 40, she’d be divorced,
lost, and completely broken apart…. AND that THIS despair would be the hidden light that
would lead her into that life she always dreamt of!
Through a courageous, bumpy, and even magical experience of deeply grieving her marriage
and the grief she’d held in her body for nearly 40 years, and fully allowing herself to feel it all,
she has now transformed her life from one of doubt, fear, anxiety and longing into one of
more Joy, love, creativity, purpose, and passion greater than she ever believed was possible!
In learning how to love herself fully through devastating loss and grief, she ultimately has
learned what true self-love and unbridled joy truly is! One of the powerful tools in her journey
through grief has been using what she likes to call the ‘superpower tool’ of EFT (Emotional
Freedom Technique) Tapping! – see below for more on EFT!
From this journey, Kimberly now emanates a contagious, bright passion to share powerful
messages about grief and loss, and this tool of EFT Tapping with the World; she reminds us
that recognizing, honouring and choosing to allow our grief with a full, open heart to ourselves
can transform our lives by transforming the way we love ourselves (and others)! Come join
Kimberly on her show ‘Honoring Grief with Kimberly’ to begin this magnificent transformation

As human beings, we experience emotional loss and grief on a near daily basis, BUT we are
not taught to recognize these losses, how prevalent they are, and how to process what we
feel in healthy ways. Grief is an experience, NOT just one emotion, and grief can be felt and
expressed by emotions such as anger, sadness, fear, loneliness, overwhelm, numbness,
fatigue, shame, guilt etc; nearly any uncomfortable emotion can be a part of grief. We can
experience losses of hopes, dreams, expectations, losses of connection, losses of health,
losses of safety, and losses of trust in self, others and the world. There are actually over 40
different kinds of emotional loss, and with each one of these losses we experience grief – who
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT ‘Tapping’) is a powerful, somatic psychotherapy energy
tool based off the Chinese Acupuncture meridian system. Tapping with our fingers on the same
acupressure points of the face and torso where acupuncture needles would go stimulates the
natural energy flow along the body’s meridians; this helps to re-balance energy flow and shift stuck
energy that can be a result of unprocessed, trapped emotional energy. EFT helps to shift us out of
our ‘fight, flight, freeze’ stress brain into a calmer state where we can think, plan and take action
from a calmer place. While we are tapping these points, we also speak about what emotions,
sensations, thoughts, or memories are present for us; the talking part of EFT exposes and
processes issues, feelings, memories, and even physical discomfort while the tapping allows
the body and mind to stay calm during the process.

“ Her ICAN model with EFT Tapping was so much more than I could ever have expected! Right from
the start, it was as if Kimberly knew exactly the healing I needed, and her curiosity and
openness easily drew this out of me. 5 years after losing my amazing husband, I was still so overcome with grief, particularly when it came to speaking about it. Within the 1 hour session with Kimberly, Ibwas able to shift the grief within my body through the tapping process, and experience self-love andbcompassion. AND to top it all off, I now have a technique I know works that I can continue to use and grow. What an absolute gift! I honestly cannot thank you enough Kimberly!”

“The experience was incredible! I felt comfortable from the moment we started. When I started
tapping with Kimberly using the topic I chose, she was able to get into it at a deeper level. The
sentences she used brought up some pretty intense emotions that I didn’t really know was there!! I felt lighter, more free, open, and had a ton of energy after! I have tapped a bit in the past, but this session showed me just how awesome this tool is!

“Kimberly presented to our group and normalized grief and loss as a daily part of our lives. She
delivered in a way that was both engaging AND relatable, bringing a lot of peace to our members and their own experiences with grief & loss. She also offered a lot of practical tools and great resources for our audience to continue to refer to and lean into. It was over delivery in every way, and she was overall a pleasure to work with!”
