Kim Olver, LCPC, NCC, BCC, realized in 5th grade that she was born to help others and has been helping people ever since. She has a mission to help people get along better with the important people in their lives, including themselves, at home and at work. Kim is a licensed counselor, certified coach, trainer, international speaker and author. She loves helping women with relationship challenges, especially the one we have with ourselves, and creating mental freedom for life.
Kim founded her company, Olver International, in 2004 and it has grown to include coaching services, a board-certified coaching school, coach supervision, an independent publishing company, and a speaker’s bureau. Kim has developed her proprietary process called, Mental Freedom ®, to help clients transform any painful emotions they are experiencing into something neutral or even positive. This is not a process that takes a long time; rather it is taught in six sessions and can be applied to any painful situation in a person’s life.
In addition, Kim is an award-winning author of Secrets of Happy Couples and Choosing Me Now. She co-authored Leveraging Diversity at Work with Sylvester Baugh and wrote a chapter in the book, Contemporary Issues in Couples Counseling. Kim writes a bi-monthly mental health column for the River Reporter and has also contributed to HuffingtonPost.com, PsychCentral.com, YourTango.com, HerCampus.com, Whole Living, Women’s World, Fitness Magazine, Law of Attraction Magazine, Conscious Life Journal, Counseling Today and more.
Kim has a wide range of experience, working in the fields of community mental health, corrections, child welfare, addiction, the military, couples, parenting, and self-discovery. She’s been writing a blog for over 15 years and is now in her fourth season of podcasting her show, Life = Choices; Choices = Life.
