Kim Kays

M.S., LPC Intern, LCDC

Hi, I’m Kim! I’m a counselor who specializes in helping men and women facing “now what?” You may be thinking, now what…what’s that? When life doesn’t go according to plan, that’s now what. Now what is rooted in what did or didn’t happen, presently expressed in what is or isn’t happening!

Now what is a storyteller.

Now what should I do that I feel so anxious around others?
Now what should I do that my relationship isn’t what I hoped for?
Now what should I do that I’m divorced?
Now what should I do that my kids don’t need me as much?
Now what should I do that I hate my job, but have to pay the bills?
Now what should I do that I (or someone I love) drink(s) too much?
Now what should I do that I know I struggle with food?
Now what should I do that I’m aging and feel less desirable?
Now what should I do that I’m questioning how I’ve spent my life?
In other words, “This isn’t how it was supposed to be; this wasn’t the plan. Where do I go from here?”
When we’ve lived long enough, we all encounter now what? Me too.
What’s your story? Together, let’s move from now what to the possibility of what’s next?
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

― Maria Robinson
