I have over 30 years of combined experience working with children and families in early care and family violence settings in military and civilian environments. Supporting families of young children and professionals who work with young children are my passion. I am a Program for Infant and Toddler Care (PITC) Trainer, a certified Labor Doula, Professional Life Coach, and Emotions Mentor trained in Emotional Intelligence (EI).
Being trained in Early Childhood Education and Emotional Intelligence I understand the importance of early healthy social and emotional development in children, it is the pathway to emotionally healthy adults!
In my work, I have discovered that adults who struggle with their emotions find it difficult to succeed in their personal and professional life. Sabotaging patterns of behavior developed during childhood often become barriers later in life. If these patterns are not interrupted, they create harmful effects within the family for generations. The proven strategies I use to disrupt these patterns of behavior helps parents and caregivers to understand their own emotional intelligence, and how to support the development of their baby's mental health.
Ultimately, the goal is to help clients maximize their full EI potential and reach desired results by destroying generational barriers AND creating new ways of thinking and living their Best LIFE!!!

" With all that is going on the world, I did not want to get sucked in and honestly my methods of coping were not working. But emotions coaching help me arrive to real answers in my life. If you are reading this I recommend you start with Ms. Kimberly."

"Life coaching with Mrs. Cephas was overall a great experience. Honestly, I was a little leery about the effectiveness of counseling and life coaching. However, the sessions provided me some tools that help me work thru certain situations. It also helped reveal certain things about me I did not realize. The coaching was very beneficial and is highly recommended".
