Hi! I’m Kimberly Corson, PhD.
Executive Coach, Leadership Coach,
& Catalyst for Change.
I’m a developmental psychologist, podcaster, and leadership coach that specializes in guiding high-achieving clients through transformational moments in their life and career. My approach combines both my PhD in developmental psychology and Master’s Degree in literature and creative writing for a uniquely effective blend of art and science that helps people tune into their thoughts and emotions, reconnect with their inner voice, manage fear, and embark on a healthy, balanced path to success.
Highly, highly recommend.
I love the way Dr. Kim works! I appreciate her mentality, our conversations and I always look forward to meeting with her. 🙂 Highly, highly recommend her for peace of mind.

Igniting my Imagination
The exercises Dr. Kim gives are things I never thought about before. They ignited a part of my brain and imagination that I don’t ever put to use. Her coaching has actually made a huge difference in the way I manage projects and is a reminder to keep an open mind about how creative I can be.

Helping me "in the moment"
A huge breakthrough
I’ve seen a lot of growth in my overall ability to see myself and the world around me through a clearer lens. I am less afraid, more at peace, and much less judgmental of those who don’t agree with my perspective in life. My spirituality and faith have increased. I’m feeling my emotions so much more–the whole spectrum of emotions–and I feel grateful for them. I feel like I’m on the verge of a huge breakthrough.

Struggles Lead to Opportunity
I have been struggling lately with the pandemic, but it has had an interesting effect on my current and future career goals. Perhaps for a lot of people this extra thinking and breathing time has led to me really focusing in on my goals. The exercises Dr. Kim gives me really help to fine tune what is important to me and how that translates into which opportunities to pursue.

Talking to Children about Violence
When violence happens, especially in a school shooting situation, children and parents can feel fearful and at risk. Knowing how to talk to a child can help ease their fear, give them a sense of personal control, and help them navigate the uncertainty that comes with high profile acts of violence.
The Ventral Vagal System
The ventral vagus helps us to feel connected, safe, and able to access our prefrontal cortex (the part of the brain that can think clearly and make decisions)
The Dorsal Vagal System
The dorsal vagus is a nerve that is common in all mammals. Normally, it’s helpful in regulating between your arousal and relaxation. When stress is unrelenting, however, the dorsal vagus kicks in to help us freeze. It’s the system of shutdown.
