We had the good fortune of connecting with Kim Wilson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kim, Let’s talk about principles and values – what matters to you most?
Love is a value and principle for me. I believe love wins. One of my favorite quotes is by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Love keeps me focused on the positive. It helps me not get stuck in negativity.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?

My name is Kim Wilson. I am a psychotherapist, podcaster and motivational speaker. I have a private counseling practice and a business that offers workshops and seminars called, “Kim Wilson Experience.” I use my education in human behavior to facilitate dynamic workshops and seminars on building healthy relationships. I am also an author of a book titled, “I Need a Session.” It’s a talk show on YouTube! My podcast, titled “Amazing Relationships with Kim Wilson,” is featured in iTunes, Spotify, iHeart Radio and many other platforms. My favorite word is “Amazing.” My motto is, “Why settle for okay when amazing is an option.”
 I started my business in 2013. Getting started was not difficult because I was ready to call my own shots. The most difficult thing has been accepting that lack of support from certain people. I continuously overcome challenges by staying connected to supporters and like-minded individuals. Some of my lessons learned are:
– If something does not add to your growth or happiness, give yourself permission to move on and let go.
– Turn pain into purpose.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We would visit one of my favorite restaurants – Pappadeaux. Listen to live music at St. James off Camp Creek Pkwy. We would catch an exhibit at the High Museum. Check out the clearance section at Dillard’s or Macy’s. At some point, we’d make a meal together and chat over southern iced-tea.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I am forever grateful for the solid support from my husband, parents, family and friends.
