Course Testimonials

"I highly recommend this course for anyone who is ready to examine their relationship with exercise. As a clinician, I appreciate the evidence based approach that Kim has taken in creating this course!" - Niki D.

"This course was incredibly eye opening, as I thought for sure I knew the basic myths about movement & exercise. But with most things in life, there is a lot hidden from view that is difficult to catch. I learned valuable information throughout this course, and I feel lucky to be able to unlearn the movement myths I thought were fact!" - Taryn B.

Hi, I’m Kim!

I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, an IBBFA-Certified Barre Instructor, a NASM-Certified Personal Trainer, and the Founder and Owner of Autonomy Therapy.

As a therapist, my experience has predominantly been focused on working with clients who struggle with eating disorders and body image issues. During the early days of my training, I was simultaneously involved in the fitness industry teaching barre and became a Certified Personal Trainer shortly thereafter. I've always loved exercise, and recognized the need for a space that moved away from diet culture influences.

My passion for physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing--and everything in between--led to the original establishment of Autonomy Movement; a dynamic and collaborative space intended to support clients in developing confidence and joy through informed education and intuitive movement. Over time, this innovative brand transitioned to focus more specifically on mental health services, and, ultimately, became Autonomy Therapy.

Thank you for investing in work that will undoubtedly make systemic change in the fitness industry. The Autonomy community will be by your side each step of the way!
