I help thoughtful people make choices that truly matter​​

About Kim

Kim Headshot with Frame

I’m Kim DeYoung, the Choice Coach, author of The Book of Choice, and host of The Voice of Choice. My zone of genius is helping thoughtful people make intentional choices that allow them to live more examined lives. By making conscious choices, they become who they want to be.

I treasure exploring the depth and nuance of other people’s choices. When clients, friends, and family feel stuck, I remind them that they have immense power to shape their future by making conscious and proactive choices.

Utilizing my Choice Mapping process, I engage in deep dive conversations with people of all ages and stages who are eager to discern what may be holding them back from doing what they want to do, as well as keen to draw inspiration from past choices to guide their future.

With my attentive and compassionate listening skills, combined with my intuitive inquiry style, I guide people through an individualized self-discovery process, unlocking their innate wisdom, to make empowered personal, professional and relationship choices.

While engaging in deep dive conversations, both privately and in groups, I offer a fresh perspective and new insights, revealing aspects of a choice that may have escaped attention.

What is Choice Mapping?

Mapping is a creative, self-discovery tool for delving deeply into the components of a choice.

Whether you’re facing a mundane decision or standing before a pivotal crossroads, Choice Mapping provides a framework for exploring a meaningful choice in greater depth. Mapping empowers you to find your way from where you are to where you want to be.

Through mapping, you’ll gain the clarity and confidence to make the choice that aligns with the person you aspire to be, forging the path that matters to you. Mapping unlocks the possibility to chart your own course, enabling you to design a life that’s uniquely satisfying,  purposeful and thoughtful.

The Book of Choice teaches you how to independently navigate a choice through mapping. If you’d like more support, you can have a private experience with me.

My Clients Get Stuck On...

Feeling Overwhelmed

Decision Fatigue

The Weight of Shame

The mere thought of committing to a particular path leaves you feeling overwhelmed, and potentially paralyzed. 

Perhaps the burden of decision fatigue is leaving you mentally and emotionally exhausted, unable to think clearly.

You may be carrying the weight of regret or shame from previous choices, further preventing you from moving forward.

Regardless of the underlying cause, when you feel like a passenger in your own life, you begin to feel out of control to steer yourself in the direction you desire.

  • Are you putting off making a looming choice because you’re feeling anxious, indecisive and confused?
  • Or do you want to leave what’s comfortable for the unknown, but are worried about making the wrong choice and missing out on opportunities?
  • Maybe you’re struggling to trust your own intuition, but lack the confidence to trust that you’ll make the right choice.

My Clients Get Excited About...

How You Can Work with Me

Now, more than ever, we want to align our livesboth professionally and personally, around what matters most. But, making the right choices to make that happen can be hard.

During a Choice Mapping experience, I’ll guide you in assessing why your choices matter, what could hold you back and what’s possible. My unique approach provides a safe, open and inquisitive space that enables you to explore what may be unseen and untapped.

While exploring the complexity and subtleties of your choice, we’ll observe an unaccessed world that exists below the surface of your everyday life. In our concentrated connection time, following the lead of your answers, I mine for and tap into thoughts and insights often forgotten or disregarded. As you share your answers, my intuition guides my questions to unearth more, allowing our conversations to meander and delve deeper. Some thoughts never shared, once voiced, allow for new connections and observations to be made.

I’ll support you with empathy, deep listening and a commitment to helping you develop your potential.

At the heart of my work lies my dedication to supporting your personal and professional growth. I work collaboratively with you to help unlock your full potential and achieve your goals, whether it’s navigating a challenging decision or creating a more fulfilling life. With practical tools and guidance, I help you take meaningful action to live your best life.
