Kim M. Seidel, Parenting Expert & Consultant

Kim M. Seidel

Parenting Expert & Consultant

Kim has witnessed trauma from nearly every perspective: as a mother, an adopted child, adoptive parent, relative caregiver, and a professional counselor for over 20 years. She understands that children with challenging stories are different, almost alien-like sometimes. Kim is a self-proclaimed “alien” and she understands that they require a different type of parenting and educational approach. Kim will help you learn exactly what your child and students need from you, so that they heal, learn and thrive in your care.


Kim has dedicated her life to train and serve human services professionals, educators, and foster/adoptive/biological parents in a love based parenting paradigm and The Stress Model by Bryan Post. Kim has found this approach combined with her own experiences to be very effective both personally and professionally in preserving foster/adoptive placements, creating stronger connections within biological families, as well as helping educators to connect with students in their classrooms that present with major behavioral concerns.
