About Kim

I am an Intuitive Counselor with over 30 years of experience. Drawing from my background in health care, I take a practical approach to bringing about self-empowerment and helping people heal their lives, bodies, emotions, and spirit.


Kim Illig, Intuitive Counselor

Kim Illig – Certified Intuitive Counselor

In less than two hours a week, you can transform your life. I can’t do it for you, but I can help you uncover the truth about your inner self, safely and consciously, and help you move forward into more joy and freedom. Integrating intuitive and spiritual health into your routine (just as you might regularly go to the gym for your physical health) is a transformative process for the mind, body and spirit.

By incorporating my most current training as a Certified Intuitive Counselor (through Drs. Carolyn Myss’ and Norm Shealy’s American Board of Scientific Medical Intuition – ABSMI) with my past trainings as a Hellerwork Practitioner and a licensed nurse, I bring an educational and healing experience to a wide variety of individuals and groups. The approach I use involves a deep exploration of the self to develop concrete understandings and actions for moving forward. My desire and commitment is to empower people to feel passion in their lives, their work and their healing. Together, we learn, explore and heal in a safe and sacred container, moving away from feeling lost toward a life with peace of mind, open energy flow, and clarity about your calling and your goals.

From a young age, I was drawn to the workings of the mind and body, and I followed this passion to create my career in healing arts. In 1975, I became a nurse and worked in a busy orthopedic clinic where I learned extensively how the body moves and heals. In 1986, more interested than ever in body healing, I was introduced to Hellerwork. This practice allowed me to integrate structural bodywork, movement education, and self-awareness dialogue—all keys to living to our full potential. In 1999, my passion was focused on the Intuitive System. Realizing the validity of the unseen world, I studied with Drs. Caroline Myss and Norm Shealy to learn about encouraging people’s healing journey by making their personal energy management a top priority, and received my board certification from the American Board of Scientific Medical Intuition (ABSMI). I continue to draw from the teachings of Caroline Myss and Norm Shealy, as well as other healers and educators like Joseph Heller, Angeles Arrien, Starhawk, Christiane Northrup, and Carolyn Conger and Karla McLaren.

I have spent years learning the tools of transformation so that you can get the benefits of a focused and productive counseling relationship, whether in person, on the phone or through online counseling. Imagine feeling empowered to make clear choices about your physical, spiritual and emotional well-being. You can achieve it. I can be your guide, helping you find your own path. Together, we work towards creating a whole and fulfilling life for you.
