After co-authoring with Theo on the best-selling book, 'Conversations with a Rattlesnake', Kim and Theo have been busy visiting schools, prisons, companies and non-profit groups around the globe, bringing their unique approach to trauma-informed education and learning.
Kim Barthel is a one-of-a-kind, highly sought-after speaker and therapist, and solver of unique mental health mysteries. She actively teaches around the world in the fields of relational trauma, attachment theory and sensory processing. As an occupational therapist, she blends her own brand of intuitive inquiry with cutting-edge developments in neuroscience to help people develop awareness, compassion and healthy relationships.
In Winnipeg, Barthel pioneered the first private pediatric multi-disciplinary therapy clinic in Western Canada, and she's worked in the trenches with high-risk youth. She has developed mental health services for children in Canada's Arctic, and provided trauma fieldwork training in Eastern Europe, New Orleans and the Middle East.
For Barthel, her collaboration with Fleury is not a traditional therapist/client relationship; it's encouraging a level of healthy conversation previously unheard of her in career.Support the show (https://www.theofleury.life/contact-us)
