Wedding Officiant, Counselor, Minister
Hi, I’m Rev. Kimberly Cope. It was at the age of ten that my true calling and eventual vocation was revealed to me. While other kids were dreaming of becoming lawyers and astronauts, I was paying attention to the world around me and writing about it through prose and poetry.
Soon, adults and children alike were seeking me out to share their hopes, dreams, stories, and challenges. Because I endeavored to attend to those with whom I came in contact with both an interested and empathetic ear, it came very naturally for me to serve as the trusted space in which others felt seen, heard, and acknowledged. Since then, I’ve helped people from many walks of life not only to maintain their equilibrium while meeting the dizzying demands that life puts on us all; but, thrive in the midst of it.
My work is based on the philosophy that when our goals and actions are tied to uniquely personal values and beliefs with which we identify, greater levels of happiness and fulfillment are achieved. As a minister, writer, trainer, inspirational speaker and coach, my passion is to help others achieve a life so authentic, awesome, and amazing that they have to pinch themselves when they wake up in the morning!
I currently serve as an multifaith ‘minister without walls’ trained and ordained through One Spirit Learning Alliance.
I received my education through the Coaches Training Institute located in San Rafael, CA, and am a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF), and Spiritual Directors International (SDI). I’m certified in Communication: Human Relations through De Anza College in Cupertino, CA. My Premarital and Marital Counseling certification was earned through Prepare-Enrich (one of the world’s leading scientifically-proven relationship inventory and skill-building programs). I am also a certified PRINT coach and Infinite Possibilities Trailblazer.
On a personal note: I reside in beautiful Morgan Hill, CA. I celebrate life by sharing time with my two grown sons, as well as hiking, dancing, cooking, and writing. I serve as Ambassador for the Women’s Networking Alliance Chapter #130 and am a past member of the Board of Trustees for Conscious Living Center in Mountain View, CA. I serve as a spiritual counselor to those in need of compassionate care. My poetry and haiku have been published in Creative Thought Magazine and included in Sacred Heart Community Services donor collateral.
