Owner, Conscious Chimera
Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.
Today’s special guest is Kimberly Mascaro. She is a somatic psychologist, licensed psychotherapist, and the owner of Conscious Chimera, which is based in Nevada City, California.

“All of the [techniques] we’re talking about can seem like a lot for some, but it really did arise organically in that I didn’t just dive into all these things at once. This has been over a 20 year journey for me. […] Trust the journey. Know that things can organically emerge and spontaneously arise. Stay open to the mystery of all of this.”
