Recently my husband was diagnosed with cancer. You were very helpful to us with your medical knowledge, helping us understand what the doctor was saying and understanding our options. Thank you for facilitating our difficult discussions about treatment options and for helping us communicate the process and our wishes to our friends and family. It was a relief to have knowledge, care, and compassion during this difficult time. We are at peace.
I was at my darkest moment. A moment where I could not see hope for the future. The pain that I experienced for well over 10 years was too great to comprehend. Take that pain and put it together with my new situation and I was on the verge of collapsing. I always felt I was mentally strong enough to handle any situation, I was proven wrong. I decided to reach out to someone who came highly recommended, Kim Best. It was one of the best decision I ever made in my life. Her ability not only to understand the situation but also to provide me actionable insight was tremendous. I felt like I could at least take the next step. She has a tremendous warmth and compassion to her and I continued to be impressed with her perspective on my ever changing situation and always guide me through it with posing to me just the question I needed to consider. I have walked away from every one of our sessions with a reassurance, a peace that I can make the best decision for the moment and as I learn new techniques that I can implement immediately I feel I can now embrace these challenges, enjoy this growth and have the proper mindset to be successful each day.
I highly recommend you invest some time with Kim, you will unquestionable see a remarkable difference.

"My husband and I are facing some huge life changes. ....Kim was able to zero in on exactly how to help us! She has a God-given gift of discernment, communication and empathy, but her humility outshines them all and opens the road to REAL HEALING. Her experience, confidence, professionalism, and caring spirit come together to maker her the perfect conflict manager. She really connected with my husband and has given us the resources and guidance to help us navigate our touch challenges. I would refer ANYONE (or couple) who need help in life's crazy journey. ***You will not be disappointed!!!***
Over the past year I have been dealing with a very difficult situation in my personal life. I sought the help of a different professional mediator to help resolve the issues. Unfortunately, this mediator was ineffective and actually made the situation worse. Kim Best was recommended to me by a friend to help me navigate both the personal conflict and the best way to deal with the other mediator. Kim was very insightful from the very beginning. She quickly assessed and understood the situation and provided helpful instruction and compassionate critique of my communication to make it more effective. Kim challenged me to understand what I really wanted to happen in the situation and how to pursue that effectively. She sharpened my communication, empowered me to act in confidence, and helped me understand the right and wrong of this situation. Kim was also an effective sounding board for my interactions with the other mediator enabling me to interact efficiently based on her insights as a mediator. Kim is supportive, encouraging, and empathetic, honest, and insightful. She has helped to make a very stressful and difficult situation easier to deal with and her experience ultimately saved me a lot of wasted time, effort, and money.
“One thing that stuck with me from our times together was to remain true to what I thought was right and to not act/fail to act out of fear. Remain true, do what is right, and be willing to accept the outcome. It is still sometimes a challenge, mostly because I’m not always sure what is the right thing to do, but I have been at rest in the fact that…... that I am seeking the best interest of the kids, that my motives (being checked by friends who I am accountable to) are correct, and the rest is in God’s hands – it’s not in my control to manipulate the outcome.
So, thank you for empowering me with that very important tool.”
I cannot say enough about how impressed I am with Kim. Our office was on the brink of having an emotionally and financially costly breakup of what had been a stable environment. She stepped in with her impartial, objective approach and met with all parties involved in this complex conflict. She was skillfully able to bring to light the whole story regarding the situation and make us a better workplace and team than we were before our office conflict even began.
Kim is the most advanced mediator on our team and does possess a very high level of knowledge in dispute resolution. She currently handles some of the most complex cases we have here at the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office. She is ALWAYS focused on a resolution. She has a very unique and professional skill set that helps other parties feel more relaxed, at ease, and open to resolving high conflict situations. Kim has resolved all the cases that have been assigned to her. I can't think of one that has been unresolved. Kim is the most fair and transparent individual on our team. She is loyal, honest, and committed. Although I have not personally dealt with her billing practices, I have heard nothing but positive feedback about her with other parties that have worked with her in our office.
