When you’re stuck in a spinning loop of anxiety, grief, and overwhelm, all you want to do is hide.
But you can’t, of course, because you demand a lot of yourself and have so many people depending on you.
So you muddle on the best you can.
I see you.
If you’re anything like me, you’re a compassionate, socially & environmentally conscious, smart, nature-loving woman. You built your life around being easy to get along with. You are selfless, and helpful.
Your reputation is book-ended on performing under pressure and managing on a shoestring. You hide your vulnerable bits under a thick armor of humor, always being there for everyone else, and your general competence.
For a long time these strategies worked.
You were liked. Respected.
You built a career. A home. Maybe even both.
You were happy.
Content at least.
But one day, something happened.
Maybe it came in the form of a disruption –small or large.
Divorce. A lay-off.
Death of a loved one.
Health issues. An injury.
Or maybe it was a promotion.
Or just a small whisper of restlessness.
A call to adventure. Or a deep need for more meaning and purpose.
Whatever “it” was, you can’t go back. The world has changed. You have too.
And you need new tools.
Who are you?
You’re intrigued by magick and mystery and matters of the soul, but along with your curiosity comes caution in placing your trust in “woo woo” practices, especially when it comes to making big decisions about your life.
In fact, when it comes to big matters, you historically use logic and plain old common sense.
But right now the world feels so complex and broken that every choice seems to defy the normal principles of reasoning.
You lie awake at night, worrying about everything!
Lately, you feel alone even though you have good friends.
You feel depleted in spite of your best efforts to live a healthy, well-balanced life.
You feel restless and so on edge that even a good workout doesn’t shake it loose.
You find yourself longing for more.
And then feeling guilty that you don’t simply appreciate what you have.
Plus, you’re afraid of blowing up what you have now in pursuit of a dream that you can’t even define.
That’s where I come in.
I can show you another way.
The Way of Soul
And in this way, I will guide you back to your Truest Self. Your Sacred Self. Your Magickal Self. Your WHOLE self.
I will help you feel seen. Heard. Understood. Beautiful. Funny. At ease in your own skin.
I will help you find beauty, joy, and meaning in your ordinary life.
A life you belong to and LOVE … even when it’s messy and hard.
You don’t have to wait until the stars align, your prince arrives, or your fairy godmother Magicks you a dress … you can have a life you love now.
A life that brings you alive.
Who am I?
I’m Kristin. I’ve been in your shoes.
I’ve also helped hundreds of women between the ages of 18 & 82
- Get the ground back under her feet quickly & re-regulate her nervous system
- Get clarity –on who she is, what she wants, where she belongs, & which next steps to take
- Increase her sense of centeredness, her energy, and her personal power
- Connect with her inner wisdom so she believes in her capabilities, moves through the world with grace, makes choices with ease, and has a bigger impact on the causes she cares about most.
What do I do?
You know how the past few years have been crazy?
Between the pandemic, politics, and tragedy everywhere you look?
That’s NOT including all the day-to-day stress in your OWN life! Right?
And you know how we all have the tendency to numb or distract ourselves from feeling our hard feelings?
What you might not know is that stuffing down your feelings is worse for you than smoking and unhealthier than diabetes.
These stuffed emotions sneak back in as:
- Physical Pain
- And more
In fact, anxiety is such an epidemic in our post-modern world that the surgeon general recently advised doctors to screen for it in all patients under 65!
Also, you might not know that:
- 15% of anxiety and depression come from unresolved grief
- 70% of the US population have experienced a psychosocial trauma in their lifetime, and 30% of those have experienced more than one
- By definition, if your nervous system is in a dysregulated state –and it is, anytime you experience a hard emotion like anger, grief, rage, depression, anxiety, fear– it’s impossible to access the full capacity of your reasoning brain!!!
So I start all my work by teaching simple but powerful tools that help you honor your emotions and regulate your nervous system in-the-moment and on-the-fly, so not only can you access your reason and logic when you need it, but also so you can live a more joyful and healthy life.
Then I help you get clarity. On who you are, what you want, where you belong, which steps to take next, and begin your journey back to wholeness.

More about me:
I have over ten years of coaching, leadership consulting, team building and crisis intervention experience and 20+ years of multi-industry and multi-division business leadership in startups, non-profits and established companies.
I spent my formulative years immersed in nature. First in our small backyard garden in CA, and then —from the age of six— along the shores of Lake Crescent inside Olympic National Park. My life was shaped by the sight, sound, touch, smell and taste of woods, mountains and water —and the critters who made those places their home.
I wrote my first story at the age of six, and fell in love with fiction and all the expressive arts. I grew up on fairy tales —Swedish, Grimm’s, & Irish alongside Disney— & earned my undergrad degree in creative writing. The myths, archetypes and constructs of story —particularly the heroine’s journey— deepen my work and my life.
As an adult, I became fascinated with neuroscience, and the psychosocial, physiological and spiritual impact of emotions, soul craft & nature on Post-traumatic growth, transformation, and belonging. I blend these tools and other eclectic interests to help my clients get lasting results.
I believe we need generative tools to reawaken our souls, connect with the souls of the more-than-human world & collectively recreate the possibility of wholeness —in ourselves and in the world.
This is my passion.
