My goal is to help great people serve and lead in the world with their unique skills, talents, and creative expressions. I know what happens out there and it’s bad! Really, really bad! I’ve seen the pain and consequences that stress, overwhelm, fear, uncertainties, doubts, and lack of clarity have on people. It saddens me, because I’ve watched so many amazing and talented people give themselves to a lives and careers that suck the life force right out of them–until they just cannot take it anymore. We deserve to live joyful, peaceful, and content lives, to be thriving in our highest potential, surrounded by great people with similar values and relationships that serve us well, but I have found that many just don’t know how to do it, are stuck trying to figure out the hows, and have been led to believe that suffering is just a way of life. It doesn’t have to be that way.

“When I first went to see Kristen, I was in one of the most unhappy periods of my life. I did not know what goals I wanted to pursue with my career, or how to balance and prioritize my various life goals. Kristen helped me to introspect deeply and to really figure out what was most important to me in life. She was very encouraging and helped me to feel good about myself, to feel cheerful in the face of adversity, and to enjoy the present in spite of concerns about the future. I left every session feeling better than I had felt coming in, and after just a few sessions, I felt like I had a much better idea of what I wanted out of life and how to achieve it. Kristen is a very good listener, and she helped me to figure out what was really important to me by listening carefully to my scattered thoughts and helping me to organize them. Unlike another therapist whom I have worked with, I did not feel that Kristen was imposing any of her beliefs or values on me. Rather, she helped me to look inside myself better and provided me with psychological tools and technical expertise to deal with my challenges. She was full of practical ideas for concrete steps that I could take to understand myself and my options in life better. I recommend Kristen enthusiastically and without reservations to anybody who is struggling with their career goals or their path in life.” -University Professor, New York

I just wanted I extend my gratitude for your helpful advice.” -Health and Wellness Entrepreneur, Latin America

 

“Kristen has been instrumental in getting my mindset right. When I left my job and made a tough career transition while starting my M.B.A, meeting with Kristen was something I actually began to look forward to. It was a relaxing environment the minute we first met and there  was a good vibe/aura to all the meetings. The time flexibility she provides was also very helpful because as you can imagine my schedule was a very busy one just like many others. Kristen not only has great tips and advice to help everyone with their issues/struggles, she has great connections to important people and resources such as resume writers and certain department heads. I will most certainly recommend other clients to her as a result of seeing her work as she has armed me with the tools to become successful.” –Financial and Technology Professional / MBA Student, Delray Beach, FL
