Hi, I’m Kristin
I am a coach and consultant for healing arts practitioners, coaches, artists, and soulful entrepreneurs, particularly if you are sensitive, introverted, or spiritually-oriented. I can help you get over the “ick” factor when it comes to marketing your business and connecting with your ideal clients. I work with you on establishing alignment at every level (spiritual, mental, emotional, energetic, and physical) so you can connect with your people from a deeply connected, clear, and confident place. I love looking for the blocks at all levels that get in the way and helping you remove them one at a time.
One of my specialties is that I am a natural translator–among mind, body and business. After having spent years in the business world, managing multi-million dollar projects for Fortune 100 companies and earning two masters degrees in business, I “get” business. I speak the language, and I can tell you what you need to know in practical and palatable terms. And as a healer and yoga instructor myself, I also speak “woo woo” and can help you translate your vision and message into clear terms that attract your ideal clients.
I believe that you have amazing gifts to share with the world and you have the right to live abundantly while doing so. I think that working on your business is a spiritual endeavor that requires deep practice to align your unique gifts, your vision of service and your ability to take inspired action. Most of all, it requires letting go of layers of old habits and stories so you can get and stay connected with your intrinsic worth.
What helps me most of all in my work with clients is my own journey of learning to “own” my gifts and worth and to overcome my inner conflict between longing to be seen and, at the same time, wanting to hide under a rock. Despite my knowledge and experience in business, I struggled for years to set up my own practice, and I can deeply relate to the “ick” factor. In fact, let’s just get real here: I used to hate business, and I thought I had to be someone I wasn’t to be successful and make money. I have done a great deal of inner work to heal my relationship with business and overcome my own fears of “getting out there.” My business has finally started to flow, and now I can teach you the strategies that have worked for me in spite of myself.
- I am fascinated by the mind/body connection. I believe that connecting with the body in the present moment provides a direct line of communication to the soul.
- Yoga and meditation are my anchors.
- My family is my rock. My husband and daughters inspire me to be a better person; my sister is my best friend.
- I am on a life-long quest for authenticity. I am totally energized by deep conversations about the real, meaningful stuff and couldn’t care less about small talk.
- I love learning and I am 100% committed to my own personal growth and development. That means that if you have comments or questions or want to point something out to me, please be my guest.
