I was going back and forth on these big decisions, and I just couldn't gain clarity on the way I wanted to go. It was literally making me sick, that I was so stressed out. I was feeling so overwhelmed by all the decisions, and after talking to Kirsten for the first time, I learned I had very little Self-Trust, in my ability to make this decision and not royally mess up my life. Now, I'm able to see decisions and life choices in an easier way: I'm thinking of them as small decisions that I'm making on a daily basis, and with the information that I have. And I'm not stressing out about those decisions that are two weeks away, or even tomorrow. I have self-trust now, and the ability to make the decisions when they come along, and not stress out about them before. What I think I'm proudest of is changing my reaction to situations and things outside of my control. My reactions, and the length of time it would take me to process those emotions - that time is cut into an eighth! I used to spiral for weeks over something someone said to me, or something I didn't feel was fair. And now I know that I actually have the power to just feel that that emotion - because I'm human, as Kirsten always reminds us - that those emotions are real, and we need to feel them. But they don't have to stay and be a constant thing in your body after they've happened. Investing in coaching was completely worth it, because now I can live my life. There are a lot of big things happening in my life this year, but it's not overwhelming at all! I have the power to make my life what I want it to be - and I actually, truly believe that now. I think that, in itself, is just earth-shattering. Going through life thinking you don't have control over whether you're happy or not? That's terrible!
Over the last few months, I have witnessed and experienced a huge shift in my mindset and personal growth whilst working with Kirsten. From our initial consultation call, I knew her style, enthusiasm, and passion for coaching others, was exactly what I was seeking. Although I came in with one specific focus, the breadth of topics we discussed astonished me. This is a testament to her incredible listening and synthesizing skills, and especially (big ups for this ) the EXCELLENT questions she asked to help me dig deep. And also, she provides an ongoing online log that recaps your sessions so you can always refer back to your discoveries and action plan. I truly felt that our sessions were tailored to me and my needs, and all the tools and suggestions she offered only helped reinforce new beliefs and grow out of others. It truly is a practice. I highly, highly recommend Kirsten.
Kirsten came highly recommended to me by a couple of professional creatives and friends, and I am so glad I pursued working with her. Over the past six months I have gained clarity and made progress towards goals that I had been struggling to achieve on my own for years. Working with her fills me with positive mental food, good habits that are continually reinforced, and also a meticulously documented archive of resources to which I return frequently. The benefits are tangible in my career, relationship, health and freedom from old unhelpful habits. This was my first experience with coaching, and as someone who has done traditional therapy, I love working in this mode that is grounded in concrete goals, actions and results. Kirsten is highly skilled, an absolute delight and leads me to celebrate, enjoy, expand and fully participate on my own team.

About me

I use science-based tools & positive psychology practices to help do meaningful work that matters AND feel calm & confident in their day-to-day.

Indecision, doubt, procrastination, overwhelm - these were my "get in your own way" tactics too.

I'll teach you pain-free productivity so you can make tangible progress and pursue your highest potential more JOYFULLY and sustainably!

My Philosophy of Care

My philosophy is that you already have everything you need to feel and achieve what you want. Which means in order to get what you want, you don't have to become a different person (phewf!). You have a human brain, which is designed to function largely on habits, so we just update what isn't serving you anymore.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

The free hour-long consult is a powerful, clarifying conversation (and fun). We talk about what you want in the spirit of pure possibility (as if it makes total sense to plan on making your goals a reality!). We also look objectively at all the limitations and challenges your brain wants to focus on when it comes to these goals. By the end, you'll have a crystal clear picture of where you are, where you want to go, and the real (but manageable) work involved in getting you there.

My Inspiration

I put my Yale master's degree to work in my former career of theater stage management for over ten years. That's where I became an expert in project planning & implementation, which I use with clients today to map out & execute their goals. Through general humaning, I ALSO grew expertise in overwhelm, indecision and self-doubt! When therapy wasn't answering my questions about how to feel better now and what to do next, I turned to coaching.
