I'm a life coach who believes overwhelm is a simple problem to solve.

hey, I'm kristen

I started listening to podcasts, reading books from life coaches, and learning more about what it meant to be in control of my thoughts.

During that time, I was figuring out what I wanted to do with my life. I was doing many things at once, and that was the story I lived by. I was living in a constant state of overwhelm, was always late, felt resentful towards everyone around me, and spent my evenings drinking wine to relax.

But very few people knew that. If you didn't know, you'd think I was crushing it. It looked like I had it all together.

I began studying life coaching.

I had no idea I had any control over my thoughts. I thought for sure they were happening to me. I felt overwhelmed, stressed, and desperate, and believed it was all completely out of my control.

When the teacher said the words, "notice your thoughts in this pose", something clicked. Turns out, that teacher was also a life coach, and her simply saying those words set me on a completely new path.


My story really began in a yoga teacher training nearly ten years ago when the teacher told the class to notice our thoughts.

Solving for overwhelm meant solving for a lot of other issues going on. I wasn't overwhelmed because of my busy schedule.

There was more to it - I was busy trying to prove my worth by doing more, I wasn't willing to ask for help because I believed I should be able to handle it all, and I was resentful towards the very people I wasn't being totally honest with.

It's always about more than the overwhelm. What coaching does is uncover what's really going on, and solve for that.

After I gained 20 pounds and ended up with a face full of breakouts, I knew I needed to deal with the overwhelm. I tried solving it externally, but it just wasn't working.

MAYBE THE MOST IMPORTANT "PERSON" IN MY LIFE

You want to feel calm, at ease, grounded, in control, and confident. That's exactly how I wanted to feel too, and now I do. This is what I teach my clients to do and it's absolutely possible for you too.

This is why I help women with overwhelm. I know what it feels like to be where you are, and I know the freedom on the other side of overwhelm.

I let go of resentment, I learned what to say no to, and I started living my life without guilt. I began feeling better, and once I felt better internally, my external world began to shift. I lost the 20 pounds and my skin cleared up. Even more importantly, I began to genuinely love my life. Every single part of it.

When I dealt with the issues underneath the overwhelm, my entire life changed.
