Need to make changes in your career or life, but not sure what those changes should be? Are you feeling stuck, lost or generally unsatisfied but not sure why or how to fix it?  Well, you're in luck because as a holistic career coach for the past 11 years that's exactly what I've been helping folks of all ages, genders and backgrounds do!

Below you will find some information about what that might look like.  I take a very holistic approach to my coaching so whether you are looking specifically for career coaching or life coaching, chances are we'll touch on both because at the end of the day you are a whole person who operates in both realms.

Scroll down for all the details, as well as some quotes from folks I've worked with, and several PGGs that talk about what I do and how I do it.  It needs a major overhaul, but you can always also check out my website at for more info in addition to my weekly email blasts and social media sites.

No matter who you are or where you are at in your life, this is a great opportunity to check in, get a tune up and do what you can to move yourself further along the path of being the best YOU you can be.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or set up a brief chat to see if it's a right fit for us to work together. Thanks very much for your interest - I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Regardless of where you are at on your career/life path, Kristina will put things in perspective, help you understand the cycle you are in and offer the clarity, balance and direction needed to get you unstuck and moving forward in your career and life.

Kristina's Essential Self Process is a holistic and personal-growth oriented approach to coaching that meets you wherever you are, and takes all aspects of your life, as well as past and current circumstances, into consideration in order to formulate the direction you should be headed, and provides the guidance, resources and support required to get there.  

Kristina's clients achieve long-term, break-through success . She actively listens to their situation with understanding, and without judgment. She encourages her clients to creatively and independently problem-solve by asking them to make conscious, small choices to start. As a result of this, clients learn to stand on their own, think for themselves, and believe in their own abilities to effect change and enable larger life decisions.
"Since I last spoke with you, I've had some pretty dramatic changes - New Job, a Big Move, Healthy Dating Relationship. It's been pretty awesome. Emotionally, I've done a 180, and my life is certainly a reflection of that. My last session with you spurred a lot of wonderful life changes. " ~ Palanda B.
"Kristina gave me permission to be myself!  I can say no other person has empowered me in that way as much as she has - and I am TRULY forever grateful for that.."  
~ Cherise R.
"I can honestly say that speaking to you was one of the most important events in my life. It is almost unbelievable how a 2-hour conversation can have that effect." 
~ Bozhanka V.

I gained valuable tools and productive habits from this experience. More importantly, I gained CLARITY as a result of "doing the work" that Kristina recommended. She was easy to talk to (down-to-earth), encouraging and intuitive. She did a great job at helping me identify which obstacles stood in the way, what needed shifting, what didn't, and how to "get to the core" or the root of the problem... I wholeheartedly recommend her!  ~ Ivan S.   
What I found most appealing, and what sets Kristina apart from other career coaches, is her emphasis on your "whole picture." She considers everything you were exposed to or experienced, how that ties into your life's goals and how to find the best path forward from there
. Talking with Kristina made sense of all the ideas and confusion running around in my head.  The initial session further confirmed the direction I want to go in and visualize where I want to be; doing her homework helped me become more confident in owning what my gut is telling me and fueled my passion to pursue what I know deep down is right for me. As a result of working with Kristina, I now have the tools, motivation and perspective to create my dream career and life . Because of her insights and expertise, I am the happiest and most content I've ever been and found an incredible peace of mind   ~ Alyssa C

flower She is incredibly perceptive and experienced and very quickly is able to access the deeper stuff. One of her skills is that get the chance to see yourself through Kristina's eyes, and in that way, you can see your gifts and talents in a way that doesn't feel ego-centered; talking with Kristina for just one hour gave me a whole new perspective of myself as a professional and the unique offerings I have to share with the world. I have NEVER, and remember I am 40 and have multiple coaches in my life - I have NEVER felt the kind of authentic confidence and empowerment as I have since our last session .  ~ Karen M.
In a short amount of time Kristina was able to assess my situation, taking into consideration all of my personal and professional experiences, needs and desires, and gave me the clarity and inspiration to take the actions necessary to obtain my dream job and lifestyle - for a pay increase of nearly 30%!  Without her keen insights and simple solutions  I would not have been motivated to make the changes that have resulted in creating this new and improved life for myself and my family.   I am incredibly grateful for her expertise and holistic approach, and highly recommend her to anyone who is stuck and wants to take their career to a more fulfilling and abundant place!  ~ Linda F.
