You possess a unique combination of talents, experience and passion to offer the world.

    Your job is to figure out how to best use them in your personal and/or professional life.

    It's a win-win. You're happier and we get the gifts of your Essential Self.

    My job is to help you to discover, express and realize all of the above!


    Working with Kristina helps you figure out who you are and what you are supposed to be doing with your life no matter what stage of your career you are in.


    Developing as a whole, happy and fulfilled human being in harmony with your priorities and values, along with the right mindset, allows you to bring your best self to any situation and naturally increases your confidence, creativity and interpersonal skills.


    With more than 15 years as a professional coach, Kristina can identify and address barriers to your success, eliminating internal and external obstacles in order to achieve optimal performance and advance career goals, as well as experience a more pleasant working environment and increase your level of productivity and job satisfaction.


    Kristina is more than a career coach - she's incredibly intuitive and can really help you realign your life. ~ Megan S.




    As a result of working with Kristina you will gain:


    • Kristina looks at your "whole picture," considers everything you've experienced and connects the dots to get a perspective of your life's story, themes and patterns you might not have seen before.
    • Kristina re-frames how you think about yourself and your current situation to help you feel comfortable with where you are as you work on moving toward a more authentic life.
    • Kristina helps you have confidence in yourself and own who you are and what you REALLY want, not who you think you should be or what you should do.


    • Kristina helps you understand what balance means for you at this crossroads in your career and life.
    • Kristina helps to mitigate and alleviate stress, frustration or even despair you might have about your situation and prospects moving forward.
    • Kristina's process is mostly an internal one.  By working on your inner self you'll experience more balance in your external world and  create the conditions to attract, recognize or design the opportunities you desire.



    • Kristina can make sense of all the ideas and confusion running around in your head and figure out a path forward.
    • Kristina helps you determine what the right next steps are for you -taking all of your circumstances and goals into consideration and where you are in your personal growth process
    • Once you know where you're going Kristina provides a variety of guidance, resources and support to help get you there.
  • The Bottom Line

    If you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed or lost sometimes all you have to do is first admit to yourself that you need, and then ask for, help.


    As a holistic career coach for more than a decade, Kristina has helped hundreds of folks through various points in their lives get to the root of their challenge or dissatisfaction and then provide solutions to help overcome it.


    Kristina is more than a career coach. She changed my life... I have spoken to a number of professionals and career coaches, but Kristina is the one who truly helped me get unstuck and re-evaluate my values. Her recommendations were vital and enabled me to reorient my life.

    ~ Esther J.

    In Other Words

    Some analogies to help describe what Kristina does...

    Life Chiropractor

    Whatever is out of whack in your personal or professional life, Kristina can put back in alignment .

    Surgeon/Strong Medicine

    Kristina “diagnoses” where you're stuck and provides a "prescription" for what's ailing you, or uses an "x-ray" to get to the root of your blocks and bring them to light by digging them out and re-framing if necessary.


    Kristina reflects back to you things you already know about yourself, and affirms what you truly desire.


    Not sure if you need a therapist, life coach or career coach?

    Please note I am not certified or licensed in anything but people have told me I've saved them thousands of dollars in therapy!

  • Essential Self Consultations: How It Works

    Your time and energy is your most precious resource, and since work is what takes up the majority of your time and energy, how you use those resources is the most important decision you can make. This is why my approach is a completely holistic one and will lead to a sense of inner peace, calm and fulfillment.

    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. 

    Pre-Coaching Questionnaire

    Once you've booked your package you'll receive a confirmation email that includes a pre-coaching questionnaire that you would return prior to our session. Answering not only provides background information, but also is part of the self-reflective process.


    Two Hour Session

    The initial two-hour session takes place via phone, Zoom/Skype or in-person if you're in the NYC area. It is recommended that you are rested and well-fed prior to the session and not have anything scheduled immediately after. All you'll need for the session is a journal or notebook to take notes and an open mind!




    After the session you will receive a summary of our session along with customized "homework" for you to work on over the next several weeks. You'll also have at least two email exchanges for support and guidance in the interim.



    Approximately 4-6 weeks after the initial session you'll have a one-hour follow-up call to check in on your progress. For some folks, that's all you'll need to get you on the right track in your career and life. Others might need additional sessions which are available in more robust packages.

    What Coaching Clients Are Saying

    I've coached hundreds of men and women from every age, background and industry over the past 15+ years and find it's easier to let some of my past clients describe how you can benefit from my support and guidance in your career and life:


    "If you're looking for some compassionate candor and a dose of tough love, Kristina is the coach for you. She really takes the time to get to know you, ask good questions, and guide you based on your values, not just what might look good on paper. Her style is very holistic, so she brings a lot of value by being able to challenge some of your assumptions about yourself and push you to pursue your career goals from an angle you may have not considered previously. I came into this really lacking clarity and walked away with a sense of relief. Can't recommend her enough." ~ Kevin R., HR and Veteran

    Legal Services

    What she helped me realize was that the skills I'd developed in my previous jobs - which I felt were totally unrelated - actually complemented each other in ways I'd never thought of on my own. She helped me understand how my experiences related to each other and could integrate into the bigger picture of a career.

    International Development

    Kristina has an uncanny capacity of listening to your story and understanding your issue. I thought that my case was too unique and unusual and that it would take months of counselling to get a coach to understand my issues, but Kristina managed to get it in a 90 minute session - really impressive! She quickly picked up on the important bits and suggested a path forward that was refreshing and felt right.

    Academia & Entrepreneurship

    Kristina is excellent at what she does, she is very natural and has an easy-going approach which produces amazing results. Kristina helped me immensely at a turning point in my life and career. Her insightful questions and comments helped me make important life-changing decisions. The coaching session with Kristina, in particular the first essential self consultation, is one of the most important conversations I have ever had.

    Marketing & Advertising

    Kristina patiently helped me to discover and embrace my true north. I was stuck in a past identity that blocked me from the person I wanted to become. I recommend her to everyone ready and willing to make lasting and holistic changes toward their true passions...I felt enlivened, and like a new person after our conversation, her detailed action steps ensured that I would achieve anything I want.

    Digital Production

    After a stressful move, a seemingly endless job hunt, and a reassessment of what I really wanted to do with my career, one call with Kristina was all it took to help get myself back on track. Her guidance and support that followed as I made the confusing and stressful transition from post-college to the "real world" was very much appreciated, too.

    Project Management

    Kristina really does have this holistic approach to it and tries to capture your life's context and understand the big picture. From there she was able to break it down for me and unveil to me what's been going on. She was able to offer me another perspective and frame to work with that I would not have thought of myself. And from there I felt very empowered and have been able to achieve a lot within just a month!

    Corporate Counsel

    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

    Real Estate

    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

    broken image



    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%! Her keen insights and simple solutions motivated me to make the changes necessary and resulted in creating this new and improved life for myself and my family.

    Kristina’s insights have had a huge impact on my career and my self-confidence. She planted this seed of truth in me that I knew I had to start tending to, and as a result I found my voice and am now on a path to leadership in my field.

    HR, Recruiting & Career Expert

    Kristina is an amazing coach and mentor...I’m always impressed by her intuitive nature, creative ideas, and insight to tap into the core. She is tremendously gifted and has the ability to unblock obstacles that perhaps we didn’t even know existed, as it’s sometimes most challenging to see situations clearly when you’re immersed in them.

    Production Services

    As soon as we met, things started to shift and I got both a new job in a new field and started singing, which were what Kristina said would and should happen. I am being challenged creatively and cognitively more than I have been in years.

    Financial Services

    Kristina helped me see clarity, which to this day, I still use and feel comforted by. I read the books she recommended and listened to her advice about not giving up and finding creative ways to fulfill my destiny. It's an understatement to say she has affected me in a positive way. After her consultation seven months later, with the help of her healing, I even ran another marathon and started a new promising career.

    Design Services

    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..

    Sales & Marketing

    She is incredibly perceptive, 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 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 felt the kind of authentic confidence and empowerment as I have since our last session.
