Hi, I'm Kristine
At the start of 2018, I came to a tipping point. I was working 40 hours a week at a stressful, burdensome job. I came home burned out, frazzled, and depleted with nothing left to give my family. I yelled at my kids, made rude comments to my husband, and isolated myself from my friends. I felt disoriented, restless, and stuck. Something had to change but I didn't know what or how to change it. I had lost sight of who I was and what I wanted for my life.
BUT HERE'S THE TRUTH.
I didn't lose myself because I became a mom or because I worked in a corporate job for too long. I lost myself because I stopped listening to my heart. Everything I did was filtered through the left side of my brain. Every decision I made was based on what I thought I should be doing.
I STOPPED TRUSTING MYSELF.
I stopped believing I held all the answers I needed.
When I started tuning into my heart again, I found peace and freedom, a renewed energy and excitement, and joy in every area of my life.
I FELT REVIVED.
That's what I want for you, too.
I want you to start living the life you were meant to live. Full of joy, meaning, and purpose. A life you're excited to wake up to.
But you can only do that if you start listening to your heart.
I know, I know. You're starting to hear that famous 80s love ballad playing in the background. I promise not to spout cheesy romance songs to you but Roxette is on to something. When you tune into your heart, you find the wisdom, direction, and guidance you need to take action and move forward.
That's why I'm here. That's why I do what I do.
I help you get out of your head and into your heart so you can REVIVE YOUR LIFE and take action on your dreams.
I Believe That...
Anything worth doing in life requires you to push past your fear and take a risk
Our desires give us LIFE and enjoying this life is spiritual gratitude
Worthiness is your birthright
Fear and excitement are two sides of the same coin
You never run out of chances to pursue your dreams
You have the power to change your life
I'm a licensed therapist and Certified Life Coach and I've been working in mental health for over 15 years. I earned my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northwestern University, one of the top training programs in the country, and I've been teaching, training, and supervising for over a decade.
I love writing, planning, reading, and learning.
I have two little girls, Ava and Emmie, who both exhaust and exhilarate me. The four of us (my husband being the 4th member of our family) live in Northern Indiana, where my husband grew up and where our extended family lives. We traded the busy streets of Chicago for the cornfields of Indiana just before we had our oldest daughter.
I'm a born and raised California girl who will always feel at home by the sea. I grew up in the Bay Area, went to college in Santa Barbara, and spent time in Pasadena before packing up my Corolla and driving across the country to attend graduate school in Chicago. I've been in the Midwest for just over 10 years and, while I love it here, I dream of one day returning to the coast.
