You Have a LOT going on but no one to confide in
Do you need a shoulder to lean on?
Friends are great, but they’re biased. And your therapist wants to help you find a solution, which is great. But what if you just need to be SEEN. Heard. Cry. Or maybe troubleshoot, but hey – that’s your call.
You're not looking for a life coach, either
You’re looking for one-on-one sessions – not a 5-figure, 6-month commitment. You already have a therapist (if you need or even just want one). But, your goal isn’t to get “fixed,” & that’s her specialty.
You’re not looking for anyone to co-sign on the drama of your life or situation. Plus, you already have a best friend who does this.
You're sooooo not alone
You need someone to "hold space" for you
I get it – we ALL need this! How many times do you share what’s going on & get irked because some well-meaning soul offers solutions instead of their heart?
You yearn to be heard. To be honored. To be seen.
You’re a beautiful, whole person. YOU ARE NOT BROKEN. You don’t need to be “fixed.”
Maybe you want help troubleshooting a problem, but only if you ask for it.
Imagine being seen, heard, understood, loved
What if you could get that?
No matter what’s going on in your world, I’ll hear you. I’ll see you. My heart will open to you. And, if (and only if) you ask, I’ll help you work through your struggles. Because I’m a great problem-solver, but I only adopt this role when invited.

Holding Space with Kristi
It’s simple. We both show up. You spill about whatever’s going on. I’ll be the best listener you’ve ever known. I’ll dig just enough to find out what you need from me & this session, & we’ll go from there. It’s literally that simple!
What you'll get
We’ll meet via whatever video messaging platform works best (FaceTime, Skype, Google, Zoom, etc.). You’ll talk. I’ll find out what you need from me & then I’ll show up for you in whatever way you need. Maybe you want my wisdom. Maybe you just want to be heard & seen. Maybe you need compassion or empathy or love and nothing more. Whatever, it’ll be very fluid.
You’re welcome to let me know in advance if your goal is to pick my brain, as that may make our time a bit more efficient.
Is Holding Space Right for me?

Meet Your Holding space Goddess
Hey, I'm Kristi
I worked with a mentor weekly for seven years. She held space for me. She saw me, heard me, cried with me, celebrated with me. She didn’t see me as broken. She helped me by listening, sharing her experience, strength, & hope, & (sometimes) giving me homework.
This is what I know & offer.
You've got questions? I have answers!
The purpose of Holding Space isn’t necessarily to guide you into having breakthroughs or massively change your life (if that’s what you want, let me know when prompted after you click the “sign up” button). It’s to make you feel seen, heard, honored, loved, & pretty much everything you’re probably not going to get when you spill to your bestie, parents, or therapist.
NO! The point of holding space is to be there for you when you need it. If you want more sessions, just click the “sign up” button and schedule them. Zero pressure. I’m not here to sell you anything.
If you are craving more from me, let me know & we can explore mentorship. Again, you will never feel pressured by me to “buy coaching packages” or the like.
Holding space just means that I’ll listen to you. I’ll be fully present & accept you fully as you are. So often we are told that we shouldn’t feel the way we do or that we should respond to something in a certain way. If we’re looking for help, maybe it’s helpful (A BIG MAYBE).
The point is that you have someone to lean on, and you’ll get WHAT YOU NEED in return. And, if you don’t know what you need or want, I’ll gently give you options of what I CAN offer, should you want it.
Use me any way you want – it’s your hour. Maybe you’re struggling with a personal matter & reached out because something I blogged about resonated with you. Or maybe you just love my website & want to learn how I did something (not exactly holding space but cheaper than paying a web consultant, lol). WHATEVER. IT WORKS.
There are no refunds. Please understand that if I schedule time with you, I’m not scheduling time with someone else. If you need to reschedule, please do so a minimum of 24 hours before your session. If you have concerns about this policy, please inquire BEFORE you purchase. Thank you.
