Transformative Life Coaching

Are you ready to make the impact that you were Born to make?

I help sisters who feel restless, stuck, or unfulfilled – sisters who are being summoned to fulfill a higher purpose – gain clarity and facilitate profound shifts in BEing so that they can create powerful transformations in both themselves and the world.

You have a greater purpose. Now's the time to own, live, breathe it.

Your life has immense meaning, and despite spending years conforming to cultural paradigms, something deep inside of you is stirring to come forward. To be seen. To do the work that you’re being called to do in this lifetime.

You’re now being summoned by either your soul or the collective soul of humanity to courageously emerge from the shadows without apology and fulfill your unique calling. For the benefit of the world. Sister, now’s your time to rise.

What if you honored your calling?

You have a purpose that’s unique to you. And, you were NOT put on this earth to merely survive as a cog in a soul-sucking life machine! But instead of fulfilling your higher calling, have you been sacrificing your inner peace and integrity for others? Are you putting your purpose on hold until…? Until what, sister?

Do you feel stuck or trapped? That by honoring your soul’s path you’ll create chaos in your life? The truth is that you might! But isn’t ignoring your calling far more painful?

"Her voice was a divine guidance inside my body and heart allowing me to create a new healthy story within me."

“My coaching session with Kristi was powerful, beautiful and peaceful. During my coaching session, she guided me to scan my body in a way I never experienced before. Her voice traveled inside my body connecting me with an important emotion I was needing to feel; a stuck childhood trauma that has been extremely heavy and painful in my life. I felt safe with Kristi thanks to her loving and compassionate presence.

Her connection, patience, and safe space allowed me to see and feel how that event has been affecting my life and health. Her voice was a divine guidance inside my body and heart allowing me to create a new healthy story within me. She always brings to my sessions a heart full of compassion and dedication to help me create a positive change. She is a coach with a sweet and loving heart with the power to transform a painful emotion into peace.”

— Ritvika Radha Devi

You're not alone.

I've spent my life navigating this path.

Not living my dharma (soul’s purpose) has caused me tremendous pain throughout my life, and I’ve responded to this pain in a variety of unconventional ways.

From attempting suicide to dropping out of college to choosing homelessness. From becoming an activist to participating in sacred Indigenous sweat lodge ceremonies to herding sheep for a Diné elder. From hopping freight trains to becoming a union spy to being recruited by the CIA. From getting multiple college degrees to walking on red-hot coals to completing 500 hours of yoga teacher training. And most recently, from leaving a stable “good” job that caused me intense psychosomatic pain to becoming a coach.

I knew that I had a purpose, but I ignored the signs. It took working with a coach for me to finally embrace my purpose and muster up the courage to fulfill it.

Peace and fulfillment come from living in integrity with your purpose.

What if you Made the impact that you were put on this Glorious earth to make?

What if you discovered your soul’s purpose and created a plan to fulfill it? What if you lived in alignment with your calling while bravely setting boundaries? What if you came to find humor in your limiting beliefs and watched as their death grip withered away? What if residing in a place of profound peace came naturally to you? What if your paradigm became soul-aligned and you experienced a profound shift in BEing?

Imagine feeling fulfilled each and every day, knowing that you’re doing your life’s work. Imagine the impact you’ll make once you gain clarity of your path and purpose. Imagine having the tools to tap into your innate wisdom at any moment. Imagine the joy you’ll feel and how your life will change when you start living in alignment with who you truly are. Imagine the ripple effect that your transformation will have on others.

Feedback from my sisters

5/5

“I am fortunate to be able to get coached by Kristi on multiple issues and situations. Kristi is extremely patient and gentle while guiding me through every single session. I feel completely safe sharing my concerns, questions, and problems with her.

After each and every session, I have walked away with a new insight or more clarity or peace. I truly appreciate her presence and intuitive guidance during coaching sessions. I would recommend working with Kristi if you are interested in getting real results.”

— Nirali Dubal, MD, MPH
5/5

“Kristi holds a compassionate space for her clients. She listens deeply, reflects what you explored back to you and she asks for more detail in the spirit of someone who cares deeply and wants the best for you.

She is relatable, grounded in her own spiritual practices and she invites you to explore your own circumstances more deeply. I was able to come away from our sessions with a renewed perspective, a sense of hope and personal agency for making decisions or taking actions moving forward. Kristi is a beacon of light helping to guide you along when there may be darkness, confusion or lack of clarity.”

What was going on for you before our coaching session?

I was struggling with fear of failure.

What was your experience during our coaching session?

Kristi walked me through some tools to use when I begin to feel like this. She was knowledgeable and caring. She could see the affects of the tools as we were going through them.

Did you have any insights, aha! moments, or other internal shifts as a result of our coaching session?

Those fears will always be there. It’s what I do with them that counts. Not allowing them to rule choices, but using the tools I have to make decisions based on truth, not what my mind has made up.

Is there anything else you’d like to share about your experience?

I love meeting with Kristi!! She has a sweet calm presence that instantly makes me feel at ease. She’s knowledgeable but also leads me to the answers that are within myself.

5/5

“I look forward to my sessions with Kristi. She’s a great listener and asks powerful questions. Kristi allows me to think through the situation being worked on in the session, and helps me come up with new and creative solutions. I love partnering with her in our sessions. Her kindness and instincts shine during our discussions. It’s always a pleasure.”

What It's Like To Work With Me

Maybe you have an ongoing area of focus, or maybe you come to each session with something new.

Either way, we’ll start with identifying what you’d like to work through that day and what you’d love to take away from the session.

Maybe that’s an action plan.
Maybe that’s clarity.
Maybe that’s dreaming and scheming.
Maybe that’s simply to be witnessed.
Maybe that’s something else.

We’ll create a sacred coaching container.

I’ll ask you questions. You’ll do most of the talking.

I’ll hold powerful space for you, interjecting sometimes.

Maybe we’ll do some guided journeying together.
Maybe we’ll time travel to offer support and love to your younger self.
Maybe we’ll time travel to meet your older self – your wise woman.

I may challenge you gently but powerfully, and always from a trauma-sensitive approach.

But, I’ll encourage you to lean into the discomfort that’s bound to arise.

If transformation seems imminent, I’ll seek your permission to create a special container for it to occur.

Transformations are interesting, and each is unique.
It’s not a transformation if the underlying change doesn’t stick.
Your transformation may require absolute stillness at just the right moment.
Your transformation may require dissolving limiting beliefs through inquiry.
Your transformation may require significant debrief or nearly none.
We’ll work with whatever arises.

Many sessions aren’t transformative. This is completely normal and not indicative of any sort of failing.

We’re not always looking to transform our lives. And even when we are, transformation will come when it’s ready to be birthed.

So, our sessions will conclude with the closing of our sacred coaching container and a debrief.

Just a note that it’s important to me to respect both your time and mine, and therefore sessions will begin and end promptly.

In the event that we mutually agree that extending the session would be in our highest interest (and we have the capacity to do so), we’ll do just that.

Also, you’ll be invited to receive limited, between-session support from me via a messaging app.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please review the Q&As below. If you don’t see your question, drop me a line at [email protected]. I’ll do my best to respond within 1 business day.

Absolutely! In fact, it’s required for potential clients. Just click the apply now button, and I’ll respond to your inquiry within 2 business days. Thanks!

Yes! Calls via phone (US only), WhatsApp (with or without video), and FaceTime all work for me. 

My current minimum rates are listed in the discovery call request form and here.

Yes, with the caveat that all coaching is effectively pre-paid. We can discuss payment plan options that work for your circumstances during our discovery call.

Coaching is often transactional, which basically means that the client comes with an issue and the coach helps them map out a course of action. This may be extremely helpful, but it doesn’t inspire a lasting change in terms of how the client shows up in the world.

At the other end of the coaching continuum, there is deep transformational coaching. This is where sustained life-changing shifts in BEing occur.

Somewhere between these two ends of the coaching continuum lies the kind of coaching that produces aha! moments and breakthroughs that result in powerful change. But, these changes aren’t always permanent. Clients may get caught up in a loop where they find themselves revisiting some variation of the same problem over and over again, wondering why they can’t seem to make lasting change. 

As a life coach, my job is primarily to partner with you to achieve some objective. To this end, I’ll ask you powerful questions and use other coaching tools to help you uncover what you need from our sessions. But we’re not focused on shifting your way of being or adopting a new paradigm. In many ways, what you ask for is what you get.

For example, if you’re trying to lose weight and want to create a “fool-proof” plan for doing so, we might discover that you have a limiting belief that eating healthy “just doesn’t work for you” or that you “can’t stop eating when you’re stressed.” With your permission, we’d use inquiry to dismantle those beliefs and replace them with more empowering ones. Then, we’d identify what my mentor (Martha Beck) calls “turtle steps” to help you achieve your weight loss goals. This may be exactly what you need to create a permanent shift in BEing.

Alternatively, we could employ a purely transactional approach, such as identifying a diet plan that resonates with you.

As a transformative life coach, I’m still partnering with you to achieve some objective. But, instead of breaking out a bunch of cool tools or asking powerful AF questions, we’re going to dive deep. The objective you bring to our session provides us with context for deeply exploring the gap between who you are and who you need to become in order to bring your objective to life. The transformative element is uncovering what it will take for you to bridge the gap and setting the intention to embody the person that you’ve decided you must become.

Let’s revisit our example – that you’re trying to lose weight and want to create a “fool-proof” plan for doing so. With your permission, we’ll explore what’s driving your desire beyond the surface level; beyond the “I want to look good in a bikini” or “I want to feel healthier” reasons. Through inquiry and an exceptionally deep level of holding space, a shift in being occurs.* Limiting beliefs often dissolve on their own without the usual tools. A commitment to becoming the person who embodies a healthier relationship with food occurs, and through this commitment your objective has been reached.

*Important note: a shift in BEing cannot be forced or guaranteed to happen. My job as a transformative life coach is to help facilitate this shift…if it’s ready to happen. If it is, it will become clear during our session and we’ll allow it to unfold. If it’s not, we’ll simply continue our session using other coaching tools.

First, know that I’m here to meet you where you’re at. While I love and often gravitate towards transformative work, I also know that it’s neither for everyone nor is it the most sensical approach to use in many situations.

During our discovery call, we’ll get a better sense of whether we’re a good fit for each other. That is why it’s a required step for working with me!

Just keep in mind that we’ll always partner together throughout our coach-client relationship. And, that I’ll always ask for your permission before I break out a specific tool or approach.

Yes! Regardless of your gender or pronouns, if this site and my offerings resonate deeply with you and you’d like to explore working with me, please submit an application! 

My Refund Policy + Guarantee

I guarantee to show up, be present, and hold space for you. To coach you powerfully, to the best of my ability. That being said, you will get out of coaching what you put into it. Aha! moments and breakthroughs are bound to happen, but lasting change and especially shifts in BEing require commitment to “doing the work” and your own readiness at a soul level. Are you game?

Your progress and satisfaction are very important to me. So is my time (and yours). I don’t offer refunds, but I’m open to restructuring sessions to meet your needs.

My name's Kristi.

Peace, Beautiful Sister!

I worked with a mentor – my first (unofficial) coach – weekly for seven years. She held space for me. She saw me, heard me, cried and celebrated with me. She didn’t see me as broken. She helped me by listening, sharing her experience, strength, and hope, and supporting me when I did hard things. Through this beautiful soul, I learned how and felt called to hold space for other women. I’ve since followed my soul’s whispers to study under one of the greatest teachers in existence to become a coach myself.

Now, I help women who feel restless, stuck, or unfulfilled – women who feel like they’re being summoned to fulfill some higher purpose – facilitate profound shifts in BEing so that they can create the powerful and lasting transformations that their souls crave.
