coaching for creative humans

You are capable of amazing things – I believe it. What if you believed it too?

Maybe you’re here because you are terrified of failing. Or because you’ve forgotten what it feels like to come alive in your work. Or because you know in your bones that you are meant to do that thing for your art and your heart and your life, and you have no idea how to get from here to there.

What would it take for you to believe it was all possible, and that you are capable of creating that future?

I’ve been right where you are, and I can help.

I coach creative humans in times of transition – whether you’re just at the start of your creative career or you’re making big, mid-career leaps. I will teach you how to tune in to your own inner wisdom to find the clarity and courage you need to take the next steps to that dream and beyond.

Our work together is tailored to your needs, and I work with a limited number of clients at a time to foster a super personalized experience.

“I’ve had the honor of being coached by Kristyn, and there’s no other way to describe it than life transformative. My biggest takeaways weren’t just about the system I’d originally hired her to help me set up, it was all about how I was showing up in my life. It was about why I was continuously blocking my joy and not allowing myself to fully celebrate my life, as it was. I will be forever grateful for that hour that Kristyn spent with me because it resulted in massive shifts for me. Paying for that coaching call was some of the best money I have ever spent – her wisdom is unlike anything I’ve encountered before. If you’re ready to go beyond the surface and dig deep to achieve real, impactful results, Kristyn is your person.”

“When my business felt like it had stalled out, and I was hitting a wall, I reached out to Kristyn for creative coaching. She asks the hard questions, helps you dig deep and see what you may be dancing around. Together we have worked to elevate my business into something that leaves not only my heart full but also my client’s hearts full as well. I wholeheartedly recommend working with her if you want to take your business and creativity to a new level.”

“Kristyn has touched my life so many ways. It started when she reached out as a complete stranger and spoke kind words to me about the work I was doing. She has photographed my family and it has been hands down one of the best investments I’ve made. I’ve also had the privilege of mentoring with her where she asked me really important questions – beyond the subject of what we’re addressing. She goes deep and is able to think quickly on the spot about the things we experience as creatives, both personally and professionally. She basically speaks to your soul and because of that, it allows the freedom to answer questions in a really meaningful way. Kristyn is a wonderful human, I’m honored to know her.”

Why does coaching matter?

It all begins by asking the question: What do I really want?

While it may seem counterintuitive, starting with a big picture question helps lead us to clarity about all the daily things we need to do to get there – and who we need to be in our business and our lives to stay there. As solopreneurs, we’re often bouncing on a daily basis through a to-do list a mile long (one that never really gets shorter) – and taking the time to ask these deep questions actually builds the foundation for every tactical choice that comes afterward as we build our business and refine our creative voice.

My friends over at the National Association of Professional Child Photographers recently asked me to write a feature piece for Inspired Magazine about my journey as a coach, and why having a coach can be such a key part of your evolution.
