Coaching with me is an interactive event. It is not about me talking TO you or AT you. It’s a WITH you event. It’s a collaboration. I am merely a guide to show you how to LIVE instead of Exist. And guess what? You already have the answers inside of you. I will hold a sometimes pretty bright flashlight to your life and help you out of a victim mode mindset into a growth mindset. How? Through a series of small action steps that are measurable. My sessions are an active event with laughing, probing questions, and lots of care. I don’t believe coaching or self-help needs to always be so serious! Yes, there might be some tough stuff that comes up, but together you will learn the attributes of resiliency, courage and grit to thrive and LIVE!
There's a reason I'm so passionate about helping others cultivate the qualities of Resilience and Grit. After a messy and public divorce, I started my own personal training business and those attributes were essential. With being a stay at home Army wife and mother the only thing on my resume, I had to rebuild myself from the ground up after moving to a new town with no money, friends, family, or job. It was a sink or swim moment. Fortunately I had life experiences to draw on. Among them being raised on a ranch with animals and chores, working on a steamboat that went up and down the Mississippi River, kicked out of BYU, actor in LA, being a bodybuilder competitor, having a faith crisis and leaving a high demand religion, to navigating emerging memories of trauma. I believe we aren’t meant to do life alone. Connections are everything. Owning my story gives me strength and hope. My life is full and abundant. It’s also full of heartbreaks and disappointments. And many bursts of joy! I love to laugh and be light hearted. Life is cool that way. I thrive when I'm my authentic self instead of hiding or playing small.
“Kathryn has been one of the most important driving forces in the transformation of my life from being dead inside to alive. As a direct result of her encouragement, enthusiasm, deep listening and insights, I have been able to face issues in my life that I was never before able to confront. Through her mentoring and positive support, I have made positive life changes, including understanding on a deeper level what is important to me, what inspires me and what I can do right now to make that real. Kathryn has the ability to listen free of judgment and hones in to help you unpack the stuff of being human. It is a pleasure to call her my mentor. She’s the real deal." -Susan B.
“Coaching with Kathryn is like having a conversation with your best friend. She listens with such compassion and understanding, but also brings her no BS approach like a friend would. It’s just enough to get you to stop and think, wow, she really cares about me. Kathryn nudged me little by little to get to the root cause of why I wasn’t taking care of myself in a certain way. And it was a hard truth. She gave me the space to sit in that for a bit, and then we worked on tools to change my beliefs. She’s a beautiful person inside and out.” -Katie S.
“Kathryn helped me identify that there were several personal life long issues that held me back weight wise and health-wise. She helped me physically but also helped me rehabilitate my negative thoughts of myself and life in general. Kathryn is encouraging. She doesn’t sugar coat things but is not hurtful in her approach. She’s also not so gentle that you do not take accountability. Kathryn strives to communicate in a way that you understand so that you can process the information to work through anything whether it is professional or personal. I personally have learned so much from her - not only towards my physical health but in my personal and professional life.” -Nena E.
“I met Kathryn three years ago. Over the course of those three years she has helped me grow and transform into a happier healthier person. She did this by always being open and honest with me. She has forever changed my life and helped me become a stronger woman. ” -Sarah C.
“What started off as a weight loss journey turned into a journey of self-preservation, self-care, and the mindset to thrive in my professional and personal life. ” -Missy D.
