About

Spoiler alert: Whether you have some issues or are just trying to live up to everything you think you are, or could be -- Kristen is the coach that you need in your corner. She's exceptional at listening, pinpointing issues, and not letting you get away with BS either. I'm a tech employee who felt she was looking for a therapeutic unicorn. Read to the bottom to see what crazy things I finished by the end of Kristen's Firestarter package! How I found her: I came to Thumbtack looking to quickly find someone to help me parse through some personal struggles. I'd just finished with a therapist (who frankly wasn't invested in helping me) and the thought of "shopping around" for someone who at least cared required more emotional energy and time than I had. Thumbtack took care of the "quickly" part, but after having brief intro conversations in the "therapist" section, I came to a grand realization. No knock to therapists or anyone who likes therapy, but those sessions only made me feel better because it solved one half of the problem. I could gripe with a confidant. However, after my therapy series matured, I kept getting more and more frustrated each time (instead of less) because we were stuck rehashing past until we finally worked to the present. By then, it felt like I was shelling out cash just to talk about my day without any real future / forward looking momentum, and that missing half was critical to me. That's where the idea to search for a "life coach" came in, but I couldn't tell who was a hack and who wasn't since life coaching is not entirely grounded in a universally recognized certifications. Kristen had the best and most relevant reviews so I checked out her website and found we had a couple of odd details in common that coincidentally had radical impact on some of my life perspectives. Living in Japan as a foreigner, etc. Our first session was a lot of getting to know each other and my interests and what goals would make my life feel fulfilled. Kristen listened well (I really respect that) and helped me ask better questions about what kinds of goals I wanted, how to take manageable steps to get there, and how to tackle the little demons that inevitably arise. Be prepared that she'll push you hard if she feels like you're skirting around an issue, but she's intelligent and intuitive enough to know where your limits are so that you don't leave each session feeling eviscerated. She's a coach, not a babysitter and she really wants you to go all in to achieve your goals. Each session ends with you giving her honest feedback about what she can do to improve. You'd be hard pressed not to leave the session with an inspirational glow and a feeling of real growth. :) We did weekly email check-ins at first to monitor my progress and set up accountability partners that weren't Kristen (my spouse, friends, etc.). We met up wherever I liked and I could see her as frequently or infrequently as I wanted, which was excellent as my goals have been project based. I'm glad to say that by the end of the Firestarter, I was able to program, design, animate, illustrate, market, monetize and publish two mobile games that are now for sale in worldwide marketplaces. Note that I couldn't even write a line of code / didn't know how to do any of these things before I met Kristen and I probably never would have had the confidence to try. ;) Also worth mentioning that since we worked on not only my dreams, but issues too, working with her improved other parts of my life. I'm making excellent, speedy process towards my macro level goals and I'm glad to have Kristen in my corner as the person who can help me see clarity no matter how unclear the future seems. Very excited to continue working with her. : D

Jackie is absolutely amazing. I've been plagued by my anxiety and depression for 5 years now. I've seen doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and couselors. I've taken a few different medications and nothing helped. One visit with Jackie and I have an immense increase in my quality of life. I'm no longer in a deep depression. I can laugh, smile, and be joyful again. Thanks to Jackie, I can finally give the love and support to my wife and three month old son that they deserve.

About

Before I started seeing Didi I had visited many therapists and had poor results. I felt like all the advice that was being fed to me was an automated response with no real emotion. When I started seeing Didi things changed. I had finally found someone who I could relate to and who gave me real life advice and suggestions on how to better myself and life. She helps you break down those problems that seems to be so huge into smaller tasks that are easier to handle. Then gives you tools to use in order to over come those problems and reach the right outcome for you. I have worked with her for nearly five years now and she has helped bring me out of the dark and into the light where I know I belong. I consider her not only an outstanding professional but a wonderful person and friend. She has had a huge impact on my life and I highly recommend her services.

About

Jordan Fengler-Mondau was recommended to me by my nutritionist. I have been working with her for a couple of months as a personal trainer. I have mobility issues and had concerns that a personal trainer might not listen to me. I was very pleased that after my first workout, Jordan crafted an exercise regimen that has increased slowly and steadily, as I was able to do more. Jordan firmly believes in the HAES philosophy, and I wish more trainers and healthcare professionals did. She has never been judgmental and I've never felt any side-eye from her about my weight. We began with one workout per week but now, she comes to our home three times a week. Jordan is prompt every visit, bringing with her weights and other small pieces of portable exercise equipment. We do the exercises together and as hokey as it might sound, the time flies by because the exercises are varied and fun. I have enjoyed actually feeling stronger, especially the noticeable shift from three pound weights to five pound and now eight pound weights. Since we began our workouts, I've noticed more strength in my legs and she recently commented that she noticed more definition in my upper arms. If you are looking for a personal trainer that cares about her clients, look no further. Jordan is absolutely fantastic and I'd recommend her to anyone who'd like more strength or cardio in their lives. She always arrives in good spirits and as I said, she does the exercises with me so I don't feel like she's just passing time while I work out.

About

I help you fix your most important relationships: your partner, your kids, your parents, your friends, and your work. Is your work life causing problems? I've worked at executive levels for corporations around the world, have hired (and sometimes, sadly, fired) staff, seen hundreds of resumes, and worked with volunteers, employees, colleagues, and CEOs. I might have some insights for your career that will get you back on track. Are you arguing over money? Not only am I a relationship therapist, but I'm also a financial counselor and the author of multiple books on family finances. I've seen firsthand the peace that comes of financial security and teach techniques for solving your money problems. I have the tools you need to find financial peace. Are you struggling with marriage? Relationship counselors should know what they're talking about. My husband and I have been happily married for more than 20 years, but I've been up close and personal with the difficulties of mediating a divorce, custody, remarriage, and a blended family. I'm a big fan of peaceful and amicable families for the mental health of both kids and adults. Is parenting causing you headaches? We've raised seven children and have seen everything: adoption, special needs, teens, college, and culture change. Teenagers are my favorite people. I teach and mentor teens and younger children through the YMCA and my local church congregation. I'm also the author of several books on education and parenting, and what I didn't live through personally, I've seen while working at the Seattle Crisis Clinic. Are you facing divorce or a tough breakup? Mediation fixes a thousand things. Though I'm not a working attorney, my law degree and mediation experience might provide some useful insights as you struggle with the decision to stay together or split up. When partners decide to split, I work with a network of excellent family law attorneys in King and Pierce counties to minimize conflict and mediate peaceful and amicable parenting and custody arrangements. I am credentialed as a certified counselor, with multiple degrees in family counseling, financial planning, journalism, and law. I'm the author of more than a dozen books on education, religion, and financial planning and investing for families. My graduate work is in marriage and family therapy. I spent the better part of 13 years living overseas, and I also know the struggles of blending different cultures and languages.

About

Hypnotherapy is the little known and misunderstood healing technique for the mind and body. Conditions I treat with hypnotherapy include the following: * Smoking * Exam taking * Weight loss * Procrastination * Allergies * Phobias * Improve study habits * Chronic pain * Anxiety * Reduce stress * Strong emotions * PTSD * Insomnia * Depression * Understanding and managing strong emotions Facts to know: You are always in control, and your body will know when to stop. You can change deep-seated negative beliefs about yourself. You get back in touch with your healing power. You will learn how to heal physical and emotional problems in your life. Hypnotherapists are only guides to help you explore and use your own hypnotic capacities. "The mind is like a parachute. It only works when it is open." Hypnosis is the simple shifting back and forth between the conscious and subconscious mind, a natural process that occurs off and on throughout everyday .Trance looks like daydreaming, watching a movie, falling asleep, reading a book, or browsing Facebook. Have you heard of highway hypnosis? We all have experienced that. The therapist becomes a guide and follows the lead of the client instead of having an agenda for what the client needs. Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy where you and a hypnotherapist use hypnosis to find out what your false beliefs are (i.e., What is holding you back) and rework them so you can move forward. I look forward to working with you.

About

See Psychology Today website above. Becoming whole requires the courage to risk being vulnerable and the discernment to make responsible choices as one repairs and builds healthy relationships and grows in self-understanding. As a therapist, I believe that everyone has what they need to heal, and I offer feedback to your process of developing authenticity, successful communication skills, and empathy for others. My practice tends to be client-centered, outcome-based, and holistic; based primarily in psychodynamics and family system models. I am equipped to assist others in exploring their religious/spiritual dimension, should someone find that useful to their growth process.
