I help organizations support their team members holistically through awareness, communication and creativity coaching so that everyone benefits.

Catch Me in Action

There is a great need for integrating the wholeness of a person in their personal and work environments and engaging them to create the work/life harmony that they desire for themselves. Empowering people to speak up, share their gifts, and bring their whole self to each experience means creating more passionate, fulfilled people who level up and offer their creativity and purposeful work to better not only your organization, but their families, communities and the world.

When people do not feel seen and heard, if they don't feel they are contributing in a meaningful way, they can become burnt out, less productive and generally unhappy.

The Power of Possibility

In this talk, we discuss the power of the subconscious mind, and how we can decide to rewrite the automatic programming that has been running our story. Attendees are empowered to pay attention to their thoughts, words and reactivity. We explore how tamping down our voice and our truth creates stagnant energy and blocks our unique expression.


We learn how to free our voice and use techniques to empower ourselves for creative transformation.


Thank you for your leadership with our teachers. This was valuable not only for them but for their students. I look forward to working together with you soon.

Thank you for all that you do for our patients! The feedback and participation in this group has been wonderful, and it makes me so happy to see our patients getting so much out of this. And I really believe that most of that is due to your presence and spirit as the group leader.

Karen started coaching me this year during a very transitional point in my life, having just left my 24-year career in finance to pursue music full time. My sessions with Karen are so valuable and inspiring! Karen is an excellent communicator, listener, she is funny, positive, and, most of all, encouraging. I really value my sessions with her.

Steven Feldman
Former Executive Director at JP Morgan, now Passionate Music Producer

Karen is a great synthesizer of issues, challenges and truths, and helped me to work on things through both a big picture lens and in detailed ways. Plus she introduced me to various approaches for “me” time – including guided meditation, vocal toning, and journaling.
