Testimonials

Kristin is amazing! Whether you are in career transition or trying to think of creative ways to reinvigorate your current professional track, it seems this talented lady can do it all. She is incredibly empathetic and I instantly felt comfortable connecting with her. I loved the tools and self discovery assignments that came after all of our sessions. It was a great way to establish accountability and to ensure that I was retaining and following up on what we had discussed from prior sessions. Additionally, there is no judgment or raised eyebrows with Kristin. Just an openness to listen and help you discover and explore unmet and untapped potential. If you are stuck, aggravated at your current job, and creatively starved... meeting with Kristin is an absolute oasis of knowledge and healing.

I worked with Kristin for several months before getting a new job. The moment that highlighted how helpful she was happened when, about a month into working with her, my boss at the old job mentioned how my attitude had been improving the last several weeks. I thought, that’s curious, and then I realized that the time line matched up with when I started working with Kristin. Her help made hopeful that I wasn’t stuck and would move onto new challenges, and sure enough I have!

Working with Kristin is fantastic. I’ve referred her to everyone I know. She is extremely detailed and thorough, and she knows her stuff. I have really enjoyed getting to know everyone in the community at Brightside - wonderful connections. I highly recommend!
