My Approach
About me

Here’s a lightning round of fast facts:

• I’m an intuitive, Empath, and sensitive healer at heart. I was guided to my Masters's in Counseling for a reason. It’s a gift, a passion, a purpose.

• I’m a survivor (think Beyonce song); I've got what I call “big trauma” in my past. I discovered that the darkest parts were the path to my purpose, and tapping into my creative power freed my spirit.

• I crave adventure and love being in nature; my ideal vacation is open space and activity. I’m down to hike a glacier or kayak with whales. (so fun!)

For an Empath & Highly Sensitive (perceptive) to thrive, we must embrace self-healing.  I created Realized Empath to support the specific healing needs of the empath and highly sensitive person. Through self-awareness, we see our blocks; we learn to release what we perceive by healing our pain. By acknowledging our needs, we begin to trust and deepen intuition. By implementing boundaries, we feel safer in a hi-definition world.

Getting Support

Many Empaths & Highly Sensitives learn to people-please. Living most of our lives overwhelmed, we believe minimizing input means jumping through hoops for others. Because of this we rarely ask for help. We "do it ourselves"to the detriment of our mental health.

Now's your time to ask for support. 






Letting Go


Physical Burnout

Energy Protection


The work Kristen has done in this field is unparalleled. She's an excellent guide and teacher - I would highly recommend this class.

After taking the Highly Intuitive Empath course - I am now able to assess the situation in any given room I walk into - decide if it's my energy or the other person's energy I'm feeling and react appropriately. I learned how to create and feel a protective energy field around me before entering a potentially difficult situation (I'm still working on that ;). This class allowed me to recognize that I have the power to take care of myself and deflect the energy of others.
