LISTEN to this FREE training from Kristen and LEARN the 3 things every Empath needs to know to tap into their unique GIFTS.


I'm Kristen

I wear a few hats - writer, entrepreneur, attuned empathic healer, and certified trauma recovery coach. With a Master's Degree in Counseling, I'm about helping people tap into their potential.

In 2016, fueled by passion and a strong sense of purpose, I founded Realized Empath. It's more than just a wellness community; it's a hub where Empaths and Highly Sensitive people come together for support, inspiration, and healing.

When I'm not diving deep into the world of empaths, you'll probably find me planning my next travel adventure or cozying up with a good book in a hammock surrounded by trees.


My home base is in Georgia, where I live with my amazing husband and two wonderful children.

Let's embark on this journey together - I can't wait to meet you!



The Highly Sensitive Person’s Guide to Transforming Trauma and Anxiety, Trusting Your Intuition, and Moving from Overwhelm to Empowerment.


The Healed Empath is essential reading for empaths and caring, sensitive people who are looking for a self-compassionate path to well-being. Kristen Schwartz presents a nuanced perspective by shining a light on how trauma can sometimes create or shape the empath experience. She addresses challenging issues for most empaths, such as boundaries and self-care, and offers a transformative manual for healing. This book is as insightful as it is timely. Highly recommended The Healed Empath!
