Are you ready to master your energy?

From empath surviving

To empath thriving

As an empath or highly sensitive person, your unique sensitivity to the environment, people, and their energies is a profound gift. You naturally absorb the energies around you, uplifting and challenging.


But let's be real – this can sometimes lead to feeling overwhelmed. It's tempting to think that the only way to cope is by shrinking yourself, saying 'yes' when you want to say 'no,' and constantly pleasing others.


This often means you shy away from seeking support, leaving you feeling isolated and misunderstood. Remember, your sensitivity is your superpower, and it's okay to reach out and embrace the support you deserve.


My Approach

As an empath or highly sensitive person, your journey to thriving is deeply rooted in self-healing. That's exactly why I created Realized Empath – to specifically address your unique needs for healing and growth.


My approach centers on cultivating self-awareness, a crucial step in identifying and overcoming the barriers that hold you back.

I'll guide you through understanding and healing your pain, reshaping how you perceive the world.


By recognizing and honoring your own needs, you'll strengthen your intuition and build trust in yourself. I'll help you establish the necessary boundaries, empowering you to feel safe and authentic in a world that may not always seem sensitive to your depth.


At Realized Empath, I'm more than just an expert – I'm your dedicated guide to a more empowered and genuine you."


As a professional with a heart attuned to healing, my journey led me to earn a Master's degree in Counseling – a path that wasn't just a career choice but a calling. This pursuit is more than just a profession to me; it's a gift, a passion, and a true purpose in life.

My personal story is one of resilience and transformation. Like many, I've navigated through significant life challenges, what some might call 'big trauma.' Yet, in these experiences, I found a profound truth: the darkest moments often pave the way to our greatest purposes. Embracing my creative power was key to liberating my spirit and finding inner peace.

Outside of my professional life, I'm an adventurer at heart. There's a unique vitality I find in nature, especially in the majestic landscapes of the mountains. The tranquility and expansiveness of the outdoors invigorate me, so I'm more likely to be found hiking in the rugged terrains of Alaska than lounging on a beach. This connection to nature is vital to who I am, personally and professionally.

In every aspect of my life, I strive to embody the values of authenticity, resilience, and a deep connection to the natural world. These are the same values I bring into my counseling practice, creating a space of trust, understanding, and genuine care for every individual I can work with.



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!
