Happy Hiking

Welcome to -Unbecoming with Karen - Life Coaching Program!

I have made it my life’s mission to study healing, personal growth and self-improvement and get down to the reasons why people struggle. I believe that everyone can find joy and peace in any situation but it doesn't always feel like it. Sometimes we take hard hits in life that cause us to shrink back from risks, or lash out in ways that stifle our relationships and peace of mind. Not many people are aware just how much their minds affect their level of life satisfaction. It’s never too late to learn your patterns of thought, stories you've created in your mind about your life and detach yourself from such deeply held beliefs. With my coaching, you'll discover the power of now and gain the ability to shed image, labels, false beliefs and judgments that bring you anguish, anger, insecurity, and stress. Together we will cultivate a life full of pleasure, happiness and ease. 

Various life challenges/transitions I can coach you through include but are not limited to:

Anger/stress management


Midlife crises

Fitness/weight loss

Relationships of all kinds (marriage, friendship, sibling, God)

Parenting at all stages

Growing in your faith

Healing from an affair/divorce/breakup

Overcoming anxiety


During our time together, I will work to get to know who you are, who you were and who you were meant to be in order that I can create a custom-made plan for your personal evolution in this life.  It will depend on you taking risks with me by letting me in on your innermost thoughts and struggles and experiences so that I can begin to offer the healing advice and guidance that will help you begin moving forward as soon as possible. You will graduate from my program with direction, resolutions, wisdom and confidence that will carry you through the rest of your life.

I’m looking forward to getting to know you, and all your life’s experiences. I look forward to honing my artist abilities to help you create a life of meaning and beauty. Your loved ones will notice a more attentive, less reactive demeanor. You will enjoy a greater sense of calm, focus and confidence. Heroes are those who heal and then show others how to do it. You will heal and become a lighthouse for others who are lost. I believe in the resiliency, and hope for a better life that started you on this journey to begin with.

Let’s get you in (or back in) the game! The world is missing out on you!


About Me

Therapist, Coach, Author, Artist, Mother

Did you know that anyone can call themselves a Life Coach? No credentials required! I have been a Licensed Clinician since 1999, and I’ve sought and studied to help people break through the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life, namely getting organized, goal-setting and improving confidence and communication skills and healing from heart-ache. Life's too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. Let me help you learn and develop better ways to handle the issues that are standing in the way of your goals and happiness. Get in touch today to see what I can do for you.

Upon receiving payment, our work together will include: up to a 1 hour-long phone call, video messenger chat or face-to-face session (if geography allows) per week; unlimited texts and emails whenever you need on-the-spot encouragement or guidance or simply to vent (please be aware of my HST time-zone, I may not be able to respond immediately, but always within 8 hours), I will pray for you during our contract in my personal time with God, send affirmations and quotes at random as I feel they apply to your situation, and will pray with you at your request. I will begin assigning you homework immediately to be completed by the following week’s call (completing assignments will be pivotal in promoting faster growth, but you will not be penalized for not completing).

Missed weekly call cannot be made up. Shorter calls, at your request cannot be banked for longer calls in the future. I strongly recommend that you read my book “Unbecoming” prior to or at the beginning of our work together.

Cost for an 18 month journey together is $3000 (equaling about $166.67/month). That's about $42/session (the going rate for therapy is $100 dollars MORE than that per session AND your therapist won't be available to you for chats in between sessions!) Residents of Oahu, Hawaii will receive a 12 month journey at the same price because I will be traveling to meet you face-to-face (what therapist does THAT?)

Hiring me a month at a time without a targeted end date is $300/month for both residents and non-residents of Hawaii.

One week is $100 for both residents and non-residents.

You can also enjoy a referral check of $200 for each person who hires me for the journey using your name.

At the end of our 12 or 18-month-long journey together, we will highlight your growth with a ritual of your choosing, symbolizing how far you’ve come. Follow up sessions will be offered at reduced rate of 50% off for the remainder of your life.
