The Calm After the Divine Storm
I am proof that transformational healing in mind, body and heart is absolutely attainable. I paved my way from multiple health crises, debilitating stress and anxiety to peace and well-being, from passiveness to assertive empowerment, from heartbreak to a renewed spirit and purpose. I combined my deepest passion, wisdom, experience and spiritual gifts to empower others on their heartfelt path.
A Little About Me
After struggling with debilitating stress, depression, anxiety and feeling alone, misunderstood and uninspired, I embarked on a spiritual journey of self-discovery. I left behind everything I thought would make me happy in order to reveal my authentic path—the road less traveled. This exploration led me to my innermost truths: I am a highly intuitive empath with inherent gifts that I have developed as a part of my purpose.
Along the path to finding my purpose in life, I stumbled upon Assertiveness for Earth Angels by Doreen Virtue and felt called to become a Certified Assertiveness Coach. This certification and the principles of assertiveness changed my life. As I applied these principles to my own life over the course of one year, I learned to discern my authentic truth, step up for my own needs and take vital measures in self care. I also developed special tools to preserve and protect my precious energy.
Throughout my journey, I discovered the spiritual principles that hold the key to a fulfilling and peaceful existence. I deepened my own spiritual connection to God and developed the empowering gift of my own intuition.

I had the privilege of working with Karilyn on editing her poetry last year. I'm continually impressed by her ability to transform her own struggles with self-love, self-care, and self-worth into empowering lessons for her clients. She is a gentle, empathetic soul who is truly committed to serving others through her own personal and artistic journey. I'd recommend Karilyn to anyone needing a compassionate guide through difficult times.
