Learn more about Karina
Hi, Karina here!
I am the founder of The Center for Highly Sensitive People in the Hudson Valley of New York. Our mission at The Center is to provide HSP education events, resources, services, and programs for families, individuals, and service providers in the Hudson Valley. To help HSPs know they have a place at the table and permission to use their unique skills in a way that helps everyone.
My dream is that each and every person who is a HSP understands the uniqueness and value of their trait so they can be motivated, contributing members of society. It is my goal, one by one, to hel...
What inspired me to become a wellness professional?
As a HSP and Empath who is is attuned to the pain and suffering of others, being a Life Coach has been a healthy way to be supportive in a fulfilling way. I am solution oriented and bring forward a optimistic attitude to my client sessions. Clients often report feeling emotionally and mentally 'lighter' after our calls. I truly believe HSPs are important contributors to our world and it is my passion to help HSPs connect to their strengths so they can feel more valued in the world.
How my clients describe their first visit?
Clients have often shared that I am like their 'optimistic best friend' who they can share anything with and feel lighter after each session. I am a firm believer in honoring my clients' inner guidance/intuition and will encourage you to trust yourself in more ways. I am also a natural teacher and love helping people see things in new ways when they feel stuck. Creating a new possibility in a situation that once felt hopeless is my favorite part of working with clients.
What I say to someone who has never tried coaching?
Before your first session you will complete the Getting Started Form, which will help you assess where you are on your journey so that you can get clear on 1 or 2 goals to focus on for the next 6 months. My coaching process has enough structure to keep things moving along in an effective way, but enough flexibility to allow the conversations to be led by what is coming up in the here and now. We will focus on your strengths and you will learn how to honor your sensitive nature. You will learn how to better communicate your needs and speak confidently when something doesn't feel right.
