 What My Clients Say






I came to Kirsten confused about what I wanted to do with my life and unable to make sense of my own thoughts and interests— I was in a transition and completely stuck.

The best decision I made was to work with Kirsten. Kind, encouraging, and always professional, she asked insightful questions and helped make sense of my answers to identify my values and interests. After every session, she provided powerful exercises and writing prompts that proved invaluable to the process.

At the end of our time together, I felt like I was ready to take on the world! The nature of my amazing turnaround is thanks largely to Kirsten’s outstanding talent as a coach. Without her help, I would not have the incredible confidence, positivity, and clarity that I do now. I’ll be forever grateful for our time together and recommend Kirsten Shaw wholeheartedly! 

-Dave Noeller, Aviation Expert Turned Career Adventurer





   I'd been struggling for months to articulate what I wanted to accomplish with both my business and creative endeavors, and Kirsten's expertise was exactly what I needed. I left our first session energized, supported, and moving in the right direction with more clarity than I'd had in months. With Kirsten's help and support, I got clear on my goals and immediately made progress.

There are plenty of coaching programs, but Kirsten's generosity, intuition, and authenticity coupled with her marketing acumen is hard to beat. She's a resourceful marketing strategist, whose empathic spirit comes through in everything she does. I would highly recommend her services, and looking forward to working with her in the future.

Having passion, ideas and encouragement is a great start but it doesn't mean you have a clear vision of where you're going. Before I start working with Kirsten, my photography business was scattered and stressful. I needed a fresh, expert perspective on how to narrow down what I do to make it more enjoyable. Kirsten surprised me beyond what I could imagine. In just a few sessions, my mindset has totally shifted. I am focused and have a concrete vision of my priorities. I am way more efficient.

Kirsten has a unique sensibility and I was amazed how much value she brought to the table. She takes the time, asks the right questions, points at things you don't see and has a big picture approach. We talked about personal aspirations, creative dreams and careers goals and she made me realized how interdependent they are. Afterwards, she provided me with tools that I still use and checked in regularly to see how I was doing. 

I will definitely pursue this collaboration in the future. It's been an eye opener (which is good for a photographer :)

When I began working with Kirsten, I had been challenged with a lack of confidence and motivation to complete work on a project I’d started years before. Kirsten helped me reconnect with my passion and drive, while easily breaking the project down into completable portions. From the first communication, her questions and support have helped me get the work done; she truly has a gift for coaching creatives.

I was struggling putting my ideas into action before I started working with Kirsten. I had been dreaming of getting my community herbalism business up and running, but was majorly lacking in motivation and confidence. I struggled with naming my vision because I was daunted by the scale of my aspirations and afraid of failure.

Kirsten lovingly supported me in voicing my dreams and coming up with a realistic timeline that worked with my busy life. Having Kirsten checking in on my progress was the external motivation I craved. She helped keep me accountable to myself. With her help, I came up with a plan of action to display my products, grow my medicine making classes, and move toward the career I feel passionate about.

I really enjoyed going through this process with Kirsten and continue to feel positive about what my future holds. I've been totally using the tools she provided to improve my time management and make every day a productive one - personally, professionally, and creatively. Kirsten gives a strong sense of caring and understanding in the way she listens to my hopes and ambitions. It was a great experience. I now have a clear vision of where I see myself going in the years to come in my documentary film and photo career, and a action plan to make it happen.

I worked with Kirsten to get clarity on my vision for the year, and things went very different than I imagined after we met. I loved how she showed me how to break down my goals into steps and make deadlines, but I think the most important lesson was actually the importance of meditation and listening to and honoring what my body is saying. Now I'm on a path to seek healing for my body and I've already begun to practice some beathwork that is instantly relaxing, and that's something I thought I wouldn't even get to this year! Some the goals I chose for myself are on hold, but I think the more important lessons I had to complete have surfaced.

I met with Kirsten for a brief coaching session with the goal of getting out of a decision-making rut. Kirsten was non-judgemental, warm, and creative in her approach to helping me make a big decision! Even though we only worked together once, she thoughtfully followed up and cheered me on. I continued to think about the things that came up in our session and a month later I made the decision to move to NYC with confidence and excitement.

As a full time landscape architect with many passion projects, I came to Kirsten for clarity on how to grow my fine art print making business on the side. One session with Kirsten gave me more insights into my new business than ever before, and these resulted in huge leaps forward. 

This vibrant lady knows her stuff. Kirsten is highly skilled in marketing, strategy and communication. She is also genuine and authentic, a generous person with the intuitive ability to harness my ideas and dreams and bring them to life. Most importantly, she immediately understood my vision and provided clarity around my endless ideas, offering me the motivation and support to do what I love, successfully and with purpose. 

I now have a clear path forward to develop a creative business that supports me on multiple levels.
