The Career Clarity Intensive

lost in confusion about what to do next in your career and scared of making the wrong decision?


Are you...

unhappy in ballet but totally unsure if that means it’s time to quit or just make a change?

unhappy in ballet but totally unsure if that means it’s time to quit or just make a change? 

Having worked with dozens of dancers over the last few years, I know that making a big decision about your future isn’t as simple as making a pros and cons list. 

It also can’t be decided for you just by getting the opinions of other people who know you.

But when you’re at the place where you aren’t sure what career moves to make because you see a point to every option…

OR you are burnt out, unhappy, and disconnected from your passion for ballet, but you are still terrified of a future without ballet because you aren’t sure what to do and fear making a decision you’ll regret, where do you turn? 

How do you know you’re making the right choice?

If that’s you,
you are SO not alone!

If That’s You,
You Are SO Not Alone!

Doing this alone or just contemplating the surface level aspects of each decision (which are so hard to do from a place of fear), is tough.

That’s why, as a certified professional coach and master practitioner of neurolinguistic programming as well as a former professional ballet dancer who deeply understands what it is like to be in that place of confusion, I offer the support to dancers that I wish I had at several points in my training and career. 

And honestly, making a regret-free decision isn’t so much understanding the options themselves, but rather understanding our own emotions and motivations behind our current situation and the options we are considering.

Introducing The Career Clarity Intensive

designed to help you resolve the emotions, fears, and doubts that are clouding your ability to make a decision, get crystal clear on the path that will serve you best, and design a purposeful path forward that you are excited to walk out.

designed to help you resolve the emotions, fears, and doubts that are clouding your ability to make a decision, get crystal clear on the path that will serve you best, and design a purposeful path forward that you are excited to walk out. 

A 6-Session 1:1 Coaching Program


Unpack and resolve what ISN’T working for you about your current situation. Whether it’s burnout, a lack of trust in yourself, trying to fit into a path that you’ve let others choose for you, or fear/anxiety that is clouding your ability to make a clear decision, we will release this first in order to come to a place where you can see yourself and your true desires more clearly. 

one.

Explore the options you are considering and get clear on what your motivations are behind each option. 

two.

Once we understand where either fear or true, positive desire is motivating you, you can assess what values you want to be motivated by in your life and understand which option is most suited towards helping you become the person you want to be. In this phase, we will also uncover what it means to you to make the “right” decision (and change that definition if it is not fitting) and gain clarity on how you will know personally when it is time to commit to a choice. 

Determine what precise actions will help you to gain the final clarity you need to make a choice you feel is right for you. 

three.

Whether it’s going to that audition, sending an email, visiting a campus, or talking to a particular person, we will get clear on when it’s time to take particular actions in order to gain confidence around a decision rather than spending all your time and emotions getting stuck in a spiral of contemplation. 

Assess the feedback from the mindset work and action to come to a decision and build out a vision for your path forward that you are excited about.

four.

The good news is that it often doesn’t take long to get clear on what’s next! This intensive is intentionally designed to have more sessions than are usually needed to make a decision so that you also have my support as you actually start to walk out that decision. This is where we will focus on not just being regret-free, but truly thriving in this new path.

"Before coaching with Kirsten, I found myself dreading dance classes due to self-destructive habits, and was considering quitting pre-professionally. However, I kept holding myself back as the possibility of regretting this life-changing decision kept haunting me. Kirsten and I managed to come to a definite answer within one session, which in comparison to the months of me debating in my mind, is astoundingly fast. Because of our work together, I have managed to leave pre-professional dance with no regrets, a better understanding of myself, and new healthy habits to cope with future challenges.

Kirsten is very patient, understanding and comforting to talk to. I can clearly tell that she is genuinely in touch with my emotions and is excited to help me achieve happiness and clarity. I recommend any dancer who is struggling to try out this coaching program - you will not be disappointed!"

- Zi, Former Pre-Professional Dancer


Words From Past Clients

"Before working with Kirsten, I was feeling unsure about leaving ballet professionally and what I would do next. Because of our work together, I am experiencing a new sense of freedom, clarity, confidence, and excitement going into my new path after ballet. Each session I gained knowledge and insights about myself and my situation, and I am truly amazed to see how much I have grown in such a short amount of time. Kirsten is very insightful, a great listener, and empathetic, which allowed our conversations to be very open and productive. She was able to quickly make connections, and I was pleased with where our conversations went. She guided me as I made this important decision, but also gave me tools that I will be able to use for situations in the future. This process was really life-giving for me and being able to go through a transition while working with her was so helpful. If you are considering working with Kirsten, I can personally say that this investment was very valuable for my present and future. I highly recommend working with her, no matter your age or level of ballet training."

- Former Professional Dancer 

"My time working with Kirsten would be what I would describe as one of the best decisions I have made for my future. Kirsten listened, was thought-provoking and truly cared about helping me obtain what I was searching for. I came disoriented as to where I stood with dance in my life, and have emerged with direction along with an array of concrete tools. Thank you Kirsten, for providing a much needed service for an art form that is just as mentally demanding as it is physically."

- Nadia Smith, Pre-Professional Dancer turned Art Student

Within just two calls, Kirsten helped me adopt a new mindset that instantly lifted the weight off my shoulders. Now I am able to focus on taking the right course of action to move forward with my career without worrying and obsessing over what could happen to hinder me. This has allowed me to see new possibilities in stressful situations. She clearly cares about my well-being and her coaching is focused, lucid, and efficient. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs some perspective and guidance during their career struggle!”
