I am your coach Katie Dirkswager, I am a trained holistic and transformational life coach. I have successfully coached in the education field for 8 years and am expanding through life coaching. Get ready to get un-stuck, discover and change what's been holding you back, create ideas and plans you never thought possible, break through blocks that may have held you back in the past and explore (and live) in the future you have always imagined. I am here to partner with you on your journey. The only limit to what is possible is what you believe is possible. You are AMAZING! With coaching you will grow into (and BELIEVE) that you are worth it, worthy of light and love; because you ARE.

Coaching is about creating an open and honest enviorment where clients can feel safe sharing their honest truths. I believe having a coach that you connect with is essential in this relationship. There have been many moments in my life that were full of fear; fear of not being good enough, fear of failing,  and fear of just not knowing. If I had not taken any chances I would still be living in Minnesota working a retail job dreaming of a different future. Instead, I have lived in Florida, South Carolina and now Oregon. I worked in higher education for the last 8 years, faced relocating, finding new jobs, harassment situations, isolation, weight loss and gain, bad relationships, layoffs, amazing friends, and life changing adventures. I have been able to impact others lives knowing that I am here for a reason and my voice needs to be heard. I know that I am being guided (by whatever higher power you believe in, I call it the Universe). Which has brought me to this point, wanting to share my message and my voice, the ability to see beyond the facade and impact change in others. I have found that many people lack support and are not taught self-love and self-care. We are taught to put our needs aside for the benefit of others; what happens then is burn out, exhaustion, frustration and, at times, giving up. I want to change that, I want you to know that it is possible. It is scary to try something new, but guess what? YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

What People Are Saying:

"I met Katie in 2015. Her spirit was so loving, gentle, and warming. She immediately gave me ease and peace about moving my whole life to another state to start my new career. She is a true gem. Throughout nursing school she would check up on me showing up to my classroom and calling me to see how I was adjusting to life in South Carolina. It felt good to have someone do that for me. School was very hard. There were nights that I didn’t sleep. A lot of nights I wasn’t sure if I was going to pass. Katie always gave me an encouraging word though. I could always count on her love, encouragement, and positive vibes to make it through! There were 15 proud graduates from Cohort 6 July 2017 Registered Nursing program and thank God I was in that number! I will always appreciate Katie for her ongoing support! After graduation Katie’s love never stopped. In March 2018 I passed NCLEX-RN and she was so proud of me! Thank you Katie for accepting me as part of your family while I was in South Carolina. I know you were one of the main reasons that I am now Ms. Joy N. Morrison, RN!!!!!!"

--Joy M.

"Katie helped me to pursue an efficient plan of action that was uniquely tailored to my interests, goals, and abilities. Katie assured me that I could accomplish my professional and personal goals. She eliminated my fear of failure. I walked away from our initial meeting feeling energized, confident and prepared to start my journey to success.Throughout my journey, Katie proved to be a gifted listener that is uniquely able to break down what she has heard into valuable, credible insight. With Katie’s guidance I was able to graduate with honors while raising three young children and maintaining a full time job, and full academic schedule. I was immediately offered a job position during my internship, and was recently promoted to my dream job.   

Katie empowered me to strive for excellence and I can honestly say I would not be where I am today without her guidance and support".

--Melissa D.

"I began my life coaching sessions with Katie because I was looking for guidance on advancing in my career. I was pretty focused on finding a new job. Katie helped me to become organized, helping me create a plan for success. Katie was great at checking in with me and holding me accountable! She helped me get to the root of what was holding me back, and reminded me of the importance of creating joy in life. By the end of our sessions, I had manifested a promotion at my job! I'm very grateful to Katie for all her help and guidance". 

--Mia C.

"Considering the world we live in today, it can appear that kindhearted people no longer exist. Katie is the epitome of a kindhearted person. Kindhearted people will go out of their way to help someone. Selflessly desiring to help the life of someone else is her number one priority.

When I first started my college experience it was scary and intimidating. There was a plethora of information to receive. In previous experiences I felt alone while going through the process. This was not the case with Katie. With Katie I experienced smooth sailing. Instead of feeling overwhelmed and confused I felt encouraged and excited about the journey ahead of me.

She kept me encouraged and driven, I know that she cared. I could feel pure concern for my success. This kindhearted soul was dedicated to providing me with the resources necessary to make my journey easier.

I could never repay Katie for her kind soul and dedication. I know I am just one of the few that she encouraged."
