Karen Hirschfeld is a holistic coach, a published author and an expert trainer and facilitator.
As a coach, she enables women in their 40s and 50s with depression and anxiety tap into their inner strength and values to THRIVE, not just "get by". She does this through working with them to envision their "dream life", and then using positive psychology, weekly goal-setting and accountability to allow them to become the person they want.
As Chief Communications Officer of Kick-Ass Communications, she helps companies, non-profits and individuals to find and use their own clear, confident voice. Her passion for writing was nurtured by bringing stories about both the beauty and the horror of the far-flung corners of the earth where she lived - Afghanistan, Haiti, Myanmar, Cameroon - to the people back in the United States.
As a Co-Founder and Managing Partner of KCL Consulting, she helps identify "pain points" in companies and non-profits impeding good communication and team-building and crafts tailored trainings to address these problems.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
