Kristi is a Certified Executive Coach who, for the past 12 years, has guided companies and communities internationally through human connection and relational intelligence experiences. She is a mental health writer, professional speaker, and advocate.
I am your host, Claudia Cometa, and I currently work one-on-one with clients and I have an intimate understanding of where the system is breaking down.
I take my private clients through the process shown above. My 3 core pillars are wellness, communication and empowerment. My roles in each of these pillars is as an active listener, an advocate and an educator. The result of bringing these pieces together is a shift from stress and uncertainty to clarity and ultimately, peace.
Here's what a few of my clients have been saying about our work together:
"Claudia, there is no doubt that you are on the right path. I have told my doctors that you played a pivotal role in saving my life." ~Ken, private client
"This journey has been extremely long and painful but I can not imagine how much worse it could have been without Claudia's care, concern and guidance." ~Denise, private client
"Claudia not only is extremely dedicated and thorough but stands by your side with a lot of compassion. Her experience as both a pharmacist and caregiver makes her invaluable." ~Carol, private client
"Claudia, you undervalue your services. My daughter needs you and I thank you." ~Walter, father of a private client
"Thank you for all you do and have done for me, Claudia. I would have never survived without you!" ~Jeanne, private client
Let's face it. Western medicine has evolved leaps and bounds, yet most of us feel more lost in the weeds than our ancestors did. Yes, there are more options, more treatments, more devices, more bodies of scientific literature.
But there's also so much noise!
The media tells us A, the health guru on Instagram tells us B, and our doctor tells us C. We are left to figure out which of the options is more correct, or if option D, one we have not yet discovered, is our saving grace.
How can anyone find peace and clarity with such mixed messages?
I've been on both sides of the equation, as a clinician working in the trenches of healthcare and as the daughter of a cancer patient who was quickly becoming yet another statistic.
I refused to allow that to happen for my father and I similarly refuse to remain quiet as so many people swim alone in the muddy waters of the medical system.
You deserve a fighting chance, a voice, an opportunity to discover the healthiest version of yourself. And I'm here to help.
