Nancy Kalina - Safe Space Life Coaching

I invite you to . . .

Take a break from your day to day life.


Remember who you authentically are.

We live our lives surrounded by an invasion of the external world. There are always decisions to be made, daily demands, and pressures from the constant commotion that is life in the 21st century. We take little time for ourselves. We don’t necessarily spend time with our inner thoughts, yearnings and hankerings that come from within us. We may even feel frustrated, feel like life is not flowing and not know why we are frustrated or why life feels like a struggle.

It’s possible that the still small voice within you holds the keys.

Safe Space life coaching is exactly that, a safe space for you to remember who you are and all that you can be.

I act as a guide to help re-introduce you to your personal navigation system. It is within this relationship with your essential self that your journey toward wellness, energy, and living your best life can begin.

At times like these, we all search for answers and want to understand. Trying to find answers is logical. I searched for a long time for answers after my father was murdered in 2006. However, the answers I received did not make me feel any better. Nor did they bring him back.

Theodore Roosevelt once stated, “The existence of any method, standard, custom or practice is no reason for its continuance when a better is offered.” I couldn’t agree more with Roosevelt’s thoughts here. However, I am also keenly aware that to question the status quo, let alone buck the system, takes a tremendous amount of courage and gumption.

Recently, I was in a situation that took me by surprise. A person I coached and also saw as an acquaintance was hurt terribly by an interaction that we had in public when I crossed a boundary unbeknownst to me. This person alerted me to this the next day in a number of emails. While I was shocked, I responded in a way that I thought was respectful: I apologized, owned my behavior, and offered to meet face to face to resolve the issue. This person refused to meet face to face, as he/she did not feel comfortable meeting.
