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.

When I first started my life coaching practice, I intentionally named my practice Safe Space Life Coaching. Being able to hold space for people who are suffering, struggling, grieving, and deeply desiring to be more at peace in their lives is an honor—one that I never forget. When people hire me, they choose to enter into a pact where I will hold space for them to actively melt down in order to build their lives anew. Creating a safe space for others is an ongoing, intentional practice for me.

Recently, while working out, I was approached by a very kind man at the YMCA. He asked me if I celebrated Valentine’s Day. I said that Kim and I celebrate it in our own way, which could change from year to year. He appeared to be asking me what I thought his wife would want. To be clear, I don’t know his wife. I have never met his wife, let alone have a conversation with her about her desires and expectations for Valentine’s Day. I suggested that maybe he chat with his wife about if and how she wanted to celebrate this cultural and yet commercial holiday of romance. His response surprised me.

My partner, Kim, requires a decent amount of sleep to function well. Personally, I do much better on days when I choose to meditate in the morning. When we travel and we are driving, Kim prefers to be the driver and I prefer that she drive, even though I am a perfectly competent driver. Kim has a more difficult time simply being a passenger than I do. Therefore, to keep us both sane when we are in the car together, she is the primary driver. Also, we both tend to feel more comfortable when we eat a balanced diet and listen to our bodies.
