Hey there Fellow Spoonie Buddies & Allied Friends,

You know, your mental health doesn't have to be damaged due to chronic illness!

Find love, leave pain, gain time, and activate your joy, all in spite of having pain and chronic illness!


You are in the exact right place if:

  • You have (or someone you know has) a chronic illness
  • You just can’t seem to deal
  • Your mental health is suffering
  • You feel like you are wasting your time in bed all the time
  • It's just not fair
  • It seems like it may never get better
  • You are so incredibly fearful of what comes next with your chronic illness


Deep Down Inside...

  • You want to release that pain
  • You need more energy
  • You value time out of bed and with your friends
  • You. Are. a FIGHTER! (Let's bring that to the forefront!)
  • You know that there has to be hope out there... and you want a pathway towards it.


What makes you great?

Having a chronic illness doesn't make you weak. Quite the contrary

Because you have something that could either make or break you, let's definitely MAKE YOU SHINE!

Who Am I?

KrisE Guest

Kristen E Guest, MDiv, LMSW, is a fighter and is answering a call. In the midst of many difficult storms in life, including living with - and battling against - a lifelong, debilitating autoimmune illness leaving her without much will previously, she was able to obtain two Master Degrees in theology and social work from Columbia University in NYC. As a licensed social worker/therapist by profession - working towards her clinical license -, she has also added Joy Coach and Speaker/Facilitator to her titles and list of activities. Why? Because Kristen knows a thing or two about Joy. Not just how to seek and journey towards it, but also how hard it can be to achieve in the midst of physical, mental, and emotional pain and struggle.

Kristen’s ultimate goal in life is to serve in a way that empowers others to activate joy for themselves. Kristen takes her mission seriously and carries it - along with empathy towards the wellness of others - wherever she goes, being led to serve those who may be a bit stagnant in their lives, careers, and even family systems, focusing more on the issue at hand, at which point they can figure out what success means to them and achieve it wholeheartedly.
