Feelings play a significant role in signaling us about our needs and the needs of others. But they are designed to be temporary. They roll in like the ocean tide, prompt us to take care of a need, resolve, and roll back out with the tide. They are not meant to be buried, unresolved.


“They [unresolved emotions] remain the source of our unresolved conflicts. Subconsciously, they are not forgotten nor will they be forgotten… They are the feelings which govern our thought patterns, our beliefs, and our attitudes. Those feelings determine our emotional reactions and our experiences in life. They are unconscious, hidden, and have been denied. Nevertheless, they are a part of our intra-cellular and subconscious programming.”

– Karol K. Truman, author of Feelings Buried Alive Never Die

It is those unresolved emotions, buried in our subconscious mind, that keep us stuck today.



When you get mentally or emotionally STUCK… 

where do you turn for help?


A close friend? A spouse? Maybe a mentor?


Maybe you’ve talked to a life coach, or spent countless hours in therapy. Maybe you’ve joined online support groups, hoping to feel understood and empowered. Or maybe you’ve looked to your church or a spiritual leader for some direction.


Did it help? Or do you still feel STUCK in these ways?… 


  • You still get sucked into your emotions — and other people’s.
  • You continue to feel misunderstood and destroyed by toxic relationships.
  • You can’t make a confident decision without second-guessing yourself. You still see all the angles to every situation and your brain won’t shut off and sometimes you just wonder things like…

Will I ever feel free to just be myself, without apology?

How can I relax?

What ARE my personal boundaries?

Is my life headed in the right direction?

Where do I fit and function best in this world?

It’s natural to feel overwhelmed in this crazy world. And if you happen to also be a mighty sensitive person, you just have MORE. More thoughts, more feels… the joy is brighter… the angst is darker… and your antennae are constantly taking it ALL in.


The problem is, we get swallowed up by it all. We get so overwhelmed with all of the data input and then we just get stuck.


Suddenly we find ourselves captive to anxious thoughts, bad habits, abusive relationships, and dark seasons… and we just feel paralyzed.


There is no moving forward.


Coaches, counselors, church leaders, mentors, and support groups can all be a part of the big picture for guidance and direction… but let’s face it. We are complex. Our brains are already spinning with hundreds of new ideas daily. We turn to these “helpers” only to have MORE random ideas added to our already-overworked think-tank.


What if there was a way to bypass the deliberating, the analyzing, and the overthinking and just zero in on the heart of the matter — actually resolve it?


Wouldn’t it be great if some little magical fairy workers could flutter into our brains, turn off some switches, sweep out the clutter, and simply re-wire a few things… so our thoughts and feelings couldn’t swallow us alive?

I have a big secret to share with you…

***I discovered the magical fairy workers!***

Okay… so maybe not fairies, exactly. But it does almost feel magical.


For years I kept hearing the Bible verse 2 Corinthians 10:5:

“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

Okay,” I thought. “Just take my thoughts captive! Be aware of them and reject the bad ones. Then they will obey Christ and I will be free from my struggles. Seems simple enough.”


So I started identifying my unhealthy thoughts and internal arguments that set themselves up against the knowledge of God… or what I knew to be good and true.


For me, a couple unhealthy thoughts were, “You’re not worth it,” and “You’re too selfish.” I told those thoughts to go obey Christ, who says I am most definitely worth it and that my needs are important!


Pastors, counselors, coaches, and mentors said this would work to get rid of those unhealthy patterns, because Jesus would do it.


Well… they were right about Jesus’ ability, and it was good for me to identify these patterns.


BUT, it didn’t work. I didn’t feel free. And I wasn’t able to move forward.


I think this is where a lot of us Christians get stuck. We can get really good at becoming cerebrally self-aware, but we act like that’s the whole cure. Just to KNOW what our problems are.


And then we say that we do these very vague and intangible things like “give it to Jesus” and “take our thoughts captive”… and sometimes we do get to see God miraculously take away a problem, temptation, or pattern.

But I found out that’s not the only way he works…

and I still didn’t have the tools I needed to help me truly change my brain.



Why doesn’t God just take away our problems? I don’t know, exactly. Maybe because it’s a fallen world and he wants to show his powerful work in our lives… And maybe God works through more than just ONE imperfect modality (like cognitive awareness, which we in Western culture are all so fond of).


The more diverse our redemption stories, the more glory he gets! And maybe… maybe he wants us to use these diverse modalities to love one another and help each other heal. Sometimes it benefits us just to talk through our issues, whether it’s with a friend or a professional.


But what some of us need most is to literally *reprogram* parts of our minds and emotions.


That was what I needed.

Aroma Breakthrough Coaching helped me take my thoughts captive.

You see, I could talk all day about “taking my thoughts captive,” but HOW was I actually doing that?


That cerebral version of “taking captive my thoughts” was akin to the “don’t think about a pink elephant” theory. (If someone tells you NOT to think about a pink elephant, what are you going to think about? …The pink elephant, of course!)


What I was REALLY doing was thinking MORE about my unhealthy beliefs, feeling super guilty about it, and then just stating that my problem was now “captive to Jesus.”


For whatever reason, that didn’t cut it for me.


My poor little HSP brain didn’t work that way.


The problems didn’t go away and I didn’t feel free.


I felt defeated.


And my brain followed suit.

The thing is, a cognitive/rational approach simply cannot reach the part of the brain where highly-charged emotions and memories keep us ATTACHED to unhealthy thought patterns.

I now understand that my mind and emotions had been programmed with decades of unhealthy thinking before I got to a place where I found myself with difficult struggles like… insecure attachment disregulation, acting passive-aggressive in relationships, feeling uneasy at the thought of “self-love,” abandoning myself to take care of others’ emotions, being stuck in a guilt-complex, lacking confidence, and having very weak boundaries.


These were some of the struggles that held me back from my potential… or even being able to believe in my God-given potential.


You have your own struggles, I’m sure. But the point is, we don’t just wake up one day with these types of problems. It takes YEARS of situations and events and memories to program stubborn beliefs about ourselves and the world… which is what ultimately leads to health issues, relationship issues, career struggles, and problems in every area of our lives.


The MYTH that most of us believe is that it has to take YEARS of coaching and/or therapy to unravel our mental/emotional problems and find freedom.

I’m here to shake up your thinking a little bit with some earth-shattering good news — it takes just a few minutes to bust apart these memory complexes and deprogram an unhealthy mindset!!!


If you’ve tried other coaching programs and still feel stuck in a rut… it’s no accident you found this page.


Aroma Breakthrough Coaching utilizes the Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT). This technique is not a hoax or new age or woo-woo-happy-thoughts. It is a brilliant, systematic combination of science and psychology that is helping people like you and me to break free from our emotional and mental blocks.


And move forward into the life we were created to live!!


Now I’m not saying that you may not ALSO find help from therapy, or a support group, or a friend’s shoulder to cry on. Definitely use all the resources available to you! (I personally have benefited from all of the above.)


But AFT is very unique and helps in a totally different way – by working directly with the limbic brain, which is the control center for our emotions and memories.


It’s my hope that every person who needs breakthrough can experience the fast, gentle, and permanent shift that happens with AFT, the technique I use with my clients.


I truly believe AFT is a gift from God to us. We inhale the aromatic life-juice (essential oils) from the plants he created on the third day. (Humans weren’t created until the sixth day. Think about that. In preparing the world for us, knowing what we would need… God created plants that could bring health to our brains and our bodies!)


AFT also integrates the methods of some of the most brilliant minds in psychology that God put on this earth.


And, AFT exposes our God-given intuition (which has always been trying to show you the way to your truest you).


It is this divinely-inspired combination that will inform your very personal Aroma Freedom experience.

Are you ready to finally have some direction and clarity?

Are you ready to take your next step into emotional freedom, and break free from beliefs and patterns you didn’t even realize were holding YOU captive?


Life coaching can be a great step to take. But you likely need some deprogramming AND reprogramming to happen on a cellular level in order to make a lasting change in how you relate to the world around you.


You also need a compassionate coach who will notice your subtleties and nuances, has a sharp intuition, is sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading, is filled with tenacious empathy, and is tuned in to what your higher self is saying. Someone who gently guides you into a position where you’re ABLE to receive a profound shift… that empowers you to drive your own process. This is my heart and it is how I function. :o)


You CAN have peace, regardless of circumstances.


You CAN overcome struggles that have held you back your entire life.


You CAN take captive those excessive thought.


You CAN rise… and you can shine. Just the way you were designed!

It’s time to turn the tables and claim your peace – specifically in those areas that have kept you stuck for far too long.



The Aroma Freedom Technique is is a step-by-step

process that I will walk you through.

As we go through the process, you’ll easily realize — and release — negative thoughts, feelings, and memories that interfere with reaching your intentions and goals.
We’ll set your emotional energy flowing in a positive direction, toward growth and expansion.

We’ll use the inhalation of specific essential oil blends to activate a permanent shift in how we view ourselves and the world.


IMPORTANT: Aroma Breakthrough Coaching is not a replacement for psychotherapy. And psychotherapy is in no way a replacement for Aroma Breakthrough. They are two different animals. Use each as needed…

Some important elements you’ll find exclusive to Aroma Breakthrough Coaching are…

AFT brings you to the root of your highly-charged emotions, and gently dissolves that link to your current situation.
You can share as much or as little as you want, and the process still works
We use a free, easy-to-use video chat app (Zoom) for online sessions.
We let the essential oils do the hard work. Because Young Living EO molecules are so tiny, they’re able to travel to our limbic brain / amygdala and do a reset.
Your mind is able to work at its highest potential, and people often overcome obstacles in one session that might otherwise take 50 sessions in other modalities.
Our essential oils have been carefully researched and blended for optimal emotional transformation.
You can have clarity and confidence about where you “end” and where others “begin” (ahem… boundaries).
You can feel content with who you are, regardless of others’ perceptions.
You can have confidence in your decisions and life choices, even when you see all the other angles.

What Rise & Shine Aroma Freedom clients are saying…

“Thank you — it was so freeing! I have definitely been more calm and relaxed to the point where others are pointing it out and I find my affirmation randomly popping into my head thru out the day.” — C.H.

“It’s definitely helping!!” — J.J.
“Kati helped me through so, so much during our session and beyond. I was dealing with extreme anxiety and feeling really overwhelmed with life that it would cause me physical pain in my heart. I didn’t realize how much pent up emotion and hurt feeling I was holding onto from the past until she walked me through them. I can honestly say I can breathe now.” — H.W.

“Wanted to share… I wake sometimes in middle night/early morning with PTSD. Raising heart rate and anxiety. Sometimes intense shame. This week I started saying my affirmation as soon as I’m awakened and it happens. I calm down immediately!! It is helping!! — E.R.

Let’s get you FREE! It would be my joy and privilege to hold your hand through this process.

If you’re a mighty sensitive, you’re all too familiar with the GIANT (and let’s face it — at times, invasive) role that emotions play in your life.


Investing in your emotional health is not just “a good thing to do.” It can literally turn your life around. Especially when you’re dealing directly with the emotional root that is keeping you stuck!


Highly sensitive or not, many people spend decades — and a fortune — exhausting themselves, trying to figure out a logical way to get relief from their emotional turmoil. Aroma Breakthrough Coaching offers a better way to FINALLY get to a place of freedom, without having to waste years of your life — or spend your life savings.
