I approach you as the person you are. You are you, before you were a mother, a CEO, a sister, an athlete, a hiker, a backpacker, a dog mom, whatever your labels. I focus on the person beneath the identities. When we strengthen her, all the identities become the best version of themselves. Whether you’re joining a retreat or doing one-on-one Mental Performance Coaching we will peel back the labels and find what your power is. Confidence is learned. Strong is felt. Stress is melted. Empowerment is mastered. 

You can become the leader you have always envisioned for yourself, but first. Calm the f*ck down.

Hi I'm Karina

I started my Mental Performance Coaching (MPC) journey at Florida State University working with collegiate athletes, coaching them on confidence, motivation, and optimal performance.  I followed this by 3 years working with the US Army as a Mental Performance Coach for soldiers. 

I coached thousands of soldiers and hundreds of units on how to become highly effective communicators, resilient, productive, and effective problem solvers.  But you know what this job was missing? Looking at these soldiers as humans first. It was my job to teach these people to become effective soldiers–not effective people. I wanted to teach them how to connect with themselves, with nature, and the world around them. I added Yoga Teacher Certification to my list of credentials in order to incorporate the mind AND body alike. This rounded out all the fields that make up True Adventure Collective now.

My Mental Performance Coaching technique is rooted in tried and true psychological theories (we’re talkin’ real ass science) to help you get off this stressful hamster wheel so you can finally reach the success, freedom, and clarity you’re craving. Let me teach you the tools taken from successful people and spin them for your own success.

PS you're my type of person if you love getting your ass handed to you by Mother Nature.

Adventure + Yoga Retreats 

A retreat allows you to fully immerse yourself, and give yourself the time away from the chaos of like to calm the f*ck down. Spend a week reconnecting with yourself, nature, and other like-minded women. As a leader in your business, you tell your team to take breaks, and let their PTO be truly time off so they come back refreshed and ready to hit the ground running. When was the last time you gave yourself that same permission? As the CEO, or leader in your career, you hold yourself to a higher standard, to work harder, spent more time, and be more dedicated than your employees. But in order to do that, you need to reconnect with yourself. On each retreat the adventure will physically challenge you. The yoga classes will help you slow down and get back into your body, reconnecting your mind and body. The Mental Skills will teach you the skills to build your Mental Toughness. 

This is taking Mental Performance Coaching to the next level.


This is the only Mental Performance Coaching Program that takes decades of research-backed theories, like Self-Determination theory guaranteeing self-motivation, the Sources of Confidence to conquer your mindset, or discovering your specific leadership style and combines them to conquer your adventures. This program makes them digestible and relevant. Mountain Mentality is the ONLY program that not only teaches you mental skills to rewire your brain, but it also empowers you to think like the highly effective leader you are. This is the perfect program for you if you're in dire need to calm the f*ck down and be able to still scale your business to the empire you've always wanted.
