Crystal Stokes’ life philosophy is centered on the work of REDEFINING FREEDOM, and with this, she empowers ambitious women to integrate their success with physical and psychological resilience and deep and nourishing relationships.

Having successfully worked as a psychotherapy and wellness counselor, consultant and coach in Silicon Valley and throughout Europe, Crystal makes resilience and confidence building simple and achievable.

She works almost exclusively with ambitious women who are ready to redefine freedom and take their life to the next level.

Through the power of psychology, nutrition, and fitness, Crystal equips ambitious women to embrace good old-fashioned self-exploration with her live workshops and retreats across the world.

With more ambitious women than ever before, Crystal believes the journey of redefining freedom is “truly a hero’s journey” and has worked to foster a community of ambitious women who are active creators in leveling up their health, relationships, and purpose in life.

Crystal currently lives in the paradise known as Santa Barbara, California where she practices exactly what she teaches: rejuvenating time in nature (hello ocean, mountains, and starry nights!), amazing farmer’s market meals, fulfilling and meaningful work, a hearty self-care and personal growth practice, and ample time with the people and animals she loves.



 My mission is to create a MOVEMENT. A movement of Ambitious Women who are determined to have freedom at every level, who won’t settle for less!

Crystal Stokes, M.A.
