Guest Biography


Dr. Katie Eastman is a Grief, Loss and Transition Coach, a licensed psychotherapist and Medical Social Worker with extensive training in the field of Pastoral Psychology. Specializing in loss, traumatic loss and grief she supports individuals, families and communities before, during and after serious loss.

Dr. Katie attended Boston University School of Theology, The University of Houston School of Social Work Masters Program and acquired a Doctorate in Clinical Child Psychology from Antioch University. She has held a series of mental health-related positions working with children and families, culminating in work with seriously ill and dying children and adults and their caregivers. Most recently she has worked with suicidal teens, teen suicide survivors and bereaved parents. 

As a community engagement consultant, Dr. Katie has assisted groups and communities in developing collaborative strategies to prevent teen suicide and programs that offer support in the aftermath of this unique and increasingly common kind of tragedy. Forming a Suicide Prevention/ Mental Health Coalition in her own community, she engaged community stakeholders to collaborate, educate and engage people of all ages in promoting mental health as a fundamental aspect of wellness. The result has been greater access to mental health support and a significant reduction in the prevalence of teen deaths related to suicide. 

An engaging author and storyteller, Dr. Katie is known as an authentic force for good and love.

Guest Biography


Ksenia is a Los Angeles based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and a sound-healing practitioner.

The love song between Ksenia and music has been a lifelong journey. She began singing when she was six years old, and was writing songs on her guitar and performing at local festivals by the time she was thirteen. After a while, Ksenia took a break from music and moved to the United States. There she committed herself to a path of spiritual growth and healing. She trained and became a yoga teacher, a Reiki Master, and a bodyworker.

Five years ago, Ksenia was inspired to approach music again from the perspective of her new path. Music became another instrument through which to channel healing and inspiration for all the people Ksenia teaches and works with. The influence of her commitment to a yogic lifestyle and her deep connection with healing work transformed her relationship with sound by integrating her spiritual path with the music.

Today her songs weave together all the aspects of her life and heritage, by blending mantras, icaros, prayers and Russian folk music for a truly unique and inspiring sound. In 2018 she released her first single, “Atman”, which was followed in 2019 by her first album. Ksenia’s music channels inspiration, hope, peace, and strength to guide and support people on their life journeys. She has redefined the use of sound and mixed vibrations in her intention to spread the healing power of musical prayer.

Life Changes Show

Show Host

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
