I work with individuals and teams to increase their clarity, create awareness, understand communication and conflict in a deeper way and create positive, self driven outcomes. 

Life Design |  I work with people who are at crossroads and transitions. In our sessions together we explore what clients really want to create in their lives and then create a plan to get there. I have a special interest in inner critics + imposter syndrome, rest, values, and am trained and work with a strength and solution focus.  

Building Positive Culture | The culture in organizations has a huge influence on employee happiness and retention. I work with organizations, charities and teams to create a positive culture through learning and experiences based in values, communication, training in conflict and emotional intelligence.

I whole-heartedly love my work.

Kelly has a true gift for coaching and facilitation. I've had the pleasure of working with her in both personal and professional settings, and not only does she absolutely shine, but most importantly, she gives her clients the space to learn and to shine. She brings insightful and useful exercises and tools to the table. Thank you Kelly!"

Kelly helped me reconnect with my inner wise woman to uncover what was truly important to me when making a tough decision. Now, I have a clear vision of my ideal life and am taking steps to achieve it. I feel more optimistic than ever before thanks to Kelly’s collaborative and supportive approach.”

Jenny Spurr, PR Pro + Mama to Jackson

Kelly is both deeply curious and sharply insightful, about people, teams, and the world around us.  Her pointed questions are softened by sincere care.  Like oysters needing sand to create pearls, Kelly introduced just enough tension to help me grow, allowing potentially uncomfortable truths to reveal themselves as the jewels of wisdom they are.
