I WAS JUST LIKE YOU.

I was lost in my thoughts, frustrated, and feeling stuck. It felt like my quality of life was deteriorating… and nothing was helping.

I talked to people about my challenges with my health but they didn't understand where I was coming from, and it felt like some didn't even believe that my struggles were real. So then I questioned if it was real too.

I WANTED TO FEEL BETTER, BUT HOW?

I researched, I sought out professionals, and I felt like I had tried “everything”…

But nothing worked.

Then I was lucky enough to go to the Mayo Clinic and learn about the mind-body connection. The interplay of mindset and physiology. How practicing mindfulness and working on my mindset could actually help relieve my physical symptoms.

I know what you’re thinking… you can’t “think yourself well”.

Believe me, I get it!

And yet, what I was taught there really clicked. Like how breathing exercises can calm butterflies when you’re nervous. And holding yourself in a tense way can heighten symptoms (like a toothache). Or in my case, because of my lax joints I tensed my back muscles for years which ended up causing my spine to be “too” straight.

IT ALL MADE SENSE, DESPITE TRYING EVERYTHING TO BE BETTER, I WAS MAKING IT WORSE.

And then I attended a mindfulness retreat, and my eyes were opened.

I learned how to choose how and where to direct my thoughts. That I could decide how I wanted to show up despite my health issues. Mind blown!

My dream was to release all of the mental baggage and just be happy in the moment with all the wonderful things in my life. To feel better, both mentally and physically. To choose how to show up. To feel like myself again, a better version of myself. To let my soul shine!

I WAS JUST LIKE YOU.

And now I'm a coach. I'm working with people like you to help them feel better in their own skin. I'm sharing the lessons I’ve learned to help people find their way, guiding them to discover the goals they didn’t know they had and to plot a course to reach them. I created the thing that I wish existed. I'm on my journey, letting my soul shine!

Are you ready for your journey? Are you ready to feel better? Let’s let your soul shine!

MEET KELLY

I'm a New Yorker in Denver living with my husband Joe, daughter Lily, and pups Rogue & Ranger.

We love spending time in the mountains, playing games with friends, and traveling (I've been to 41 countries!).

Before my health issues I used to be an athlete. Now I have Rogue as my service pup, I bring my cane (Candy the Cane) with me wherever I go, and we still travel! We travel differently, but we still travel :)

HOW DO YOU WANT TO FEEL?

I remember being asked in a coaching session “how do you want to feel”? And I was floored… I don’t get to choose, my body just does what it wants!

Well, in coaching you get to CHOOSE how you want to FEEL! And it’s my job to help you get there.

connect

Are you ready for your journey?

Are you ready to feel better?

Let’s let your soul shine!

By connecting what is going on in my mind to my body, I’m able to take back control of my pain and stress levels, find my centered breathing and accept any pain without judgement. I feel stronger, freer, and acutely more aware of the connection between mind, body, breathing, and pain. I’m so grateful for Kelly’s powerful coaching to help managing my chronic pain and stress levels – I can take these tools she’s given me and move forward to continually take care of my body and mind.
