PSST... I'LL LET YOU IN ON A LITTLE SECRET...

YOU DON'T NEED A BUSINESS DEGREE TO RUN A SUCCESSFUL SOLO PRACTICE. 

Visualize the kind of work-life balance you want. 

No really, take a sec and do it.

You are living a work-life you're proud of that represents your values. You're healthy and inspired. Totally YOU. You're making the kind of meaningful impact you've dreamt of...not just inside the therapy office, but outside of it too, engaging and present with the people who matter the most to you.

 

You're working your desired hours, able to afford vacations, investing back into yourself. Your caseload is full of your favorite clients, and you have complete creative freedom. 

 

You love your boss....and the boss is YOU. 

 

Its a nice daydream, but its not quite reality yet...

 

You want to work for yourself, but the numbers just aren't adding up. You can't imagine doing this work at this pace for another 20 years. You resent your grad program for not preparing you for the world of entrepreneurship.

 

Your 10 minutes between sessions are spent dissociated and researching affordable MBA programs. 

 

Friend, hear me when I say: You don't need a business degree to run a successful solo practice. You have the potential, you have the knowing, you have the (highly transferrable) skills. What you need is a guide to help unleash the inner-entrepreneur inside of you, equipped with a toolbox of skills and strategies. 

And that's where I come in. I've been exactly where you are, daydreaming about therapy-freedom too.

 

We'll do this thing together. 

What 

YOU DO NEED

is...

Curiosity and adaptability

 

A willingness to try, fail, and try again

A belief in yourself + your unique mission 

The courage to be both seen and heard

A solid work-ethic

A little bit of basic business knowledge / skills

And an enthusiastic support system 

...This is where I come in!

YOUR MENTAL HEALTH
BUSINESS GUIDE

Hemlock-Illustration-16.png

I’m a midwest gal who created her dream counseling career from scratch. I'm equal parts gentle + honest, and absolutely enthralled by the intersection where business-meets-clinical. 

I once said I'd never be a business owner. Now, I can't imagine ever working for someone else again! 

 

My coaching style, informed by my experience as educator, will equip you to become the expert of your own business. 

Propelling counselors who are in the "in-between" career stage into actualizing their solo practice dreams is my JAM! 

I stepped into the role of business coach in 2022, not because I planned to...but because I was frequently asked to, by counselors nationwide!

After consistently being solicited for coffee-date business coaching by so many therapists, I knew it was time to take this support to the next level...

TO THE RESTLESS COUNSELOR WHO FEELS CONFINED TO 1:1 DIRECT SERVICES,

I'LL HELP YOU 
DIVERSIFY YOUR OFFERINGS AND LET YOUR CREATIVITY SHINE!

You don't have to settle for just counseling all day every day. It's time to bring those passion projects to life and add a little spice to your biz!

I bet you have a specialty that could be turned into a digital course. 

 

Or a story that's ready to be published. 

Your friends are still begging you to start a podcast, aren't they? 

The truth is, I've done all three.

 

Self-publishing, producing, and creating are just SOME of the many ways you can diversify your offerings. 

 

I know what it takes to get those special projects rolling so that you don't have to rely completely on counseling to pay your bills.  The number one benefit of diversifying: It protects us from burn out. Let me show you how!!!

"When I started my own practice, it was in the sunlight of Kelsee's energy where I realized all of the things that were also possible for myself. I'm truly grateful for meeting her and for the privilege of picking her brain. Kelsee is creative, dedicated, and a natural teacher! She is exactly the kind of person who can meet a client where they are, help them articulate their goals, and build a path to achieve them. When it comes to coaching, you should look for someone who inspires you and ask them how they got there —and Kelsee inspires me, personally. I'm certain that if you're on her website, maybe her energy has drawn you in as well. I believe you'll be in excellent hands with her coaching services, and it's a great investment in yourself and your personal goals."

"When I started my journey into implementing Walk and Talk as a modality I knew that I wanted someone that could meet me where I was and help me find actionable steps towards adding a new service. Kelsee far exceeded my expectations in our coaching session. She met all my questions with understanding and kindness. Her instructions were both thorough and clear. I left with all my questions answered and with additional resources. I went into my walk and talk sessions with more confidence and preparedness. I'm so glad that I chose to invest in a coaching session with Kelsee. It was worth it."

Her empathic approach is at a premium level as she holds space and empowers you to grow! The dedication and drive she has toward helping individuals, students, businesses, and the community thrive are unparalleled, altruistic!

With Kelsee, you will develop a meaningful connection, explore, discover, and align your work with your values. What distinguishes Kelsee is her authentic embodiment of the principles she teaches, making her coaching uniquely impactful. With her guidance, you can confidently navigate your needs, knowing the value extends far beyond monetary gains. Do yourself a favor and schedule a clarity call with her today!"

"When Kelsee shared with me that she was going to pursue coaching, it felt like a true lightbulb moment. She displays every quality I'd want in a coach. She 'talks the talk' and 'walks the walk.' The quality I most admire in Kelsee is her ability to observe and analyze what her clients need and reflect on how she can professionally pivot to meet each and every client where they are. This is rare in the helping profession and shows how dedicated she is in providing the best care. If you choose to work with Kelsee, you are choosing a deeply compassionate, holistic, and effective partnership."

"Not only has Kelsee built a six-figure business but she didn't lose herself in the process. So many business owners create something that feels more like a cage than freedom and lose sight of why they wanted to build a business in the first place. Kelsee truly practices what she preaches and holds space for you to figure out what works for YOU. Not just what worked for her. She truly is one of a kind and you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who cares more than she does. If any part of you is thinking about working with her, follow that nudge"
