LET'S BE REAL:
NOT ALL COACHES WALK THE WALK LIKE I DO.
We're not just playing around with feel good clichés and inspirational trends. This is where your gifts meet intuition, and a blend of evidence-based practices to yield REAL results.
There's lots of great coaches out there and there's lots of great therapists. I just so happen to be both :)
I'm a Licensed Therapist (IN) and Nationally Certified Counselor, with 5 years of counseling experience. I bring you the energy and accountability of a coach, with the trauma-informed and nurturing care of a counselor.
I've also personally transformed my entire life in the process. I've lived a lot of life in my 3 decades on earth. If you have a problem, I'm confident we can solve it together!
you're in luck!
HOW WE GOT HERE
You wouldn't recognize 2016 Kelsee. I know, because I can hardly recognize her myself.
She was sweet and smart, funny without trying, and incredibly intuitive. Except...she didn't know it.
She lived her life packed inside of a tiny, glass box. An accomplished people-pleaser and master chameleon, she derived all of her self-worth from being a meek version of herself that others would approve of; afraid that any move towards authenticity might shatter the sides...and her life as she knew it.
She did all the "right" things: married her high school boyfriend, was involved in a church, was attending the top private masters program for her field in her state, and rarely experienced any kind of conflict....
Until she flipped EVERYTHING on its head.
the good the hard and the ugly
By age 25 I left the church and religion altogether. Ended my high school sweetheart marriage. Quit nearly 3 years of veganism. And buried my dad after a long cancer battle.
2 years later I had quit my toxic-dream-job in Education and became an entrepreneur from scratch- launching my own mental health counseling practice.
Some might refer to it as a quarter-life-crisis. But I call it a quarter-life-comeback.
Through long solo hikes and backpacking trips, a summer living in the back of my car out west, learning to ride a bike, I gained enough confidence to look at myself honestly in the mirror and lean into who I always knew I could be. I regained the ability to feel my pulse, listen to my gut, and truly trust my heart.
It's called a comeback because I finally came back home to myself. And things were never the same.
I traded in the people-pleasing for a back-bone and starting living out a true sense of self-worth.
I began to put my money where my mouth was and invested in my growth in big ways, starting with hiring my first coach. It was a scary decision. I signed up for the most generous payment plan she offered, to pay off that $5,500 investment.
I was pushed and challenged and loved to a whole new level. Gaining clarity on my values, finding my voice, tapping into my intuition and trusting myself like never before. Increasing my confidence and self-worth, and making decisions out of peace, not fear.
My business grew and it grew FAST. I made that investment back easily, not just financially but in numerous ways that cannot be quantified by a dollar sign. The return on that scary investment confirmed what I had been slowly learning over the last few years — I could trust myself.
Sometimes we just need a support person, with a different vantage point to help us see the greatness that we already have within.
oh hey, that's me!
Over the last 7 years I’ve grown into a confident, authentic, fully alive and totally imperfect human. I’ve built a successful business, developed healthy relationships, and have cultivated an aligned life that I am excited to live. I've launched podcasts and courses, hosted community events, started new hobbies, and have explored the country.
But don't miss this part: this is about something so much bigger than me living my best life. Authenticity is a universal need. I believe that the more of us who can live our truest lives, the healthier the world as a collective will be. I want you to experience this same kind of freedom too!
I have made MANY mistakes on my journey. I didn't exactly have an atlas telling me where to go. It's been messy, scary, and uncertain at times. I've gotten very acquainted with "failure" and revisiting the drawing board. I've cried and cussed, hidden under the covers, stumbled...and even face-planted many times.
But here's the thing: I've learned from every face-plant that there really is no Plan B — only an ever-evolving Plan A.
I decided long ago that it literally wasn't possible to ruin my life. And it's my mission to empower you to see the same.
With me as your coach, be prepared to get curious and compassionate with yourself. To have a lot of fun experimenting, and to fully access your inner hype-woman! Tap into a powerful blend of: gentle-healing meets next-level accountability.
You’ll quickly heal from the past, learn skills and tools to create a life you're proud of, and live adventurously along the way.
This is where your own comeback story begins.
