Unbridled Connection was created in response to a calling to passionately pursue healing with a concentration on teaching heart-centered awareness through the PIE principle, (presence, intention and energy).

Kelly brings 25 years of experience connecting humans to their life force and vitality through a combination of experiential modalities including mindfulness, somatic experiencing and equine assisted learning. Her nature-based approach lends a sense of safety and support, actively listening and observing subtle and powerful feedback from clients, in order to successfully move through stuck energy within the body. This is sacred work, weaving mind, body and spirit together once again, to bring the incredible human system online completely, opening up a whole new way of experiencing life, with awakened senses and an empowered sense of clarity and calm.


Mindfulness is defined as actively seeking an awareness of the present moment and acknowledging physical sensations, current feelings and emotions. Heart-Centered Awareness is waking up from a robotic state and fully engaging in the here and now. This is practicing the very vital bridge between mind and body, and the results happen quickly and the changes are long lasting. Patterns are recognized and intentionally shifted for healthier relationships and better quality of life. Enjoy emotional and physical healing by learning presence and experiencing connection to your true self.

Here is a story published in Equine Leadership, that Kelly wrote about a remarkable young woman healing from a traumatic brain injury.

And here is a link to Kelly’s latest article published in 2024, in the 9th Edition of Equine Leadership entitled “Simplification and Love”.

Somatic Experiencing – Experiential Learning

Essentially through intentional grounding, creating safety within the body and nervous system, Kelly guides clients through the process of safely moving through stuck patterns within the body resulting from old injuries and/or events that are disrupting the ability to live an uninterrupted life. Over time these stuck “energies” can cause chronic illness, social anxiety, depression, fear, guilt, shame, addictions, insomnia, gastrointestinal issues and a host of other unhealthy coping mechanisms. This work is sacred and weaves together the healing of mind, body and spirit to restore life force and vitality, living in a sense of calm awareness.

“SE is a body-oriented modality that helps heal trauma and other stress disorders. Developed by Peter Levine, Ph.D., it is the result of the multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, with more than 45 years of successful application.” – Somatic Experiencing International


“The Somatic Experiencing approach facilitates the completion of self-protective motor responses and the release of thwarted survival energy bound in the body, thus addressing the root cause of trauma symptoms. This is approached by gently guiding clients to develop increasing tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.” – Somatic Experiencing International

“Yesterday I received the gentlest, and most authentic healing session with Kelly and her horse Summer.  I am amazed at what I was shown by the sweetest spirit, Summer. I gained a different level of presence in my time with her, of being in my body, and having my brain online too. I easily get caught up in my thoughts in life- like most people. Horses are so amazing.” – Casie
