Life Coach

Having a coach that is here with you in this moment, even virtually, can be life-changing. In a world filled with so much input and the unknown in front of us all, it is vital to learn how to stand firm and maintain a sense of self in order to connect to others authentically and experience joy and peace right here and right now.

I specialize in working with women who are feeling stuck during a transitional period of life. Whether facing the end of a relationship, a career or life change, a big decision or simply overwhelmed and unable to move forward, I can help you reconnect to your true self so that you can move forward.


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.

Time to Bloom

Equine Assisted Learning and Therapy

With a lifetime of learning and healing from past traumas, along with experience in the outdoors and learning from horses, it is an honor to journey alongside clients and support them them through this process of breaking unhealthy patterns affecting quality of life and relationships. Teaching presence and being present with clients is necessary in this process, with no agenda and no ego. This is an organic process involving minds, hearts and bodies.

“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.

Kelly was an excellent guide for me, helping me to understand why Summer did different movements, or why she didn’t. I was shown how differently she responded to me when I wasn’t doubting myself. I can’t put to words how insightful & wonderful it was. Summer & Kelly both were authentic & loving way-showers. 

I left my session feeling light, energized, totally wowed & grateful. Summer was so special to me yesterday. I have so much to learn by connecting to animals!! I hope this touches someone that is looking for support or a fresh perspective, and that you can find it with the horses & Kelly “ – Casie
