More on Free Thinking: Questioning with Empathy and Compassion

Reading Time: 9 minutes

I’m an empath who’s still learning to find my edge. Empathy and sensitivity are superpowers when wielded well, but this superpower can feel like a heavy weight when I’m unclear about  where I end and others begin. Boundaries are essential.

I’ve been feeling this weight a lot lately, which is a signal for me to return to myself. One way I do this is through journaling and writing. Putting words on paper creates space for my truth and my edge to emerge. One of my readers gave me some touching feedback this week—she told me to keep writing; that the world needs to hear what I have to say. I hope that when […]

Delivered to My Healing

I love this picture of my mom and me.

When I was younger, this photo reminded me that my mom was not only my mom. I could glimpse her as a daughter, a sister, a wife, a friend, a co-worker, and a woman with experiences, feelings, needs, and interests of her own, independent of me. I was in awe of this and of her.

My mom always laughed when she talked to her best friend. She still does. When I was young, this felt like another glimpse into my mom as not only my mom. She was someone else, too. And that felt good. I felt her laughter in […]

Three Important Things I’m Still Learning

Reading Time: 7 minutes

I’m still learning how to be who I know I am.

There was a time when I was disconnected from my essence. I was trying to find myself, although I wasn’t lost. Rather, I was yearning to re-member myself. I was, quite literally, trying to reconnect all the parts of me to each other. Healing has called for increasing levels of self-awareness, and this self-awareness has, in turn, offered the deep healing of remembering myself, even as I evolve through space and time. And yet, I’m still learning how to be who I know I am in a culture that has often asked me to be […]

What is Revolutionary Healing?

Reading Time: 8 minutes

I’m passionate about revolutionizing healing for women. If you read my first two blog posts, which share my story and my healing journey, you already know why that is. But you might not know what revolutionary healing looks like.

Ultimately, I believe revolutionary healing is born from a fundamental shift in the way we connect with ourselves, others, and the world. This kind of healing is not just for people who are sick. Healing is for everyone. We’re all capable of healing, or strengthening our wholeness, through every challenge or good thing that comes our way. Everyone’s healing looks different, yet, I know […]

How I Heal

Reading Time: 8 minutes

If you read Where It All Began, you may see, as I do, that the good and the hard things in my life have been delivering me to this work for myself and others. I took what initially felt like a few detours along the way, and I stumbled (and righted myself) too many times to count. But, in doing so, I’m learning to strengthen my wholeness and embrace myself as my own healer. And, I’m learning how I can serve others on their own healing journeys as well.

Healing is just that – a continuous, non-linear journey. I’ll admit that when I received my Lyme diagnosis in 2014, after […]

Where It All Began

Reading Time: 10 minutes

Hi, I’m Kellie! I’m here because I’m passionate about meaningful connections, revolutionary healing, and authentic service. My passions are a reflection of both my life-long interest in psychology, humanity, and health as well as my own journey healing through chronic physical and emotional illness. This work is not just what I do; it’s a reflection of who I am.

I’ve been healing and cultivating connections throughout much of my life. I’ve always been fascinated by the mind, and I sought to understand myself and others more deeply even at a young age. I remember filling out my first Myers-Briggs Type Indicator the summer after sixth grade – my friend’s […]
