Nothing Is Wrong With You

Reading Time: 9 minutes

I wrote these words for my community of letter subscribers recently, and I’m sharing them here now, because womxn told me they needed to hear it.

Do you ever wonder if you’re OK? Do you ever think or feel like something is wrong with you?

This used to be one of my patterns of thinking, a trauma adaptation and a product of the subconscious belief that I was broken. Through my personal healing and my work with other healing womxn, I came to know that I was not alone. Womxn breathe the air of our patriarchal culture, which programs us to question our bodies, our feelings, our thoughts, our Selves. We’re conditioned to question our OK-ness in other ways, too. […]

How Do You Decide?

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Our family had an important decision to make this week. For the first time in a long time, I struggled to connect with what felt good and right for me and my family.

Despite the challenge, there were nuggets of goodness in this process. One was the reminder of my continuous evolution. I realized the uncomfortable sensations and feelings that accompanied this process, while distantly familiar, are no longer an everyday thing. For me, the “Big D” feelings that understandably come with Big D (or seemingly life-altering) decisions plagued me even with inconsequential decisions. Another nugget of goodness was the opportunity to take a coaching approach with myself. After some time spinning my […]

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

Reading Time: 4 minutes

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 […]

Coaching & Healing: What I Do and What I Don’t Do

Reading Time: 11 minutes

My husband trades energy. I remember feeling confused and intrigued when I first learned about his job. I found it difficult to grasp the idea of buying and selling things that don’t actually exist, especially because I’d immersed myself in the realm of health psychology, not economics or finance. He explained it to me in English, of course, but to me the language of his work was a foreign language that I struggled to comprehend.

I think this happens with my work sometimes. When I talk to people who don’t have experience with coaching and healing, the language I use to describe it may, indeed, feel like a foreign language. I […]

2020: Taking up space, your theme, and a free workbook.

Reading Time: 13 minutes

I remember trying to make myself smaller in various ways throughout my youth. At sixteen years old, this meant making myself thinner. I never intended to take up so little space, but my brain became addicted to the drug that is starvation. And later in my adult life, despite trying to gain weight, Lyme disease robbed my pancreas of enzyme production and thwarted my efforts. While I’ve healed through both challenges, I’ve recently come to understand that this theme still permeates my life, albeit in different ways.

I’ve been addressing the foundations of healing for years. Only recently, after […]

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 […]

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 […]
