MY STORY

Hi, I'm Kelly!

Certified Equine Gestalt Coach, Horsewoman, Herbalist, Horticulturist and Tender of all things Wild.

Always a nature lover, I find myself most at home in the presence of the simple things: animals, plants, water and forests. These are the places I sought comfort as a child and continue to do so to this day. In fact, I've made many of the most important decisions of my life in the presence of something wild. Most often...a Horse.

My relationship with horses started at a young age. As a kid, I would sneak into a farmers field and watch his horses graze for hours. Through middle and high school I was a trail guide for a local riding ranch. And in my early 20's I finally found my own horse, VisionQuest. 

That sweet horse taught me countless life lessons. In his presence I was able to sort out the details of a day, renew my creativity and find inspiration in the simplicity of life.

 

Time spent with my horse allowed me to tap into the deepest parts of myself and live entirely in the moment. Most importantly, Quest taught me how to love with my whole heart and how to gracefully let go.

Later in life, I found myself caught up in the hustle of life. I became highly aware of the same questions coursing through my mind, "What's important to me?", " How can I take better care of myself?" and maybe even more importantly "What do I want out of this life?" These questions played on a loop. Over and over. And begged the real question, "had I lost my way?".

During this time, I also found that I couldn't truly relax, EVER. I was extremely hypervigilant in all areas of my life. My past haunting my subconscious and not allowing me to ever truly touch down. The belief that a "body in motion" could dictate my worth or keep me safe was exhausting. I was in fight or flight ALL THE TIME! I couldn't breath.

The only thing that ever slowed me down or allowed me to take a breath was my time spent with my horses or when I tuned in to nature as my guide.

 

I realized that my time spent in nature or with my horses reset my nervous system and gave me a true sense of calm. It allowed me to tap into my creativity and to truly connect with my intuition.

 

It also gave me new questions to ask of myself, What could I do to make a difference?? To share my experiences? To help connect people to animals and the magic of the natural world?

Luckily, I found my answer, and again, it was through the eyes of a horse and the guidance of an Equine Gestalt Coach. The perspective I gained from that experience helped me answer my questions, renew my spirit and gave me the inspiration to help others achieve that same clarity. ​

My goal is to give clients the opportunity to slow down and ground themselves in the natural beauty around them. To re-connect with a true sense of self, a value based life and a full heart.  Allowing the horses and I to guide them through a transformative Equine Gestalt Coaching experience as well as introducing them to the healing powers of nature. Opening their hearts, soothing their mind and awakening their spirit. 

I believe that it's never too late to find yourself. To truly know yourself and to flourish. And maybe, just maybe, it will be through the eyes of a horse and in the presence of natures wild beauty.
