Client Testimonials

In Their Own Words

“When you stop pushing, THAT’S when the magic happens.”

“Working with Kelsey has truly been transformative. While our collaboration is focused on career, I find Kelsey to be an invaluable confidante and coach as it relates to my personal relationships, values, spirituality, and health. In the career realm, her perspective runs the gamut – she has rich and actionable insights on career growth, office politics, gender issues, and much much more. Most recently, she coached me with expert dexterity through an incredibly complex consideration process with a new company – with the most successful result! Without Kelsey’s help and support, I can say without hesitation the outcome would have been very different. I’m immensely grateful for all that Kelsey has done to help me steer down a different path, vs. the comfortable but far less fruitful one that had been my default. Kelsey is the combination of innumerable valuable and inspiring facets. As a bonus, she’s an extraordinary marketer/business leader so her counsel is truly “from the trenches.” She is a true partner in all the ways that count.”

“I sought out acupuncture treatment towards the end of my pregnancy. It was very important to me to have a natural birth, and I knew induction with Pitocin or other drugs was a slippery slope to a host of other interventions. I had read evidence that acupuncture in the final weeks could naturally induce labor. Based on the recommendation of my birth coach, I scheduled an appointment with Kelsey. She immediately helped me to feel comfortable and reassured– I had gestational hypertension and was very worried my Ob/gyn would decide I needed to be induced! In one session, Kelsey helped bring my BP down to normal (as well as my anxiety level!) After several consecutive sessions, Kelsey helped bring my labor along, just 5 days after my due date. I absolutely attribute my natural, unmediated, healthy birth experience in part to Kelsey’s guidance, support, and confidence. She is a warm and wonderful doctor and teacher, and I am so grateful for her!”

“When I started coaching with Kelsey, I knew I wanted to be doing something different–in my personal life and career–but I felt stuck. In some ways, I knew what I wanted to do but had a hard time making the necessary changes. I have been toying with moving back to the West Coast after 20 years in NYC, but fear and the need for security and predictability was holding me back. Through our coaching, it was helpful to stop and assess if I was being “pushed” or “pulled” in making decisions and to stop doing things that I felt like I “should” do instead of making choices based on what I really want to achieve in life. I don’t know 100% what the future holds, but I am now more open to the possibilities and am excited to move next year and start a new chapter of my life. I liked that Kelsey is approachable and balances spirituality with action-oriented suggestions.”

Krista G, New York City, NY

“When I started talking to Kelsey I felt “stuck” both personally and professionally and I wanted some fresh ideas and perspectives. What I got was much more than I was hoping for. Kelsey has a very rare combination of intelligence and intuition. She is sharp, professional, and grounded, and at the same time, she is genuinely empathetic and caring. She asks great questions and challenged me to find the answers myself. She has amazing energy and I always felt more positive, directed, and hopeful after our sessions.”

Don W, San Francisco, CA

“Kelsey has an amazing ability to guide you to tap into your greatest strengths so that you can learn to manage your life to the fullest potential. I am an independent worker with no boss- before I worked with Kelsey I could not start projects and carry them through to fruition. I was insecure about my abilities. Kelsey helps me remove the blockages that I form myself, and find new patterns of working that bring out the best of my abilities and values. Her skills are multiple- practical (computer help), spiritual (tapping into your true strengths and passions), bodily (feeling positive about ourselves, intellectual (where we stop ourselves), and overall, inspirational. What a kind, capable, solid, compassionate woman! I couldn’t ask for a better life coach.”

Lisa F, Palm City, FL

“When I first started working with Kelsey I wasn’t sure what exactly I was trying to figure out in my life, but I knew that there was something missing. Kelsey helped guide me to understand what was really important to me and what I really wanted in life. She was able to show me how to confidently admit my needs to myself and then help me see how I could achieve them. The night that I finally verbalized to her that I was ready to move back home, my boyfriend called several hours later telling me he had been offered a job and we were moving back to our home state! It was an amazing experience, and I was ready to embrace the next stage of my life because Kelsey helped to show me what I truly wanted.”

Tanny S, London, UK

“I can not say enough about the gifts, support, and tools Kelsey’s coaching has brought into my life. I worked with her for over 2 years and wow can I see a HUGE difference in my life (personally, professionally, and spiritually) due to the work we have done together. Kelsey is gifted in holding your vision, creating practical tools to help you reach your goals, and finding the right way to bring clarity and understanding to what things are getting in the way of reaching your full potential. Kelsey is truly an amazing woman to work with as she not only brings her expertise and passion to her work but most importantly she actually lives and breathes the work that she does in her own life which transfers directly into the coaching work she does with you!”

Jamie L, San Francisco, CA

“Kelsey brings the perfect balance of intellect and intuition to her work as a coach. I have observed firsthand her ability to quickly bring clarity to life’s murky waters and inspire her clients to move in the direction of their true calling with creativity and confidence. If you are navigating a big change or simply striving to cultivate more fulfillment, Kelsey is a wonderful guide.”

Kristin L, Oakland, CA

“I started coaching with Kelsey while on sabbatical and transitioning between jobs. I felt I needed a place to talk about my concerns, fears, and triumphs, and figure out the next steps. I am working through that process now. I love talking to Kelsey because for me she has the perfect combination of corporate experience and balance due to her other practices. All of our consultations are on the phone. I have never been more vulnerable and happy than in my coaching conversations with Kelsey (I have been in and out of therapy over the years, and this is proving to be much more helpful!) Kelsey’s style is completely supportive and non-judgmental. She is a great listener and has helped me to understand my values and what I want for the future.”

Debbie W, New York City, NY

“Kelsey helped me to get through a challenging time as I was transitioning out of my business. She was a great sounding board, helping me to stay focused on what was important and to advocate for myself in a much stronger way than I would have on my own. Her advice was born out of her own business experience – she was able to give perspective on what is fair and reasonable, and call out what was not. Most importantly, Kelsey helped me move through this period in a way that I felt good about and proud of: with a focus on keeping my integrity and kindness. I do believe that I ended up with a much stronger outcome (material, as much as spiritual and emotional) as a direct result of working with Kelsey!

Kate G, San Francisco, CA

“The climb towards adulthood, towards maturity and confidence, can be truly dizzying and definitely hazardous to some. Luckily for me, life delivered an amazing Sherpa for one of the most rewarding stretches that I’ve yet to scale. Kelsey mentored me for over three years, guiding me from haphazard good intentions to more intentional goodness. She truly helped me make the leap from having a job to having a career and provided not a little assistance in getting me out of some less than fulfilling romantic relationships. We talked of communication in the workplace, relationships, fathers, mothers, college, health, yoga, energy, and every topic under the sun but more importantly, Kelsey guides us by the vary way in which she interacts. Her energy, her spontaneity, her sincerity, and her constant drive towards improvement, not just of herself but of any community of thought and feeling that she takes part in, is a contagion that simultaneously ignites the heart and the mind. For three years I met with Kelsey weekly and three years later I am still thinking of and applying the things that I learned from her daily. She is a person that you will include in your list of role modes with ‘that one teacher’, your thesis advisor, the Parisian friend you made in your exchange year, and your favorite author.

Laura M, El Cerrito, CA

“Within a very quick period of time, Kelsey was able to help me see through the haze and get a clearer picture of who I am, where to go, and what to do. Her insightful assistance seemed to flow so intuitively-she really has a gift for helping people find focus and direction. I highly recommend her as a Life Coach.”

Gabrielle M, San Francisco, CA

“I was fortunate to find Kelsey during a challenging time in my life. She is amazingly caring, engaged, and insightful. Generous with her time and deeply committed to her clients, she helped me begin to bring about the changes I sought in my life. Her words, suggestions, and recommendations continue to have a positive impact on my life, and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her.
I highly recommend Kelsey to anyone looking for a skilled life coach to help them achieve their personal or professional goals.

A.G, San Francisco, CA
