Come Inside The Tent- Re Writing Your Life Story
Have you ever had the chance to turn the page of a chapter of your life and create something totally different and magnificent? What if you could make the decision today to embrace your dreams of love, passion and optimal health and never look back. Would you do it? I know that many of you are struggling and some of you are actually dying inside, suffering from what some might call herpes depression. You think that you will NEVER be able to love again and that you are so damaged now that no one will ever love you, let alone love yourself.
Overwhelmed by shame, grief, and pain?
Just diagnosed and don’t know where to turn?
Fearful of rejection?
Lost your passion for life?
I know exactly how you feel
I have walked this same path and have felt all of the emotions you are feeling right now. I can remember like it was yesterday when I was diagnosed; feeling all alone, shameful, dirty, and grieving like I had been diagnosed with breast cancer or some terminal disease. I told myself horrible things like, “I’m unworthy of love”, “No one will ever love me again”, “I’m going to be alone for the rest of my life”, and “I’ll never experience the joy of dating or falling in love again”. For many, herpes depression is a real thing and yet no one is specializing in herpes counseling or herpes therapy. But here’s the good news. Most of you don’t need a therapist, you just need a life and wellness coach who understands what you are going through and what is possible on the other side of a herpes diagnosis.
Now, take a moment and step inside our secret tent of compassion, vulnerability and possibility. This safe haven “inside the tent” is a unique opportunity to work with me personally to transcend your fears and to embrace the life of your dreams.
If I can successfully date, fall in love again, marry the man of my dreams, get married and have a healthy baby, then so can you! I’m no hero, I’m a woman just like you who wanted passion, love, connection and to feel “normal” again.
You too can Rewrite Your Story and Live the Life of Your Dreams.
It just takes a moment to decide that you no longer want to live this way; in sadness, shame and isolation….that enough is enough! You are worth the life of your dreams!
Are You Ready For Change?
Every client I work with has her own unique story to share.
At the root of almost every story is the fear of being unlovable or feeling all alone. While I am not a herpes therapist or herpes counselor, I am a change agent. I am a woman, doctor, HSV carrier, mother, wife, sister, friend, healer, author, coach and lover of life and people. I have always had this natural gift of connecting with people and hearing what isn’t said and knowing how to bring light to the darkness….to teach the shadows their grace.
I know what it takes to transform shame and pain into passion and optimal health.
I get fired up when I witness a woman reignite her power of unlimited potential. My philosophy on life and coaching is that you are perfect just the way you are. You are brilliant and beautiful and in no way are you broken. In a coaching relationship, we build upon your strengths and give you the tools to embark on your journey towards success, whatever that looks like. Want to feel confident and unstoppable in your body again? Want to feel your heart explode with love and joy? Want to rediscover your life purpose and design your life instead of reacting to life’s challenges? In therapy, you might need to relive your past, but with the coaching wisdom I have gathered over the years, we are able to divorce your past and embrace the future of your choice.
What are my fees?
After your free coaching session, I will create a coaching program that is a perfect fit for you. This is determined by what your goals are and how often you will be receiving support from me. This is an investment in your dreams and as such, it is appropriately priced.
How long does a coaching engagement last?
Typically, the shortest recommended engagement is three months, but there are clients that continue to work with me for years because of the results they receive in other areas of their lives. Typically, it takes at least 3 months to explore and clarify intended results, implement them into ones life, and to create and condition new patterns for lasting success.
Is coaching confidential?
Everything you share with me in a private coaching session is 100% confidential, unless law requires disclosure. A clear confidentiality agreement is in place for all coaching clients.
What if I’m waitlisted for individual coaching?
Due to the high demand of my individual coaching, I frequently have a waitlist for my practice. During these times, you will have the opportunity to be placed on the waitlist and I will notify you when an opening is available.
Group coaching is often an excellent resource for women who are looking to grow within a community setting. For some, the fees associated with individual coaching make group coaching an excellent alternative. Check out our group coaching offers to see if this is a fit for you.

If after reading your submission, I feel that we would make a great pair, then I will send you instructions to register for a FREE Reclaim Your Health and Happiness coaching session. This will give us the chance to see if there is synergy in a coaching relationship.
Do I work with people in person?
I coach women from around the world over the phone and/or Internet. My clients are responsible for any long distance fees.
What does a typical coaching session look like?
Most of my coaching sessions are held for 50 minutes and they are done over the phone or Internet. Each session is totally different depending on the clients needs. Some sessions focus more on the emotions of transformation, whereas others are more structured and focused on the mechanics of success. In life, 80% of success in psychological and 20% is mechanical. In coaching, we work on both for the greatest potential for outstanding results.
How do you know if you are a good candidate to personally work with me?
I am committed to educating, empowering and inspiring women to live, love and thrive. Intuition, wisdom and connected listening are the source of my power to help guide you to reach a level of health and happiness that you may have never thought was possible. If you are committed to living the life of your dreams and you’re willing to do the work, then I’m your gal. If you answer YES to most or all of these statements, then you are an excellent candidate.
I am committed to my personal growth and development.
I want to live a fulfilling, balanced life and believe it is possible.
I can be truthful with myself.
I am willing to question my assumptions and challenge myself.
I am willing to experiment with new perspectives or different ways of doing things.
I am willing to ask for what I want and need from the coach and the process.
I see coaching as a valuable investment and I have the funds to pay for coaching
I am able to stretch myself and work outside of my comfort zone.
I am accountable for the results I produce in my life.
What is the difference between therapy and life coaching?
Therapy is intended to heal or treat a disorder. I am not a therapist or counselor. The biggest difference between therapy and life coaching is that I do not believe you are broken. You are whole and complete. My job is to create an environment where you can access the wisdom and healing that lies within. This is where the magic and miracles ignite and rewrite your story. I believe in you!
Here’s what women are saying….
To a dreamer, a believer, a survivor: About a year ago, I was diagnosed with Herpes Simplex-2. While the diagnosis and emotions that come with it were overwhelming at the time, I knew I could get through it. The summer continued on and I was distracted and busy traveling. Later in the fall, life started to slow down, and I was left with my mind, my raw emotional feelings, and my reality. I was left feeling speechless, almost numb, and similar to when other horrible events have occurred in my life. I’ve had close family members pass away, and there is a grieving process that people go through when they encounter death, and sometimes you don’t know what that process is until you go through it. I hate to compare having herpes with death, but my journey over the last year has felt like a grieving process, grieving the loss of something, some way of life I once knew. I started going to a local counselor in the fall to not only address and truly recognize this new diagnosis in my life, but to really understand the feelings that were coming up from deep within me to the surface with full force. I couldn’t ignore these feelings any longer, feelings I have had for a long time, but had never been forced to pay this much attention to, until now. I didn’t realize to what extent poor self-image, lack of confidence, and overall insecurities impacted my life until then. I worked through a lot in those 2 months, knowing I was doing powerful work that would change my life, but work that also felt hard, sobering and depressing. How had I arrived here? Where would this take me? Would this diagnosis continue to define me?
“It is so exhilarating to have a voice and still know I am well. How do I know this? Because one brave and courageous woman dared to climb the mountain before us and guide us to the top; so that we would feel the beauty and splendor all around us, but mainly, and most importantly, within us. -Kimberly V.
“With your help I feel like I am a better me! I started off on this journey with a broken heart and soul; I thought I could never be loved again. Being diagnosed with Herpes has been just the toughest thing I have ever done. The first part of my healing did not happen in the gyno office! I was on the path to healing; not just the Herpes but the emotional turmoil that this tiny virus sent me through. With your genuine compassion, empathy, knowledge and concern your sessions catapulted me into a deep love for myself. Your guidance, words of wisdom, exercises and being able to hear your voice and the most significant thing in those sessions was your presence. You helped me open the doors to my life. I’m truly grateful for all that you helped me with! Graduate school is great, my self-esteem is great, and I finally feel a freedom for the first time in 2 years!Thank you, thank you, thank you,Celina B.
“Working with Dr Kelly has been lifesaving for me. Dr Kelly is kind, truly compassionate and a brilliant healer. After being diagnosed with genital herpes my world was shattered. I felt depressed confused vulnerable, and all alone. I had almost no information, and very little support. Dr. Kelly's coaching and unique holistic approach has armed me with helpful information and the tools I needed to take better control of my health and my life! As a result I feel healthier, stronger and now full of hope of the future. I still can, and will have the life that I always wanted. Working with Dr. Kelly has been a gift, and at one of the most devastating and difficult times in my life Dr. Kelly has helped me to see that there is a big bright light at the end of the tunnel.” - Sarah C.
…“For a couple years now I have just been devastated and feeling absolutely hopeless. I had been through books, late nights on the computer, tried every ointment and pill and multiple doctors, but to no avail! I was miserable with herpes!!! Then I found Dr. Kelly and was able to experience some second to none life coaching. It was during the sessions that my emotional healing began as well as my physical, she taught me they go hand-in-hand. We talked about all sorts of things because she has a holistic approach and a genuine love for people and women. I could be here all day telling you about the benefits that I received from Dr Kelly and her insight, but instead I'll just say it was well worth it and I wouldn't trade it for anything! I'm now on my way to true healing !!! And no longer am hopeless, but full of hope and love myself. - Mrs. Lynn.
"I recommend Dr. Kelly as a life coach; she’s an inspiring person to work with on a range of life issues. When I was diagnosed with genital herpes a year ago, I decided that the way forward for me was to deepen my commitment to learning how to nurture my health and happiness. Dr. Kelly’s work— her books, website and coaching— has become a valuable part of my support system. Personally, I’ve come to realize that it takes support to move beyond old self-defeating patterns and manifest a life that I love— it’s not something that happens in isolation. Dr. Kelly is a superb resource for both practical and philosophical wisdom, her breadth of life knowledge offers nourishment for the body, mind and soul— and you know it’s real, because she has walked her talk. It’s great to get to work with someone who has actively created, and continues to create, her own best life. I think Dr. Kelly has a gift for distilling her experiences into connected communication that helps people stand in their power."-April M.
“Sincere, honest, integrity, empowering, generous, kind, thoughtful, giving, loving, intelligent, and knowledgeable”… I have tried to sum up Dr. Kelly’s coaching in a sentence but I think the former adjectives describe it best. Yes, herpes is how it started but it is a small part of who I realized I am and can be. Through Dr. Kelly's coaching, I have grown and acquired tools I can use daily. I use her book as a reference but I am one who grows from personal interaction. In my past, I solicited a therapist - I believe Dr. Kelly's coaching provides therapy with a human touch. -Kathryn S
