What clients have to say
1. Connection: Kaelan makes me feel seen and understood. When we’re talking about an issue I am facing, I really like how he tells parallel stories about events in his life. I reinforces the notion that what I am going through is normal and relatable. That someone else can understand. That someone else has been there too. I find it comforting and reassuring.
2. Insight: I have nearly two decades of life on Kaelan. I did initially wonder if he had had enough life experience to help me. I needn’t have worried. Kaelan brings a wealth of insight to our sessions, and I am continually impressed with how he can see past the presenting problem and get to the heart of the matter. He comes to his work with true wisdom.
3. Acceptance: Sometimes, we talk about situations where I have a choice to react in this way or that. Logically, it may be a clear choice, but I take my time, because I am sorting through emotional baggage. Kaelan is remarkably patient. He lets me be where I am at, and I never feel pressure to choose one option over another. On one occasion, he did share with me what he might do in the same situation. But when I made the opposite choice, he showed understanding and compassion. He really seems to accept me wherever I am in my journey.
I’m very happy working with Kaelan. I have been with three other life coaches before him, and I really like the unique set of skills and knowledge that he brings to our sessions. I wouldn’t hesitate for an instant in recommending him to anyone who is on a journey of growth and self-discovery.”
How do sessions work?
Kaelan meets with individuals for one hour a week. The meetings can be virtual or in-person (if local to Washington, DC). He asks for a 3-month commitment to give time for growth to take root. Change takes time to become observable, and having 12 weeks together gives sufficient time to assess how much development has occurred. He assigns daily homework that will take approximately 30-45 minutes to complete.
