Support for the intense, gifted, creative & sensitive

...and the people who love them

Living well with intensity is possible.

Whether it's in the family room, classroom, boardroom, or beyond, unsupported intensity and overwhelm do not have to hijack your life.

When I say "unsupported intensity," I'm referring to that overwhelming too-muchness that hijacks our best intentions and keeps us stuck in places we don't want to be. 

Maybe you're a gifted, twice-exceptional or highly creative person who wrestles with complex, non-stop thinking, intense feeling, and a relentless drive towards something more. You might also be overcome with anxiety, anger, despair, and burnout with everything arising in our world at this time.

Or perhaps you're a parent overwhelmed with an amazing and intense child or teen, wondering how to support them ... and yourself. 

However unsupported intensity is showing up for you, my guess is you're overwhelmed ... and misunderstood. And you just want to find some peace and confidence so you can get on with the life you know deep down you (and your loved one) are meant to live. I get it.   

The good news is:

Life with intensity can be rich + meaningful.

You can learn how to understand + support intense inner experience, honor sensitivity,
and channel intensity in generative, authentic ways.



Hi, I'm Kelly.

I've been supporting people struggling with intensity and overwhelm  including myself and my family — for almost two decades. I'm a coach and meditation teacher with a PhD in neuropsychology . . . and personal expertise in the three outs of intensity: burnout, bumout, and freakout.

The truth I've learned about intensity is that we must be able to support ourselves and our inner experience in order to live, love, and lead in sustainable ways. 

Knowing this truth, my goal is simple: to help you understand intensity and your unique mind, and learn practical tools that will enable you to live with more ease, clarity, creativity, compassion, and most importantly, happiness.


You can learn more about me and my journey with intensity here and on my blog. And if you scroll down, you can learn more about the ways I help people understand and transform intensity in their lives. 


I'm glad you're here. I hope I can offer you something that helps you on your journey.
