About Me


At the same time, I found Reiki (or I should say, Reiki found me). At a pivotal point during the pandemic when we were all going within, I began the practice of Reiki and have not looked back. This gorgeous divine energy came into my orbit for a reason. The practice of Reiki allows you to self-heal, self-discover and self-direct your life. It can reveal your deepest knowing and creative light by moving energy!

I began to realize that in all of my career experience, there have been resounding themes: seeing the highest potential in others, inspiring them to discover what lights them up, and motivating them to lean into the root of their creativity to follow their own path. The work I’ve always been doing, led me to Creativity & Purpose Coaching. Deep down I always knew how to shine my light. I just had to listen, and follow my own intuition. Now, I am here to help you do the same.

​The foundation of coaching states that we all have the answers inside of us; Reiki is divinely guided life force energy, the energy that lives inside you at all times. YOU have your own answers. As a coach and reiki practitioner, It's my honor to help guide you to those answers. I am here to empower you to discover your inner creativity and unleash it and express it in a way that aligns with your purpose, who you truly are on the planet. I am here to help you enhance your daily joy by allowing your unique light to shine brightly on every part of your life.  


Hi, I'm Chelsey! I have worked in the arts for over 20 years, with experience ranging from performance to non-profit arts administration to consulting with individuals and organizations. Each discipline within the arts has been beautifully fulfilling in a different way, but in the past few years I felt called to serve and help more people. While consulting, I began noticing that meetings turned into deep dives, creative brainstorming and empowerment sessions! These connections lit me up and left me buzzing! So I started asking myself: How can I have MORE of this in my work? How can I help others tap into their own light, their own purpose?
