Want 1:1 Support for your story?

Do you want to experience freedom from your past and agency in your present?

Do you ever think…

  • I need help understanding my past and how it has impacted me

  • I could never share this.
  • I feel confused about why I react the way I do in certain circumstances

  • I feel stuck, like I can't make progress in life

  • I feel shame and confusion about what happened to me

  • I’m tired of being reactive with my kids, spouse, friends or parents

  • I want to learn how to feel calm

  • I want to break unhelpful patterns and habits

  • I want help learning how to write, engage and understand my past story

  • I want to feel better and learn how to enjoy my life

Getting Started

If the answer is yes, there is support, care and help for you.

Individual work begins with a 60 minute consult & discovery call.

You'll tell me about your story. I’ll go over my unique story engagement process, and together we’ll explore your specific needs and desires to determine how to get you to the place you want to be.

Time to get unstuck and start living.

No more wasted time on the past. Or letting your past run away with your future.

You're worthy.

I'm Lora Kelley.

I'm an Allender Center Certified Story Work Coach, a Master Certified Life Coach, and a somatic body support practitioner.

I help people understand their stories, and I help people feel better.

I started where you are... 
Looking for help.

After almost a decade of work, I created a 'non- linear' process, utilizing all that I have learned, to help people recover from the impact of trauma while supporting their present lives.

I believe in the power of beautiful and enduring repair.

I’m also singer & songwriter, poet, a wife of 14 years, and a mother of three young children (3, 10 & 13).

We live in the blue ridge mountains.

You were meant for beautiful things.

Deep transformation awaits you.

Are you ready?

Come join me.
