I serve founders, entrepreneurs & high level professionals looking for a trusted partner to help them cut their business hours in half so they can focus on what's calling them next - a book,
a new venture, a social impact org, a career change, starting a family...
If you're ready to get out of stress & reactive mode - it's time to start leading from a place of internal power, connected to your highest potential, your creativity, your courage and the callings of your spirit. Let's talk.
Leading your business gets to feel simpler.
Leading your business
gets to feel simpler.
I can help.
When we work together, I am a coach. A confidant. An advisor. A witness. A healer. A guide. I help you see what you need to see and evolve what you need to evolve to run your business with more ease, trust, sustainable power and simplicity.
After getting to know one another, agreeing that working together is a good fit and establishing goals and intentions for our time together (generally, cutting your hours by half or one quarter so you can make space for what is truly calling you: A book, an artistic project, starting your family, or building another business/non-profit) we have a 3 hour deep dive where I get to know you, your business and your life. This helps fast forward our connection and allows me to give the most accurate coaching and energetic insight for you specifically. I also perform an Inner Upgrade session for you so you understand how they work and how we can incorporate them into our work together.
After that, I spend time with your Human Design, and also with your body of work. It's deeply important for me to understand your voice, your stories and your personal and professional evolution in order to meet you at the place of deepest transformation. You aren't the same as anyone else and I take the time to honor who you are and what it took you to get here.
You have access to me M-F through a video/audio messaging app for coaching, energetic insight & Inner Upgrades (healing & expansion work) as you work toward your goal of cutting your hours and following your inner calling. I'm here as you make the hard decisions, as you get stuck, or scared, or resistant. I'm here to help you actually do what you say you want to do, in alignment with your highest self & perspective. I'm here to help you honor and sustain what you've built (or burn it to the ground if that is truly the only way) as you honor what's calling you next.
I'm here for nothing less than your soul evolution - and finding a way to do that while thriving on the material plane. I don't guarantee that you will make the same amount of money you were before. You might, you might not, or you might make MORE money - but your soul will be happy, and that is what matters more to me than having an arbitrary amount of money in the bank. I say this because I've had a client who wanted a number in the bank before she would leave her high stress position. Guess what? As she finally received that windfall she'd been waiting for, she discovered she had cancer, and died six months later. She had needed to leave this situation for years and chose not to. I will never forget that lesson, and the fact that I didn't push hard enough that she should really reconsider her approach and prioritize herself above ALL else, even a huge windfall. (For clarity - I am not afraid of death for myself or my clients. But I am hyper aware of the risks of a live not fully lived or health sacrificed for the money. It's not worth it. And while I think we do live many lifetimes, we likely only live once in this particular body/design/passion/persona. That is precious and sacred to me.)
I welcome confidential conversation around topics that you may be facing, including self-doubt, finances, grief, health, motherhood/fatherhood, pregnancy and relationships. As the leader of your business, everything is connected and no subject that you want to discuss is off limits.
If you'd like to book a call to see if we're a good fit for Freedom Coaching for Founders, Executives & High Level Professionals, send me an email introducing yourself and we'll set up a call.
An unconventional path led me to the work I do. I started out as an entrepreneurial-minded singer/songwriter finding her voice while attending acting school at NYU. Just after graduating and recording my first album, I lost my voice and couldn't sing without pain. Having a health crisis at 22 that makes your chosen profession an impossibility forces a spiritual and existential crisis - I had no choice but to find another way.
I found myself working behind the counter at a Baked By Melissa (yes, those mini cupcake shops in NYC turned multi-million dollar company!) - and was inspired by seeing a successful female founder up close. Soon enough, I got scooped up by a top level vocal coach who wanted me to revamp her independent music business online program and help edit the copy on her website. This started a trail of working side by side with female founders - from social media + storytelling start ups, to performance and writing coaches, to those running music venues in Brooklyn and branding agencies in New York City and San Francisco. During that time, I developed my skills as a copywriter, content strategist, podcast producer, online course creator & marketer. From email automation to landing pages to assisting with webinars to taking sales calls, I learned how to do it all.
But what I was learning most from watching female founders in action, was how the role their own self-knowledge, commitment to well-being and integrity with themselves and in their businesses determined their success and fulfillment. I watched shaky nervous systems jump the gun and spend money on too good to be true "solutions" that they regretted later, burned out CEOs pay the physical and mental health price of dishonoring their energy levels for too long, and leaders tarnish their reputation when they stretched too far and stepped out of integrity with what they promised they could deliver. I've seen good financials turn into tax nightmares and subpar contractors hired for important work that then had to get thrown into the trash.
I also saw what it looked like when those leaders were thriving, (and took notes!) but our brains have a way of remembering mistakes, don't they? I vowed to do my best to learn from what I was seeing so that myself and others wouldn't have to repeat those same lessons unnecessarily.
Seeing my unique insight into the patterns of rising female founders, I started growing my own coaching, healing, Human Design and facilitation skills. I studied Universal Health Principles (an energetic, intuitive healing modality that moves unprocessed stress in the body), Human Design (the underlying mechanics of how to best use your energy and make decisions, and recognize when you "lose yourself" to pressure - as well as how to analyze small business for energetic success) Narrative Practice, Personal Development, Radical Productivity and Alignment with the Cycles of Nature. I also developed GUMPTION Method - a strategic process and mind-body-spirit moving meditation that tips you into wholeness-harmony-and-radiance and away from stress, uncertainty, and disconnection from yourself and your power.
I have done a lot of healing work around my voice and create one woman shows, poetry albums and other creative projects as I am called as a way to fuel my passions outside of work. Many photos on my site were taken just before my last show of poems and songs, No One Is Coming to Save You, in NYC!
In our work together, My job is to hold space for your brilliance to be honored, supported and shared with the people that need to hear it.
But I'm much more than an accountability coach. As an expert in Human Design, embodiment, and energy healing, I help you do the work underneath the work. Understanding yourself, honoring your rhythms and strengths, healing familial and patriarchal trauma,

We will most likely be an ideal match if....
You run a multi-six or early 7-figure business.
You are as spiritually inclined as you are business inclined.
You identify as a creative, a rebel, or both.
I bring a few modalities to my practice that enhance what I offer and that you won't find with most coaches and advisors. The first is, Human Design.
Human Design is a map that shows you who you were born to be and a tool that helps you stop being who you aren't. Similar to astrology (but much more strategic and practical), your Human Design Bodygraph reflects the underlying mechanics that make you, you. It can reflect back your deepest truth, as well as unhelpful patterns that have been making life and leadership difficult. By understanding your Human Design, you can see what is a consistent strength of yours and an energy that you can trust - and where you tend to get off track because of pressure. This self-awareness allows you to gain wisdom, not only about yourself, but about how others are using their energy, making you a more graceful and skilled CEO. Through understanding yourself at this level, you make better decisions, feel more relaxed, satisfied and at peace. I help you synthesize and embody the knowledge of this system as you reach your goals.
Additionally, Human Design can analyze the energetics of your core team to determine where your underlying issues are in terms of the power and sustainability of your business. With permission and buy-in from your team, it is incredibly powerful to get an energetic picture of your company and engineer a more cohesive structure that will make your life easier.
Inner Upgrade Sessions are based on the fundamental notion that communication flow creates health at a physical, emotional and energetic level. The techniques, (taught to me initially as Universal Health Principles (UHP) allow me to tap into the innate wisdom of your body and help you dissolve unprocessed stress in a digestible way. When we do this, the tension created from the physical, mental, emotional or environmental stress you've been holding gets released and you feel more peaceful, trusting and aligned with creating in connection with your spiritual self rather than having to do it all alone.
GUMPTION Method is a holistic strategy and energy preparation tool. Connected to the 7 primary energy centers of the human body, GUMPTION can be used as a way to get clarity around what's most important to you as well as prepare yourself for important meetings, speaking opportunities, recording content, and simply starting your day with focus, vitality and presence.

“I’ve been in personal development as a customer and service provider for over 10 years. I still wouldn’t know how to describe Kerri's Energy Upgrade work other than... it’s MAGIC. I don’t know why or how, but it works.
It works best for the things you sense, but can’t find words for. Or when you know you want things to be different, but are unclear about why you’re still stuck. Or if you feel conflict (between yourself and yourself, or yourself and others), and want more ease and flow.
More than just Energy Upgrades, I deeply appreciate the attuned and aligned guidance Kerri created for me. The channeler is just as important as the channel. Kerri and UHP are a potent mix. I’ve brought Kerri in to work with some of my own clients. That’s how much I trust her and this incredible service she offers. I recommend Kerri without reservation to anyone looking for more ease, clarity, and freedom.”
