Face the Fear and Do It Every Single Day with Kathryn Ely

Kathryn Ely is a former lawyer turned licensed counselor. After going through a career rut, Kathryn didn’t think it was possible to go back to school at 46 years old. And boy, she is glad she did. Through pursuing higher education, Kathryn discovered more things about herself, her mental roadblocks, and her limiting beliefs; things that had held her back for years. Today, she helps her clients shortcut the process so that they find out what their values are, unstick themselves, and live a life full of imperfect thriving.
