THE HEALING ARTS | True Purpose Coaching

Each of us has a unique purpose in life, something we were most designed to do and to be. Living a life of true purpose requires self-discovery, commitment, and a willingness to grow. Personal growth invites us to move past our comfort zone and explore new possibilities. For years I mistook talent for purpose; our purpose is what we do with our talents.

Kelly Richey takes her clients through processes designed to help individuals identify the specific obstacles that hold back from doing what they truly love. “I know from personal experience that this process enables you to identify what you were best designed to do and to be in this life,” explains Kelly. The core mission of this work is two-fold: 1) to create a safe space for people to heal themselves, and 2) to inspire those who seek deeper meaning in their lives.


True Purpose Coaching is a process that helps you learn to identify the difference between the internal conversations in your mind and the true calling you feel in your heart. This process may include prayer, meditation, contemplation, dream work, and “active imagination,” a Jungian listening and writing technique, depending on your own personal beliefs.


As a True Purpose coach, Kelly finds that most people know what they feel called to do, but not how to do it. When we’re young adults, life is geared toward exploration, education, developing skills, gaining experience, and forging a path that we hope to be uniquely our own. Yet the reality is that we all need to earn a living, and if we choose a partner and decide to have children, what’s important to us becomes only one factor in a life that is shared with the people we love. It’s typically not until mid-life that people begin to question the deeper meaning of their lives – especially once their children grow up and leave home, or they lose a parent or close friend. The True Purpose process teaches you how to build a new relationship with yourself and continue that relationship for the rest of your life.
